Per Diem Occupational Therapist (Current Employee) – Wallingford, CT – October 8, 2017
As a student and per diem therapist Gaylord Specialty Healthcare was absolutely phenomenal and an amazing place to learn. The evaluation and treatment they provide to their clients is outstanding and they truly care about advancing their employees to reach their most full potential.
I currently work on the traumatic brain injury unit. I am responsible for all aspects of patient care and safety. It is also my responsibility to multitask and maintain accurate charting of vitals, intake output, weights, re positioning and transfers of all patients and report to the incoming shift. Seeing my Patients recovery from serious accidents is definitely the most enjoyable part of working at Gaylord.
Great nurses and staff! It was a lot to learn. And you literally get to witness miracles happen on a daily basis. It was a pleasure to work here. So many great programs also for employees and the food is amazing
I completed my final clinical affiliation at Gaylord and absolutely loved it. The environment was fasted paced and challenging including both patients that were medically complex as well as those with neurological conditions. I had a fantastic learning experience at this clinical affiliation.
I have gained a variety of clinical experience in this LTACH from rehab to complex medical patients. The teamwork within the units is exceptional. I would recommend this facility to peers and patients.
