Busy Work Envrionment
Rehab Office Coordinator (Former Employee), Matthews, NCSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: fun co-workers
Cons: poor management
A typical day at GRS was very busy and chaotic. Many changes would need to be made on a rapid basis and this could often cause much confusion among staff members. I did, however, enjoy my time at this former job and for the most part enjoyed the people I worked with.

Nurses Assistant (Former Employee), Cinnaminson, NJSeptember 4, 2014
Cons: short breaks
A Typical Day at work would consist of communicating with the elderly. Assisting to patient needs daily and providing proper care needed to fulfill their day. I learned that my patients depend on me to complete and enjoy their days throughout the week. My co-workers all work together as a team to fulfill these patients needs. The hardest part of the – more... job was the lifting. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to make patients happy and making them feel loved. – less

Made to feel as if you are always replaceable as an employee
PT (Former Employee), IllinoisAugust 25, 2014
Pros: wages
Cons: unethical, fraudulant, productivity-centered, not patient-centered
From the day you begin work you learn that you are merely there to maximize earnings at the detriment of you as a professional. Orientation is lacking. The rehab directors are put under extreme pressure to make sure their therapists are productive. Therapists are expected to pick patients up for therapy who are not therapy material to maximize dollar – more... for Genesis and the SNF's they are contracted with. If therapists indicate the inappropriateness of therapy for particular pts and are able to justify why, rehab directors become angry and you become targeted for disciplinary action in the future. Regional Directors show up and demand at meetings that therapists "find" reasons to bring pts onto caseload because the nursing home wants to make more money. The retention rate of Genesis staff is poor because they treat staff poorly. They make you feel replaceable, but newsflash Genesis, employers are replaceable too. If you mistreat your employees, they will tell as many people as possible about you. Genesis capitalizes their profits by hiring new grads who need to be trained by an already stretched staff. If Genesis continues the practice of mistreating their staff, the only canditates they will have to hire will be new grads because the experienced therapists will know all about Genesis. Genesis continues to tighten the noose on therapists because they are losing contracts. If you can be a slave to Genesis and a butt-kisser you may last 5 years. If you have a mind of your own and you are unwilling to be fraudualant and unethical, you are at risk for eventual firing. Look out for yourself because they will not for you. – less

Treatment of clients to maximize independece through ADL training, psychological training, physical strengthening, and environmental adaptations.
Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (Current Employee), Reading, PAAugust 22, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: constant new co-works, buildings and clients
Typical day includes study of client's needs, goals, deficits and medical history. Treatments begin with one to two morning ADLs then therapy gym treatments with focus on ADLs. Learned many intervention activities and how to stay focused on functional abilities of clients to perform occupations. As a PRN employee I have worked with a wide variety of – more... clients and co-workers who are most often willing to help if I have questions or educate me on facility policy and most effective treatments. Hardest part for me was traveling to varying facilities always treating new clients and working with new people in new buildings. Really enjoy the learning experience and flexibility of work hours. – less
