Productive and fun work community for internship
SOCIAL WORK INTERN (Former Employee) –  Napa, CASeptember 19, 2014
A typical day included attending morning stand-up meeting, getting ready for the day such as collecting chart information for new patients and review for meetings. Also conducted initial assessments, and family meetings, social visits, completed forms, completed discharge checklists.
I learned how to develop relationships with patients, how to ask complex questions, how to manage difficult or unfriendly patients, and how to time manage between patients.
Management of the facility was informative on what precautions to take on certain situations. My personal overall management varied for day to day depending on number of patients and situations that arose.
Co-workers were welcoming, friendly, fun, and helpful in various different aspects.
The hardest part of the internship was time limited, and when a patient's health declined.
The most enjoyable part was getting to know the patients and the community developed.

Great national chain, worked for them many times in various states.
OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVNovember 5, 2012
They want 88% billable productivity which can be difficult to ethically handle, but I end up clocking my self out early while still in the facility.

Recruiters are difficult to reach when you actually need them.

Great company overall, well runned, time tested.

I originally worked for this company in 2006 when it was all 100% Beverly when in Live Oak Florida.

I recommend this company.
national company in multiple states.
can't think of anything unusal.
