I enjoyed helping patients and educating them on tool to achieve a better quality of life.
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – September 13, 2016
I enjoyed my job immensely. Working with people with disabilities is so rewarding. I did not work alone. There were physicians, nurses, case managers, physical therapist, occupational therapists, and speech therapist. We all worked together; we were a team.
Van Driver (Former Employee) – Evansville, IN – September 12, 2016
I drove a handicap van and picked up patients and brought them in for therapy and returned them either to the hospital or to their homes I was a on call driver when needed and never failed to respond on any day they called me in.
My typical day at work is anticipating on leaving from there. What I've learned from working there are that people aren't as keen as you thought they were. Management wise is somewhat ordinary. I tolerate most of my co-workers for the most part The hardest part of the job is on Tuesdays which is grocery day, I have to put up groceries as well as finish my task which could be stressful at times. The most enjoyable part of the job is my lunch break
Marketing nurse Liasion (Former Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – August 19, 2016
They do not care about their employees . People that have been there for 20yrs. Or more if they aren't of use to them anymore they will think of a reason for them to go!, or make things so difficult they are forced to quit!!
Great place to work with nice people and helpful staff
Rehabilitation Technician (Current Employee) – Homewood, AL – August 18, 2016
I love working here at HealthSouth. Its a great job and I find great satisfaction in helping those who need help. The bosses and co-workers are friendly people. I can truly say that I enjoy going to work daily.
I am a former employer of Healthsouth. Sadly we were bought out by Post Acute Medical. It is too soon to judge the changes however working for Healthsouth has been wonderful. I look forward to working with my co-workers. we are a true team and work together. We love our patients and the independence we provide for them. Overall excellent place to work.
A typical day at work consisted of carrying a load of 12-18 patients who all required maximum assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting, transferring, etc. ON MY OWN. The majority of the nurses never helped with patient care and worked the techs into the ground. Management is NOT oblivious to the issue, they just do not care. Director of Nursing and Nurse Manager are both useless and do not care a bit for their employees. Hardest part of the job was going in knowing I was going to leave in an immense amount of physical pain from lifting and pulling on 200lbs+ patients for 12 hours. I drove home in tears some days because of the severe pain from the shift I just worked. Did I mention I'm only 21 years old? Leaving a shift in so much pain that I could hardly move the next day? Highly recommend you do NOT work for this company.
Rehab Nurse Tech (Former Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – August 3, 2016
I have recently left. I worked full time nights. I worked with great Techs. Some of the nurses not so much. But most are wonderful. One of the night surpervisors was incredible. This one supervisor went above and beyond to help us tech and nurses. Pay was decent but not after benefits, of course that's optional. What little I was around the CNO she was good. The work load is a lot. At times 6 or more hard Max2 transfers that are incontinent all night long with only 2 techs. Some nurses tend to place blame. Blame is usually put on tech. If I had a major complaint it's that some employees aren't given the benefit of the doubt. If a patient complains, depending on management for the night, it's automatically the techs fault regardless of the situation or circumstances. But all in all, it's a decent place with mostly great people.
Case Manager II (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – August 3, 2016
As soon as I got to work I was already hours behind on the things to do, lots of stress and no support from employer. They expect you to take verbal and physical abuse from patients, family members and even from some of the doctors. If something goes wrong is the case manager fault but if everything goes right, it is team work! The management hires friends without concerns of experience. Never get out on time, it is a salary position because sometimes you spend 12 to 14 hours a day, no worth it. Very bad place to work for,
It could a lot be better if everyone did their job!!
Current Employee (Current Employee) – Texarkana, TX – July 30, 2016
It would be a lot better if everyone did their own job instead of slacking and making it hard for everyone else! I've tried talking to my supervisor but it doesn't do any good!! I DON'T GET PAID FOR DOING MY JOB AND EVERYONE ELSE'S!!
Well rounded employers with focus on respect and profesionalism
PRN COTA (Current Employee) – Evansville, IN – July 6, 2016
Very enjoyable work place with good teamwork and excellent learning environment. Management display courteous, professionalism, and respect that is very evident in the happiness of coworkers. We have an excellent rehab to home record.
RN (Former Employee) – Round Rock, TX – June 30, 2016
Health South of Round Rock has a horrible record of patient safety. Three deaths within a month due to nurse/patient ratio. This is a rehab facility. Patients should come to us whenever they are healthy enough to do a little rehab and then go home. We receive patients who should never be sent our way. Our liasons should never accept these patients, but they do; knowing that we don't have the proper staff to take care of them. The CEO is over 3 hospitals in Austin, so he's never around to make sure that the hospitals are safe. He bounces back and forth between the 3 facilities. He only cares about our census and that we stay full. Nurses are overworked. Staff is treated unfairly. If it comes down to choosing between nursing staff or administration, administration always wins out. They say they have an open door policy, but if you do try to talk to administration about the staff's needs, they will eventually fire you for being insubordinate. I can't tell you how many good, hardworking, honest employees I've seen walked out the door and fired for caring too much. If you are a terrible nurse you have job security and can work there forever. Health South only cares about the mighty dollar. Nurses are told if we have a "charity" patient, which I think should never happen. Why should we know if a patient has insurance or not? We should deliver great care regardless of whether they are charity or not. Most of our administration folks are LVN's. They don't have bachelor degrees or their RN for that matter, which tells you that Health South isn't looking for overlymore... educated people to be in charge of education, quality or HR for that matter. They just want warm bodies to fill the slots. Benefits are okay. Pay is okay. Work atmosphere is terrible. Leadership is the worst! I don't trust any of them.less
pay is good
patient to staff ratio is terrible, patients are losing their lives due to poor staffing
Working at healthsouth has been a pleasure the management are on site or able to be reached. It is hard work but enjoyable. My coworkers are like family. The hardest part of my job would have to be the bathing or trying to let the patient no that we are not going to harm them, in words that would not offend them in the least. The most enjoyable is that we all no each other and we work together as a team. The patients and their family's get to no you and that can be a lot of fun.
dress down day, favorite teams day, crazy hat day etc.
