Terrible Place to work...
LPN (Current Employee), Florence, SCMarch 20, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: micromanaging supervisors
The First 3 months were ok. But after that.. Changes out of no where. HR is one person who seems as if she makes her on rules up as she go. I wouldn't advise anyone to wanna even stay there . The Nursing staff is UNDERSTAFFED!! So when the call lights go out there's little help for the patients. But that's how they save money. Oh and let's not forget about the census.. That never stays up. So don't expect a full pay check. I could go on and on...

Awful
nurse (Current Employee), lower alabamaMarch 13, 2015
Pros: free pay day breakfast
Cons: pay, short break, management, too many meetings, expect miracles
As a current employee at Healthsouth, I can say stay away! Always changes and not for good. Thanks managers and above only care about scores of 5 on patient satisfaction without taking into consideration of how to get that score. The managers treat nurse like McDonald's employees. No respect for the staff. Piling more and more on nurses and expect patient to score 5 on satisfaction. What a joke, always expecting the impossible for nurses and getting talked like a dog to if the nurse can not get to it! The techs absolutely get away with not doing their job. What is there job description? To do baths. Nurse answer most call lights and take pts to restroom and document and give meds and do assessment and discharges and admissions and god forbid if something goes wrong and we slip up and don't see patient right then another trip to office. Never do the nurses get help. The supervisor can not help for all the extra work that is put on them. A recipe for total disaster. There is a high overall turn over rate for nurses here. Some nurses just don't come back when they get off. Does management care? Do they understand why this happens? No, they just hire more and expect miracles!! My blood boils just thinking about it!!! This could be a great place to work but not until management changes the way they think. Sad.

Below Average
Rehab Tech (Former Employee), Birmingham,ALFebruary 23, 2015
Pros: good learning experience
Cons: poor work environment
The pay wasn't good at all. If you weren't a higher up they didn't care about you. Management strictly all about profit and numbers. The foundation of the lakeshore facility needs a makeover from corporate down to the techs. They over work the tech staff in nursing and look down on the tech staff in the therapy department.

very unstable workplace
Housekeeper (Former Employee), Wichita, KSFebruary 19, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: to much favortism
felt that I was doing all the work by myself because I was the late person and worked alone mostly and had a lot of responsibility that should have been handled by supervisor, lack of communication between co-workers and supervisor.

Worst place to work
kitchen (Former Employee), new jerseyFebruary 18, 2015
Worst management team I have ever worked for. No discipline , ignorant employees that brag about collecting food stamps and section eight housing. Back stabbing senior management afraid of firing minority employees.

Great therapy environment, low pressure... but that may change
FT Occupational Therapist (Former Employee), ArizonaFebruary 17, 2015
Pros: great equipment, put the therapy patient first, good ceu reimbursement
Cons: horrible starting pay, no career improvement, no hope of pay raise
Started out as a great place for a therapist to work. Good team, low pressure for productivity, all about the patient, excellent equipment, great training. The pay is super low, but that's always the case in acute inpatient. Things might be changing soon as now they're moving to a minute based rehab rather than a unit based rehab schedule. The pressure is on to bill those therapy hours. Everyone is feeling it. As I was leaving I noticed they were beginning to admit more and more and MORE patients who were "less appropriate" for 3 hours of daily therapy. Many were medically unstable, came from long LTAC stays, and just couldn't handle such a demanding therapy schedule. I never felt asked to do anything unethical, but I could feel it coming. I was glad to get out when I did.

$32 per hour with my student loans....I actually went into debt to work here. I couldn't keep it up anymore.

Very unprofessional management
RN (Former Employee), Sunrise, FLFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: good payrate, always overtime available
Cons: management, cafeteria, poor staffing
CNO is rude, plays favorites, favors therapy staff over nurses. Too many patients, never adequate staffing. The pay is high Bc no one stays very long. Management is ignorant and becomes testy when nurses question authority. Very little room for growth without kissing up to management.

Horrible Place
Staff Nurse (Former Employee), Largo,FLJanuary 29, 2015
Pros: benefits
Cons: low pay
I have never worked for a company and dealt with a more disrespectful, unprofessional group of woman. Management uses fear to manage staff. Unsafe working conditions. Nurse to patient ratio is dangerous. Hardest part of job is heavy and unsafe patient load, heavy medication pass and trying to stay within the limits of company policy. Lower management contributes to low moral of nursing staff. People frequently quit and turn over is high.The culture within this company is horrible. The CNO and Supervisors are like school yard bullies. I would not remind this place to anyone.

Human Resource Information Systems Specialist (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALNovember 29, 2014
I learned a lot during my tenure. I will take what I've learned and grow from it. Moving onward to share my knowledge and hopefully grow even more at my next place of employment. I wish the very best to my coworkers and the company. I will miss the daily routine and the satisfaction I received from helping our hospital staff nationwide.
