Rehab is very successful and does a great job getting people healthy and ready for home. There is constant turnover with new rehab patients. A typical day at work would be staying on top of Discharges and new Admissions coming in ensuring paperwork is created for tracking, room changes are noted, Identification sheets are complete.
What I have learned is that patience is a virtue with our residents and family members. Sometimes this can apply to co-workers also.
The hardest part of the job is communication. What I need to keep my job going smoothly, as well as what I can do to keep management going smoothly.
The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with the residents and staff.
