run, run, run is all you will do working for rehabcare. Their producitivity standards is an impossible 90% now. They basically expect their employees to work off the clock, which is what most therapists do to meet their impossible standards. Our rehab manager now reads each person's productivity out loud at weekly meetings. That is all management is concerned with; quantity of care. There is no concern about quality of care or quality of work for the employees.Management is a mess and so therapists end up doing way too much administrative work (which they end up having to clock out for, of course!) This has got to be the most stressful, dysfunctional and overall unhealthy environment to work in. It is crash and burn and no one can last here long. Run away and don't even consider working for rehabcare.
high productivity requirements, dysfunctional management
wow- I don't even know what state your company is in but how awful! And I thought it is bad that our place makes us write the individual productivity numbers in a paper chart posted on communication board- to me this is like treating me like a dog and rubbing my nose in a mess. I am a therapist at another rehab company (and I'm being fired for not meeting the productivity standards). so much of you and others at your place say is cathartic to me, as same thing at my place. I hope somehow, someway we as therapists can effect change. I do my best to serve my patients- so sad that these contract companies are more money focused than patient focused. God bless all of us and our patients.
Job Work/Life Balance
enjoyed the interaction with the people
Bartender (Current Employee) – Peanutz Bar Pittsburgh, PA – February 9, 2016
The job itself was nice, enjoyed being around and interacting with all sorts of people. The owners of the bar Peanutz Bar are racist though and very ignorant.
Director (Former Employee) – Washington – February 3, 2016
Worked for the company for 5+ years with no issues. The healthcare industry really placed employees in situations to boost a productive environment yet depended on the patient's level of participation.
Wellness Coordinator (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – January 27, 2016
Terrible leaders and dishonesty all over the place. You walk in on a typical day and never know who will be there or who will not. Turnover rate is huge. Leaders are angry people who are full of fake smiles and lies. The pay is the worst in the industry. Co-workers are sad and unhappy, nobody is happy to come into work.
NURSE LIAISON (Former Employee) – Little Rock, AR – December 30, 2015
updates, pt, assessments, verify insurance and start precerts. Over the other marketing liaisons. Participated in marketing events.the hardest part of my job was again disappointing the patients and the most enjoyable part was being a key player in their road to recovery.
Ability to grow by developing relationships at all Little Rock Hospitals
Program Director (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – December 21, 2015
RehabCare has been a great employer. Granted, we have relinquished some things over the years, such as paid holidays and overtime, but the team at my facility works well together, works hard and has the patient's best interests in mind.
COTA/L (Former Employee) – Bethlehem, PA – December 19, 2015
Rehabcare like a lot of companies have become to focused on productivity and not the PT. Placing all pt in ultra high category to get the most money. Not listening to therapist recommendation of what category is proper at times. Hiring to many therapist then cutting hours. Overall Rehabcare benefits are equal to other companies. Bottom line to all companies is how your program director treats you and your co workers.
Wellness Center Coordinator (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – December 8, 2015
I have only been at this job for three week. A typical work day is doing senior fit test, exercise program/lectures and reporting. My co-workers are very supportive, sweet and very easy to get along with. The most enjoyable part of my job is being with patients and clients.
Great people to work with (co-workers and patients)
Unsure of how many hours I will be working each week
passed staff (Former Employee) – West Lafayette, IN – December 4, 2015
This is a beautiful facility with wonderful residents. The management of both the rehab department is corrupt, manipulative and controlling. It is unfortunate that patient care is compromised just to fit into the "in crowd". They compromise the well being of the residents just to keep the money flowing. Blame will be passed when their own inadequacies are revealed, especially the management.
high demands for productivity, controlling and manipulative
Program Director (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 13, 2015
Company educates and train their directors. Management is somewhat supportive. Directors report to many people, that is; regional, vice presidents, operations , marketing, and host facility administration. Hardest part of the job is keep up with all the responsibilities assigned by the company and the host facility. Difficult to keep everyone happy and respond to all requirements. Focus is on bottom line not on staff considerations or patient satisfactions.
Physical Therapy Assistant / Clinical Instructor (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – October 14, 2015
I am currently a PRN therapist and feel that i am satisfied with the conditions at this point ion my career. The hardest part of working part time is getting accustomed to the different skilled nursing facilities
changes in policy, and the recent merging of companies
Occupational Therapist (Current Employee) – lubbock,tx – September 14, 2015
Company is a decent one to work for. Worked for them for 4 years and no raises in that time. Offers decent benefits. Required to work weekends and holidays very hard to get time off. Unrealistic documentation and productivity requirements. Evaluating therapists are required to write ALL notes assistants do not have to do any documentation
