Supportive supervisors; good rapport among interdisciplinary co-workers; education opportunities

For 5 years I worked on the rehabilitation floor with a case load of typically 5 to 6 patients. Busy but satisfying. I had a very good experience with management. From the Rehab director to my immediate supervisor, I felt they were supporting me with listening and offering ideas.
I enjoyed working with the interdisciplinary team - cooperative and fun people.
Probably a difficult part of the job was to schedule my patients at times when other therapists also needed to see them. I recall, though, that most of us were willing to negotiate a deal!
The best part of my job at Resurrection was treating a variety of patients: all ages, ethnic backgrounds, diagnoses and challenges. Helping people progress has always been the best part of my job.
