Billing Account Rep - Select Medical (Current Employee) – Mechanicsburg, PA – October 11, 2016
I enjoy the people I work with , and the fact that I am always busy. The benefits are great , however everyone's biggest complaint here is the pay rate . Quarterly bonuses are possible but not always promised .
Unless you don't mind not having a life don't work here
Occupational Therapist (Former Employee) – New Hampshire – October 7, 2016
I would say the benefits and PTO were good and I liked my co workers and patients. Management and administration is a different story. I went through 3 DORs before I completed a year of employment there, they either quit because they were fed up with the building or were forced out by administration of the building. Management constantly criticizes for productivity that is under 90% but does not give solutions to fix that or on documentation issues. Expect you to work overtime and to wait for new admissions to evaluate on the first day even when you do not have any work to do as all treatments are done and expect you to sit around even if it ends up being a two hours plus wait or if the patient comes at all. I could go over more but i don't want to ramble on. I would recommend not working for this company there are better places out there keep looking it is not worth it to work here.
Benefits, Co-workers are nice, patients are nice
Excessive overtime, management is incompetent, no hope for advancement
Physical therapist assistants help patients do specific exercises as part of the plan of care. Physical therapist assistants, sometimes called PTAs, and physical therapist aides work under the direction and supervision of physical therapists.
The night starts out with me getting report from day shift. I then check each of my patients charts to gather information Re: each patient. Ex: code status, Npo, foleys,ostomys etc. I introduce myself to each patient on my first set of rounds and let them know that I will be with them until 7am.( work 12 hour shifts) 9 patients is this most that I've had since I've been employed here. That's a lot...These patients are really sick and needs a lot of attention. The RN usually have either 4 to 5 patients per night. They are not above giving patients baths, helping to reposition or answering any call lights... which is a big help. The pay is not very good here.. for a hospital...you may be able to survive with a prn job on the side. The supervisors are pleasant to work with and do not mind helping you either. Upper management seems to be okay. Haven't really had to deal with them since I've been here..That may be a good thing. We have an amplion system for call lights and patient requests For Ex: if they ask for ice..it will ring your phone and show up on TV monitor you accept it or deny it depending on what you are doing..Then it will ring someone else's phone on the floor for them to assist that patient. This job is physically hard and mentally rewarding. If you don't enjoy helping people and you are just looking for a paycheck. You will be very disappointed...I am here to make life a little easier on our patients..i came on with the understanding that I was not going to strike it rich...but if I can make a difference in someone's life. That would be my bonus.
All disciplines working together for one great outcome
Patient Service Specialist/Receptionist (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA 19147 – June 15, 2016
I do enjoy working for Nova Care ( Select Medical) . I have learned how to verify insurances what Out of pocket, and Deductibles mean. How to answer high volume of calls. The hardest part about my job is that I work alone, I am the only Receptionist here in this office so I am very much relied on. The most enjoyable part of my job is interacting with the patients.
Great coworkers, horrible and uncaring management and doctors
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Wyandotte, MI – April 29, 2016
My coworkers were like my second family. Management was horrible. They would say one thing and then do another behind your back. We went through 2 CEOs, 2 CNOs, and 4 RT managers in the 3 years I was there. The doctors only cares about how much money they were making. Most didn't even go into the rooms, just looked at the labs and write some orders. A lot of the orders would contradict each other. Horrible doctor to doctor communication. As long as management and doctors were making their bonuses, that's all that mattered. All they want are order following monkeys, no brain required.
Short to no breaks, still on the stoneage of paper charting, terrible benefits
Former employee (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – April 17, 2016
Select Specialty Hospital gives superior care to patients. I would recommend this facility over all other LTACS in Tulsa. The problems are with the structure of jobs. Managers wear too many hats, have too many responsibilities to be successful and feel like you are doing a good job. In a regular hospital, there would be 3 separate people doing my job. The same goes for every manager there. The stress and constant micro managing of upper management is not worth the low pay. If Select is going to run like a small hospital, they need to staff like a hospital. No one can be expected to run multiple departments, be micro managed, and have low pay. The corporation must be making lots of money by using this model that keeps workers feeling depleted but makes upper management big bonuses.
Very caring immediate co-workers, very competent and caring people to work with, clinically
Company culture, old school management style. micro management by upper management, not a fun working environment, due to CEO, CNO
This company does not care at all about their employees. The acuity is always wrong. They are always understaffed, nurses have anywhere from 5 patients on day shift and 6+ on night shift with no aids or monitor techs. There are many days where there are no aids on the unit. The nurses do not get to take lunches even though they are docked for them, nurses don't have breaks throughout the day, and the nurse manager is nowhere to be found on the unit, no matter how much everyone is struggling due to short staffing. The upper management sit in their offices, if they even come in, and have their doors closed. The morale is nonexistent in the North location. The management does not care about nurses working hard to take care of their patients, they only care about bringing in new admissions even without the proper staffing. Many nurses stay over to finish their work and are given points because they do not want to leave this work for the next shift. I would never recommend this company to anyone even as a last resort. Every nurse in this facility is putting their license on the line every day. Again management does not care about it's employees, most the time management is not present in the facility. Do yourself a favor and run as fast as you can from this company, losing your license isn't worth it!!!
Patient Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Westernport, MD – January 29, 2016
The job itself was ok, Pay was fair. Benefits were provided. Not a bad company overall to work for. However, the particular location I worked at had a serious problem with the center manager. There were two sets of rules. One for her and one for all other employees. All other employees were great.
fair pay, benefits, fun place to work
Center manager on serious power trip, Medical benefits were to expensive to use.
No room to move up and no one to cover if you have sick kids
PSS (Former Employee) – MN – November 23, 2015
There is absolutely no room for advancement, and you can never get a covered time off to attend to a sick child. The manager (at least the one I had) was very "big headed" and selfish. He had no consideration for people with children which of course he didn't have any. He would also talk about the patients after they left. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. They just really made you dread going to work every single day.
Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – October 22, 2015
