The admissions coordinator is the dedicated peron who makes sure that all transfers into the facility are seamless, which includes making sure we have authorization from the Insurance carrier for the admission, communicating to the team/ceo about any special equiptment needed for the hospital stay, air mattress, clinitron bed,wound vac etc.
Management here is awesome, they share last years accomplishments and give us a sense of what our current goals should be regarding quotas and overall perfomance for the hospital.
The hardest part of my job is building relationships with patients and families then seeing them leave the hospital although very happy to see them transition to a lower level of care.
The most enjoyable part of my job is getting to participate in the advancement of treatment here at Select Specialty Hospital, I enjoy greeting the patients upon arrival and making sure that the accommodations for their hospital stay are in place, and that when they leave, they feel they have had a great experience here.
Hospital administrative team very intuned with patient care needs in the community.
Certified Nurse Assistance (Former Employee) – Jackson, MS – November 12, 2015
Hard work!!! If your are not equip to work 12 hours non stop, this is not the job for you. If your are not able to handle not getting a raise, this is not the job for you. If your are not used to constant changes of the rules, this is not the job for you. If you are not used to being looked over for a position in reference to advancement, this is not the job for you. If you are not used to being belittled, this is not the job for you. If you are used to constant changes, being belittled because of your position, overlooked for a promotion, not receiving your pay raises because of any reason and if you are used to working hard, non stop, this is the perfect job for you.
Professional atmosphere with focus on chronically ill patient care
RN (Current Employee) – Pensacola, FL – December 30, 2015
Select Specialty Hospital is a place that allows a professional nurse to use her/his assessment skills. The patients are chronically critical ill with numerous comorbidities that challenge me on daily bases. Education is important and the classes offered her are remedial as well as advanced. My co-workers are helpful and trustful. The management are supportive and rely on informed nurses. The hardest part of my day is charting for computer and hand written charting is required. All in all, this hospital is great place to work.
Management (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – December 22, 2015
Was so disappointed in the management. As an upper level manager, I thought it would be acceptable to give ideas to improve the employee work atmosphere. Was I ever wrong, I was terminated that day for doing nothing wrong but bringing employee concerns to light. There has been nearly 100% turnover in 2 years there. That should speak to something. The corporate HR team over St Louis area leaves a lot to be desired now. Unfortunately, the new RHRD and Corporate HR are not very good in their jobs, hence the high turnover and low census.
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Mt.Clemens, Mi – September 18, 2015
This company has a point system system which is designed to get rid of employees quickly. Their pay system isn't fair. They work you too hard for the little benefits that they give you. There is no room for advancement here because they only have one department. And they are racist.
Good experience to gain employment with other hospitals
They treat Nursing Assistant's like second class citizens with no respect.
Health Information Tech (Former Employee) – Colorado – October 26, 2015
I worked on a daily basis with a wide range of different professionals. I filed, scanned completed request and completed any other task that were given to me. I learned time management and how to be very proficient. I learned many different positions during the 13 years on staff. Medial records was the last department I was in for 6 yrs. I worked well with all management. I found favor and confidence with most co- workers. The hardest of the job would be when there was a high patient count this made the work load very heavy. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to make a schedule that was beneficial for the company and myself. Plus there was a group of people that made the job enjoyable.
The Leadership team is always willng to help as much as they can.
Health Information Management Manager (Current Employee) – Garland, TX – May 7, 2016
A typical day at work is being able to make sure all the admissions and discharges have been scanned. You have to be flexible for the staff and physicians to make the system work. I have been challenged to step back that being on EHR and having to go back to paper it was the hardest part of the job. And trying to keep up with all of the discharges and admissions I love the staff and physicians because that we have and they work and help each other out no matter what is going on with patients or other Team members.
Hospitalist group help out in completing all the medcal records on time.
This place is DANGEROUS! Don't work here if you value your Nursing License. I would get written up for leaving a blood requisition on my cart, but a nurse actually kept her job after, unbelievably cutting off an NG at the nares when ordered to D/c NG!!! Management cares only about profit at the expense of patient safety and basic care.

Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 11, 2015
I love the people I work with. Lots of favoritism, cronyism, present. I had hoped new CEO and CNO would make a difference but it is still the same. If the core doesn't like you then you do not get promotions. I have seen it happen on many occasions.
Clinical Pharmacist (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – January 12, 2016
Enjoy the multi-disciplinary approach to healthcare. Management is always interested in helpful suggestions to improve patient care and the workplace. I enjoy all my co-workers. A relaxed atmosphere and yet very productive. The hardest part of the job is being on-call.
RESPIRATORY (Former Employee) – GAINSVILLE,FLA – July 26, 2015
This place is run by very unorganized nursing management, HR MANAGEMENT, unstable and uncaring CNO'S, THERE IS NO MANAGEMENT IN THE RESPIRATORY DEPARTMENT, its ran by a very conniving, back stabbing lead therapist who does not care about anybody but herself, she should be fired herself. This place states about how its a great place to work-NOTHING BUT -"B____T", THEY "LIE,LIE!!!! KEEP AWAY YOU WILL BE FIRED AND THEY WILL MAKE STUFF UP ABOUT YOUR PERFORMANCE. Its a real shame that a place that looks good from the outside, can unleash the most rudest people, I have worked in many hospitals in my career, and never experience the unprofessional characters of Doctors, who only last there maybe 3,6 month, or a year the most, very bad patient care due to low staffing, even at the corporate level, they bring them to hospital and they dont care, this company should be shut down for poor care to the patients and the UNCARING TO THE EMPLOYEES. "CLINICAL STAFF IS THE BACKBONE OF HOSPITALS, BUT MANAGEMENT THERE IS BLIND AS "BAT"
PLEASE-PLEASE DONT WORK THERE, ESPECIALLY IN THE RESPIRATORY DEPARTMENT BECAUSE THE LEAD THERAPIST IS UNCARING AND WILL FIRE YOU BEFORE YOU KNOW IT.
PTA (Current Employee) – Flint, MI – February 4, 2016
A typical day working in acute care is getting the pt up and walking, getting them stronger so they can hopefully return home. I have learned that you have to have a tough exterior working in acute care with a strong stomach. Co - workers are amazing, anything you need they will help any way they can The hardest part of the job would have to be seeing some of the wounds on some of the patients. Its heart breaking The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a pt walk out and get discharged from therapy
