Long Term Adult Care with great staff and great patient care
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee), Topeka, KSMay 13, 2015
Pros: flexible scheduling
Cons: poor mangement, short or no breaks due to short staff, low census at times and getting hours cut.
The time I worked for Select I came to know some wonderful people. Not only staff members but patients and their families. I typically worked night shifts but did work one day shift per week. A typical work day included not only taking on my role as a respiratory therapist but to help the aides and nursing staff with general patient cares. We all worked very well together as a team, especially in critical times. Unfortunately, I felt like the management was insufficient as there was a lot of turn over and No CEO for more than half the time I was employed there. There were many loose ends and many staff members were not treated fairly. Complaint/concerns were very seldom followed up on, be it equipment, staff or patient issues. The hardest part of the job was, for example having to terminally wean a patient we have taken care of for several weeks but little to no progress was made. In long term care you tend to become attached and get to know your patients on a personal level. My favorite part of the job was getting to know the patients and their families and watching miracles happen for some.

Rewarding
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Wichita, KSMay 9, 2015
Working for this company was both rewarding and frustrating. Being able to see the progress that we have on our patients, as well as having them walk back in to visit is very rewarding. Most of the staff is of the same mindset that patients deserve the same care as if they were caring for their own family member

Complete Nightmare
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Panama City, FLMay 4, 2015
Favoritism is the only way to succeed there. Turn over rate is so high it can't be researched and charted through the corporate office, the management all truly uses two faces at all times, they are NO where close to a team work environment that they portray in your interview and orientation, staffing is NEVER up to standards, it was EXHAUSTING, management NEVER came to help when staffing was short, night shift was always slandered

working with good friends
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Davenport, IAApril 9, 2015
Pros: getting to meet some new people
Cons: horrible management and nurses to work with
A typical day working 12 hours is that it's very long and sometimes its hard to always stay busy. I learned that you can be the best aide out there and do everything that they ask you to do but you still fall short. I honestly didn't really like the management or most of the nurses that work there. They are very lazy and they don't help you do anything. I love most of my aide coworkers.i've met alot of nice people. hardest part of my job would be dealing with coworkers or management that don't appreciate anything that you do for them.

Very friendly co-workers
Dietary Aide/ Breakfast Cook (Former Employee), Davenport, IAApril 3, 2015
Pros: Free food, learning to cook new meals
Cons: Unpredictable temperatures in kitchen
Very relaxed work environment. Very respectful and friendly co-workers. Cooking for very many people was very stressful at times but being able to help the patients was worth it. A good day at work all comes down to the people you interact with.

RN (Former Employee), Nashville, TNMarch 22, 2015
The actual job is hard. Taking care of 4 -5 very sick needy, mostly all on vents, patients. It is rewarding though. If it was not for the poor management and extreme micromanagement would be a nice place to work.

Bad outweighs the good
RN (Former Employee), columbus, ohioFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: excellent experience for new grads only!!
Cons: management
Im only speaking on select specialty south(formerly regency hospital) and select specialty east(inside OSU east) both located in COLUMBUS OHIO!
The company Select Medical itself is AWESOME! they encourage education and keep their employees well educated and comoensate their emoloyess well also. Staff is very overworked and most dont stay long. Way to much staff turnover at the east location and way too much "throwing people under the bus" at the south location. Some people are treated and talked to as if they are stupid, which causes resentment and harbored frustration. Patients and families run the show. Basically, LTACH or long term acute care hospitals ARE NOT REAL HOSPITALS!! These places are upgraded nursing homes. Nursing homes that uses REAL HOSPITAL skills to take care of their patients. If you live in central ohio, DO NOT WORK HERE IF YOU ARE USED TO WORKING AT A REAL HOSPITAL!! And by REAL HOSPITAL i am referring to a hospital with an EMERGENCY ROOM connected to the building, Xray and imaging department, critical care, step down floor, maternity floor, ortho, neuro, trauma, O.R., renal/cardiac floors, endoscopy cath lab ALL WITHIN THE BUILDING!!!!! LTACH dont have that. They are essentially NURSING HOMES!! But a new grad can gain good experience at select. Just dont stay long.

Poor company culture, leadership, and care!
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Omaha, NEFebruary 14, 2015
Pros: only the pay
Cons: leadership is poor; facility is understaffed.
This is a poorly run facility. The CEO is blind most of the important issues like quality, excellent patient care, and staffing to meet demands. There is too much focus on filling the beds and minimal work is done on recruiting. The CEO wants to be everyone's "friend" mainly because he is an incredibly inept leader. Most of the leadership team makes fun of his bumbling style and his blindness to what is happening in his facility.
The nursing staff is made up of just associates degree RN's with minimal staff having their BSN. The CNO doesn't even have a BSN! Where does this ever happen? It should make anyone question the quality of care delivered. They bend their own rules and allow an LPN to function as a clinical liaison when most facilities have BSN's. They even hired a CEO in another location with only a Bachelors and the job descriptions says "Masters required"! Again, you have to question the companies direction and the quality of the staff when rules are bent like this. Turnover of CNA's is at least 50% and nursing is understaffed. The facility cant hire quality staff because of the poor reputation in Omaha, even when they offered a sign on bonus no one applied! HR is most of the problem due to lack of experience and an inability to focus and get anything done.
Incompetent people do well at this facility. They are given superior ratings and allowed to attempt doing there jobs without question. The CEO surrounds himself that are incompetent employees that have been his friends for years. Anyone with any sign of being good at what they do or who tries to fix this broken facility either leaves or is asked to leave. They are happy functioning at a level of dysfunction that most people would see as abnormal.
There are too many facilities that are run in an excellent manner to make a mistake working at Select. Its been this way for years; its not changing. Put your shoes on and run!

worst facility ive ever worked at
CNA (Former Employee), Camp Hill, PAFebruary 14, 2015
Pros: make your own schedule, 12 hour days
Cons: coworkers are not friendly, cleaniness of the place is horrible
the morale is low, the managers and people high up of course, have nothing good to say about the job, they are friendly, caring, and will tell you about how great the company is, how much this place strives on team work and how great it is during orientation. HOWEVER, my first day on the floor, I was told nothing but how horrible every employee is, I learned more about the other employees than I did about the job, they talked bad about the other new people that started when I did. The place is dirty, the CNAS are the ones responsible for cleaning the rooms after a patient is discharged, with bleach wipes....heaven forbid there is a lazy CNA on that day... the rules and way of doing things are not regulated, one CNA told me to clean patients with wipes, the other uses soap and water. The RNS are rude, and mean to the CNAS (of course this is not uncommon but they don't even answer your questions about patients) it is very uninviting, uncomfortable place to be, everyone is negative, they worked short staffed both days I was on the floor. RNS do not lift a finger to help the cnas with the patients and they give excuses as to why they cant. Most workers here are lazy, patients are not repositioned, as they should be, they are mostly bed rest patients. I only worked here a week.

RN (Current Employee), Gulfport, MSFebruary 9, 2015
Pros: rate of pay is a bit higher secondary to patient acuity and the hospital's need to keep staff
Cons: challenging patient caseload
wonderful coworkers, mediocre management, wonderful education system, easy to gain new medical knowledge/skills if you have extra time to take tons of computer classes the company makes available online. very, very busy days. heavy caseload for nurses considering acuity of patient. typically 5 patients per nurse.
