Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ (downtown/main) – January 20, 2017
If you are burnt out and don't want to actually help pts, then this is the place for you. The CNAs are no where to be found, unless it's the break room or on the the phone. The respiratory staff is poorly managed, and the upper management is ran by the board members from the east coast who have control of the shares in the stock market. they keep patients in this facility as long as insurance continues to pay out. And when the cash flow is over, they ship them to a lower acute facility. multiple complaints have been heard across the board. From family members to staffing issues... but it falls on deaf ears time and time again. it's amazing these two facilities in AZ have not been shut down. RNs CNAs and RTs beware. When you sign up here, you will be taken advantage of.
compensation, if you have half a brain, you are one of the smart ones.
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – January 18, 2017
Select Specialty Hospital is a great place to work. The staff are great and the kitchen is also great. They all work hard an are great team players. They are great with helping there guest an patients back on there feet.
Respiratory Therapist are not respected here. Nursing runs the show. Outdated paper charting system, rude CNO who micro manages. No respiratory protocols. Facility looks old and run down. RT'S treated like nurse aids.
Excellent place to learn as a new critical nurse. Staff nurses work well together and will help each other with everything they may need help with. Self scheduling helps with events in ones personal lives.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – December 27, 2016
Wish I had read this prior to accepting a position in KCK. Self scheduling was only good for a two month period, nurse patient ratio is dangerous with high acuity ill patients, charting is on paper. The leadership is weak and you can't communicate with the CNO, HR has no voice other than to interpret for the CNO who stated she couldn't read my lips or needed messages via text. This was my second experience in different roles in different states with a 12 year break. Do yourself a favor, don't apply to this facility.
Co-workers are great
Can't communicate with leadership and misleading. Nurse/patient ratio high, staffing issues.
N/A (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – December 25, 2016
The nurse manager at Select -Fairhill is very fake , fosters back stabbing and unbelievable gossip among fellow staff members. There's no leadership and confidential conversation with them! It's laughable! Every one will know your business by the end of the shift! Hopefully in time, the management team will become stronger. The pay and benefits are of satisfactory standards and other departments are helpful with creating a good work environment overall.
I have been working at Select Specialty Nashville for a few years now. I have learned alot in my time here, The experience in caring for extremely critical care patients has become an invaluable tool. Our floor staff are great people to work with and everyone is more than happy to lend a helping hand. Management, however, leaves alot to be desired. Their tactics and actions create alot of problems with low morale being at the top of the list. The work load is less than desireable when one considers the acuity level of the patient population. The acuity level is adjusted to meet the staffing when this practice should be the other way around. It would be great if our leader, and I am referring to the CEO of Nashville, had any experience as a nurse. If she did, she might be more receptive to nursing needs instead of being more concerned about the bottom line. She has not a clue!! Her skills, involving relating to employees, lies at the bottom of the barrel. Your method of handling problem areas in staff meetings, ie cameras, is very unprofessional. Take a good look at your skills! They need a little honing.
The floor staff; nurses, rt, cnas are a great pleasure to work with. We know how to work as a team.
This hospital has a revolving door, The staff turnover is astronomical, management is totally oblivious to the needs of staff, too much micro management.
RN (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – December 17, 2016
If you work here you will lose your lisc. Over worked under paid new CNO has no clue what she's doing, hr person has no clue what she's doing suppose to be support for staff that's not true. They love to flex stock patients and understaff to make profit and jeopardize lives.
