It was a great experience to work for SHC.
Pros: many positive things
Cons: lack of effective communciation between coprporate and the branches
Review POC's, review OASIS Assessments, review schedules, supervise clinicians, participate in the ADR/RAC process, responsible for PI/QA and educating to improve Outcomes and Process Measures. As Director of Operations oversaw and managed an annual budget of over 2 million dollars, with end of episode HHRG score average of $3200+.The learning occurred was priceless- Corporate sponsored OASIS and Coding Conferences with on-going training, opportunity for growth with 2 promotions that included the responsibility of managing 30+ plus clinicians with over a 2 million dollar annual budget, learning to look at all facts, situations, and the "bigger picture" before making a decision. With HCS-D certification, it allowed me the opportunity to have a hands on influence over revenue, and one of my passions is the ability to share the knowledge I have of the Medi-Care regs, OASIS guidelines, and coding tips. The hardest/most uncomfortable part of any job is terminating an employee. I enjoyed the majority of my co-workers and making an office run by focusing on the contributions we each made. The majority of Corporate management just want to educate/share the knowledge they possess to help provide the best quality care to our patients and their significant people. I worked under one director, who at the closing of every morning meeting wanted each staff member to share anything they were grateful for, casual Friday's, and homemade Friday morning breakfasts! Achieving Employee of the Year 2010 was an honor.
