Hi, I'm an COTA in Southwest florida. I graduated back in 08 and have worked in specialized hand clinic for five years and loved it! but due to recent changes in reembursement my employer had to left myself and one other COTA go. I started a job in a SNF and only lasted 2 days, it was too much of a shock coming from a hand clinic, plus no one had any intentions of training me. There is only one hand clinic in my area so finding another job at that type of facility is out. I am looking at home health or outpatient (which are limited in my area), but I am so shaken from my experience at the SNF, that I'm wondering if I pigeon holed myself working in such a specialized field right out of school like I did??....
