Assisting Program Manager in the administrative management of the Rehabilitation Department. I ensured licenses for all therapists and assistants were current and posted. Assist therapy staff in achieving targeted patient care hours assigned by the Program Manager and/or Area Director. Monitor temperature of hydro-collator units and confirm mechanical checks/calibrations are according to schedule. Order supplies per inventory under the direction of the Program Manager.Confirm therapists are current for all mandatory and/or required in-services.Examine and ensure all rehab staff are current for PPDs.Track annual screens and notify therapists with updates/Reviewing of Physician orders and signatures. Coordinate scheduling of all per diem/casual staff under the direction of the PM, finalizing productivity/efficiency and submit for billing. The hardest part of my job was when patients I grew found of past away. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing I am helping others, that in its self is rewarding.
The people you work with are amazing just not certain management, resulting in you always feeling like you aren’t good enough. Management would say good job and then be passive aggressive about other things

Try not to be a team player, you won't get that.. some of the co workers think of them selves and not the residents and wil make you feel small .no matter what experience you have.. always barking orders and rude.. definitely most of the time the employees think they are better than others..

The employees at Genesis are fantastic. Most have been at the company for 15 or more years. I don't know why we all stay because the pay is low, there are no raises, and no 401k matching. There is currently some flexibility with working remote for some groups but not all. The overall environment is good though, because of the people. The company is simply in a difficult industry and trying to survive. The CEO is a great man. There's just not much he can do.

They are so desperate for aides that they'll take anyone, which isn't always the best idea. They have people there that truly want to provide good care for the residents but there are also people there whose hearts aren't in it (whether it be their hearts aren't in it anymore or they never were?) when you walk in for your shift, you can feel the negativity and judgment! :( Hard to get help from someone if you're not buddy-buddy with them. Not all of it is bad though! There are some wonderful nurses and aides that you see you're on the schedule with and you know you're going to have a good team! The management is also very approachable which makes a nice resource.
Getting to bond with your residents, plenty of hours, and the experience
Pay, poor coworkers, too many call offs, mandated to work late
Most companies normally have good and bad days. At Genesis, the good days are great. But when you have co workers who like to start drama and cause trouble, management will not intervene and put a stop to it. Different offices have different policies and procedures, so each is unique. You could just count pills all day, every day, type in new prescriptions all day, every day or answer phones all day. There is no workflow rotation so every tech doesn't get to do a little of everything every day.
long lunch period, lunch provided some days, weekends and most holidays off.
Poor management - do not like being the "bad guy" and will not put their foot down.
