The Murrells Inlet location is struggling with census and operations. This location opened in 2013 and has not progressed. The DON will have you believe the office is growing and that is far from the truth. Since it’s conception the office staff turnover is really high, 2 directors, 3 physical therapists, 3 physical therapist assistants, 1 occupational therapist, 1 certified occupational therapist assistant, 3 speech therapists, 2 home health aids, a minimum of 5-8 nurses, and a host of contracting agencies. The management excepts you to be available for visits but you are not paid on availability. This job will cause extreme financial hardship.
Operationally, management is not familiar with CMS and Home Health operations. They are constantly learning and that lack of knowledge is discouraging. Initially their lack of knowledge didn’t impact the clinicians but after years it is apparent that they are continuing to struggle with billing and administration. With that being said building a thriving marketing campaign is beyond their skill set. If this tells you anything they are still using paper documentation. The only referral sources will continue to be NHC Murrells Inlet (the facility) and the Veterans Administration.
This post is with as much grace as possible because the staff is out of their league. Being behind the learning curve isn’t a viable option in this dynamic healthcare market. Don’t waste your time or personal savings on a hope and a dream.
A lot of time off and autonomy with treatment plans.
No financial stability, You pay yourself to work after gasoline cost and vehicle maintenance, CMS rules aren’t fully understood by management.
