I wanted to vomit. I had anxiety attacks every day I drove to work. I was beat down and experienced compassion fatigue and finally quit. I went to a job that wasn’t in the nursing profession.
What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Post Acute Medical?
Not worth the money, there is a reason they often hire staff at a higher rate of pay, you will be expected to work short staffed often and not be able to provide adequate care and they dont care, they will still keep admitting patients regardless of staffing issues, and you wont be able to get to all the patients when needed so the healthier ones often get ignored because you dont have time to care for everyone and will leave feeling awful most days.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Post Acute Medical a better place to work?
Listen to staff concerns, adequate staffing based on census, add more CNAs depending on census, improve communication and ensure all staff are informed of changes or new policies, hire security to protect patients and staff. Ensure patients are admitted to the proper level of care, ensure pharmacy has the meds available to staff to properly take care of patients before the patient is admitted to the floor, ensure they have the equipment or supplies needed to take care of the patients.

It will close down within 2 years with the current CEO and management due to lack of concern of admitting patients to the wrong level of care and keeping them there which causes harm to them and puts staff at risk of losing their license.
What advice would you give the CEO of Post Acute Medical about how to improve it?
Sell the company to someone who’s not going to run it into the ground with horrible ethics and terrible judgement. Find Jesus before it’s too late.
