I enjoyed the other Liaisons I worked with and the CM's in the area hospitals that I worked along side of , management was ridiculous...
I learned a lot, being in the ICU w/ RN's and MD's, The work place culture with the new Lead and DBD was one of dictatorship recently. The hardest part of my job was not believing in the product I was selling and in return pts and families suffered. The most enjoyable part of my job was being in the hospital and helping families through an extremely tough time.....
Poor Work Environment enforced by Poor Management.
Cook (Former Employee) – Springfield, MO – June 30, 2018
Worked there for about 3 months in the dietary department, from the head down to aides there was nothing but dysfunction and discord. I wouldn't recommend this job to anyone unless of course you want to deal with messy individuals that are allowed to act any way they choose because the manager does nothing about it. Trust me, you could flip burgers at Wendy's and deal with less drama. Save yourself a headache.
Cooking is my first love and my coworkers seemed to really appreciate my gift.
Poor management, work culture a mess, poor work environment
Surgical Tech II (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 24, 2018
I loved working for Select but were always short staffed. My management skills improved. The hardest part of the workplace was the turnover rate was extremely high. Loved the fact it was a small rehab hospital, it made the personal aspect with patients very inviting.
CNA / UC / Tele Tech / AC (Current Employee) – Flint, MI – June 23, 2018
If you show dedication loyalty and have a good work ethic while working good with others and can handle stress you may succeed here. It truly does take a special person to work here though if you want to take care good care of your patients. Management has changed often.. I've seen every role of management be replaced in the few years I've been here. Right now I do have a sense of longevity with our current management, so that is good. It is a demanding place to work but those who take pride in what they do for a living here excel. Very complex patients with high expectations from families. In my opinion, there are times that patient loads are a little much but with some staff it's very manageable. They offer tuition reimbursements for students and work around your home schedules. I've learned a lot through select and plan to keep my employment here for a while longer.
Close relationships and supportive co-workers, Self scheduling, Advancement opportunities for those that put forth valid efforts, Learning opportunities up the wazoo.
A lot of call ins, Short staffed often, Some staff is not held accountable.
friendly nursing staff, nice but unfair management, overall' room for improvement
floor tech (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – June 23, 2018
a typical day for me starts with trash removal, collecting bio, replenish can liners where needed, dust mop all floors, auto scrub all floors, sweep & mop stairwells, clean & shine elevators, other duties as needed. cannot say that i've learn anything new. management is ok but unfair with equal opportunity for advancements. there is an diverse culture here that blends nicely. the hardest part of my job stripping wax off of floors and the most enjoyable part is getting complements from different ones on how well the floors look when i'm finish.
Rather not say for fear of retribution. (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – June 14, 2018
Management is ineffective and cliquish. Morale has steadily gone downhill during my tenure. Employees are frequently threatened with/ receive demerit points for illness (even with a doctor's note), family emergencies, etc. Employee and management turnover rate is enormous.
Some very kind and caring people work there.
Lazy workers far outnumber the active. Very, very understaffed.
Working longe term with ICU ppatient with multiple complex conditions
staff nurse (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – June 14, 2018
Great place to work if you want to provide quality care in a high tech setting with ICU beds . Charge nurse for 52 LTACH patients. Arranged team assignments managed work load, patient care when not enough staff. Monitored telemetry, administered cardiac drips. moderate sedation vent care
Staff Nurse, RN (Current Employee) – Town and Country, MO – June 11, 2018
Select Specialty at Town and Country is a new facility that is going to achieve great things! I am so glad to be a part of a new hospital that really cares about their patients and their employees. There have been a few hiccups along the way that come with opening a new facility, but nothing that hasn't been addressed and one wouldn't expect with a new place. Management takes patient satisfaction and safety to a whole other level. Nurse to patient ratio is low and charge nurses don't take a patient assignment. There is always lots of support and the CNO is very involved with what is going on, on the floor. CNAs are well respected. Only thing I will say is call ins, tardiness, and disrespectful natures are not tolerated. This place is definitely classy!
low nurse to patient ratio, involved management, lots of support and resources
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – North Carolina – June 8, 2018
I believe in LTACH support for those families who need that extra time for healing and extra physician support. Corporate really needs to weed out the clicks and get with the business being a hospital and stand by there team.
opportunity for advancement
Stop taking advantage of the ones who really care in their job place.
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Town and Country, MO – June 6, 2018
Nurses are terminated because the management are more concerned about their ego rather than the quality of nursing care. The supervisors are knowledgeable and fair but the management makes their job difficult. Excellent nurses are being terminated for no plausible reason including agency nurses. Zero job security. The charting system is archaic because they still use paper charting formats. The blind is leading the blind. RN's are treated as expendable.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Davenport, IA – May 25, 2018
Had a good experience, modified self schedule was like I got to choose every day to work or be off, great especially because I worked nights. Until they bought another hospital 3 hours away and started staffing 2 facilities with one staff, then things got annoying, no one know what was going on with management, breakdown in communication and more stress among staff. Though, I'm sure, after a while now it's improved.
Sometimes chose own schedule
typical health care, too many with too few to staff
