Rehabilitation

Some great nurses work here!

PROS:

The coworkers and scheduling are great in the rehab department. Everyone works as a team and pulls together for great care of our patients.

CONS:

Pay, ratio, acuity levels are cons lately. This is a hospital wide problem, not just in the rehab department. The least attractive department is icu step down. Well known for their rapid nurse turn over rates.

PROS:

Pay and scheduling were ok, not great. Staff wasn't helpful or friendly. Assigned rooms and work were not explained well. No help or "way they do things" were given.
