  6. "Disheartening"

    Pros

    Solid therapists, huge amount of talent and compassion. Decent PTO if you don't have to use it for flexing time off due to budget

    Cons

    Budget dictates everything. Patients aren't provided individual attention or treatment based on need. Constant micromanaging treatment times. Administration dictates how long treatment sessions will be

    Advice to Management

    Educate managers and supervisors on appropriate communication. "Scare tactics" and blatant intimidation do not work with educated professionals

    I worked at LifeCare Hospitals full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great rehab team, work well together and like-minded to bring the best customer care and treat patients like people not just a number

    Cons

    Company cares more about $$ than caring for people, scapegoating, gossip, poor politics. Hard work with little to no gratitude from management. Most staff under qualified to treat properly at this level of care. Poor support from nursing staff(supervisors) to assist rehab outcomes and truly help people return to prior level of care

    Advice to Management

    Should have quality education and procedures for daily care especially with nurse aides. Hold employees to a higher standard of care and help staff feel pride and appreciated-to in turn provide better care with empathy and sacrifice. Hold monthly all staff meetings to create a stronger team and review real issues. Supervisors mostly seem to brush complaints under the rug.

    I have been working at LifeCare Hospitals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a friendly environment

    Cons

    Dictatorial regime.
    No job security with very little staff appreciation except the occasional scraps under the table.
    The CEO is trying to build his own empire.

    Advice to Management

    Our CEO came form another facility that is closing, since then he has been replacing the current staff with his old staff at the facility. It is no secret. Job security doesn't exist.

    Pros

    No pros. Never send any of your love ones here. You will regret it. Trust me. They don't care about your love ones just your money.

    Cons

    A disgrace. No teamwork. None of the nurses care about their patients. They are disgusting. Uncaring humans taking care of your loved ones. This chain of hospitals really need to be shut down.

    Advice to Management

    Need to just shut all of the Shreveport Campuses down

    Pros

    Great flexibility in work type, management easy to work under, positive environment. The level of care our clinical team provides is unmatched.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any major cons. LifeCare has been an amazing place to work for. I would recommend this place to any prospective employee.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. The current leadership team has many innovative solutions, and is highly motivated.
