i work for them now and i do not recommend anyone work for them. there are many things about Select that i do not like. They are a for profit company, which is fine, however, they do not put patient care, safety or quality first. In addition, they do not value their employees, especially nurses. Select has a very high nurse turnover, especially the Chief Nursing Officer role. They recently mandated that nurse aides are not allowed to take blood sugars and that the nurse must take the first set of vital signs. This is all well and good, however, when you consider that you will normally have 5 very sick patients to care for, and that most Selects have paper charting and use the cheap medication dispense systems, it is impossible for a nurse to safely do their initial assessment at the start of the shift, pass meds, take vital signs, and take off orders, plan for the day, and all the other things that a nurse is responsible for, especially during that crucial first few hours of the day. The nursing leadership of Select is very far removed from actual practice. Most of them have not practiced as a nurse in some time, and many have never worked in a Select hospital. The corporate leadership is extremely profit driven. I have been on many corporate calls, with the very top executives in the company, and they spend a few minutes at most talking about safety and quality, yet they will spend hours and hours talking about marketing, expense control, and improving their profit. Also, when you work for Select, you will work for a company that actually denies care to patients if they do not think they can make a nice profit off of them. The CEO's of the hospital are actually trained and encouraged to cost out patients and if they can not make a benchmark of $7000 or so on a patient, then they will deny the patient admission into the hospital. This is called cherry picking of patients and Select actually does this. I work for them and i know. Worst part about Select is that they make a ton of money and they horde it at the top. They tell their employees that they expect the best from them each and every day yet their salaries are based on the midpoint in the area. In other words they intentionally limit what they pay their employees to the average of the market they are in but they demand their employees work at 100% each and every day. This is actual wording I have heard from the leadership of this corporation. I am not making this up. I am telling you what i have actually experienced from this company. This is all factual. I do not recommend anyone work for this company. Select needs a change in its top leadership or at least a change in its focus. Select is not driven by quality and patient care. The New York Times article that was critical of the company a year or so ago was very true for the most part. Select is a great company when it comes to making a profit, but lacks when it comes to patient care and employee satisfaction. Before you work for a Select, please find a few people that actually work for the company and ask them about the things that I have said. I am certain they will validate what i have said. Good luck.
