- 0Oct 14, '05 by Debbie_lpn_laI work for HealthSouth for 4 yrs. as an LPN full time and now am just prn. Not sure what you are wanting to know. I don't have any specific complaints. You are welcome to write me back and ask anything you want. We are a small satellite hospital with our main hospital about 40 miles away. I hope I can help with any questions you may have.
- 0Sep 10, '06 by mel1977I have worked for 3 The longest being in MO-we are a 60 bed sub acute specializing in TBI, SCI, Multit, CVA etc...We are ranked nearly #1 of all HS inpatient facilities, so they say. I am proud to work for HS-all facilities differ and they have seperate focus'. For example, one I worked for in NV worked more with COPD, general Debil and CABG. They were pretty short term, where in my current one we are longer term with very high acuity.
I started at this one in 1998, left in 02 to move with hubby, worked for two more in 03-05 then moved home again and am back at the same place. I like them bc they are small but large. There is one in pretty much every major city-except San Diego, go figure. We are like a big family and I don't see much in the way of high turnover either. I'd stay here forever but don't plan on staying in MO.

I am a Healthsouth RN. It is a good place to work. The have good benefits, a nice clinical ladder program, good resourse people. With that said I need to tell you what I feel is a draw back. Often there is a lack of cohesiveness between the disciplines. More often than not at our facility, nursing is at the bottom of the food chain.
- 0Jan 11, '07 by spejsaI interviewed today at Healthsouth in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It sounds like a good opportunity and a great way for me to get out of cardiac. I am so sick of where I am!!! I have 6 patietns now and they said I will have 8 at HS. Is that bad or good? I don't do rehab, so I don't know. They say they will pay my student loans and will give a sign on. And, the salary is a little bit less but not much. Any ideas?
- 1Jan 11, '07 by mcmrnbsnHi-having a patient load of 6-8 is our normal with it ususally being 6-7. We have nurse techs who are responsible for the patient care tasks: bathing, dressing, etc. if that is not being assisted with by O.T. I work on a unit that has a lot of ortho-hips, knees, also MVAs with fractures, some head trauma and some general debil patients. We have a great supply of good physical therapists, O.T.s , speech and R.T.s too-so our support is really good. Hope you like it-let us know. MM
- 0Jan 20, '07 by tnurse63I am also thinking of applying for an rn position at healthsouth. I have been working for home health for the past 6 1/2 years . I am also wondering what to expect at a rehab hosp like healthsouth. What are some of the nursing duties as compared to an acute care hosp nurse?
