Anyone work as a Rehab liaison/intake coordinator in the hospital?

Posted

I’m looking at applying for a position as a rehab liaison/intake coordinator in the hospital. Basically, I would follow possible candidates in the hospitals, talk to patient/family to see if they would be interested in our inpatient rehab program, work with insurance to get approval, etc. I’m curious if anyone here does that type of job and do you like it? What are the pros/cons?

Here I am! I do. I just started 4 months ago coming from dialysis.

pros-flexible schedule, great pay, community involvement and events, meeting new people, advocating for patients 

cons(personal ones for me)- waiting for referrals can get boring..if you are in a new market or there is already a IRF connected to that healthcare System then it can be challenging to get referrals, getting rejected, the long pre screens
