A good physical therapist is one who can develop an achievable plan of care and help a patient through that plan. A great physical therapist is one who develops a realistic plan with measurable goals tailored to each patient’s situation. A great physical therapist works with more than just the patient, involving the physician, family and other healthcare providers as needed. A great physical therapist doesn’t just go through the motions, instead listening carefully to a patient’s concerns, monitoring progress, and adjusting plans as needed. We are looking for a great physical therapist.

  • Demonstrate understanding of correlation between OASIS assessments and outcomes reporting.
  • Communicate regularly with all disciplines involved in the care of the patient.
  • Complete and initial and ongoing assessment (OASIS if appropriate) to determine level of functioning.
