Seeking to fill a Occupational Therapy (OTR) need full-time or part-time at a Therapist Owned Center- VERY flexible schedule offered. We could use an Occupational Therapist (OTR) between 15 to 40 hours per week (Your choice in how many hours within that range) consistently every week. This Occupational Therapist (OTR) need is in a medical adult day care, so it is a unique setting that most therapists don't have the opportunity to work in. The attendees are patients that had a hospital stay and are well enough to go home, but still have some medical and rehab needs, so they go to this adult daycare to get therapy, nursing, and recreation needs filled. Medical adult day care is a mixed population of 70% geriatric (including dementia), 25% developmentally disabled (mentally retarded), and 5% are traumatic brain injuries/other. The facility picks the patients up and brings them home at the end of the day. Each facility has its own rehab room, friendly cooperative environment, and good interdisciplinary communication.
The workday can be set up various ways depending on how many hours per week the therapist is hired for, however for example, in a 40 hour week, the day is broken up into 6 hours treatment time and two hours of paperwork, However, if you finish early you are allowed to leave early. Therapists are asked to treat an average of 9 patients per day for a 40 hour week and proportional if it's less hours per week. Patients can be seen together but we ask that a therapist not see more than 2 patients per hour. Treatments are a minimum of 38 minutes. The owners are both therapists themselves and are NOT interested in running a factory. They aim to be reasonable on productivity and take good care of the patients. They are looking for therapists who can practice independently and handle their own schedule. It is very flexible practice and productivity is calculated on a weekly basis rather than daily- the weekly productivity is 45 treatments a week, which ends up being about 9 per day. So if you have a patient that requires a one-on-one treatment you can make up your productivity during the week and don't have to stress about it. If you get your productivity accomplished in less than 40 hours (without seeing more than 2 patients per hour), then you can work less than 40 hours and still get paid for 40 hours. So for example, if do most of your 45 treatments in first four days, and you want to take half day on last day- that is perfectly allowable. No one dictates your schedule and in fact we are looking for people who can manage themselves. Also, if your productivity is over the productivity for 40 hours- they willingly pay overtime. It is a very flexible model and the owners don’t penny pinch, however they need therapists that are really going to stick to the 45 patient productivity in order to be sustainable. Because there is so much freedom, they also require therapists who will be Independent and responsible.
