We are looking for a part-time Physical Therapist for a permanent position at a Medical Adult Daycare. We could use a Physical Therapist who wants anywhere between 15-20 hours per week. This Physical Therapist 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. The facility has its own rehab room, friendly cooperative environment, and good interdisciplinary communication. There is only one of each therapist of each discipline, therefore we cannot consider new grads—all Physical Therapy applicants must have at least one year of licensed experience as well as be responsible and feel competent.
For part-time we are flexible on how you do your schedule, as long as the hours are during the 9am to 3pm hours approximately. Treatments are a minimum of 38 minutes. Patients can be seen together but we ask that a therapist not see more than 2 patients per hour. The owners are both PTs 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- for example, the weekly productivity for 20 hours per week is about 22 patient treatments per week. 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.
REQUIREMENTS of the Physical Therapist position: The Physical Therapist must have one year of licensed experience as a Physical Therapist. The Physical Therapist must either have a Bachelor's, Master's, or Doctorate degree in Physical Therapy to qualify for this job as well as a license to practice PT in the state. The Physical Therapist must also either be a US citizen or have your green card- no exceptions. For this medical adult day center job, we will take physical therapists with experience in any of the following: Skilled Nursing Facility, SNF, Visiting Nurse Association, Visiting Nurse Services, outpatient homecare, VNS, VNA, Home Health, Homecare, Outpatient, Medical Adult Day Center, Clinic.
***We will be emailing all candidates follow-up questions so please be watching your email that you used to apply to this position.
