Measuring Productivity in Rehabilitation, Part II Rethinking Productivity


[QUOTE who="Helen PTA in Baltimore, Maryland"]I am a new PTA graduate and I was wondering what some of the productivity rates are for PTAs working in SNFs.
So far, I have had 3 job interviews and 3 different productivity rates: 88%, 90%, and 95%.
I know 95% is crazy but 88% also sounds like it is hard to achieve in a SNF. Are those rates normal or are there companies out there that have lower rates?
Thanks for your help![/QUOTE]

I too just graduated as a PTA and passed boards and now have a job in IL. The LTC facility contracts out to my co I work forand they have 100% productivity!! No one has come out and explained how this is possible when you have 2-3 progress notes due each day too. I am staying 2-3 hours later each night to stay on top of my documentation. They say you should do point of care where you doc while tx but the reality of doing that in a SNF LTC facility is not realistic as most pt's require CGA or max-A for some tasks and holding onto them while typing is not possible. Or you could totally ignore pt and go type notes while they sit but to me that seems rude and it makes the pts unhappy as anyone would be wasting time sitting....
frustrated PTA... Let me know if you get other answers from more experienced PTAs :(

Has there been a survey to determine the average productivity (%) of a PT in a SNF for true or true + supplemental time (as you define above. If not, what would you estimate that % to be?
