Physical Therapy Assistant Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Physical Therapy Assistant?

Physical Therapy Assistant:
My experience has been a positive one. Nursing staff and rehab work close together making sure residents are safe. Health benefits aren't good. Cleanest facility I've worked in. Not many facilities will have the social worker toileting residents if needed be. Pros and cons to any job. Not a high turn around for employees. Most employees have been with facility since the beginning. Friendly staff. Pay is average.
