Measuring Therapy Productivity in Acute Care

Judy Posts:

DEAR ERI COMMUNITY: Has anyone found a good way to measure productivity in acute care? It can vary so much from day to day for the evaluating therapists depending on what types of patients were admitted and how many times that you have to go back to a patient before you can see them due to tests, etc. Also, I feel like sometimes the PT is consulted only so that the physician can decide where the best place is to send the patient the next day such as SNF, acute rehab, or home. My background is acute rehab and I am having trouble feeling like I am doing my best in acute care. I work in different facilities now as a floater.Thanks
