During a home health assignment, a new grad PT will be treating patients in their places of residence. This may seem daunting to a new grad at first since treatments will happen one-on-one and not within a larger team, but this can also be very rewarding. This setting teaches physical therapists about independence, confidence, organization, and patient care. There is plenty of variety to learn from on a home health assignment as well, as patient populations, diagnoses, and locations change with each appointment.
Skilled Nursing Facilities
At a SNF, a new grad PT will work with an interdisciplinary team to help restore and maintain the physical function of patients. Patients in these facilities, who are usually from the geriatric population (though there are exceptions), will have varying diagnoses that may range from the neurological to the cardiovascular. While on a SNF assignment, a new grad physical therapist can expect to complete evaluations, as well as create and execute PT care plans for patients.
An acute setting, usually found in a hospital or trauma center, will give the new grad PT an opportunity to learn how to care for patients who are in critical condition. For the most part, a PT will be part of the medical team that ensures a patient is discharged safely. There may also be opportunities to provide recommendations for rehabilitation after discharge.
