What past therapists have to say about working at HOC

10/20/18
Q. How would you describe your work environment and work life at HOC?
A. I start off my day with reviewing my schedule and who I will be treating that day. The
caseload at Hands on Care is extremely diverse including trauma/repetitive-based injuries
involving the entire upper extremity all the way up to shoulder and neck. There is
something new to learn every day.

Q. How has working at HOC changed you as a therapist?
A. I have worked at Hands on Care for almost 4 years. I started with a basic understanding
of treating mostly the hand and minimal splinting skills after my hand therapy fieldwork.
Fast forward 4 years later, I am now a CHT and have learned so much more. I have
become competent in assessing and treating wrist, elbow, and shoulder injuries that I did
not think was at first possible. Unique to Hands on Care, we focus a lot on manual
therapy and making the most out of the one-on-one time that we have with the patients.
Saba really emphasizes on the clinical reasoning aspect of our care. I have learned to
think much more about what I do and how I do it now compared to before.

Q. What are the benefits of working at the HOC environment?
A. Besides learning a whole bunch from such a diverse and challenging caseload, the
greatest benefit is having Saba as a resource. She really enjoys teaching, and she does it
in a way that’s very engaging for the learner. It is certainly not a didactic passing down of
information, rather a quest for the answers. We recognize the importance of learning
together, so we have staff meetings on Fridays where we discuss journal articles, clinical
topics, or difficult cases. She encourages you to push yourself to your maximal potential.
Besides the staff meetings, we also follow the latest research in hand therapy and do a
variety of research projects. Past projects that we have done include assessing the
relationship between shoulder injury and tennis elbow, evaluating the radiographic
evidence for wrist stabilization exercises. We also encourage the staff to participate in
monthly meetings with local hand therapists, where we have hosted and presented
multiple times.

Q. What is it that you need to bring when working here at HOC?
A. An inquisitive mind, a passion for hand therapy, and a determined drive – these are
absolutely necessary to help you succeed at Hands on Care. If you are only interested in
collecting a paycheck at the end of the day and cruise in your job, this is not the
environment for you. If you want to be challenged and lead a successful career in hand
therapy, then this is the place that will get you there.

Q. What did you take from here and anything that you think will help the next new grad?
A. I can confidently say that I take home a strong clinical background in hand therapy after
working at Hands on Care. I have achieved more professionally in the past 4 years at
Hands on Care than I expected of myself. If you are also looking to grow your career,
then start hitting the books, brush up on your upper extremity anatomy, and be prepared
to be challenged. You will be rewarded with so much more.
While at Hands on Care, I started working on my personal project of designing custom
3D-printed thumb stabilization splints. I was able to expand on the clinical knowledge
that I gained at HOC and develop a new design for thumb stabilization splints. I am
hoping to introduce this product to people that use their thumb repetitively in pinching
and gripping tasks, especially those with hypermobility. Hands on Care provided me with
the clinical background and the drive to think outside of the box. www.durathumb.com

Working at HOC has been a positive experience for me – Foram Desai, OTR/L

Here are some of my reasons:
– Working under different levels of therapists, I received an opportunity to grow not only my clinical skills, but also my professional skills.
– I really appreciate that you do not push for productivity as the driving force for the employee. At the end of the day, it is about the quality of work that’s delivered rather than the quantity of the work what matters.
– It feels like there is an open door policy where I am comfortable to ask questions regarding patients

Following things are important to have when working at HOC:
– Good communication skills
– Strong understanding of the Anatomy
– Strong work ethic
– Willing to learn new ideas
– Adaptability
– Multitasking

What did you take from here:
– Various clinical skills including, but not limited to eval/assessments, mobilization techniques, myofascial release techniques, modalities, taping, splinting, and wound care
– Speaking with insurance representatives, learning about different insurance policies and authorizations
– Being a team player

Things that helped me be more effective as an OT at HOC as a recent grad include:
– Cheat sheet, ‘Some Pointers’ email you sent me helped while writing daily notes
– Feedback from all the therapists and patients
– Practicing mobilization/myofascial release techniques with other therapists
– Practicing assessments with other therapists
– Asking questions, even the silly ones
– Shadowing therapists at the start of the job
– Attending hand therapy conference and weekly meetings
