Productive and educational place to work
My day begins at 1845. Work 12 hour shifts. Sometimes get as many as 5-6 admissions. Since I have worked in mental health and substance abuse, I've learned that everyone has problems, that people just deal with their issues in different ways. The hardest part of my job is seeing people I know personally come into the center.
A caring devoted place to work with a great bunch of staff
I get started at work with report and med count...continue on with blood sugars meeting the patients...pull meds and distribute...mingle with the patients...1 to 1 counseling and charting...Do my 24 hour assessments and any work that needs to be complete...Stock my med room...verify meds on new pts...make appointments and complete discharges if needed...Help with new admits and complete MAR's...Great management team, very easy to assist and talk to...I love my co-workers...we are team players...the hardest part of my job is lots of admits at one time...the enjoyable part is seeing and working with these great people everyday....
Great behavioral health hospital. Great treatment staff and believe on full treatment and not a bandaid fix.
Educational place to work.
Work with patients from different walks of life with various mental conditions. The hardest thing to deal with is trying to help the adolescents realize that they are loved and there is help for them to get them out of abusive and/or neglectful situations. It is also hard trying to convince parents that when they have done their best and the children are still disrespectful, abusive, and/or disobedient to just know that they have done their best and it is time to allow the authorities to get involved and keep them, the parents, safe.
Work with a variety of people from different walks of life. Work with people who have a variety of clinical needs.
