Hospital is closed now. It was unsafe for the patients and the staff. Closed by the state. The pay was decent and due to short staffing the overtime was available if you wanted to work it but there are two sharp ends to that sword, due to short staffing you were mandated to work often.
Wonderful staff and patients
I loved caring for children and adolescents in an acute psychiatric setting. My fellow staff was wonderful and it was very rewarding to care and support these children in a positive safe environment. I often wonder how my kids are doing now.

Good job and fun environment to work in.
This was a big facility, so there was always something going on...No 2 days were alike, so when I got to work I never knew what to expect, which I like..need diversity.Worked with a great group of people..we worked very well together.
fun work place. management needed compassion for their workers
Overall this hospital could have been a great place to work if they had just changed the management team.
Fast paced environment, different everyday
The day consisted of waking patients, taking them to school and therapeutic activities, keeping a safe environment for all. I learned many ways to handle crisis situations, continued learning everyday. The hardest part of my job was having to do take downs and seclusions on patients. I enjoyed every part of my job.
you were mandated everyday, so basically u are giving up your life. even if u are sick u come in. the turnover rate is horrible.
co-workers were great.hospital closed without adequate notice.
