Over all its a hard place to work at a lot of respectability
A type of day at work is a loud and interested you learn more of communication an redirection of the patients you management to take over the desk paper work chart on the patients behavior so it can be reported to the doctor and the next shift you also work close with your co-workers some time you manage them . The most hard part of the day is getting them up in the morning and getting some of them to take there medication that the hardest part of the job most enjoyable part of the job is when you help one of them and they tell you that if it wasn't for your help in hear i don't no what i would have done you was very nice to me while i was in your care
My first and longest job!
Working for the state definitely has it's perks. Benefits are amazing, there is plenty of room for advancement, they offer educational leave too. The job is tough compared to the other MHT jobs considering the pay for entry-level positions. I would start my career here again considering it helped develop a greater appreciation for MHT work. They really build a great culture with the staff with softball, and they used to have a haunted house during halloween. This is a great place to start a career but the pay is nothing compared to the private hospital sector.
Started school and had to move closer to my college, due to me going to college after work. I loved my job and people that I worked with, and the individuals that we helped. This was a very rewarding job, as any when you can help someone in need. Great co-workers and supervisors.
The state has great benefits and good pay and I love the staff.
The money isn't worth the commute if you don't live in the city. But it is an interesting place to work with great benefits
Not a very good place to work is my personal opinion.
This job was in my opinion a who you are and who you know job. I quickly adapted to the medication scanning system and gave medication and injections, wound care and whatever else might be needed to patients. At times, there would be no one available to answer questions I might have. Always a shortage of nurses and needed information. Training on this job was poorly done by co-workers and you had to pick up what you could as fast as you could. This could have been a very fulfilling job with different management. The most enjoyable part of this job was interacting with patients and helping them with all issues no matter how large or small.
Working at the State hospital was a good experience and taught me a great deal about people, and how everyones needs are different.Most of the people I worked with were awesome people, including the management. It appeared that everyone had a good reason, if you will, to be coming to work.The hardest thing about this job was knowing that the help I was able to give to the patients was very limited. The best part were the days that I felt like I made a difference that day in someones life.
Great company to work for! Teamwork was awesome! If I still lives in the area I would still be working at the state hospital!
