Seriously reconsider applying for Healthcare Security Officer
AMITA Hospital Security Officer (Current Employee) – Arlington Hts., Elk Grove Vil., Hoffman Estates – July 24, 2017
As a Hospital Security Officer you WILL be subject to being punched(closed fist) , kicked ,slapped ,scratched ,have your hair or beard violently pulled , be bitten , have feces or urine thrown at you. You will have to restrain violent psychologically or chemically impaired individuals. These same individuals will potentially expose you to C-dif , Mirsa , TB , HEP A ,B or C , and any number of blood born infections and communicable diseases . You will do morgue duty with expired patients who may have been exposed to any or a combination of the above. You will walk miles or sit watches for hours with the same aforementioned individuals. You run the risk of being attacked by belligerent guests , visitors and even employees. You will be subject to no real job protection as rumor and innuendo abounds, pay is at best mediocre , benefits are OK but getting fewer and fewer.
A job which might lead into a career in law enforcement
