I was hired to work as a Mental Health Worker for overnights mainly in the South 2 wing in 2006. I left after a year due to an injury that lead to be stalked by a patient. I had to struggle with the management to follow doctors orders to be on North 2 or 3 and had a panic attack when I was forced to go back to South 2 and deal with the patient that was stalking me.
I was 1 of maybe 3 MHW that had a college degree and most of my colleagues didn't have any training beyond high school. It made it be a very aggressive environment to work in.
Most of the male workers were there just for a pay check. This was one of their many jobs, and because of that, they didn't care about the patients' needs or well being.
I have always told people to send loved ones to McLean's and not here since the place is soul crushing and destructive.
