Community Hospital of San Bernardino is an excellent place to work.
Pros: working with the community to bring mental health services to those in need.
Cons: doing assessments in potential patients homes that were unknown to the hospital.
Typical day in this position: Treatment team meeting, then out to assess potential patients and community relations development.
What I learned: I learned the area of SB. Outpt. setting and the value of the services that are offered to the mentally ill.
The hardest part of the job: not always having the greatest outcomes, also sometimes the job can be dangerous.
The most enjoyable: the patients, the staff, the independence of the job, connecting with the community.
