I was really excited about this job. I really was. Then I got in there and saw what a sink hole I was working in. I wanted to die. I was given three days to orient to a very fast paced clinic. The clinic rests within a jail. Not only was I acclimating to the clinic itself, but also to the jail environment. I requested more time to acclimate and learn the ropes. The response I got when requesting more orientation time was "you got more orientation time than any other employee before you". So at that point I felt like I was asking for too much. My voice was never heard and I was hushed many times and told "you got this". The transitional nursing duties at staff change were eschew. A LOT of things that should have been done weren't being done. There was a guard there for my protection who was trying to toss her weight around as a nurse and undermine my every move and decision in the clinic. She needed to be put in her place. It took a month before she could be reassigned out of the clinic. You can imagine my frustration with this situation as a new employee. Quality control was dismal. I resent my employment fully with correcthealth.
Terrible management, Pricey family healthcare costs, very little training

If you like to get talked down to by the doctors, use half your paycheck for benefits, have NO support form your higher ups, talking to internal affairs, have no help from your fellow nurses, and work short all the time- then this job is for you. I feel bad for the inmates.
Horrible place to work !! Dont waste time applying!!

Unrealistic expectations from management, favoritism is given to certain nurses, always understaffed, there's NO room to grow, the nurses here do NOT work together, this is definitely not a stable company (very high turnover rate) not to mention the manager is impossible to deal with!
Black people stay away from this company. The jail officers are soo racist...it is not worth the discrimination. The pay sucks, benefits sucks

Worst place I ever worked as a nurse. So racist, not enough training, staff sorry, pay sucks, everything is horrible. Do not apply to this dump. Racist racist racist... Discriminated on from day one...they are going to catch a lawsuit.
Racist, pay, benefits, staff, workload too much for one nurse, poor training, & the list goes on...

Supervisor could use some charm school and management classes. Supervisor picks and chooses her favorites and makes schedule around them, if the schedule is even put out in time. The schedule is made for a month at a time, but doesn't even get posted until 3rd to 7th of the month. Staffing per shift is unfair. There are 12-15 staff on dayshift and 2-3 at night, very unsafe. Obviously they pick the same employees for the "random" drug testing over and over because the ones who have failed drug tests before, and had it "handled" never have tests anymore. The company would be good to work for if they did surprise visits to see how many people they are paying to sit around, do nothing but complain and talk about each other, and leave various food items and trash laying around in the clinical area. Oh and again, the supervisor is very discriminatory by race and by who she knows personally prior to hiring them.
Paycheck on time, benefits
Bad supervisor, discrimination, terrible pay, terrible scheduling, filthy

STAY FAR AWAY!!!!! This place IS HORRIBLE. Very short training. No support from staff, lost 4 employees in one's month time. Very evil, vindictive, aggressive, gossiping, unhappy, overworked, underpaid, lazy staff of nurses. No one is there to help you out especially when new. Micro-managing and battle of the shifts was sicking. They love to smile in your face and talk about you behind your back, very childish group. They always assume the inmates are lying about their conditions. They treat humans like caged animals. Deputies always short staffed. Deputies always stated, "I hate coming to medical" and would show it. License always in jeopardy. Pay is low, great schedule, food is horrible, workload is overwhelming especially for 6pm to 6am staff. No supervisors or managers (they all quit), a lot of smokers taking more breaks than allowed. This group of nurses are filled with misery and hate. They have truly lost their ability to be good people and great nurses. Everyday got worst and unhealthy being around a group of nurses who have lost their true meaning of being a patients advocate. The most enjoyable part of this job was the fast pace wealth of knowledge that I acquired. You definitely have to have concrete skin to join this group of unhappy employees. As they always say misery loves company. WARNING.....Do not apply for this job!
Schedule (12hr shifts) every other weekend off
No breaks, smokers, no help, evil nursing staff, low pay, shift battle, deputies low staffed, mirco-managing
Really enjoyed my time with CorrectHealth! It was a really exciting and fast paced envinorment that allowed me to develop my skills and critical thinking abilities. My co-wokers were really awesome as well as management. The culture of the facility was great which made my time with CorrectHealth that much more enjoyable. All in all, it was a great place to work!
Do not apply for this job/ high turnover rate for a reason.

Not a place for career advancement. Very negative work environment, corrections environment NOT the issue. Skimped on necessary care for patients/inmates. Complaints/conditions ignored by nursing staff, nurse manager. Three day's training is correct, but for the level of care they want you to deliver, it's sufficient. Female deputies like to dictate what nurses do and when, which also limits the care you are able to provide. Your ability to provide care is hindered at every turn both by staff of Sheriff's Dept (chronically short staffed) and your management. Upper level management seems oblivious to inappropriate personal relationship between staff members, which further contributes to a negative environment.
Sheriff's Dept chronically short staffed, potential safety issues, disrepair of inmate facility combined with inadequate care, management of medical department detrimental.
I was conned into the position with day shift, then 3 days before I started, after I put my notice in at another job, they said it would be second shift. I felt that this was dishonest. I have a small chils at home and my husband works as well, so now my child is never with me, dinner is never on the table. supervisors are always threatening in one way or another, people tend to talk too much.
