Used to work here, and came in with a lot of high expectations. I worked in a different hospital before, and expected this to be a step up. It was definitely not. Everyone in my department suffered from extreme burn out. They could not hire employees fast enough to deal with the mass amount of people quitting. The hospital environment was extremely restricting of patients, and their freedoms were very limited. Patients can't walk around anywhere without a staff member beeping them through a doorway, which does nothing to promote self-actualization, confidence, and responsibility. I would never recommend sending a client here. Safety is my number one priority, and I can't believe this place ever passed any kind of inspection. Despite what I was told when I was hired, employees did not always have access to a radio or phone to call for help, which is the most basic of needs when working in a psychiatric hospital. I never ever felt safe there, and was required to work by myself with as many as 30 patients on a frequent basis.
