Pros: get to be on the "front lines" working with very acute mentally ill individuals.
Cons: burn out rate is pretty high
On the outside looking in, the organization may appear to say all the right things; yet, operationally, there is much dysfunction. (I agree with the former CEO's comments.) For a hospital that hangs banners up and down the halls stating, "Fairfax Hospital - Ranked Best Hospital by US News and World Report," I feel the organization needs to re-focus on what that statement means to their patients and staff. There is a continuous "revolving door" cycle for staff, which is a clear review of this hospital, operationally, as well as organizationally.
