The best aspect about Holly Hill Hospital is job stability. There are needed improvements across the board. The job is one that is underpaid compared to the industry average and annual raises are insulting to licensed professionals.
Working the 3rd shift on an acute adult population unit. Coordinated direct care, admission assessments, implemented and developed initial treatment plans. Utilized CIWA and Cows to treat chemical dependent population. Maintained accurate medical records through ongoing comprehensive chart audits. Enjoyed a supportive team atmosphere. The hardest part of the job was finding creative ways to balance meeting the patients needs/satisfaction while maintaining constraints of policies and financial limitations.

Holly Hill Mental Hopsital was a great experience. For those who wish to work in the mental health field HHH both children and adults is where you can get great hands on experience and make a difference/impact on someone life. I never know how much of a influence i could be to someone until I worked here.

Holly Hill is a great place to work! There are certainly some staff who are disgruntled and place bad reviews here, but that is likely why they are no longer there! The CEO tells us all the time "family comes first," and means it! Staff can exercise self-care, and we have the support of Administration to do our job. Management rounds everyday on units and honestly means it when they say "tell us what you need." It is not easy to care for patients with mental illness and those who don't want to take care of patients, definitely shouldn't work here. We are expected to do our jobs with EXCELLENCE, or look for somewhere else to work.
Nurses work with very high numbers of patients who are very high acuity. The conditions are often violent and there is little back up. Those direct care employees who are available will almost always try to help. All the employees really try to help each other out but the conditions are very dangerous. Management is brutal and very sneaky. They use paper charts in order to change documentation and cover up problems. The management is focused on money only and many human rights violations occur every week. Patients are rarely seen by physicians yet are billed daily for physician care. There are a few physicians who care a lot but most do not and an agency doctor commits fraud constantly by not treating or seeing patients.
The most unorganized place I have ever worked it's really a sh***y place!

The most unorganized unfriendly staff, management, and supervisors. It's definitely a lot of favoritism. I would not recommend this place it's not safe. Patient to staff ratio is terrible 23:1 sometimes. They do not have security. You are not properly trained for the things that you encounter here.

I absolutely love HHH and I enjoy working there. I enjoy helping others and I adore our staff. This hospital has been given so many rave reviews since I been working there. And I feel so privileged to be apart of such a great team.
Exactly the same: the place is a hot mess, morale is low. Chronic understaffing. Cannot get anything from the management.I did not even have a functioning blood pressure machine. No blankets. Every day is a struggle to get through the day. Would never work for them. All the positive reviews here are from the management, because they are having a hard time to staff this god forsaken place. Private company that only cares about bottom line and bonuses and never the patients or staff.
there is always openings even if everyone will reject you, they'll hire you

Holly Hill is a place that you have to stay on your toes to work. Making sure you get payed for the hours that you work. Also, training isnt very good. I didnt feel like I could ask for more training. When I had questions, I was told many times to ask someone else, when I asked that person, I was told to ask someone else again.

Holly Hill is very unorganized, no security , and very unaware of what we have to deal with each and everyday.Working for this company has taught me that there are lots of people in the world that suffers from mental illness each and everyday.

Most enjoyable part of this job, is my unit co-workers, we have a great balance and flow. I genuinely come in happy to work with them and our patients. The experience I've gotten from the one on one care we have daily with the patients has also impacted my life. I like the work I do here.
Management was detached, unfair and lacked integrity. They played the 'we like' and 'we don't like you' game with staff and assignments. One of the most disappointing places I have worked! Best bet may be to stay away if a patient or potential employee. The best part of the job was making patients feel better. But, patients voiced a lot of complaints about lack of one to one therapy, failure to have adequate snack food and even the old trays meals were served on.
Patients that needed and reaped benefits from a compassionate workerer
Getting vacations and a requested day off required, almost, an act of God.
