The place of employment is Indian River Medical Center not Indian River Memorial Hospital
Mental Health Technician. (Former Employee) – 1190 37th Street, Vero Beach, Fl 32960 – June 11, 2015
A Typical day at Indian River Medical Center can be one that consist of unexpected but welcome calm or a day that is very traumatic, having to deal with high acuity. We may have to care for and monitor patients with Alzheimer's,Depression, Drug addictions,, patients that are suicidal, psychotic, and we may have to deal with some levels of violence.
I have learned patience, a great deal of tolerance and empathy,and great respect for management, my co-workers and patients in my interaction with them. .
The hardest parrt of the job is never really wanting to deal with violence. The most enjoyable part comes with the healing process and recovery of the patients.
