This is he most mismanaged company I have ever seen. It is owned by HCA but Valley doesn't follow HCA rules, and everyone knows it. In fact, during orientation they tell you " don't listen to any of these rules or guidelines because Valley does things the way they want to". They violated every employee right that exists. And they have a separate HR department who not only allows it, but participates in it.

it takes a very caring and stern person to work with the kids at this facility. If you are easily walked on they will eat you alive. The kids are the best part of this job though. The management and nurses can be difficult to work with sometimes.
I’m sorry you had a bad experience. Parkridge Valley is dedicated to helping individuals who are dealing with mental, emotional or behavioral health conditions and we strive to create the best possible outcome for the patient by immediately connecting callers with mental health professionals who can provide suggestions for appropriate action and information about community mental health resources.

Toxic Workplace Environment. No place for advancement. No appreciation for hard work. Lots of drama. Poor management.
I had one goal I tried to meet every shift, to talk personally and significantly with every patient on my unit. I documented their perception of recovery thoroughly so the larger treatment plan could benefit from it. I am good at personal conversations with hurting people, both physical and emotional. It takes will and courage to approach someone beyond the superficial, and that is what I like best about bedside-type nursing.
Parkridge Valley is a great place to work. I work as an Executive Assistant and have had a wonderful experience. I enjoy working with such a great team and have learned so much about behavioral health.
