Climate of Fear and Uncertainty.
Pros: ot available if you want it, pcfc has a lot of "clout" and i would not be surprised, if this review never gets included.
Cons: pcfc focusses on cost control, yet pay 6-7 figure consulting fees to, legal firms(to discipline and sanction staff or fight unemployment claims), the latest "fad" in mh or education schemes, social work clinical servicers, lots of discrimination, (age, gender), harrassment, and marked favoritism
As a private, not for profit, PCFC receives funing from at leas a dozen oversight agencies at the county, state and federal levels. At any given time the oversight regulations of 3 will conflict with the other 9, and so on. In order to preserve these funding "streams" PCFC's administration dictates almost weekly policy and procedure changes that inevitably are changed again another week(eg if it's the 3rd Thursday, it must be OMH week...or DSS week, or NYSED week...). Thus safe and reliable standards of care for the children and adolescents at PCFC have gradually deteriorated over the past 3 years.
This undermines staff morale, leads to very high rates of turnover, and compromises the safety(see Workers Comp and injury rate data for PCFC) of both staff and children.
