This place needs to be shut down! The staff are rude to patients. The management are not doing anything about anything, and this building is totally disgusting!! They let go of good people and keep people who refuse to work. I am ready to call this place history and seek better employment! I've never worked for such an unorganized company.
You Can Do Whatever You Want!
Short Breaks, Water Always Turned Off, Snakes & Bugs Everywhere In The Building, Dirty Building, Unprofessional Lazy Staff

There is little support here. Coworkers are too wrapped up in themselves to be of any help or support. Everyone is stressed out all the time. It seems the management has no idea how much they can reasonably ask clinical staff to do. I have had to cope with unreasonable expectations regarding the number of groups and notes I was supposed to complete in a day. It's just not possible.
Furthermore, I've heard stories from patients who have stayed at other hospitals, and they have said that in comparison, they don't feel they are getting much out of their stay here.

It is a nice place to work and the coworkers are a excellent part of the team. The hardest part of the day is saying goodbye to patients you have seen come and go, but the enjoyable part, is knowing the patient has receive the best quality care at the Rockford Center.
provides important training for entry level human service workers.

typical day consisted of montioring patients and evaluating safety as well as conducting beneficial therapeutic groups. I learned the value of being understanding of adolescents and adults suffering from suicidal ideation as well as dual diagnosis. My coworkers were essential in getting the job done sucessfully being as though it is definitely a team job. The hardest part of the job was keeping the adolescents as well as the adult treatment focused. The most enjoyable part of the job is to see how effective the groups and talks are with the patients.
