Love the job, not the company
Nurse (Former Employee) –  NCSeptember 7, 2018
Horrible upper management that is too disconnected with local employees. Numerous lies about shifts, schedules, hours, coworkers and training. No reviews or raises available to part time or full time staff. High turnover of PRN and part time employees. No one seems to know what is going on within the company. Very little training before being sent to shifts alone.

Great experience working with jail staff and employees of facilities in general. Correctional background or knowledge of would be very beneficial. Always felt safe and protected from dangerous criminals. Never a dull moment, fast paced.

Hardest part of the job was long (2-3+ daily) hours standing and preparing daily med pass and updating MARS with outdated pharmacy/EMAR. Short staffing and no coverage for vacation or sick time.

Must be self directed and have great time management skills, able to communicate with general public and/or criminals and able to work alone for long hours. Self defense classes would be helpful as most days are spent around and in jail cells, inmates and open pod(s).
Pros
Flexibility in daily work schedule, job experience-culture
Cons
Benefits, management/admin, short staffing, no room for advancement

Be skeptical.
LPN (Current Employee) –  Fort Myers, FLSeptember 6, 2018
Simply, they have proven themselves to not be trust worthy or have much concern about their employees.
They have a few outstanding management people on the local level, but corporate has shown they could care less about their nurses cutting hours and pay, switching established schedules with zero advanced warning.
When they came into our facility I was really excited with everything they promised and said they were going to do, but it seems it is turning out to be so much empty talk.

There is a reason they pay so well!!
Rn (Former Employee) –  Visalia, CASeptember 3, 2018
RUN dont walk from this job. Deputies and inmates were great. But wow!! I have never worked with so many rude. Disrespectful. And mean people in my entire life. I was so excited for this job. I think at least 8-10 nurses have quit in the past 6 weeks. And its not due to correctional nursing. How this company has gotten so large and has so many contracts is beyond me. COME BACK CORIZON 😢
Pros
Good pay. Deputies are nice.
Cons
Disorganized and simply mean from the doctors to the CNAs

Nightmare place to work
LVN (Former Employee) –  Conroe, TXAugust 29, 2018
Non existent new employee training, just expect you to figure it out and when you refuse an assignment due to being unfamiliar to the job you are told you aren't a team player. New grad RN charge nurses who don't know how to handle incidents, or even run a shift because they also had poor training. High, high turn overs.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
High turnover, unapproachable management, no training support

Toxic environment
Licensed Vocational Nurse (Former Employee) –  Santa Cruz, CAJune 2, 2018
This was one of the worst places that ive ever worked at. No team work, and poor management. Some coworkers choose to sit around, and you’re expected to do extra to make up for it. The manager is afraid to manage the staff, and lets people do whatever they choose to do for the day. The custody staff is amazing, but a lot of the medical staff is terrible.
Pros
Experience
Cons
Toxic environment

Poor management. Better avoid.
RN (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaApril 28, 2018
Avoid this place!
Poor, nonsupportive management.
Stressful environment.
You must know the specificity of patients in jail and prisons.Some stuff doesn't have previous experience with inmates and it might be problematic.Many people resign from job quickly.
Good salary but very expensive benefits.
Cons
poor management, stressful environment

Enjoy my job.
Nurse (Current Employee) –  CaliforniaApril 6, 2018
I love the people that I work with! The manager on site is very caring and informative. There are times that the job is difficult, high paced but we all pitch in ( busy and slow days, its a mix). We have the opportunity to be on the transition teams when we get new contracts which can be in California or other states. Positive if you want to travel and bond with your co-workers.
Pros
patient population, my co-workers

Solano County's Management is terrible !!!!
LVN/RN (Former Employee) –  Fairfield, CA- Solano CountySeptember 11, 2017
Managers will put your license and career at risk. The DON and Program Manager (which are both RN's) do not know how to make a simple schedule and are terrified to actually work as a nurse. Shifts are left unstaffed daily and if a co-worker calls off you are forced to stay. Managers dont care if they burn you out because "we are all replaceable". Management will request you do work out of scope and/or without correct supplies leaving the inmate and your license at risk. (improvise is what were told). Save your license and yourself from working with incompetent managers and coworkers.
