Unorganized

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was impressed by the way Granite Hills looked HOWEVER looks can be deceiving. Granite Hills lack security, training and professionalism. During my short stint(yes stint, felt like I was in prison)there, it was a huge circus. Management is absolutely clueless on the way to operate their departments. Some of the staff had to school management about referencing to policy and procedures. Management make up rules on a daily basis! If you’re not seasoned in your profession, you will not know where to turn for clear direction. The one thing they got right, was hiring a good chef! Food is absolutely delicious.

Pros

Pay, Nice staff and Good food

Cons

Management and burnout

Toxic place to work!

Granite Hills is not the place for anyone serious about healthcare, safety, or license protection. Management is unorganized and won't listen to the floor staff. HR is slow to respond. Staffing was constantly an issue for nurses and techs (many quit within the first week). In my short time there I witnessed employees get attacked and multiple patients jump over the nurse's station. Also, there is no security if a rapid response occurs everyone is expected to come running and corral the patient, which in my personal opinion isn't safe or effective. Overall, Granite Hills is not the place for anyone serious about healthcare. Save yourself the trouble!

Dangerous place to work

Corporate knows and they don’t listen to employees. Seasoned mental health employees that have been working with the very same patients for years know what works and what goes not. Management is too stubborn to listen to these cues. I leaves for huge safety issues of both employees and staff.

Very unorganized, lack of safety and poor management

Anyone looking to apply for a position at Granite Hills hospital should just not do it. It is an extremely unorganized facility, management has no clue how to run a behavioral health facility and many of the upper management and corporate people are extremely rude and belittling. There is a huge lack of training as most that they have in charge have never worked a day in that dept/ field. The pay is decent but the benefits and PTO are terrible. The facility is extremely unsafe for both the staff and patients as they have an extreme turn around of staff due to that and they honesty just hire anyone off of the streets.

So Much Potential

This is a beautiful facility with so much potential to help people with mental and behavioral health struggles. Unfortunately, starting a new hospital requires a tremendous amount of work and staff turnover is so high that it is difficult to feel like we are functioning at the highest capacity.

Work culture is awful, horrible communication and management

The management across could not care less about their employees. It is a new facility that does not make up for the lack of caring from management or the terrible communication. The only thing this hospital cares about is making money. They do not care about the quality of care or actually making a difference to patients.It’s sad that this community needs a behavioral health hospital like this and Granite Hills is not going to be the solution with this management and lack of caring. Management changes things that affect employees and don’t communicate it to the floor staff. It is clear there is an us and them mentality when it comes to management and the rest of the employees. Every concern you have will not be taken seriously or even followed up on. Maybe if you have a management position you will enjoy working here but as a direct floor staff run far away.

Pros

$3 meals

Cons

Management unorganized unsafe

Disorganized dangerous workplace

One would think with a 2 week orientation period you’d be more trained and prepared to hit the floor, but not the case at Granite Hills. The entire orientation 8-4 each day was spent listening to administration pat themselves on the back. Multiple times leadership forgot there was orientation happening and left us sitting in a room for hours. Training consisted mostly of health modules on the computer, and only 1 day to actually practice crisis intervention. They then throw you on the floor to “shadow” but you are expected to know how to do everything right away. Management is an absolute disaster, if you have a problem, good luck getting in contact with someone as there’s no real established chain of command. Employees are just bodies. Extremely high acuity of patients and poorly trained staff is a recipe for disaster. They are more concerned with opening more units and bringing in money than they are training staff and helping patients. I can’t stress enough how far away you should run from this job.

Pros

Decent/cheap meals

Cons

Disorganized, dangerous, stressful

New facility, great pay and benefits

Granite Hills Hospital is a brand facility. There is room to grow and allow new employees to be part of a great experience. Yes, there are oftentimes workflows that are still being worked out...that is what a start-up facility experiences. The CEO is an asset to the organization and genuinely cares about the population we are serving. I am glad to be part of this facility and will continue to work diligently to make it great!

Just don’t

For the sake of your overall well being, your career and any license you may have just don’t apply here. It is unsafe the pay is well below market and benefits are even worse then the pay. It is unsafe for the staff and the patients and don’t think going to HR or anyone at corporate because it will not help and it will only make your time there worse then it already is. Higher level “leadership” is beyond clueless and many of the directors are clueless as well. The turnover has been constant and will not be stopping anytime soon. Again for the sake of your license, career and well being look elsewhere for a job.

Very disorganized, unsafe work environment, poor communication, lack of training, and poor management

This facility has so much potential to be great, but lacks in so many areas. There is no training given on the unit and the disorganization makes for an unsafe environment for staff and patients. High rate of staff turnover. Management doesn't have a solution and doesn't seem to care when staff brings these issues to their attention.

terrible management and unsafe

The pay is fair that is it as far as the positives go. The management does not care what is the input of the staff nor do they care about the safety of the staff. If you have a pulse you are thrown right into the thick of it no training, no caring if you are comfortable with the work and no care for safety. No staff are appreciated and management makes it clear that they really do not care about the staff that are directly involved in patient care.All of the directors are concerned with profit over staff and patients for that matter. Besides the fact that management could completely careless about the staff and patients, they are rude and most of them have attitudes when you are simply trying to do your job and ask basic questions.The amount of turnover is so concerning and management really does not seem to care. If you are looking for a professional, safe, health work culture and actually appreciated as an employee, do not go to Granite Hills.

Pros

Some Co-workers

Cons

No training, unorganized, unsafe, terrible work culture

Above average pay at a high cost toward safety.

The "hands-off" approach does not coincide with the high acuity of patients admitted. There is no training on the unit, and a disorganized atmosphere. The safety of staff and patients is a concern, and some great coworkers quickly leave due to lack of support and disorder. The pay is above average.

Pros

Good flow of exceptional and experienced coworkers.

Cons

Unsafe and chaotic atmospere.

Beautiful facility, but it is very disorganized, high acuity patients with high levels of nurse to patient ratios.

A typical workday involves a lot of disorganization on the unit. No HUC, so while trying to care for patients you are constantly answering the phone. High ratios for 1 RN to 8 patients, lots of staff call in daily. Hardest part of the job, not enough staff for safety. And lack of communication amongst the management and staff. Positives, great food and a beautiful hospital. Highly acute patients without security on staff and no restraint facility. Pay is decent, however they have many travelers. Good mixture of ethnicity among staff. Overall a lot of good staff that care. But poorly organized as in training and precepting staff.

Pros

Good food, decent pay, beautiful hospital

Cons

Not enough staff, high acuity patients, unsafe patient ratios

Corporate micromanaging, lack of leadership from management, and unsafe work environment

There is a lack of management and care for the employees at this hospital. When concerns are brought up about employee and patient safety, there is no follow through or follow up. Even if the problem is talked about, corporate leaders minimize the experience and it’s stated as “we’ve always done this and we won’t change because we are an established hospital system”. They have a very outdated system that does not work for mental health anymore and their system is not only detrimental to employee mental health, but to the mental health of the patients they are supposed to serve.

Pros

Awesome coworkers

Cons

Uhs, corporate, management, felt like patients weren’t safe, employee safety

Poor culture

Culture in this company is not where it should be for it to be a brand new facility. Turnover rate is extremely high for a facility that’s been “open” since January. Leadership needs a lot of work. Their focus is on self not on team. A lot of gossiping. Feels like you’re walking into a middle school girls club where if you’re not part of the clique , you’re constantly talked about.
