If you’re sick, be prepared to call all 5 people who work there to come in. You must have your shifts covered. Pathetic.
You are left alone with 32 patients, and a walk-talkie. Hopefully it’s charged, if not, good luck.
If you have a pulse, you’re hired. Management is awful. They give you incentives to pick shifts up, and it takes weeks to pay you. Sometimes even months. The patients run the show. So disorganized, it’s pathetic. The RS supervisor barks orders yet can’t even do the work. Move on, don’t even apply unless you’re severely desperate.
They are erratic, alot of favoritism.
No is heard, staff is neglected and agent is incompetent.
They ask a few questions and if your ready to work then they hire you. They don't even call your references.
No raises unless you are related to someone with power. Not exaggerated fact. A recent situation at my current job in New Bedford went as follows: recovery specialist was caught lying about her part in a medication error. (Those happen almost daily but DPH never hears about it) Soon after she is written up for her part low and behold, this totally unqualified girl gets promoted and given a $2 an hour raise. Hmmmm...managment love her because she lies for them. I watched this play out and soon I will be making a good decision.
Nursing is treated like gods. They make the MHS’s do meds. Unless you want your license on the line, have at it. Tons of med errors.
What is the average hourly rate for a BSN at High Point Treatment Center? I am enrolled in nursing school for January 2017 and want to specialize in addiction.
You will be paid FAR below other areas of nursing- look elsewhere.
