Horrible scheduling and work environment
RN (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 15, 2018
Do not work here unless you are trying to get your foot in the door with psychiatric specialty. Coworkers/patients have said that West Oaks and Sun Behavioral Health are worse, but Houston Behavioral Health is not much better in that case. You are only given 3 days for training, IF even that. You are thrown to the wolves due to frequent under staffing. Employees have been assaulted by patients before. There is not enough staff to ensure a safe environment. Management will just blame you for "not being careful". Written up easily. Some coworkers are okay, others will leave for numerous breaks and keep disappearing throughout the shift, taking over 30 minute breaks. Night shift ALWAYS gets there late. I find that disrespectful, taking up time that you could be giving report and leaving already, etc. Just don't work here unless you are just trying to get your foot in the door and then leave for another place.
lack of training, frequently understaffed, rude coworkers
