Not a safe work environment
Behavioral Health Technician (Former Employee) –  Grand Forks, NDApril 24, 2018
When I began working for RRBHS, I thoroughly enjoyed my job in all its entirety. Things changed when new management took over. It began to be a very stressful job due to lack of staff. This began to be a very unsafe work environment quickly. The high acuity was more than the staff was able to handle. There would be 1 staff member responsible for upwards of 17 patients- overworking both nursing and floor staff. This facility did not attempt to rectify any situations where staff members were physically harmed by patients- even multiple occurrences from the same patient. The management cares more about money and accepting as many patients as possible rather than caring for the needs of their staff. Staff needs were not met at any point after new management came to be. No constructive criticism was provided, only micromanaging and harsh criticism and fear of losing your job over small errors. Best part of working here is the coworkers on the floor- great team work, especially on night shift. If you are interested in working in an understaffed and high acuity environment, RRBHS is the place for you.
Pros
Great coworkers
Cons
Understaffed, overworked

Behavioral Health Technician (Current Employee) –  Grand Forks, NDJuly 3, 2017
At this job I am a BHT. You can expect to be overworked, under-appreciated, and constantly used as an "asset." Here, BHTs are the lowest of the low despite the amount of work we do with the patients. Rules change constantly. If you are night staff you will not be informed of these changes and thus, will get in trouble. If you are day staff, you will also be under-appreciated and have nurses and management constantly using you and yelling at you. Management will constantly remind you that your job can be taken away, making everyday work very stressful. Despite being a behavioral health institute, the cameras are oriented towards STAFF and will be reviewed often to make sure employees are not just "sitting around." You will work long hours and get paid the same amount as any CNA, even if you have your degree. Management will talk about you behind your back and spread rumors about you and your job performance or ask your fellow employees if they think you are doing badly. They CAN and WILL use blackmail and threaten your job. You will constantly be doing other people's work. Staff start out completely untrained, some for months or more. This means you are put in dangerous situations as an untrained employee who has no idea what to do other than instincts. On the other hand, you will be working with patients and it is an amazing learning experience. It is not worth your time.
Pros
3 days a week for most staff (12 hr shifts)
Cons
Management, Untrained, Underpaid, Understaffed, so much paperwork, etc.
