Just be sure you want to work in this environment. The hrs are long besides that some of the management was really nice. I honestly think that they could have trained us for confrontations a little better. I think they left us to chance.
Really look closely at how the administrative staff interacts with their TEAM. Are you welcomed and is it a friendly atmosphere? Check out the expressions of the staff in the unit. I saw unhappy expressions, no smiles or positive interactions with their peers or the patients.
