Staff are paid less than Mcdonald's staff for sure, while a college degree is required. The work is stressful and dangerous! Imagine all types of mental health issues, 20 men on one unit, with one, yes, I said one, staff to manage all their needs! and one nurse for all those needs. Forced 12 hour shifts, which is outrageous for families," too bad" is the managements attitude. Speaking of management! 4 CEO's in 4 years, DON is aloof, rude, stern, never helps, no clear policies, so one has to "fly by the seat of their pants", (means do whatever to get through the shift). Enough said, the hourly staff are marvelous people, as are the therapists, turnover is unbelievable!
