This company should be audited, fined and shut down.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – April 5, 2018
The only good thing was most of the staff. Very hard working individuals, doing the best they can. Most had the inmates best interest in mind. A typical day is delivering medications, sick call and then another medication pass.
Jail Administration tries to dictate to the medical staff how to provide medical care to inmates, putting your license in jeopardy. It was all about the cost, causing Medical and mental health care to be at the very least - minimal. The jail admin. would bully and throw paperwork at medical staff, swear and intimidate us. SHP did nothing to back you up. They made excuses, stating they are the customer, medical is a vendor. And if you complained, the repercussion was you were let go. I have never been treated so poorly as a trained professional. SHP’s and the jail’s expectation were just unbelievable. It was like being caught in a cross fire.
Short staffing was always an issue. There were times you would be forced to work 23 hours straight or be turned in for abandonment.
SHP is a prime example of why medical care in correctional facilities should be monitored more closely. Jail Administration is over stepping boundaries. Never work for this company if you value your license.
Jail Admin. dictating how inmates should be cared for, with no medical training. Short staffing. Hostile environment
