It was an a-okay job I liked working there back in the 70's Hardest part of working there you never knew when you were coming home. I like helping the clients and seeing them get discharged.

Management had a habit of promoting non-whit nurses generally from the Phillipines. You could be the most qualified, and never be given an opportunity to promote. Additionally, if you were hired as a temporary RN, had 20+ years experience you were not promoted to permanent before a new grad.

Management sucks. They don't care about staff safety. It seems like they promote patients assault on staff. .....................@gagsgdgdgdgdbdhfggfbfhfhdhrgfgdgdhfggrggdgdgdggdgdgdg

I loved working with this institution, mostly for the fact that I touched lives in diversional manners. The most important thing when working here is to “strictly “ maintain SITUATIONS AWARENESS always. It was an interesting experience!!!

Fellow employees are dedicated to patient care but management is poor. They have little concern for the patients or for employees. The hardest part of the job was not dealing with mentally ill patients but with uncaring, incompetent management.

I enjoy working there because of the patients. There is a lot if sitting and watching, interspersed with moments of very physical action. Most staff is very tired most of the time

It’s a guaranteed hours and lots of overtime.

Great foot in the door job for state employment.

I’d recommend applying, pay is decent.

So far it is a great place to work, especially if one is interested in how to best treat mental illness. It gets very energetic feeling there, but for the most part it is a calm place to work.

I quit due to disorganization, lack of communication and inability of the higher up personal to communicate to the staff. I was qualified for the position, in fact over qualified. I wanted on call and I know there is the need yet could not get satisfaction to finish the orientation needed to work on the unit.

I enjoyed the job. Some of the management is terrible while others are amazing people. The ones who were terrible were the worst people to work for and they were usually the ones with the most pull.

This place offers very little support for your position. Not enough PNAs on staff so others are overworked and underpaid. There needs to be an overhaul of this facility.
