Wexford in Alabama has got to be stopped!
Mental Health Worker (Former Employee) – Bessemer, AL – August 13, 2018
Where do I begin? Since Wexford has taken over ADOC, our patients have suffered as well as staff members throughout the state. Patients in different facilities haven't seen a doctor in four months and from the looks of things, they have no intention of bringing on doctors for some facilities.
This company is CHEAP. Staff members are underpaid, we are short staffed, we aren't receiving enough supplies such as gloves, paper, etc., and some patients aren't receiving what they need. For example, some patients need diapers.
As far as benefits, they do not match 401k. The insurance isn't terrible but it's not great.
Management at the Bessemer, Al facility is HORRIBLE! The HSA and DON are both rude and honestly, aren't fit for the positions they serve. They do not assist and work as a "team."
Wexford also does not value its employees or listen to said employees who have to work with the patients every day. It's their way or there's the door (exactly what they told the previous Site Admin.) No one should have to work for a company with that mentality. Also, Wexford doesn't know a thing about Mental Health so this makes the job harder for Mental Health employees.
The state is suffering and no one is listening. There are so many other things I could list.
The officers at this facility are cool
