I have applied to a facility for adolescents. I come from a background of peds private duty. Some of those pts had psych issues, but I have no experience with pts in a facility. What is a typical day like? What is a normal staffing ratio? What are typical shifts? What red flags should I look for if I get an interview? I've been searching the threads on here and haven't found many answers. I saw one about dress code. What should I expect for dress code? Do most facilities give lots of training on de-escalating situations and how to protect the pt and myself in a violent situation? Is there a high turnover? What is pay like? Benefits? I'm in NC. Thanks!
