I'm looking to transition back to Psych from Acute Rehab. I would like ANY info on any of the hospitals in which I've applied.
I've read terrible things about St. E's, online, but not from those who actually work there. I did read a report that with 300 patients, there were 355 assaults in one year. I also read they averaged 1 death a month from either attacks, suicide, or medical conditions. Sounds really high...but the pay is good. However, if it's unsafe the pay is not going to be worth it.
Dominion looks promising, but they are always hiring, which makes me worry about retention. (HCA hospitals)
NVMHI is the most promising, as they aren't always hiring, and I hear good things, but they are offering the least amount of $, and budget cuts seem to be a challenge there all the time.
Any thoughts? Comments? Rumors? I'm interviewing at NVMHI and St. E's soon this week. Any help or info is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Admissions. At NVMHI.
I haven't been given any info at St. E's. Honestly, the HR gal was really rude to me.
