hi!! i actually work there prn currently
the staff is very helpful, and most of the mht's are great....there are just not enough of them to go around sometimes!
of course, same can be said of the rn's
adolescent has some staff which is "dedicated" to that unit...the chemical dependancy unit has fewer staff which work "only there" most of us work chemical dependancy regularly. st clare has a group which are also strictly based at that unit. i go all over. st. clare is faster paced with more admits/discharges...but you can eat the yummy food (*not*) there for free since they bring in the cart for patients!!
if you like psych, you might prefer the unit at the big house: one north....where the real acute adults are admitted.
i think the pay is pretty good with the diffs. i end up making approx. $30/hr. on a weekend shift.
lots of variety!!
