New Inpatient Detox Facility

My name is Todd and I am starting a new inpatient detox/rehab facility just south of Pittsburgh.  I have done ER/ICU nursing for 13 years along with home health hospice for 3 years.  After that, I became a CRNA.  I now also do real estate investing.  With my experience in nursing, none of it involved inpatient detox.  I know the regulations and guidelines, but I'd actually like to talk with a detox nurse before I get started.  Mostly about expected patient load and optimal setup of the patient rooms and surrounding area.  And if you are near Pittsburgh where the facility will be or near Northern Virginia where I live, all the better.  Thanks!

So what do you want to be when you grow up? I’m the same way. Except you  were at the pinnacle of our career, CRNA, best pay, decent autonomy. I guess nursing jobs are like gorgeous women, no matter how hot they are, someone is sick of their emotional baggage.
