State vs. County Corrections : have you worked both?


Specializes in Occupational health, Corrections, PACU. Has 25 years experience.

I am interested in finding out more from any RN's that have worked both county (or city) jails vs. as state RN's in California, specifically. How did duties vary, if they did? Did you do med pass in County? I have worked in State facilities, and with rare exceptions, the LVN's did all the med passing. Can you compare the two environments? Level of security and help from the C/O's? (I rarely ever felt unsafe in State facilities.)
