I have worked corrections for 25 years and have never had a lawsuit.  

I can't say that. I have been sued so many times that I am on a first name basis with three people in the Attorney General's Office. Of course, when you're a DON, you are named pretty much any time that the medical department is sued.

I have yet to have a case go to trial.

just the other day, my RN coworker was terminated because of her "differences" with one of the psychiatric techs there. this girl put in lots of effort in our unit and was always doing extra shifts to help it. we were all surprised when she was walked out. everybody seemed to have issues with this psych tech, but she was the only person who voiced her concerns. RN was registry and psych tech was state employed.

i also have a friend in the lab and she told me her coworker was walked out for this reason.

i'm looking for a new position. registry at a CDCR sucks.

Registry everywhere sucks. I do not know why but 'regular staff' seems to have to have insecurities which they feel better about when they have a registry/travel nurse to look down upon and upon whom they heap the worst assignments. I'd sooner eat out of dumpsters than do registry again...

If you do your job and follow policy you have nothing to worry about.

The RN's that do lose their jobs are the ones falling in love with the inmates, having sex with them, or bringing them contraband.

Healthcare employees who get "walked off" in corrections deviate from safety rules/policies. Some of those rule breaking rules result in a felony and you your self can go to jail/prison.

If you are a person with boundaries that change or a person who will go out of your way for a patient then corrections is not for you, for in corrections you need to be black and white when it comes to communication and following the rules and have an attitude of this is the way it is. This is to protect you, me and all staff, it also teaches inmates a new concept to follow rules so in the future they can perhaps go back into society safely.
