    I have been working at Sharp HealthCare full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Sharp is dedicated to quality care. Some very good staff development opportunities are offered in-house. Benefits are really pretty good for San Diego.

    Cons

    This review is for one of their inpatient psychiatric units. Staffing is at a bare minimum and as such things are missed, and patients who are in extreme distress in an acute setting don't get as much care as would be optimal. Additionally, staff is overly reliant on black humor behind the scenes and patients are not always regarded compassionately. You would expect nursing staff on a psychiatric unit, of all people, to be understanding about the manifestations of mental illness, but no effort is made to stem the tide of joking about their delusions, which just seems cruel, unprofessional, and unhelpful. This habit extends to some physicians on the unit as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more training in mental health care to healthcare professionals (to include how to be compassionately responsive to patient delusions), and make it required for those working in inpatient behavioral health units. Train nursing leadership to train their staffs to discuss patients professionally during report (a key time for sitting around and making fun of patients). After listening to some staff giving report a few times, decide whether you would want your loved ones being cared for there.
