    I worked at Options Behavioral Health System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with the children is about the only positive thing I can say about this company. Pay is pretty good for nurses.

    Cons

    Not enough nurses, direct care, or mental health techs especially on 3rd shift which violates some state rules on specific units and could put licensed professionals at risk. They offer nice benefits but forget it if you think your gonna be able to use your vacation time it's just not enough staff to cover you being off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some of the profits that you earn and invest in recruiting more employees. Also show some appreciation to the current employees you have instead of burning them out with mandatory double shifts because of staffing issues maybe this will assist with your turn over rate.

    Pros

    Getting the opportunity to meet and assist patients and the immense coworker support that makes the day to day acheivable.

    Cons

    Job security-never knowing if you will have a job the next day. The system is not set in stone yet. One day things are consistent, the next day not so much. Lack of communication within departments, empty promises from higher ups. Staff retention-no one stays in their position long, some take the steps in either quitting or finding other places of employment. Lack of support or acknowledgement of the individuals that have put in 10plus years. Management support- lack there of. No acknowledgement or appreciation of the hard work put in by employees day in day out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate, acknowledge, and commend the hard work the employees put in, because currently morale is at an all time low- every department, everyone is feeling strained, unappreciated, and overworked with no boost or support from you. Without these: appreciation, acknowledgement, and support, its a sure fire way to loose your best people that have been willing to help build and grow with no hesitation.

    I have been working at Options Behavioral Health System part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working with acutely ill mental patients is very rewarding as you see them progress from the state they're in upon admission to being stable enough to discharge. Learning from co workers and peers on the floor is valuable and makes for quick and lasting friendships.

    Cons

    Working in an environment where communication that should be vital is treated as optional, where ethical guidelines are ignored and disregarded on a daily basis, where both patients and staff are almost daily put in harms way is an incredibly frustrating norm at OBHS. Consistency is not valued highly by those in authority and the in-fighting between departments, and even within some departments, is nearly impossible to avoid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a Psychiatrist who actually cares about his patients and knows how to do an assessment properly (not to mention legibly). Stop admitting pt who don't meet criteria just because your census is low and the CEO says admit them anyway. Invest in real 5-point restraints and teach your acute staff how to put pts in a proper hold. Provide better programming resources to your staff, PRTF and acute. And pay your PRN staff the differential that they deserve rather than the same as the full-time benefited staff that call off all the time (because of previously listed issues) and make the PRN staff's job that much more difficult.
