    "Behavioral Health Units: Good floor staff, poor management"

    I worked at Adventist HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    Jovial and fun floor staff, some units have almost a familial environment. unit managers are generally good but highly overworked

    Cons

    Extraordinarily poor staffing measures. Units are constantly full yet chronically understaffed. complaints are made regularly but the upper level management does not seem to listen. Managers rarely stay on for more than a year due to the stress of the environment. Because of the emphasis on filling beds, patients are often placed on inappropriate units to the detriment of staff and patient safety.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your floor staff, listen to what they need, and push to get it done. I promise you patients will be happier and staff retention will increase if the floors have enough staff available and each patient is placed in the proper environment.
