    I worked at Correctional Healthcare Companies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being a person who stays away from drama I really enjoyed working with the correctional care employees rather than the medical staff. I can honestly say that I enjoyed the fact that everyday was much different than the next,, that excited me and motivated me. It was a great experience of an autonomy type of nursing, good thing I had years of experience under my belt.

    Cons

    All chiefs and no indians. Chain of command? Never around when you needed them, Training was a joke. Very unprofessional DON / ADON. Everyone was always afraid they were going to lose their job as they were phasing out Positions and placing nurses in positions where you had to work impossible hours and days that your family life schedule would not permit. Don't count on a raise of any sort. Very pollitical. This starts at the top "corporate", which was very unorganized from support and following through with their promises of personal growth, etc etc. I am surprised that CHC still holds the contract.

    Advice to Management

    Try being attentive, supportive and able to follow up with your promises of productive change, instead of apologizing for the unproductive changes that frequently occurred . If you are good to your employees, in turn they will be productive for you. Quit managing your company so disorganized and unprofessional, what starts at the top (corporate).reflects in the medical management. This is why you have an ongoing issue with good productive and loyal employees staying with the company.

    I have been working at Correctional Healthcare Companies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    None. Some staff are fun and cool to work with. Been here 5 years.

    Cons

    No one listens. Management is a backward operating machine. One new guy started and had real corporate experience and the other managers were intimidated and quickly targeted him. Kudos to him for standing up to them. First I've seen do this and survive. They still are trying to fire him but can't find reason as he knows his legal. HR is a joke and the Directors are the worst pretend HR people ever seen. No clue but hide it by allowing staff to harass other staff. No professionalism. They need to get rid of the so called Directors of HR and get real staff who actually know HR to run it.

    Advice to Management

    COMPANY NEEDS A MAKEOVER IN MANAGEMENT

    Pros

    Your patients are interesting and challenging, good job to develop your assessment and critical thinking skills. Patients have a wide variety of chronic and acute illness. Chance to contribute to the wellbeing of an underserved population. Quite a bit of autonomy given to nursing staff. No higher stress or even less stressful than most nursing jobs.

    Cons

    Company states it has certain standards of care (discharge care plan for example) but then the physicians at a site can decide they won't do it. Or in general the resources aren't provided to achieve the high standards. Employees who strive for excellence don't stay very long with this company because there is no reward for doing a good job. I think the only measurement the company really cares about is under budget. There is no professional development training available. Since you are a contract employee at the sites you aren't thought of as integral part of the team by the owners of the site (custody). The custody powers that be can say, "We don't like that nurse because of any reason (she's ugly)." CHC has no recourse but to listen to them and try and get rid of that employee even though the reason they aren't wanted at the facility is actually an illegal discriminatory reason.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more motivation and leadership to pursue excellence. Yes they are prisoners, but that is no excuse for not wanting quality and excellence. No excuse at all.
