    I worked at Acadia Hospital full-time

    Pros

    The opportunity to work with some of the most caring people you will ever have the opportunity to meet.
    Make a difference in peoples lives

    Cons

    The staff who work hand in hand with either outpatient or inpatient services do not get the recognition most of them deserve.
    Potentially unsafe at times due to client aggressiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Just to keep in mind to take care of their employees. They are the cogs in the machine and they help keep the hospital running.

    I worked at Acadia Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of clinical staff excellent. RNs and Clinicians were very pleased with my empathic, pro-patient care stance, quick response, ability to calm agitated patients and avoid physical restraints, and excellent clinical judgment. Good EMR.

    Cons

    Upper Level Management valued none of the clinical abilities, expertise, or extra efforts of MDs. HIgh turnover of Psychiatrists and best RNs, leaving less knowledgeable, more collegially disrespectful RNs. Culture marred by mid-level practitioners placed in majority of Upper Management positions, out-ranking and supervising MDs. Emphasis on coding for maximum billing over patient care. Shifts changed without adequate notice. EMR training was adequate only, errors were transmitted with a blaming rather than helpful request to correct them. Solitary Upper Management MD completely at home with mission of reimbursement over best clinical practice, adversarial toward MD staff, nit-picker, but never had a word of moral encouragement. Gender-profiling of women MDs for "corrective
    action." 2 MDs dismissed on flagrantly slanderous, one-sided reporting by staff, with no option for recourse.

    Advice to Management

    The emphasis on reimbursement over patient care is obvious to staff and community. A thorough audit on funds reimbursed to Acadia could be in order, so it might be in order to prepare, and/or be a REAL hospital.
