I worked with mental health patients so the company gave seminars on safety often to help avoid incidences as much as possible. There were a lot of safety measures in place such as wearing a device that, if you pressed it when in trouble, an immediate alarm would sound at switchboard and an announcement over the intercom would tell everyone where to respond so lots of people came running to your aid. We also got CPR training, back safety, crash cart knowledge etc. I worked on the Substance Use floor so it was rewarding to see people go through being sober for 1 week, 1 month, 1 year etc. and returning to give me a hug and thank me for helping them. I had trouble with one co-worker only as she wanted to be the boss on every shift and when I asked her why, she didn't really have an answer so management got involved and she flew off the handle and refused to work with me.
nice building and co-workers were helpful
some patients could be combative (not their fault)
