Hello! I "survived" employment at OSH in Salem and Portland. I have one recommendation for the new Chief Administrator. CLEAN HOUSE! Get rid of all of the higher ups. This is the only way ANYTHING will ever change there. The mandated overtimes, unhappy employees, no support in doing your job. I was part of a team that was supposed to implement Behavior Support Planning in the hospital and we did not get any support from upper management, so of course our program is failing. Change needs to happen from the top, and until that occurs, nothing will change.
The new hospital is opening at maximum capacity, never a good thing, and it is because people are not moving around the system fast enough. Another suggestion is get rid of the PSRB, or the Psychiatric Secure Review Board. They have WAY TOO MUCH POWER! People who do not need to be at the State Hospital any more are still there due to this group.
Just some ideas. Thank you!
