Throughout my time here i have seen this place go from outstanding to pathetic in no time. the unit i work in has become a gathering place for hungover or still drunk party animals who are out to make life miserable for many other staff members. patient care is no longer a priority, and figuring out where the party is for that night is. the patients are now unsafe in this environment.

i really thank the social worker and the patient advocate they have gone over and beyond to any and all my questions and issues i wanted to get addressed but all in all the biggest issue was dr. cuervo considering the number of clients he sure does drop the ball which is critical in improving and evaluating the mentaly ill i had a round table he could not answer for his lack of in too many issues i brought up and his accient was fustrating to me can you imagine the language barrier to the clients a second concern was the lack of communication among the staff my suggestion is get rid of cuervo he is a liability and get a written system going on 1.spot the problem 2.go threw chain of command 3. fallow up on the issue ( ask for a time frame for issue to be resolved ) 4.maybe put up a board so everyone could get more involved toward resolving issues as they arise. thank you veronica,martha,stacy,jeanette,jennifer for keeping me posted with my love one and for your empathy as well as the other dr's and staff i'm willing to speak to upper mangement to explain my comments florence cuellar refer to mrs cena for my phone number...

It all starts off as a really decent place to work, n the higher end staff make it seem like your supposed to be there for the patients. When in reality staff is there for staff!! To see what staff is doing what and what staff is doing Who!! Pretty sad!! I was there for the patients and because all the patients loved and because I got along with most staff. Of course there's alwvays someone out to screw you. In this case it didn't matter how great I was with all my patients, they still chose to get rid of me because of jealousy. A House Nurse Mary Sandoval, A Unit Nurse named unmentioned (whom I thought was my friend) and male staff who's was trying to take advantage of me, and because I didn't let him, he turned on me. Two weeks before Christmas they made up so many lies about me and filed a report against me knowing that my year of being on probation was coming up in couple of months. Sad, I really miss my patients and had even Christmas Cards for them. It really broke my heart. Thanx For Your Time!!!

Unable to get patients evaluated for 7 day holds and other emergencies despite the fact that the rule is NMBHI must intake any patient that presents with a 7-day for evaluation. In addition, many of the patients are discharged in an untimely manner, put back on the street where they immediately resume their prior behaviour, using drugs, attempting suicide, etc. When the situation is discussed with the patient he/she states that he/she told the doctors they were suicidal or homocidal but the doctors would not listen or admit them, they were put back on the street just to come back to the emergency department overdosed, cut, uncontrollable, etc. Something has to be done concerning admission and long-term care for the chronically ill schizophrenics, drug/ETOH abusers, suicidal patients. This is terrible and unsafe for not only the patient but also for the community, in addition this is costing the taxpaper tons of money to pay all of the personnal at BHI only to have BHI turn these poor unfortunates out on the street to repeat their behavior. Unacceptable totally.

I am doing research for a project and would like to know how long BHI has been operational. If after 1994, where would people needing mental health services been housed before that?
