Job interview Friday
Posted 10 July 2012 - 04:49 PM
I currently work for a state DD facility. Risk analysis and management is one part of my job. Since I have worked there my caseload has doubled....and duties have expanded. Impossible. So looking for a job that actually ends at 5pm. Want to stay with the state.
This is a new position. In May they advertised for a director of Risk Management and 2 risk Analyst positions. They re-advertised the director's job.
I could just be getting an interview to fill their quota....a lot of the time they want to fill these things internally but have to interview a certain # of people. But this might be an opportunity and I want to be prepared.
I worked in mental health for many years and did some contract work with a couple of inpatient psychiatric units. So, I know a little about the system. I also know that these are very serious people and expect an intense interview.
If anyone has any experience with hospital systems, psychiatric units, or risk management, I would appreciate some advice.

good luck...mention the huddle and you'll get the job for sure
Mention you are a member of The Huddle and they might admit you to the unit.

I am curious about what a risk analyst does in a psychiatric hospital and what is DD?
What I envision from the job posting, is that incidents and injuries are reviewed with recommendations made for action to prevent further occurances. For example, where I am now, falls is a big issue. We have done some things environmentally to reduce the risk of falls and serious injury. Also reviewing the data for patterns such as location, time of day, staffing, etc.

They deal more with physics and construction. This position would deal more with human interactions, human factors, training, staffing patterns, compliance to treatment standards,etc.
Sort of like a safety engineer LP ?
It would make things safer but then there is the matter of rights....and what people will eventually do that you don't expect.
So if they just bubblewrapped everything, you'd be out of a job?
