Job interview Friday

I applied for a risk analyst position at a state psychiatric hospital. Got a call today for an interview. (Position closed for applications 5/22. Sometimes the system moves slowly)

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.

Mention you are a member of The Huddle and they might admit you to the unit.

Don't fall for it....I went to the psych ward for an "interview" and it was a trap. Stayed there for 5 years sitting in my own feces. I feel much better now though.

DD=developmental disabilities.

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.
