Bigmontana, In a normal situation what you're saying would apply, not in this one. You would be hard pressed to find anyone in this community that does not know or have a bit of an idea how bad the situation at Pine Hills is. I have also worked there and to truly describe the state of its current work environment to anyone is impossible, they don't believe you.
Since the second in command has taken control that facility has spiraled out of control. Hostile work environment is an understatement, outside of the complications with the residents. Under state law it is a felony offense to assault a corrections Officer yet PHS staff are prohibited from charging the inmates when they commit this offense (among a multitude of others). So as one would expect the assaults on staff are rampant. These have led to injured workers, lost workforce, employee sick leaves, even disabilities and what you are seeing in the community... a mass exodus. Right now they are so under staffed that they're in mandatory overtime and they can't find anyone to apply. Who's fault is that?
As you can tell I'm quite put out over the lack of action at the state level regarding the situation at Pine Hills and truly believe that it is on the verge of a major meltdown. How would you feel if you had to go to work every day at a turd slinging baboon cage where all of your coworkers were so stressed out and fed up that they were at each others throats? That kind of environment can make you physically ill just at the thought of having to go to work.
So is he wrong in saying anything, not in my eyes, I wouldn't hold it against anyone knowing what I do and I don't think anyone in Miles City with their head above sand would either.
