WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR

At Franciscan Health, behavioral health covers body, mind and spirit. Our behavioral health advisors understand that and seek to help each patient find balance. It’s more than a job, it’s a calling – a calling to walk beside each individual and address their specific needs.

Are you able to follow psychosocial plans? Do you communicate well with patients, families and fellow staff? Are you experienced in therapeutic behavioral health? We have a special place that needs your skills. 

WHAT YOU WILL DO
  • Monitor and assess changes in the tone and quality of the therapeutic milieu and address potential concerns that threaten patients' optimal safety, healing, and supportive environment.
  • Observe, record, and monitor behaviors related to risk of patient suicide.
  • Communicate pertinent patient information, condition changes, and incidents to the multidisciplinary team.
  • Document patient care information and ensure timely and accurate completion of patient care records in accordance with policies and procedures.
  • Closely monitor and adhere to patient treatment plans in the delivery of care.
  • De-escalate situations involving agitated or aggressive patients to prevent behavioral-based safety hazards using established principles in de-escalation, including potential application of physical restraints.
  • Successfully pass Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI).
WHAT IT TAKES TO SUCCEED
  • Prior Social Services experience.  
  • Knowledge of professional regulation and facility/program accreditation requirements.
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Standard Precautions.
  • Lead and coach others.
  • Maintain composure, even in very difficult situations.
  • Manage conflict and tactfully handle complaints and difficult situations.
  • Make decisions and use judgement in ambiguous situations.
