Correctional Medical Services
Mental Health and Medical personnel beware! If ever there was an outright nasty employer in Albuquerque, it's Correctional Medical Services. They are a contract mental health/medical provider to other agencies (jail/prison-related).
They supposedly provide mental health services to the inmates at Metropolitan Detention Center in Albuquerque, but what they really do is number crunch, and provide the least amount of services possible to make a buck. I feel sorry for MDC. I doubt they had any idea who they employed to work for them.
It is a shame of the loopholes they have found to deny services.
They newest one was: if it is not determined that the inmate had an Axis I diagnosis prior to substance abuse, they will not continue any psych medications the person may need or have been on; it's cheaper that way.
They other is: denying inmates discharge services to certain supports in the community because the people who work in those facilities are "disloyal" past employees. Imagine if your loved one had to stay in jail longer because the mental health system at the jail did not want to refer to other services in the community!
Any practitioner with any ounce of ethics needs to stay away from CMS.
If you don't crunch stats the way they want you to or deny services to someone you know darn well needs them, they will harass, micromanage and push you out in any way possible. They push until you quit. I'll admit, I worked there...and no, I'm not writing simply as a disgruntled employee.
I have watched employees there come and go, quickly. They overwork you: they do not give employees holidays off, and you can be called in at anytime. If you do not click your heels, they will make sure you don't stay.
I have heard many times when I was there that "everyone's replaceable": That was from the top (Health Services Administrator). The other famous quote was from the Regional Manager, who reported that he is the type of man "who would shake a woman's hand and steal her baby's lollipop." So before you think of working for them...ask them about their turn-over rate; then you be the judge. I really want to save you from making a big mistake that will haunt you...working for CMS, the devil incarnate.
