Benchmark Behavioral Health Systems employs staff members who are dedicated to providing quality care. Our staff consists of psychiatrists, state licensed clinical therapists, a full-time psychologist, schoolteachers with special education certification, licensed therapeutic recreation specialists, a licensed dietitian, and nursing staff. At Benchmark, we aim for a 1:4 youth care worker staff to patient ratio.
Upon hire, staff must complete 40 hours of initial core competency skills and unit orientation prior to working independently on the units. All direct care staff receive training specific to de-escalation and physical management of the agitated patient.
Even when initial training is completed, all staff members are required to attend mandatory skills training annually on topics related to patient safety, fire safety, risk management, cultural diversity, HIPAA, infection control, etc. throughout their tenure at Benchmark.
Benchmark Behavioral Health Systems utilizes a Performance Improvement Program to assure excellence in the staff development program.
