Our staff consists of psychiatrists, state licensed clinical therapists, a full-time psychologist, teachers with special education certification, licensed therapeutic recreation specialists, a licensed dietitian, and nursing staff.

Competency Training

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 the residents’ safety, fire safety, risk management, cultural diversity, HIPAA, infection control, etc. throughout their tenure at Benchmark.
