Job Headline: Psychologist Needed for Locum Tenens Coverage at Correctional Facility in Taylorsville, NC
A correctional facility is seeking a psychologist for locum tenens coverage.
The facility is located in Taylorsville, North Carolina.
This role is full-time. Caseload will largely depend on the population of individuals designated as needing mental health services at the facility at any given time. Clinicians are expected to see individuals on the caseload consistent with the policy. There are also referrals, suicide risk assessments, and other clinical duties that do not always fall into the caseload numbers. The custody staff provides a presence in the area where clinicians work, but we do not assign C/Os as one-on-one with clinicians unless they go to the housing unit. Patients can only be seen if there is a custody officer in the area. Regular services are provided in an office setting and the patients are brought to the mental health area to be seen. There may be times at certain facilities where clinicians will enter a locked housing unit, but they will have a custody escort at all times. The facility uses HERO EMR and allows for e-prescribing, training provided.
