Hi ive got a job as an RMN in Adelaide sponsored by the health service, but im wondering especially about the inpatient care. Im not intending to work on the inpatient units long term as my expertise is with eating disorders (hopefully get a job in that in the south) but may have to initially. Im a little concerned about the practices being behind that of england and the use of mechanical retraints. Im led to believe that the nurses are general trained but whom have undertaken extra training in mental health so that'll be a little different to what im used to. Additionally i may have to work shifts (which i havnt done for a few years) which is ok but im worrying about getting childcare for my 5,5 month old who will be 16 months or so by then. Im told they are flexible about child care but is this correct?
Lots of questions sorry just that it would be helpful to get some responses if possible
many many thanks
