Security Officer - Bailey Boushay House

Company: Virginia Mason
Location: Seattle
Posted on: October 18, 2020

Job Description:

Job Number: 201445

Department: BBH Emergency Shelter Program

Hours: Variable hours on all shifts

Monday - Sunday/variable; All Shifts/variable

At Virginia Mason the Security Officer provides a safe and secure environment for patients, visitors, and staff of the Medical Center, provides protection of property, and curtails criminal activity through visible deterrents.

This position is a part of the Bailey-Boushay House outpatient and Emergency Homeless shelter programs.  If you are homeless and have HIV/AIDS, your challenges can seem insurmountable. Especially if you also have mental health and chemical dependency issues. Every night, moment-to-moment survival is the priority. Taking HIV medications properly is not.

About one third of the clients in our HIV outpatient program are homeless. They have access to hot meals, showers, laundry facilities and more. But until recently, they were on their own after 4 p.m.

With funding from the City of Seattle, Bailey-Boushay House now provides an overnight shelter for its homeless population. It is the first — and only — homeless shelter in the country that only serves people with HIV.

Every night, our big room and hallways are transformed into a 50-bed shelter. Cots, sleeping mats, blankets, pillows and privacy dividers all help create a comfortable, safe place to sleep. There are separate spaces for men and women.

Each guest has a container for storing personal items. Equally important, they have a place where they are respected and able to reclaim a measure of dignity.

Before the shelter opened, many of our clients would simply stay in the neighborhood, sleeping in people's yards, garages and doorways.

Most did not feel safe — and were, indeed, not safe — in the city's other shelters. Many were mistreated because of their sexual orientation. Some were mugged for their medications. A few died every year from extreme cold conditions.

With the safety of the night shelter and the services of our outpatient program, our most vulnerable clients now have the support they need to stick with their complicated medication schedules.

Qualifications:

High school diploma or GED required.

Basic certification through the International Association for Healthcare Security and Safety (IAHSS) required within three months of position entry; Advanced certification required within six months of position entry.

Also required is a demonstrated ability to work both independently and as part of a team.

Strong problem solving ability, willingness to challenge individuals and defuse situations in a polite and professional manner. Must be willing to work directly with those in a crisis situation.

Excellent interpersonal skills and demonstrated ability to work well with people from diverse backgrounds, and the ability to remain courteous and considerate while working in a demanding and stressful situation.

Candidates must be at least 21 years of age, and have a valid Washington State Driver's License with a five-year clean driving record, for auto liability coverage through Virginia Mason Medical Center.

Preferred: 2 years uniformed officer or guard experience in a healthcare setting or an Associate's degree in Criminal Justice.

Just as Virginia Mason is dedicated to improving the lives of our patients and our community, we are equally dedicated to your professional and personal success. With a wide range of perks that includes comprehensive compensation and benefits, continuing education and support, and the opportunity to live in one of the most livable cities in the country, you will find that an opportunity with Team Medicine is one worth taking.

We are an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
