AHC is so large it has become a "business" not a care center
Seniors Home Care, Interventionist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 May 2017
I felt A.H.C. in past to be quite scattered and impersonal. Change is hard for all involved, but things never seemed to settle after a change. Generally, I felt insecure and unable to use my skills in my job because someone else my complain about how did something different. Units have groups that work together as a team, which can be positive if the team is compatible. In a large hospital there is always a large amount of "gossip" which I dislike.
However, there is a chance for learning and advancing through inservice education. I mostly learned from "rounds" which only charge nurses are to go on. I want active education daily about my patients from a Doctors perspective and to be able to ask questions
and get answers from the people who have the knowledge, not from the procedure book only.
great pay and good union
impersonal, frustrating, and restricting in large hospitals
