Good place to work, it has been many years. This was my first job, initially only planned on working for the summer and ended being promoted and staying for approximately 14 years. Really enjoyed the people I worked with in the Radiology Department.
Registration Clerk (Current Employee) – Kingston, ON – 14 December 2016
I work in a very well organized department. We all work together as a team to ensure great customer service and patient care.
The most enjoyable part of my job here is that once I moved into a secretarial position I still once a week work as a registration clerk allowing me to interact with the public, something I enjoy very much.
OR Booking Clerk and then Floor Clerk (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 5 December 2016
Coordinating and scheduling surgeries Checking each operatory for sterile utensils Checking inventory on all medical supplies necessary for each operating room to ensure they were always available and in their correct place. checking in patients to ensure the right patient goes into the correct room having the correct procedure. Management was helpful and encouraging. Co workers : worked as a team. Hardest part of that job was a stress level that could last hours due to non stop phones ringing and emergencies. The best part was working with people.
small intimate type hospital
older hospital now closed but very small areas for quiet time for staff
Improvements in dealing with people,assistance, reliability and ready to change the place work anytime they ask for.
Cashier and Account (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 25 April 2014
The volunteering in this place was sometimes once or twice a week depending on whenever they need people to volunteer, and I was mainly working as a cashier and account holder, dealing with people who come and visit as well as with the patients in the hospital. Being on time is the main thing I have always managed in addition to being able to prepare everything on time such as coffee, different kind of drinks as well as sandwiches and cookies. A person in my position has to be easy going with a smile on, since people always need someone who can understand and be happy around them.They used to sometimes call me to go to a different floor where I have to do something else such as helping patients with their wheelchairs and carrying them from place to another, and here as well, we need to be careful how to deal with a person because we put his rest and need in a priority so we always need to make him comfortable and feel happy.The hardest part is when you really don't like seeing anyone is getting hurt and you want to make them feel better, but that seems sometimes impossible, so I deal with that by being optimistic and try to make them feel that there is always hope and together we can deal with the pain or any kind of illness they are passing through.The most enjoyable part of the job is off course dealing with different kinds of people and cultures and getting to know new people, and there is always improvement in personality and getting new skills.
Physiotherapy Assistant (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 22 April 2014
I worked evenings providing physio therapy assistants for the Phsyio Therapist to patients just coming out of the operating room from hip or knee replacements. We would apply ice and provide mobility support and advice to the new replacement recipients.
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 29 January 2013
I really enjoy my time volunteering. The volunteer coordinators are very friendly and will accomodate a busy schedule. The environment is also very nice to work in with all the staff being friendly and with many different volunteer positions around the hospital to choose from. The only thing i didn't like was that there wasn't enough work for me to do in a 4 hour shift.
