Medical Transcriptionist (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 11 April 2017
KGH was a great place to work. The environment and my co-workers made going to work an enjoyable experience. The only downfall was the lack of training manuals when I started; however, my co-worker was a great help.
NOPE, NOPE (Current Employee) – & a definite NO – 18 December 2016
Been working here for under a year and this place is one of the most disorganized and backwards hospital. Department/Management is very poorly run and lacks team-player mentality. Very stressful place to work.

Patient Care Assistant / Healthcare Aide (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 22 September 2016
a typical day at work you go in and start your rounds and start a regular routine if the patient needs something or help you assist them to the best of your ability. the hardest part of the job is not having the help when needed for transfers or anything that requires more than one person.they do not work well as a team I learned how to cope with a wide variety of personalities. the most enjoyable part of my job was the patients and making a difference in their lives.

Occupational Health and Safety Assistant (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 7 March 2016
I loved the atmosphere at KGH. Its location was accessible for me, and both jobs I had at KGH (one through CCAC and the other through Occ Health) were great opportunities to work in the public sector in a non-clinical capacity.
Receptionist (Current Employee) – Kingston, ON – 2 October 2015
In my position I can be doing anything from refiling and pulling over 100 charts in a day, to answering phones, inputting information into the company computer. Privacy of all information is of the utmost importance in my position. I work within a team varying between 6 and 10 depending on the day. Our manager does not micro manage but is always available if we need information or someone higher up "to have our backs" so to speak.
