Ward Clerk (Former Employee), Ottawa, ON – August 17, 2013
Pros: patient contact
Cons: shift work
Worked directly with the nurses, physicians and other health care professionals to ensure that patients need were met on a timely basis. Started my day at 0700 and ensured physicians had all charts required to do daily rounds. Was responsible for the transcription of all orders, ensured patients were taken to in hospital appointments. Worked directly – more... with the Social Work and Home Care Departments to ensure a patients discharge. Enjoyed working with a diverse group of health care professionals from all parts of Canada and beyond. The hardest part was the shift work. The most enjoyable part was meeting people from all parts of the world and the smile on a patients face when they were discharged. – less
Cons: lack of leadership, strategic vision, employee recognition and retention.
Lack of direction and strategic planning. If you are looking to gain experience in a large organization The Ottawa Hospital offers this. Unfortunately the work ethic and environment is lacking and leads to a staff that is sub-standard.
