Horrible place to work. Poor management and lack of skilled senior nurses.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Markham, ONFebruary 14, 2016
Worked for markham stouffville hospital for several years in inpatient surgery. Very heavy floor with very little help available. Job requires lots of lifting and you must be able to cope with the ability of high patient turn over rates as well as icu equivalent patient acuity. Lots of new graduate nurses on the floor but unfortunately due to lack of experience senior nurses were put in compromising positions in order to ensure the health of the patients. Management was horrible. Unless you didn't speak up for yourself or enjoyed buttering up the manager; favoritism was always an issue. As part time staff there was no guarantee of hours. Either "feast or famine" where staff were forced to pick up hours due to sick calls or last minute changes. Or waiting to get called in when hours were scarce. High turnover rate for staff due to work conditions and high rate of staff injuries due to heavy patient work loads.
Pros
Clean new building
Cons
Variable work hours, poor management, heavy patient workloads

Medical Secretary (Former Employee) –  Markham, ONJuly 26, 2016
Volunteers, Staff are absolutely amazing and work very hard.

However, extreme staff shortages are not meeting staff requirements in relation to the direct demand of the ever growing "city".
Poor design of the new hospital in relation to location of departments and the departments needs to be closer to certain other services.

Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Markham, ONApril 27, 2016
VERY patient centred care, good staff and great patients.
The negative side, considering there is no unions the R.N's often work short, some favoritism amongst staff, and jobs never posted just given to people. Very unsafe environment.

It's a nice environment to work in. The staff is really nice and I enjoy the shift work. However, you sometimes bring home emotional stress that you get when dealing with certain patients.
