Well Organized and Excellent Place to Volunteer
Emergency Department Volunteer (Current Employee), St. Catharines SiteNovember 27, 2014
NHS is a ever growing health care system that has endless areas for professional and personal growth. They provide you with all the necessities to function in the health care field and interact with the health care team continuously. I volunteer with another young female. We provide comfort measures for the patients within the ER ie. fresh cold water, – more... a warm blanket. We fill the isolation carts for the nurses, as well as restock the gloves within each of the patient rooms within the department. We socialize within the waiting room and answer as many questions as we can. – less

Systems Administrator (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONJune 2, 2014
Every day was unique in a healthcare environment and it is a very incredible environment to learn in. I learned what it truly takes for health care and patient-centred care - a lot of hard working and amazing people - front-line and back-line. I worked with an incredible team that helped each other continually and with some incredible ideas that made – more... that new hospital become a huge success due to all of that teamwork and hard work.
The most enjoyable part of the job was being part of the social committee and coming up with fun activities to promote interaction between different groups and help increase employee satisfaction and to just have fun. – less

Passionate about my current role as Drug Access Facilitator

Facilitate on behalf of patients the copious amount of paperwork that is involved when applying for drug coverage through private payers when prior authorizations are required for drug funding.
Time – more... lines and the heavy load of referrals are the hardest part of the job and can be overwhelming at times when you are the only doing Drug Reimbursement for our growing clinic.
Love the patients, Love to provide them with financial assistance with drug funding and to ease their stress and frustration when dealing with private payers and provincial programs ( EAP/Section 16, Trillium and CCO ) – less

Working at the hospital is a life changing experience.
Ward Clerk (Current Employee), Welland, ONJuly 25, 2012
Pros: working with doctors and nurses is a great experience.
Cons: casual part-time work hours are very minimal.
Working at the hospital is a unique experience. My fellow employees, which is mostly the nurses, are a very rare group of people. They are a pleasure to work with.

The hardest part of my job is when a patient expires. I am pleased that I can be there to do what I can to help there families in anyway possible; whether it be just for comfort or for support, – more... as long as I can be of service to them.

The most enjoyable part of the job is when a patient is discharged home. Just to know that they are feeling much better and that we have done our best to help them through there illness is enough to make you feel that something we have done has made a difference in someone's life. – less

Good salary and benefits, but no leadership.
Security Supervisor (Current Employee), NiagaraOctober 24, 2011
The NHS has good compensation and benefits. But unfortunately that’s it. This health system is going under a major shake up that is affecting all of its employees. The turn over rate is at an all time high amongst medical staff and it seems no one wants to take the helm of this broken system which again is reflecting in the performance of the staff.
