When I first started with this organization, I couldn't wait to go into work. The staff was positive and the management supportive.
Then came the cuts, all due to disorganization, mismanagement and poor choice of hiring managers. This facility cares more about managers having a university degree than what experience the applicant has. Management interactions have been increasingly negative due to young, inexperienced managers hired that do not use the expertise of the experienced floor staff, micromanage and discipline anyone with an opinion. Major power-tripping going on...
The nurses and allied staff that do the work with the patients are amazing, however. They are compassionate and caring. Morale has declined a lot in the past few years though.
I am hoping that the Senior Management will come to realize the error of their hiring ways, and start to listen to the experienced staff and re-think their management hiring practices. Then the organization can grow again and become a leader in Ontario Health Care.
