worst hospital I've ever worked at
RN (Current Employee) – Peterborough, ON – 3 November 2015
The people on my unit are great, which is the only reason I have stayed so long. Management only cares about money. It's certainly not 'Patient Centered Care'. We are always running short, and many nurses on our floor have been injured, despite what the sign near the staff entrance says. The hospital is top heavy with management, and too short of nurses. The contract seems to mean nothing, as management does whatever they want. Unfortunately, they hospital know they have the power, as the best paying jobs for nurses in the area. It's a shame community nursing doesn't pay better...
We have to pay $$$ for parking. The cafeteria closes at 1700 during the week and is not even open on the weekends. There is now a Tim' s kiosk open 24/7 which is hugely overpriced. Big brother is always watching as well.. we now have swipe in and out of work. It's always been practice that you show up 15 minutes before work and give report, then leave. Now, we have to wait until 0700/1900 to swipe out, or we got docked 15 minutes.
the people on my unit work well together and the pay is good
just about everything else
