great people to work with
Release of Information Clerk (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCJune 23, 2014
A typical day would be:
Depends when you come in you are usually assigned a job but depending on who is there you can be doing something else. For the last weeks I was working there I was training to be a Release Of Information clerk. I would do all the urgent requests from hospitals and doctor's offices, while answering the phones and as well as photocopying.
I – more... learned time management, organization, paying attention to detail and communicating with co workers.
Management was a bit tricky in the beginning there was a lot of turnovers but the last manager we had she was really good. She listened to us and tried to meet our demands as best as she could.
I loved most of my co-workers I am friends with some of them still.
The hardest part of the job for me was getting a raise and moving up. I felt like it was a job that you couldn't grow and advance in.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the people as I mentioned and also there was some problem solving which made the job interesting. – less

Dream Job
Student Nurse (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCNovember 21, 2013
Pros: learning something new everyday
Cons: long hours
You're taught with a lot of things from the different challenges you face everyday. Co workers are very nice and are willing to help you with anything that you need to learn. The most enjoyable part of the job is the end of your shift knowing that you helped save someones life today. This job is probably the most rewarding workplace I've ever had.

Surgical Float Nurse
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCNovember 13, 2013
Pros: team work, supportive, caring, compassionate
Cons: patient to nurse ratio
When I get to the floor I was called into usually I write report /take report then off to the races by 715. I do a full head to toe assessment first then medication administration along with getting patients prepared for any diagnostic procedures/surgeries scheduled. Throughout the day there are numerous things to get done, such as dressing/VAC changes, – more... IV starts, charting, and emergency situations. I learn something new everyday like last night shift I prepared two patients for a kidney transplant and did a lot of teaching with them about what it will be like for them when they return from the OR. My co-workers are extremely supportive if there are any concerns, questions and everyone helps everyone in a "team" nursing approach. The hardest part of the job is giving patients enough time to communicate effectively. I always wish I had more time to sit down and really get to know these people better but there is always the balance that has to take place in a busy surgical environment. My favourite part of the day is doing assessments and or procedures where I can talk to the patients and listen to interesting stories about themselves. – less

Hemodialysis Nurse (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCJune 13, 2013
Pros: cross trained in different areas involving dialysis
Cons: daily short shifts
Day starts with nursing huddle, ongoing updates and events that concerns the patients.NOrmally patient's treatment starts at 7 am running 4 hours into the dialysis machines. I am satisfied with my current relationship with my co workers. The hardest part of the job is the complexity of the cases. Enjoyable part of the job is knowing that at the end – more... of the day you were able to extend help to another human being in prolonging another day in their life. – less
