Must Fit Into Their Pre-determined Mold
Practical Nurse (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON19 February 2016
Unfortunately there is a lot of horizontal violence that goes on amongst nursing staff at this hospital. Often managers turn a blind eye and/or fail to recognize that it is happening. It is true that nurses eat their young here and it is unfortunate that it is permitted to happen. If you do not fit their ideal mold, you will not work out.
Pros
Good wages
Cons
Long hours, bullying, oblivious management

nice place to work
Student Nurse (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON31 October 2016
Great place to work. Employees opinions are valued. Leaders work along side you and care. They want to do what is right and not just do what has been done for 20 years because that is the way it is. This organization places value on those working here, the community it serves and wants to make it a better place to work

Good community hospital
Discharge Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Etobicoe30 March 2016
Very busy community hospital, however a friendly staff makes the work culture quite enjoyable. Being a Discharge Coordinator is a difficult position that does not get much positive recognition. It takes a certain mix of authority and empathy to perform the tasks properly.

Healthcare environment learning about health care careers at hospital.
Co-op student (Former Employee) –  Bovaird22 January 2014
A typical day at work would consist of cleaning, helping people in/out wheelchairs, walking with patients, talking to patients, and helping co workers with any given task.I learned a lot about oncology (cancer), rehab such as physiotherapist, and nurses. The supervisors on the unit are usually nurses or occupational therapists. I enjoyed working with the nurses the most because I love talking to and talking care of patients, including with elderly patients who need assistance with breakfast or lunch. The hardest part of the job is getting attached to the patients and watching them get sicker and pass away. You need to be emotionally strong to be a nurse. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the patients leave and go home being more healthier than before they came. Nursing is a career I'd love to pursue, it's a very rewarding job.
Pros
Helping people get better, taking care of people, work benefits
Cons
Long hours, full time, being there when people pass away, not being able to always help

PRODUCTIVE, REWARDING, CALLENGING,patient care learning experience. A day starts from receiving patient to take care for t 12 hour shift, assessing the status and planned patient care for the day. team work is very essential in this field of care to promote at the best in nursing care for each patient we deal with every day. the hardest part of the job are challenges and the critical thinking we have to do each time. At the end of the day, it is rewarding if you see the patients get better and recovered.

very unhappy place to work
RN (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON25 June 2015
Management is well known to be biased, very controlling & unreasonable. They have their favourites & show it.
Some co-workers are lazy & do not carry their share of the load, & are able to get away with it. Management is not willing to accommodate staff who have disabilities or child care issues.
