Must Fit Into Their Pre-determined Mold
Practical Nurse (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ONFebruary 19, 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

Discharge Coordinator (Current Employee) –  EtobicoeMarch 30, 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.

Co-op student (Former Employee) –  BovairdJanuary 22, 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

long hours

RN (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ONJune 25, 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.

Volunteer Service Excellence (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ONDecember 25, 2013
I enjoy the interaction with the patients, being able to hear what William Osler Health System means to the community, were and what can be improved in the eyes of the community and being part of making change within the community.

Being part of a Team, working hand in hand with our Managers, to ensure we provide safe, compassionate care to our patients as we advise department heads where we need to improve as we strive to provide patient satisfaction and make William Osler Health System the top hospital in all of Ontario.

The most difficult part of the job is not being able to stay on the phone for hours with patients that just want to have someone to speak with because they are lonely, have no one visiting them and seam very compassionate and caring individuals who you managed to reach through communication.
Pros
interation, customer service
Cons
not being paid, no full time/part time employment
