A great group of ladies who have been volunteering for many years. The gift shop has unique and every day items for those waiting for treatment or those who wish to purchase gifts. The gift shop is open to the public.
CKHA is a place for RPN's to make a placement within their careers, This place of employment is solely ran by seniority and management. If you have skills and qualifications for a position within the hospital you will be completely overlooked or not even considered for said position, unless you have higher seniority. Management seems to show carelessness to their employees and the confidentiality between employer/ management and employees is considerably in breech more often than not. There is no advancement opportunity unless you plan on being employed for a good amount of time to even be considered for a regular part-time employment opportunity and full time you should consider a career here at at least 10 years before advancing to this placement. Salary for RPN's is considerably low compared to other hospitals in southwestern ontario and work life balance is comparable depending on which unit you are working in.
It is a great invironment just poorly funded and new management has brought things down quit a bit as in respect and standards. Tho the health alliance and the experience you have there makes it worth it. Great group of employees from Housekeeping to dietary and nurses and doctors!
The focus of care is more money/ bed availability oriented than patient centered.. patients are discharged sooner than their recovery because of the bed crisis!! Some physicians are terrible...they don't even see the patients nor do they assess them but get paid for it!!
First time working in clinical setting as RN, staff there welcomed me with open arms, willing to train and educate a new RN with no questions asked. Everyone is positive, upbeat, willing to help when needed. Multidisciplinary team is amazing as well! Well run hopsital, was dissapointed to leave due to illness. Would not hesitate to apply again and be part of the CKHA team!
Working in the hospital on a medical unit was very fun. There was always new patients. The staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I learned how to time manage and accurately keep records of each patients day and activities. The hardest part of this job was family support when the patient was palliative. The best part of this job was being a helpful part of a patients day and seeing progress daily.
Benefits and Vacation were above average
Not too much down time
I love working for the CKHA. I love my job, the people and the patients. It is very fast paced and there always seems to be something new happening to keep you on your toes! Management in my department could use some work but its not the worst.
Wage, co-workers, patients.
A typical day in the newspaper industry is chaotic at best. Face paced and constantly changing. I have learned to deal with all aspects of the business. Accounts receivable, payable, human resources, contracting, and mor
Always a different Day
Can be taxing
At the hospital. I develop strong skills and fantastic leadership, I Iove how we Health Care Providers shared the love and compassion for the patients in the moment of needs. Also if I have any questions, all of them were more than happy to help and guide. I am hoping to have the opportunity to work in that magnificent environment, where I can show my passion for caring and nurse. In each floor that I had my clinical is a different experience and approach to clients. My favorite floor was Surgery floor it was fantastic experiences, giving me the opportunity to add new skills to my knowledge.
