Medical Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 28 February 2019
A normal day at work would be meeting friends for coffee in the cafe before going to our offices. I learned how important it was to appreciate and be thankful for my good health. It felt so good to be able to lend a helping hand to someone in need whether in a wheelchair, opening a door, or just simply getting a cup of tea for them. Probably the hardest part of the job was when someone got a bad report from the physician or a relative of theirs that they brought to the hospital for medical attention.
great place to work
strikes and being out of the office and on the picket line.

very fast work pace enjoying the social aspect of my position. Enjoyed working and interacting with the physicians . Worked independently with strict guide lines to follow. Dealing with the emotional sadness of the patients. Looking foreward to going to work and leaving work sense of accomplishment.
Nurse (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 18 October 2018
I started my career with EH, very thankful for the opportunity. Much like the rest of Canada, the health care system has its flaws. A high volume of patients with low staff numbers. This created a high-stress environment with little reward.
Learn a lot in short period of time due to high volume

I loved going to work each day to see the residents smile and as well to work with the coworkers I had. It was a very hard decision for me to leave my position but unfortunately it was necessary that I do so.
Food Service Worker (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 30 August 2018
the job is pretty straightforward and the management wants you to do well so they are helpful and kind, but the job requires a lot of walking and exercise that can be difficult for people with back problems.
Registered Nurse Supervisor (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 11 June 2018
Great place to work,although very busy. Staff and management are great to work with. The best part of my job was working with so many patients everyday,knowing that I helped them just a little, gave me job satisfaction. Worst part of my day was the driving to and from,as I live so far from work.
Licenced Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 29 March 2018
I was an LPN there for 11 and a half years. there is no job security with Eastern Health and I found that when you speak for what you believe in and your rights it goes unnoticed and/or you get in trouble. I quit working there due to nurses being overworked and no understanding for staff like myself.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – St. John's, NL – 26 March 2018
Very often working short, too many managers and not enough daily staff. Floats are pulled to 3-4 units per day. Regular staff hate to see floats and tend not to help them out with what needs to be done but would rather complain. Hardest part of the job is going from days to nights with not even a day in between. Most enjoyable part is being able to spend time with residents and getting to know their past and stories.
