Clinical Practice Consultant RN, CDE (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 July 2018
I recommend everybody to read "Federal audit reveals problems with B.C. First Nations Health Authority" on the Globe and Mail website. I found as a non-First Nations with a Masters Degree I could not advance upwards. So I went elsewhere.
P&MH Coordinator (Former Employee) – Vancouver – 25 July 2018
This 'Organization' rather 'Desorganized' that should normally work to improve the health through welness is rather a big joke unfortunately funded very well! Powder to the eyes to please politicians in lack of arguments!
The HA of FNHA means High Anarchy !!! A false harmonious and peaceful but disrespectful and sometimes hateful place!
Experienced, skilled, recognized professionals of public or mental health and the very competent people endowed with expertise, innovation and passion end up leaving often after having been humiliated or disciminated and sometimes intimidated or harassed by incompetent and inexperienced people, sometimes from the same groups and coalitions of ignorants people knowing each others, little stupid families of mafia, able to brave the limits of normal practices permitted by conventions and laws and capable of everything to keep their places and jump high in hierarchy.
This organization is just about money and beneficts, a true jungle and bad theater play where honesty, public and mental health experience and competency do not have any place.
The first days: Your passion to think you are helpful in new CA iniative
Senior Advisor Community Wellness (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 3 July 2018
Toxic environment Very Process driven Management slow in replying to requests Work day is full but no direction given by supervisors Hardest part was understanding how things worked and keeping up with changes
Nurse Manager (Former Employee) – Various – 6 July 2017
Too many high level Managers and Administrators with very weak qualifications. Job Security?: Non-First Nations staff can be replaced with First Nations staff. This is "legal" in BC. No personal opinion one way or the other - just saying. Lots of top talent leaving with bad morale. Read the news articles about problems experienced by FNHA employees on the internet. Former staff reported a lot of issues in the news. National Post, etc. And there was an Auditor General's investigation of FNHA due to serious complaints.
