Registered Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) – White Rock, BC – 16 April 2018
An average workplace made more amazing by the people that work there. I can't talk about the rest of the health authority, as I only have experience on the Maternity ward, but I find it a highly functioning area, where you feel valued.
Great benefits and salary - poor senior management
Manager (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 26 March 2018
workplace culture at senior leadership level (director, ED and beyond) does not have open transparent or authentic communication in a consistent manner. this organization is run like a for profit business and is extremely toxic. it is a dog eat dog environment. clinical care and front line is much better than senior leaders.
unrealistic expectations of managers from directors and EDs
Leader (Former Employee) – Langley – 22 February 2018
This company has a culture of not addressing significant issues with their senior leadership. The CEO has absolutely no presence and is unable to do what a CEO needs to do...which is inspire the organization.
Business System Analyst (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 1 February 2018
Fraser Health was a great experience. Working in health care was a new battle but was very rewarding. The workplace is very large but very interesting to see how such a big organization organizes it self.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 7 November 2017
I had a very interesting and exciting career as a nurse at CGH and RIH. The most enjoyable part of my job were my patients and met some very wonderful people over my career.Over the years nursing has become a very demanding career, as patient acuity and staff shortages have increased. As a health professional it became very difficult to tend to our patients, as we were expected to have increased patient loads and ever changing demands on our tme. This is why I took retirement as of July 2017. I miss working, so that is why I have decided to seek other opportunities, outside the hospital setting.
RN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Mission, BC – 6 October 2017
A typical day goes by fast always busy. I believe we don't have enough staff to provide the care required Residential care clients becoming more complex and aggressive. The hardest part of the job is trying to provide the quality of care we want to. There are moments that make it all worthwhile
Nursing Unit Coordinator (Current Employee) – ICU, HAU, Cardiac Unit, Medical – 14 September 2017
A typical day on the Cardiac ward is intense and busy, that's what I love about it the most. The Nurses are great to work and I learn something new almost every time I work.
The hardest part of the job is reading the Dr's orders :) The most enjoyable part of the job is watching a patient go home with a smile on their face, and when family thanks you for helping their loved ones
Flexibilty and growth oppurtunities but pay and benefits are poor
Management (Current Employee) – Clinical area – 12 September 2017
As a leader in this organization, the pay is very poor and the health benefits also poor. If you want a good benefit plan do not become a leader in the organization stay within the union. The new provider of Employee Assistance is also poor. When I requested counselling services for difficulty in my marriage, the service provider suggested to myself wasn't even a registered clinical counsellor (considered the standard in BC ) and specialized in an area not at all correlated with why I was seeking help (trauma).
Rehab Staff (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 6 September 2017
Poor pay, good work life balance. Did not get trained in areas I wanted to be in due to staffing levels. Patients are horrible and the healthcare system is broken. People misuse the system and we need to go to a semi-private system.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – acute care – 16 July 2017
Fraserhealth is growing and well known facility which accommodates a vast and continuously expanding area. it has allowed me to learn over the years and advance my knowledge in the medical field and acquire respect of a senior nurse.
The staff within is like a second family and overall work well together. I am proud to represent Fraserhealth.
some buidlings do not have air condition for staff and patients
