Great Community Hospital

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Groves is a lovely rural hospital with a friendly environment. Staff are skilled and welcoming. RN’s and RPN salaries are based on the provincial salary grid for nurses . Beautiful new facility.

Lacking opportunities

No room for personal or career growth, not enough opportunities to advance upward in the healthcare field. Not to mention the values of “fair and equitable” only apply to some candidates. Not a great environment overall.

Pros

A lot of great staff

Cons

Long hours, terrible scheduling, unfair pay

Too many politics

As a red seal journeyman I was greatly underpaid. Management doesn't deal professionally with issues that arise with any of the management team therefore causing bad relations between employees and management.

Good to gain experience

Good hospital to start out at and gain experience to build nursing skills because it is a smaller hospital. You have to do a lot more than what bigger hospitals may expect of you.

Medical floor nursing in community hospital

Very busy floor, often caring for patients waiting for alternate level of care (nursing home, rehab, etc), Often see silo nursing- unable to find someone to help out or unwilling to help you out. However, some staff are amazing, particularly the housekeeping staff. Needs a re-shifting in culture in order to be a great place to work. Clients get good care by nurses and doctors. Doctors are generally approachable, willing to teach, and great at what they do. Floor is often over capacity and management does not allow extra staff to come in to help out. Feel like you are putting your nursing license on the line sometimes. Management not helpful, supportive, flexible, or fair. I had more bad days then good here. Some nursing staff are lazy and unwilling to help, but others are exceptional at what they do and go above and beyond. High turn over, especially with RN's. I learned a lot about medical conditions, medications, nursing in general, and work culture. Some staff truly love working here and have had a much more positive experience than I. Often order lunch in on a weekend shift and have lunch together- which was nice for the morale. Some clients had interesting diagnoses which made the nursing care more interesting.

Pros

good wage and benefits, great pension plan, some great colleagues

Cons

poor management, unrecognized

Small town culture

The change in Senior Management significantly impacted the culture. No room for career advancement & salaries are far below median. People work well together, but there is a lot of frustration on the floors. SMT needs to re-focus.

Community Hospital

Management needs to work on their retention of staff. Lots of turn around with nursing staff. Of the nursing staff that is currently employed they are very helpful and willing to help train new employees.

Small town hospital

Challenging and educational experience. The staff were, for the most part, kind and helpful. Be prepared to hit the floor running! Unionized. You won't necessarily be able to get the shifts/hours that you want. EVER.
