RPN in Medicine
on 8 March 2022
Fast paced, always learning, great coworkers.
Team based, everyone works well together. Fast paced and can be very busy especially these days but working within a good team makes a big difference.

Management pose a significant problem
In my honest opinion, while I don't want to completely discourage anyone from applying (most of my coworkers are amazing to work with), I do want to say that management is one of the largest problems we have. They don't realize how many people they are driving away, we are on the brink of becoming critically short staffed (more so than we are now) with a couple more people considering leaving. People are getting to a point they are tired of having to work under them and management overestimates people's loyalty to staying.

Look elsewhere if you are a person of colour!!
Lots of lip service on inclusion and diversity when you are being hired! As long as you don’t expect a warm and welcoming work environment, you should be good! Have heard about ex-employees struggling to “fit-in” and leaving eventually! If you think it can’t be that bad, you’re in for a surprise!! Survival lesson: just do your hours and get the pay check. Have a tough skin not to allow any of this to get to you!There are some coworkers who are nice (can’t say the same for the “ladies who have been at the hospital forever”) The only good thing is the satisfaction you get from helping patients!
RN in 4 west/east

Absolutely terrible
Where to start?I have worked at GGH for 6 years as an RN on medicine, maybe the worst 6 years of work of my life.The colleagues are wonderful but that’s where it stops. There is little to no support from the management who have never actually worked a day on a medical unit, the same can be said for the educators of the program as well. How can one look up to management or take advice from an educator who has never actually set foot on a medical unit? There is such a disconnect between front line staff and the “clacky shoes” it is unbearable. Do not think that doing your job well, taking extra courses or post graduate work will lead to any kind of career advancement. Unless you are in the “old girls club” you will not stand a chance. Non union positions are filled before the jobs are posted and there always seems to be a new non union position created for those the “clacky shoes” like or are related to. What was once an amazing place to work surrounded by wonderfully supportive staff has become simply a place to work. The support is no longer there. The money is all that seems to matter to management. Staff turnover is astronomical as a result. We are told turnover is high as medicine is a place people like to start their career, this was never the case in the past as staff worked medicine for 20+ years and retired happy on that unit until the new management arrived. Now it’s a different world with no senior staff, new staff with zero experience being in charge, educators with less than 6months of nursing experience, management who just seem to be there, more management and non union positions now than ever before in a time when “there is no money for front line staff.” As a former staff member I advise family and friends that Groves might be the better option for care. I was once proud to be a member of the GGH team and it saddens me to say that now I would not even recommend the hospital. Well done GGH management! For the staff who are still there, I feel for you. For me, leaving was the best part of that position!
