Independent work environment
People in the inventory services department were enjoyable to work with, and the job allowed for a good measure of independence. The only draw back was that sometimes the level of busyness could really vary from day to day.

Friendly environment
A great atmosphere to kick-off a nursing career. A very supportive learning environment, as it is a teaching hospital. Unionized. Can be slightly unorganized, at times.

Not a welcoming environment
They say nurses eat their young and this is true of KGH nurses. Most nurses I worked with here had spent their entire career at KGH and believed the only way to do things was the same way they had been doing it for 20 years. Lots of resistance to change, not very welcoming to people coming in with different backgrounds and experience.

Very fast paced
I enjoy the physicians that I work with; their level of skill is encouraging.
I like that I have contact with the union or HR if needed

I like the response when someone needs additional training

I think working at KHSC is a plus in anyones career

Great place to learn
KGH is a great place to learn as it is the largest healthcare centre between Toronto and Ottawa. Staff are exposed to a variety of different patient populations and great co-workers.

Large hospital
I worked for many years at KGH and did many styles of nursing.. A normal day was 12hours of nursing care within a training hospital.. i learned a great deal over my years.
Management varied

Workplace culture varied

The hardest part of the job was knowing there was not enough community based support to help with discharged individuals

The connection with many co-workers made the job/vocation worth the years
Pros
Supportive staf
Cons
Sometimes the size of hospital interfered with potential

Management and Frontline Staff
Terrible management and front-line staff are treated horribly. If you would like recognition or advancement do not work here. Also, the environment is mostly toxic, with plenty of bullying. An all-round awful place to work.

Wonderful
I had a great experience volunteering here. I enjoyed that I was able to bond with many patients.
A typical day included going to various rooms of patients and asking them and their families if i could help. On the pediatrics floor I played with the children, on the long term care floor I kept company with the patients and helped them eat or with various activities.

Nurse
Has a great reputation.
Foundational for my critical care career progression. Was easy to transition between departments. They also provided staff on site education such as ACLS and 12 lead ECG interpretation.
