Primary Care Paramedic (Former Employee) – Grenfell health – 27 February 2018
Paramedics are managed by Rn nursing management so as a result management not realize the challenges the medics having in street for an example it is hospital based paramedic so required to stationed in hospital for 12 hours (called actual working hours) and required to do the ambulance duties and then hospital related duties as helping to nurse in ER , triaging Pts, registering the pts , even clerical works then right after that requires to be on call for next 12 hours (called standby time medics can stay home) at that time if any calls came in medics expected to respond with in 10 mins if no calls came in then which is considered as rest time .
So based on this what I am trying to say is, Paramedic jobs is working in the field not in the facility, doing clerical things, security duties and working under the nurses. That is degrading the paramedic position. Nurses,clarks ,maintenance,securities are doing their job excellent in Emergency department and other facilities but comparing the Paramedics and Nurses is like comparing apples and oranges.
As a result end of the day Paramedics going to burnt out,depressed and will quit the job. Because of poor management rules against paramedic.
Supportive nurses, coworkers and other staffs
Very poor management doesn't consider about employees needs, over worked, staffs might be mandated to take overtime against their will. exhausted
Staff (Former Employee) – Goose Bay, NL – 23 June 2017
over worked, pay is far below Canadian average but lack of accommodations and over priced accommodations when you can find one. Poor attitude of employer to new staff and old. not understanding at all. no encouragement, no team work, back biting and managers are petty and never around when you need them.
an amazing place to work filled with incredible people

Psychiatric Nurse 1 (Community) (Former Employee) – Labrador City, NL – 14 April 2013
The professional, supportive, fun, knowledgeable staff made you feel a part of a family. Everyone was kind and non-judgemental and anti-stigma was one of the foundations of our department. We had a very active and invoved manager and our regional director was always approachable and accessible. I learned so much about truley caring for clients and helping them through difficult life situations, as well as supporting those with long term complex mental health needs to maintain themselves in the community.

Similar working conditions and experiences as with my current emplyer. However, I arranged medi-vacs to Newfoundland via air transport, accompany them and then return to the coastal community to continue my work.
