The medical and support staff are, for most floors, great. I loved working here. The management is a bit off in terms of creating a productive work environment. Front line management have a huge portfolio. On site training was good but has tapered off .. as it has everywhere.
Collegial team environment (my floor), pay and benefits, educational opportunities
Management favours a punitive approach when dealing with issues. Time off is hard to get.
The most unsafe ER I have ever worked in. Not nurse friendly. Toxic culture. ++admitted patients held for days. constantly, chasing doctors to see or reassess admitted pts. High turnover rate. Nurse:patient ratios not followed and worse when acuity of pts begins to climb. No support of staff. Many grievances over safety, workload, and still no change. Easier in their minds to just get rid of the nurses. Zero support from managers, directors, administrators. Keep their own job, and climb the career ladder. Difficult behaviors amongst pt population and staff paying the price. Save yourself. HR, directors, managers, and clinical office staff cannot be trusted.
Security does their best to assist
treated like you are expendable
Always at bed capacity but staff work well together to provide excellent care to client and families. Front line management poor. Lack of support to staff and poor communication skills. Follows best practise guidelines for consistent, safe care.
lack of beds resulting in back logs
On a regular day I work 12 hours usually. Take patient's vitals, administer medications, transfer patients and assist with toileting etc. Depending on the patient I sometimes monitor IV infusions, catheters, oxygen, feeding tubes, drains, wound care etc.
The ER is ruled by people who exhibit a Grade 9 mentality. Cliques and bullying are prevalent. Unit managers try their best but the number of managers the ER has had in the last 10 years is evidence of the toll it takes on them.
Benefits are OK
Poor workplace morale, lack of Staff Educator and continuing education opertunities.

Registered Nurse positions
I worked full time in the acute care psychiatry unit for many years. I had many positive learning experiences. This is where I found my true passion for mental health and addictions.
Great learning opportunities
frequently short staffed
0700-1500. Proficient in phlebotomy, Blood transfusion, Wound care, assist with vasectomy procedure. Primarily responsible for Chronic disease education Tues-Thurs. Management is versatile and open to communication. Co-workers are highly skilled, team players. Hardest part of current job is when clinics are over-booked requiring fast-efficient quality care for all patients. The most enjoyable part of the job are the patients and being able to teach them something about their health on how to maintain a quality of life to ensure them the ability to remain at home.
I work 12 hour days and nights. I have learnt excellent critical thinking skills and maintained all skills appropriate for Registered Practical Nurses scope of practice. Management could be improved slightly - management politics are at times difficult to manage. Advancement is possible including many opportunities for increased education with in-house education sessions and courses covered by corporation.
12 hour shifts
Night shifts can be difficult
Typical evening shift at my work was to get report on the patients i would be looking after or of the floor if i was in charge I would then take vitals of all my patients assessing their comfort level if they needed any medication for pain Check on any lab work that came back and contact physicians if needed to Prepared the supper medication and did rounds to get patient up that were to get up Checked wound dressings IV or assist younger staff where needed I learned that team work means one has to work has a team when one of your team is struggling you lend a hand I loved working with all my coworkers management as well they were a great team Most enjoyable part of the job well seeing my patients get well or smile or when they say they were glad i was back I whistled i sang and it made the patient less anxious and they would not be afraid to ring the bell.
understanding clinical leader and great staff
stressful when staff was short
