Lion's Gate Hospital is like a small community, and each department often overlaps or provides for work and personal interaction. Hospital much like a TEAM overall. Hiring practices are fair and ask appropriate questions for the position.
Was very proud of the fundraising created by and with volunteers to assist with funding such as additional equipment, but I was most impressed by the new Psychiatric building (which is now open) and the Mental Health Awareness. Patients First was the slogan and we all worked hard to ensure that motto was actually an activity and not just words.
OR booking team worked very hard. The team was approximately five staff, each with different OR specialties. The job was high paperwork and high demand, and often things changed in a second. We were responsible for ensuring patient medical history, eg. diabetic was included in the form and the EMR. Also, we had to ensure ALL the right specific physician requests for equipment were entered ACCURATELY. We understood although paperwork, peoples lives and quality of lives was directly related to doing our position with due diligence and full accuracy, lest an operation could be compromised.
Essentially, everyone took pride in working hard. The nurses in the OR and the doctors were all professional. My husband attended as a patient on several occasions, and it was reassuring to me to know that Lion's Gate would provide him with excellent care and they did.
I left my position as commuting took 1 1/2 hrs per day back to South East Vancouver and I was offered a full time that was attractive.
