mismanaged toxic workplace, understaffed and overworked
nurse (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 25 January 2019
Here for a few years and staff is overworked, understaffed putting nursing license at risk. Staff about 1/2 is great to work with but most are in same situation and helps as team will help with your workload. Most doctors are great to be with and work with. If you have management issues, discrepancy, bullied or are hurt your useless to them and they document everything in their favor even writing lies. High priced lawyers will do their best to make you give up if you have an issue then you are a target after that. Have a few staff who situation was so stressful they are no longer with us. This comment is accurate on; 25 July 2015 and 21 August 2018 comment reviews accurate. Don't trust most comments as ; "By far the best place I have ever worked - the teamwork is amazing' and " Very young staff currently, always looking for experienced people'??? This sounds like an AD not a review, really a 5? Writer must work an 8000-1600 Monday to Friday shift as most are not even a 4 at best. Upper management is ruthless and heartless and do not care about staff as easily replaced. There is high turnover for a reason Dr's included as we give all and when we need help we are thrown under the bus, just EVIL. This is an accurate representation of the true work environment for at least 2/3 of the staff. I fully expect 5 more comment left after mine averaging 4+ to compensate for the truth of my comments.
Good pension plan, helpful staff, nurses and doctors mostly.
management is terrible and non accountable for their actions putting blame on staff.
