Medical Secretary in Nova Scotia

Teamwork makes the dream work.
The staff is very respectful of each other and willing to assist no matter the profession. Everyone assists each other and make the patients feel welcomed and special. I do work with a good medical professional team.

Toxic environment
A toxic work environment that affected my work performance. People arguing all the time and not acting professionally. Would not recommend them at all. Management were appalling.

Great place to work.
Nsha has good pay, a good union, great people and great lunch breaks. A typical day is around 10 hours of handing out masks, asking people to sanitize thier hands and directing people to thier destination.

CTA Viewing on NSHA and It's Culture
Working for Nova Scotia Health does have it's benefits and disadvantages. A typical day can be a 12 hour shift, which consists of patient care, vitals, and other delegated tasks. Some times things change quickly and you need to be able to adapt to these changes quickly. Depending on your unit you can do various jobs according to the employer policies and what management tells you. Know your scope of practice well and know what can be delegated to you. Management can be difficult and they show they have favorites, and believe me they will listen to the employees who have been there for years compared to new hires. There is a lack of communication and respect between CTA's and RN's and they will prove that they are much more important then you are. Culture wise it is mostly white dominated and very little representation is shown and apparent. The hardest part is knowing you are overlooked for everything, always make sure everything is done in a timely manner. The most important part of the job is getting documentation done correctly and quickly before rounds are completed. Otherwise the place is not horrible, just needs some work and respect needs to given to everyone.
RN in Halifax, NS
on 30 April 2021
Mobility between units/specialty areas
Bad place to work for if you are foreign-trained RN. Does not recognize RN experience outside Canada. Deplorable. Generally, Nova Scotians are nice. Pen and paper charting.
