CCA (Current Employee) –  Halifax, NS10 October 2019
Not a good place to work at, at all. Management is a joke. They feel like they can do whatever they want. Co workers are not nice either... they report .

High Turnover
Worked in various departments. (Former Employee) –  Eastern Passage, NS26 August 2019
The working staff (not management) are terrific, hard working people.

I had heard before accepting a job there, that there is a very high turn over. Hard working, staff get fired all the time. I have never worked anywhere, that has such a high turnover rate. Managers certainly don't lose sleep over firing people, very disheartening to see so many coworkers (nursing, administrative & kitchen) let go.

No job is secure at Oceanview.

Very heavy workload
LPN full time (Former Employee) –  Eastern Passage, NS22 September 2018
LPN’s there are over worked. The work load is very heavy, med pass to 42 residents is a lot for one LPN. Their clinical leaders work around the building doing nothing to help the LPN’s . They are unable keep LPN’s there due to lack of collaraborative effort. Very poor management, always coming up different policy that is not achievable. Very low wage, the amount of work there is very unbelievable. People quit all the time, they hire new staff every month. They should ask the staff that are living why they are living and find a way to attract people to stay. Increase the LPN wages is $4.00 lower than anywhere else. Don’t wait because the good staffs will live.
Pros
Very close by
Cons
Low wage

Some challenges with maintaining some management staff during my time there. That been said, I still felt supported by existing management staff. I would consider returning, in the future.

not bad
Continuing Care Assistant (Former Employee) –  Eastern Passage, NS22 November 2017
Very clean, fast paced and busy. Typical day would be getting residents ready for the day, feeding 3 meals in a 12 hour shift, providing personal care. etc. Mostly friendly staff, good management. Decorated nicely.

Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Eastern Passage, NS7 March 2017
Just like any place of employment Oceanview has it's good and bad. Everything is only as good or bad as you make or let it be. Depending on your role your daily responsibility can vary. For some their day is specific to resident care to others it is resident care plus much much more.
Pros
Free Parking, bus stop at front of building
Cons
workplace politics, short staffing
