Unsafe. Management unsupportive
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  Whitby, ON16 January 2019
With so called “recovery rounds” (which is really a collection of non front line managers including managers who have never even worked in health care and have zero background) pressuring and at times forcing the staff caring for individuals to discontinue seclusion or restraints when it is against the nurses clinical judgement it has become increasingly unsafe. When staff are assaulted by patients they are told not to call the police and have to continue to care for the individual who has just hit them. Can you imagine any other workplace where that would be acceptable? When you are assaulted management could care less. There are no rules for patients anymore and this has fostered a culture of entitlement. There are no consequences for individuals who assault staff or other patients. Just because someone has a mental illness does not mean they are violent, however when someone who has a mental illness is violent it shouldn’t automatically be assumed that they were violent because of their illness. Ontario Shores needs to adopt Zero Tolerance when it comes to violence. Too many staff are being hurt physically and psychological ... and when we are unwell it is not fair to our patients.
Pros
Beautiful Location. Front line staff genuinely care about patients and recovery.
Cons
Unsupportive and inconsistent managers. Favouritism. Nepotism.
