Staffing nightmare, archaic charting

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Always short staffed and still using paper charting. Staff are always getting to units that they don’t usually work on, even though there’s a float team.

Management is distant and unsupportive

Job itself was easy. Management were not always available and they didn’t always care about the staff. There are many ongoing adds for people to apply for housekeeper. The problem is the management. They can’t keep staff very long because management is distant and unsupportive.

No consistency, inconsistent treatment of staff, not client- oriented

To many hands on the pot, no consistency within department, can't figure out how they want to manage things, affects the patients and staff morale in the end

I enjoy working this department. My colleagues are all very supportive and fun to work with!

I’ve worked here for 2 years. I enjoy coming to work each day. We have a great balance of work and fun. Everyone is so good to step in and help each other out.

No work incentive's, and terrible schedules.

There are too many managers and not enough floor staff. They have unrealistic nurse/patient ratios. They are week with their orientations and lack in continued education opportunities. It’s archaic, they still use paper charting and have an incompetent computer system.

Horrible Management Made Work Unnecessarily Stressful

Management was horrible. They do not care about their employees even though the employees are stretched to their limits and stressed 24/7. The turnover rate is nothing like I've seen before, they cannot hold onto people which shows how they treat people. This hospital has the lowest salary for this job out of all the hospitals that i have looked at. The pay is just not enough for the amount of work you are doing and amount of stress you have. However, most of the employees are amazing people who deserve to work somewhere a million times better.

It was mission impossible, terrible experience, tried my best to change and influence the work culture and improve leadership.

I was warned before accepting the job that it was toxic work environment. They were right. Leadership and work culture was the worst I have experienced. Would not recommend working or seeking healthcare there.


It pays the bills

Poor management, shift work

You get shifted around different departments and it takes forever to get full time employment. Great people and meaningful work but management isn’t the greatest.

We are chronically understaffed. However, the staff are wonderful and the right team can make your long day just a bit brighter. A good place to start your nursing career.


Pick up lots of shifts

Policy centred care

Poor communication, judgemental attitudes and lack of recognition/respect for all team members, patients and families. Top heavy leaders “without time” to address serious safety concerns.


Union wages


Unsupportive leadership

difficult work environment

A difficult work environment with disconnect between bedside and leadership, leading to patient safety and staff safety challenges. Challenging workplace culture.

This was a short term position with no interview or no training.

I was very disappointed with how my employment was handled. I was expected to know a program that I never used before and made them fully aware of this. I had no desk or place to work from daily (jumped around from desk to desk with people that were away at the time). Had no phone, but yet had to call for quotes, assistance from wherever I was sitting that day. I'm sure this was probably an isolated incident and that different departments would have treated me differently.

Good place to work as a college student. Most often, you will have a higher chance at getting hire on there if you complete consolidation within their facility.

Productive and spoke to great people

A typical day for me involves learning to manage shifts without supervision as well as opening and closing the cafe. I learned the work culture and how to supervise the cafe, serve customers and stock amenities at the same time. I had a great time making friends at the cafe and it was great first job for me.

Great Employer

Great place to be able to expand your job opportunities. Team player environment. Managers always willing to work with employees to allow changes with schedule to accommodate any upcoming conflicts. Great pay and pension opportunities.

Did not enjoy working with staff

This hospital was not great when I worked there, the two hospitals were merging at the time so staff in a foul mood. Hopefully work environment is better now.

Lacking room for advancement

Poor morale....often hear staff openly complaining about work environment and management. Policies on sick days before or after long weekend were very discouraging especially if attendance was exceptional for remainder of the year.


Very little room for advancement, tends to hire from outside rather than providing advancement opportunities for current staff

too top heavy

this hospital is very top heavy, they keep hiring managers and directors etc, but forget about the front line staff. the ER staff are wonderful and deserve huge recognition for what they do


they are changing VERY slowly

Placment Student

As I have just recently started my student placement at Pembroke Regional Hospital, I do not feel educated enough about their organization. However, what I have experienced so far is easy going staff who are willing to teach and answer questions.
