challenging to work with a variety of clients and families ranging from homeless, addicted and predominantly stable rural families and in a variety of settings; i.e. medical clinics, prairie mountain health care facilities, mobile clinics and teen clinics in schools
For anyone looking for a great job and fantastic group of people - this job is for you. I started off as casual. I was concerned casual hours wasn't going to cut it - I needed full time hours - I applied anyway. My way of thinking - I won't get any shifts if I don't apply. It took a couple of weeks for me to get all my required paperwork in order - but once that was sorted - I started orientation (training) within a team environment - different members helped to train me. That was great because this team gets the job done - sometimes just a little differently - as long as the policies are being followed - eg - writing a letter - do you use your right or left hand; or use a keyboard? Either hand and the keyboard will get your letter done!! Once training was complete - I am picking up lots of shifts. Looking forward in working with you - see you on the flip side!!
Day shift, positive & respectful, foot in the door
Long term care LPN (Former Employee) – Neepawa and Minnedosa ltc & hospital – 4 October 2017
I worked at a few places here... I loved Neepawa and Minnedosa hospitals... great doctors. Neepawa Pch is new and beautiful building. Minnedosa Pch is depressing.... I had a full time float between the Hosp and Pch... it was a good gig!
Health Care Aide (Current Employee) – Dauphin, MB – 15 September 2017
Not the greatest place to work. Lots of no shows creates a stressful and dangerous working environment for staff and clients. Lots of turnover in management lots of mismanagement. Too many changes to clients medications. No laundry on weekends.
I really enjoyed my position at PMH. Everyday was different and sometimes a good challenge. It helped me personally come out of my "shell" and not be so shy around people. The hardest part of the job was trying to fill shifts that no employee wanted to work. The most enjoyable part was the Care Team Manager's ongoing support and created a fun atmosphere.
Prairie Families First Home Visitor (Former Employee) – Dauphin, MB – 8 August 2017
Update phone message, review and return phone messages, check in with supervisor or available Registered Nurse
I learned creative ways to engage children and parents in playing games with their babies and siblings.
Recording and observing behaviours of families with young children and assessing their needs and potential risks for those with low socio - economic status.
Dynamic workplace culture and diversity, regular staff meetings and social gatherings to encourage positive work-place morale.
I found extensive paperwork to be the most challenging, but the most rewarding part of the position was seeing families engage their babies in healthy play with the skills they learned through my program.
I loved the dynamic of having office and field work, working with people
Mental health proctor (Current Employee) – Brandon, MB – 16 July 2017
Proctors provide rehabilitative support to a client to develop the skills necessary to achieve his or her goals in the community. This focuses on teaching skills, which can include problem solving, communication, networking, financial management, self-care, leisure time management, job coaching, maintaining housing, and transportation use.
large variety of technology to work with and learn/experience
Information Technology (ICT) Supervisor (Former Employee) – Brandon, MB – 12 July 2017
This is a health care environment so it truly is a 24/7 365 environment. There is a large selection of applications and technology to insure is working as well as possible at all times. A typical work day consists of planned work on the current projects fit around issues that occur and require immediate attention. The atmosphere of the IT dept is enjoyed and humorous while each member does recognize that patient lives could be at risk if they don't do their job. The hardest part to deal with is this is a government funded institution and sometimes there is just not the budget available to achieve some goals in a timely manner if at all. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a dedicated staff that knew their jobs and worked hard to insure the functions they were responsible for performed.
Excellent staff to work with.
budget limitations frequently caused stress in a government funded agency
Supervisor Environmental and laundry department (Former Employee) – Russell Canada – 30 June 2017
dqgelijks schoonmaken van burelen en emergency rooms en alle andere medische lokalen ook alle patienten kamers in het ziekenhuis en het bejaarden tehuis dit alles moest gedaan worden in een bepaalde tijd veel kennis van de producten die er gebruikt werden scheduling van staff zorgen dat alle orders gedaan werden en comunication met hoger managment
Staffing is an issue. Frequently only 1 registered nurse scheduled/responsible for 22 bed acute/emergency room facility, as well as a 60 bed personal care home.Too many waiting placement admissions who require extensive ADL assistance, taking nurses off the floor.
Co-workers are great. Variety of experiences available.
its a good place to work specially if your passion is to care for vulnerable persons or elderly. everybody is nice and respectful. the only hard part I remember is when you can't help them even if you wanted to help them due to policies we have.I enjoy working in cultural environment like PMH has.
Home Care Attendant (Former Employee) – Erickson, MB – 25 January 2017
The job in being a home care attendant can be changed in the area of working two shifts at once by hiring more casual workers. I see a need for hire management to watch the coordinators for nepotism as in smaller facilities this happens often. There is a need for representative to be at each regional area for home care attendant's.
It was a great job to work in as money was good. But being a young adult and working among older woman i was singled out. Ignored. I was written up for nothing. I was driven out by my fellow staff and employer. I was refused orientation in learning to clean a personal care home as my mom was employed there. I was refused training on to become a part time health care aide because of my employment as an environmental services aide which was only term position.
Salary and benefits
Terrible staff, management lacks, bullying in the work place, union does nothing to those who need help
Call center for Application access and issues for a large corperation
Assistant (Current Employee) – Brandon, MB – 16 November 2016
Answer phones Validate issues direct information multiple computer applications
management is on top of things It is a growing and in demand department my office has 4 working assistants with 12 administrators dealing with as many as 20+ applications daily for a employee base of over 7000
The morning begins with a scheduled round of areas and rooms to be cleaned. After lunch the treatment rooms are cleaned. We then follow a schedule of weekly and monthly rooms to be "pulled" and housecleaned from top to bottom. Floors are also stripped and cleaned thoroughly, following a scheduled maintenance. We usually work in groups of 2. I thoroughly enjoy working with co-workers. The most enjoyable part of the work is seeing the results and taking pride in what I have done. The hardest part of the job is also the work. It is very physical labour. To hear the complements of a job well done is worth it though.
