Respectful and supportive work environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
As a volunteer navigator, I would help patients and visitors with general inquiries and way-finding. This includes escorting visitors to various locations throughout the hospital or giving instructions on how to navigate the hospital. The management is very accommodating of scheduling difficulties and will allow you to take time off if adequate prior notice is given.

Long hours, poor benefits, poor salary

I work nonstop most days, on my feet most of the time, poor salary with poor benefits with no room for growth, slow turn around time in regards to overtime pay. Management often disregards you when you need assistance

Very slow paced and lazy place of work

I was not monitored with any tasks that I was completing even though I was only a summer intern. The workers were nice and thoughtful however it was obvious that they did not care about what i was doing.

Great

The job is busy always but fun to help others in need. The area of work my co workers are like family. Looking out for one another. The work load is much in some areas. But I like the challenges as opportunity.

Volunteer in Clinical Trials Pharmacy

Volunteered. Very friendly staff. Thoroughly trained. Old pharmacy but sufficient work space. Flexible hours was a big plus. Worked 2-3 hour shifts on average once per week.

Great learning experience

but only up until the end of 1st year. Expected to work over time by management. Management is a joke. Departments are stuck in office politics. Physicians are great though and focused on finding better alternatives for patients

Sedentary hours

Great institution and good learning environment

Princess Margaret Hospital is a tertiary institution where both Nursing and Medical students are trained therefore it is good learning center. Moreover, being the largest healthcare institution in the Bahamas, all types of patients are seen and cared for in this hospital. What I enjoyed most was my relationship with colleagues and some of these have developed to personal friendship that could last a lifetime On a typical day, most wards are busy with an average of 15 patients but staffing is a challenge leaving room for lots of overtime.

Pros

Paid vacation

Cons

Low staff retention rate

Typical Day

It was good. I got to interact with many patients and I learned new things on every shift. The volunteering manager was very kind and lenient with me and my school schedule.
