Three stars for front line staff, 0 for management.

The work itself is what you would expect. Fun sometimes. Most of the frontline staff are great to work with and culture can vary. The higher you go up in the management ladder, the more incompetent leadership becomes. People who have obviously never worked bedside and are only there to keep the numbers will make bizarre and sometimes dangerous decisions without actually consulting with bedside staff. I would never send friends or family here as patients or staff

Acute and Fast Pace Environment

RCH Perinatal is an acute and fast pace environment. Requires critical thinking and skills to implement a plan of care for mom and baby. It is a safe and joyful environment. Staff and management are exceptional when it comes to support and guidance

Disorganized, overworked, poorly compensated for this city

Not used appropriately for our training, uncooperative and aggressive team members, poor support from management and the union. Working in different areas is a plus, however, mostly as an equipment lackey. Very prevalent blame culture for an inadequate clinical structure. very little in terms of progress. Race and gender, and not merit determine how you progress.

Busy and unfriendly staff

this hospital is the a very busy hospital, that's why staff put their responsibility on top of other shoulders. there is neither education nor information updating. Promotion in this hospital is based on your connection not on your knowledge.The connection should be someone from high level of management.

great place to work. good teamwork. good management. It is under Fraser Health so it offers great benefits. I would recommend it to all people looking for nursing jobs.

Acute Medical Unit

For your own sanity and health, do NOT accept a job here. High patient acuity coupled with an insensitive, poor management does not produce a good outcome. Nurses are expected to work unpaid overtime, work through breaks and work 12-hour shifts on top of it all.Each RN takes 5-7 high-acuity patients. The nursing model is primary nursing and there is ONE care aide for 35 patients - you will not be able to give essential care required and if you're any kind of a decent nurse, this alone will destroy you. Benefits are good, but not worth giving your life for. You were warned!

grerat place to work

The job consisted of inventorying nursing stations and operating rooms in the morning, and delivering the previous days orders in the afternoon, you were left alone to get your job done, a really good and supportive staff and management team
