Caring Allied Health Professionals and Wonderful clients
Allied Health (Former Employee) – Ottawa – 29 April 2018
The hospital has high demands on allied health to carry high case load, see as many clients as possible each day with little time for administration, professional development, and to close files up before client is able to be discharged to community based services (outpatient programs). Management and upper echelons are very disconnected from the realities affecting allied health, management objectives are not congruent with realities of needs of clients. Allied health colleagues are very dedicated to well being of clients.

Environmental Service Associate (House-Keeping) (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 5 February 2014
I enjoy my job at the Royal Ottawa, find the staff and co-workers "for the most part " easy to get along with , it defiantly feels like a team environment. I find our new boss fair and very understanding , although I have heard that many bosses come and go from the Royal and im unsure about the stability of my position. Being part-time means I am only garenteed every second weekend and for this reason I need to find a second job
R.N. - Substance Use and Concurrent Disorders Unit (Former Employee) – Ottawa – 1 November 2013
I worked with mental health patients so the company gave seminars on safety often to help avoid incidences as much as possible. There were a lot of safety measures in place such as wearing a device that, if you pressed it when in trouble, an immediate alarm would sound at switchboard and an announcement over the intercom would tell everyone where to respond so lots of people came running to your aid. We also got CPR training, back safety, crash cart knowledge etc. I worked on the Substance Use floor so it was rewarding to see people go through being sober for 1 week, 1 month, 1 year etc. and returning to give me a hug and thank me for helping them. I had trouble with one co-worker only as she wanted to be the boss on every shift and when I asked her why, she didn't really have an answer so management got involved and she flew off the handle and refused to work with me.
nice building and co-workers were helpful
some patients could be combative (not their fault)
