I would maintain all gardens and lawns daily. Weed and pest management as well as a fertility program were part of my on going maintenance strategy. Finally we would maintain trees as well. Making sure all plant materials and gardens and lawns were getting proper irrigation needs as well.
Great people environment
Car traffic could be problematic at times but overall everything was a positive environment
Medical Secretary (Former Employee) – Montreal, QC – 24 August 2017
As previously stated I would not recommend working at the RVH at the moment. The financial status of hospitals has forced many job closures and although we have job security (after two years but this may change) a person might end up in a job they do not like; when bumping occurs you do not have much choice in what type of job you can obtain. This is definitely not ideal for productivity and quality of work life.
Consolidation Student (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 27 July 2017
I was working at this Hospital as a full-time Consolidation student, and was going to school part-time. It was tricky to keep up with the hours needed for the program, but I always enjoyed going into work. Staff members were helpful and patient as I learned MediTech and the general pace of the floor I was on. The more I worked here, the better it was and my relationships with not only my colleagues, but patients grew more fulfilling. I knew that when I finished my placement here I was ready for the world of nursing and was excited to see where I would end up next!
scheduled breaks, friendly staff, good training for computer and safety, straight forward duties.
Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 15 June 2017
The Management,Doctors Nurses and the general stall are like one family very good place to work as a matter of fact my third child was born in Royal Victoria hospital I will recommend anyone to visit the hospital and see or make their own opinion
A very on schedule and time sensitive nature of job.I learned from this work envyrement how to program and see ahead the next step and be very responsible. Managing your time and be efficase and productive are the skills that we learn to master in this envyrement. It's physikally challenging but gratifying at the end because you know that you made a difference in the life of the patient.
Strategy Consultant (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 27 March 2017
A lot of people at RVH are afraid of their own shadow and that comes from senior management down. Continuous improvement does not mean that there is something wrong, it just means that it's worthwhile to pursue a course of consistent improvement. Pay and benefits are excellent, but senior management needs to lose the egos and listen to improve the hospital
Surgical Processing Technician (MDRD) (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 10 March 2017
I learned how to ask as many questions as I needed to learn how to process each instrument and trays. I also learned to use the support of my team members to my advantage. We also would joke around with each other to lighten the mood and show our affection towards each other.
Productive and fun place to work allowing the staff to grow.
Registered Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 29 December 2016

Lead Weighted NG Tube Insertion (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 8 March 2016
I started my nursing career at this facility and was provided with the opportunity to get many post graduate courses. My coworkers are some of my best friends to this day. The work was hard as I worked almost every floor in the hospital.
Fun work place with supportive management. During my stage at Royal Victoria Hospital learned about policies, rules, red tape, politics how to communicate and work easier with whole team during the shift. This was the enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my colleges and learning from them.
Environmental Services (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 26 September 2015
A typical day at work involved; punching in at or before 7:50am. Then grab your scurbs and go get changed in dressing room. expected back in man room for the days plans. Then we all went to our designated spots to work. I mostly enjoyed being on a floor with patient rooms, as you got to being some cheer to their day.
RN in palliative care (retired) (Former Employee) – Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal QC – 31 August 2015
In my work as a palliative care nurse, I had the privilege of helping families and patients have what is termed "a good death". I was required to use instinct, intuitiveness, compassion, loving kindness as well as all the medical skills necessary. I worked very well with the physicians on staff, had very good relations with them, and could speak openly about what I felt the patient needed. As nurses are at the bedside for a whole shift, and MD's are there but for a shorter time.
It was an honour to be allowed into the lives of my patients and their family's lives at this difficult time. It was their gift to me.
I am fortunate to have had this experience in my life. But now, I am ready to move on towards other experiences.
