Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) - Toronto, ON
patient visitors should be better monitored. patients are aloud to have as many visitors as they want with no restrictions in the emergency department. there is no organisation with regard to patient visitors. they are not given visitor badges which makes it unsafe when dealing with mental health patients. eg. patient in MHESU can have a visitor and leave without notice if a security officer opens the door, if they were identified as a visitor, staff would feel more confident that they didn't lose a patient. some patients can be easily lost in the system as patients are transferred from area to area with little to no documentation. nurses are required to document transfer of care however a lot of staff neglect to document such. physicians and staff are pretty good at keeping the work place clean and organised however the sharps containers are often filled to the point of safety concerns. it's up to the nurse to change the bins and up to the nurse to stock supplies as there is no one in place to do so(gloves, medication and iv supplies on weekends)
Pros
great staff
Cons
the scheduling is on paper and not well managed
