Registered Nurse, Emergency Department (Former Employee) – St. Thomas, ON – 19 February 2019
Worked there for many years they are the fastest ER in Ontario and team work and communication is a huge priority. Physicians that work in the ER have a respect for all trades in the department and know it is crucial to respect one another to obtain an efficient work environment.
multiple ! learn the top expectations a nurse should be
distance was far for me, high acquity, high volumes, may not get breaks
Medical Secretary/Transcriptionist (Former Employee) – St. Thomas, ON – 17 December 2017
Unfortunately STEGH as well as other hospitals in the area downsized and outsourced all transcription employees. Very good at training initially. Able to advance and take on more areas within the department.
Don't allow advancement of RPN skills at work. Poor hours and pay compared to London/Toronto. Great staff and patients.
Registered Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – St. Thomas, ON – 27 November 2017
Hospital registered staff were fantastic, everybody from kitchen staff, custodial staff were all really nice patients, and to each other. Management was not terrific. No drama at the work place, and a really good work environment.
Educated staff, Kitchen to doctoral staff are kind to patients and staff, Patient charts are updated, I regret quitting cause of great patients/staff.
Zero extended skills for RPN's taught, small morgue, Not enough work hours, Bad night shifts, a skeleton crew made bathroom time impossible d/t only 3 staff.
Cleaner (Current Employee) – St. Thomas, ON – 30 November 2016
Every organization has their challenges and STEGH is the same way. It is a great place to work, the people are awesome, the salary/benefits are competitive. You can feel empowered to make change and be part of it without having to go through several layers of management. Management turnover is a concern and that can be frustrating. Overall, I would absolutely recommend STEGH as a place to work.
Cleaner (Current Employee) – St. Thomas, ON – 13 October 2016
Great place to work if you like to be busy. I love interacting with the patients and visitors. Management needs to look at their employees needs more and be more pro-active with the needs of them. There's a lot of micro-managing which causes more tension
PERIOPERATIVE NURSE/OR TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – St. Thomas, ON – 19 April 2016
A welcoming environment, great team atmosphere, excellent patient empathy. Wonderful variety of experienced surgeons, doctors, nurses and volunteers. Could offer more of a cafeteria, as it closes at 3, the people who work 3-11 and midnights aren't able to take advantage of being able to buy lunch there.
Registered Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – St. Thomas, ON – 20 February 2016
A day on the acute medical unit where I currently work is a fast paced environment with constant changes taking place, with admission, discharges, appointments etc. I have learned you must be very organized, set priorities, and be accountable. My co-workers are very helpful and hard working individuals. St. Thomas Elgin General is a small community hospital now presently working on a huge expansion project, which will provide better opportunities for employees and of course continue to provide excellent care.

Managers are hard to deal with, must always have union rep regardless of context of conversation. Co-workers were amazing, couldn't have asked for better people to work with!er nurses can be a challenge to work with at times but usually are a great group of people? All doctors were fantastic, always answered questions! Housekeeping is your best friend... They go above and beyond!! Can be very stressful but well worth it!
Very interesting place to work and I've learned a lot about the hospital process.
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – St. Thomas, ON – 18 September 2015
I has been a huge learning curve learning about the hospital procedures. Every one here is really nice and supportive. I have enjoyed the challenge of learning a new job and I am happy to have this experience. Unfortunately, at this time there is not any room for me to advance to a full time position due to the number of qualified staff with more seniority.
