productive and can be a nice place depending on the area you work in

there is a work culture at SMH. It's basically a healthcare facility, therefore, it is complex and fast-paced. If you want to move up it can be difficult depending on many social and institutional factors.

Employee experience

Very mixed culture. Everyone is approachable, its ok to ask questions, great teamwork. I worked in many units in the hospital and enjoyed my time at each one.

unfortunately not a very dynamic place to work these days

A typical work day the majority of the time is short staffed. My current work area is just getting over a crisis with the previous manager of the area. She has been removed and a new Manager has taken over. The hardest part of the job is to work hard and feel that it has not been recognized. The most enjoyable part of the job is to work with supportive co-workers and to work as a team

Pros

the hospital has good compassionate staff in the religious support

Cons

very long hrs. caring for chronic patients

Fast paced and high turn around caring for patients in the ED

Nurses collaborate with the multi-disciplinary team to care for patient's of all ages in an acute setting. Patients in the Emergency Department at St. Joe's Toronto come from all ethnical backgrounds

Pros

keeps the nurse on her/his toes

Cons

I live in Hamilton so the commute is tiring

Lack of staffing and overcapacity

Since management has changed over the last year lots of changes have been made to unit. It is a physically heavy unit and stressful. The ratio is 5 patients up to 6 on days, and 6 up to 7 on nights with 1 psw for both shifts. The census can range from 25 to 32 patients depending on overcapacity protocol in ER The staff works well as a team, however due to the stressful environment of the unit there is a high turnover in staff. It does not help that the management is not supportive of staff and has made changes to scheduling affecting work life balance

Pros

Great nursing staff and allied health, community

Cons

Long hours, never leave on time

Good community hospital

Work with great nursesl. Doctors are respectful of nurses that work in the ICU. Only complaint I have is the patient workload that they demand we now take due to budget deficits.

Pros

Co-workers are great

Cons

High patient acuity due to budget

Community experience

Great community sensibility but major staffing and management issues. Due to low income area, emergency is always packed. Building is due for many renovations and upgrades. Overall, good experience but highly do not recommend for personal long term satisfaction

Cons

Understaffing, and management issues

Good place to work

Providence overall is an excellent place to work where there is lots of learning opportunities and fortifying nursing skills. On the down side, job security and advancement is difficult.

Nurse at Rehab Floor

I was responsible for 5-7 patients, which included providing daily care, medications, overall assessments, transcribing medications. I have learnt how to work in a team setting. Co-workers were a team. We always helped each other in difficult situations The hardest part of the job was it was part-time. Thus, it was very difficult to know clients as per nurse-client relationship. the enjoyable part of the job is that we all worked as a team. so even in stressful circumstances, i did not find it stressful, because there was always co-workers and manager to guide and help me

Pros

pot luck lunches

Cons

part time
