Did a co-op placement here in high school great place to start working with seniors, the team leaders/managers are really nice and you work with a bunch of other people so its a great chance to meet other people interested in the same field however, as a volunteer you aren't given a lot of responsibilities or overly important duties, so not a great learning experience, just a general view into the daily workings of a geriatrics ward
great starting experience in geriatrics
not given much responsibilities
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
keeps the nurse on her/his toes
I live in Hamilton so the commute is tiring
Learned mostly the products and services how a hospital purchase and provide, charge the bills. There is ongoing learning and development. It is a friendly and welcoming environment.
Paid leaves for remembrance and Easter Monday
Learned a lot, management exposed to leadership discussions, information was shared and accessible. Unfortunately, reports did not match data source and stole a lot of time from analysis. This drove lots of unpaid overtime, the day was extremely tiring, did not have a chance to recover for the next day, no time for any personal outings or plans.
overtime is nnormal work schedule
During my time at St. Joseph's Healthcare I made quite a few advancements in my career and they provided a great balance between work life and personal life. The staff of professionals within the core lab were like family to me, always very friendly and teamwork oriented. They were always creating events to bring the staff together outside of work, were very social, and worked extremely well together day in and day out. For my very first job in my health care career, this facility and the people within it made a lasting impression on my heart and my decision to work in this field.
In simplest terms..if you don't suck up, you aren't going anywhere within the department or hospital setting, Management is clueless and delusional. Everybody thinks that they are the boss. Therefore, no communication is ever made and redundant mistakes always keep happening. It is pretty ridiculous what staff can get away with there. There is no control of the department. Period. The only bright side, I was always praised by nurses for my hard work, and for correcting other staff members mistakes.
lack of teamwork, favoritism, mentally and emotionally stressful as a result of poor management team

Jobs at Unity Health Toronto
I was able to learn most of my EVS experiences there. It is one of the busiest hospitals in all of North America and the busiest in Canada. It is a downtown Toronto Trauma Center where there is an operating type room in the ER department. There is a Heli pad as well as Trauma room that can handle two patients at once. It has an I.C.U. for new born babies and is one of the leading hospitals in the country.
Never a dull moment will help you learn
Never a dull moment you never know what you will encounter
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
Great nursing staff and allied health, community
Long hours, never leave on time
