Great place to work: if you want to be bullied to suicide
drug and alcohol counsellor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 13 April 2018
Vanccouver Coastal Health excels in bullying its front line staff and promoting and overpaid bullying human resources, corporate staff, and managers. They even give anti-bullying merit awards to bullies in positions of power who have bullied staff to the point of permanent injury. And then, if you file a a bullying and harassment claim, Vancouver Coastal Health will collude with WorkSafe to actually accelerate the bullying.
If you ARE a bully, you will be highly successful, promoted, and awarded in this environment.
some of the benefits, but you will be worked to near death, so you don't have a chance to use them.
VCH is a great place to work. It is a team environment and there is always support available.
Clerical Support Clerk (MOA) (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 1 April 2018
I love working for VCH. It is a great environment. It is very supportive of all of it's employees. I work in the downtown eastside community and awareness, safety and compassion are always important issues.
Employee Engagement (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 14 March 2018
I really enjoy working and collaborating with my co-workers on a daily basis. Although VCH is a large organization, our office still maintains a small community feel, which makes coming to more enjoyable! VCH promotes a great work-life balance and provides awesome benefits :)
Medical Device Reprocessing Technician (Current Employee) – Squamish, BC – 18 January 2018
My typical day at work include checking the slate for what lies ahead for my to organize my time. As the only person in my department I'm responsible for decom, sorting, wrapping, sterilizing and putting away. I've worked part-time for 6 years. Most days are very routine, being in a smaller hospital there's a relationship with the whole team. My family is looking to move to the Pentiction area in a few months.
Senior Administrative Secretary (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 11 January 2018
Excellent pay, benefits and people that you work with. At certain times it can get very busy so it is important to stay very organized. The hardest part of the job is can get very demanding as we enter the healthcare environment to help, and one learns that it is a team effort.
Employed Student Nurse (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 31 December 2017
The mixed acuity unit has a very supportive work culture. Resources are readily available. I take on 75% of a nursing workload and complete tasks such as assessments, documentation, medication administration, development of care plans, and collaborating with other members of the health care team to meet the patient's needs.
Advisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 1 December 2017
Issues with organization culture, I'd almost go so far as to say toxic. Huge disconnect between directors and management and the front line staff. Healthcare is hard, there is not a lot of spare money or time, but improved leadership and management could help make the most of what is available.
Office Assistant (Current Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – 26 October 2017
very busy offices I definitely have learned to multitask as management believes one person can perform duties that would normal take two people. Workplace can be negative as management is unable to deal with staffing issues adequately. Met a few great staff members Dealing with the public.
Working conditions are such that there are not enough staff members assigned for planned work-load (elective surgeries). For example inadequate personnel are assigned when executing procedures such as a complex case where nursing support needs to be provided for anesthesia as well as for the surgical team performing surgery (elective or emergent). There is one anesthesia assistant available on day shift and one for partial coverage during the evening shift. This coverage does help nurses and anesthesia but does not adequately provide coverage on an elective surgery day when there are two or more acute surgeries commencing simultaneously. Educational opportunities are provided and some funds are available for studies off the hospital campus. Staff are encouraged to participate in team-building activities when off-duty and these are successful events with very spirited involvement by the nurses working in surgical services. Personnel are assigned to specialty services according to their skills and interests. Individuals may ask for assignments where they may expand their skills and knowledge according to their educational needs. All of the Clinical Resource Team Leaders are very capable of supplying support for those who wish to expand their ability to perform scrub and circulating roles. Strong support is provided for these efforts by the OR Educator. The OR itself is a dynamic and challenging environment suited to those who wish to test their learning abilities and stamina. However leadership roles from amongst the "ranks" should be encouraged. Other thanmore... the extra responsibility of charge duties on the week-ends, evening and night shifts there is no opportunity or incentive to take on this onerous task which is not adequately compensated in monetary terms when comparing the work-load and degree of stress involved.less
Excellent peer support and rapport.
Inadequate staff assigned to execute planned work-loads.
