Some great staff and coworkers. Management not so much.

I worked for Vancouver coastal for 35 yrs. Management comes and goes. Many long time management were treated poorly as well as.On a positive note there was much more atonomy for staff nurses to go about their work with out being followed by superiors micromanaging. Senior staff are often treated poorly and many retired early as a result. Working with some fantastic staff made things better.

Pros

Excellent co workers

Cons

Chronic fatigue and turnover. Of staff

Toxic Workplace

Too much favoritism, too much stabbing of the back, too much politics, too much incompetent, to much laziness, sucking up is the norm. If you are incompetent and lazy but you are a master of sucking up, you'd be favoured and get away with everything, you can screw up million times, you are still be best employee. Kudos to incompetent Managers, they thrive in Vancouver Coastal Health.

Stressful enviornment

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.

Pros

Pension

Cons

Stressful work environment

Good Job poor management

Scheduling visits for chw's (psw's) to visit clients in their homes. Filling sick calls and vacation requests. Ensuring chw's get paid properly and coding hours. Adjust visit times with multiple considerations. Including Client preferences, client needs such as time specific medication, over-time, minimum daily hours for chw's, and avoiding giving chw's split shifts. Working with supervisors to determine the best schedule for clients. Helped create a new system to organize client visits more efficiently reducing the total driving distance for chw's and the total number of chw's who visit any one client.

Pros

We have to work evenings and weekends.

Cons

Free parking is over 1km away.
