Clear communication

Toxic workplace

Unrealistic workload & culture of bullying is prevalent. Hard work is punished by supervisors who add more workload on to nurses who are highly productive

Busy and rewarding

I like the people I work with. Management is great. Pay could be better for the volume of work you have,but what's new. I find it rewarding to provide service to patients, even if a friendly helpful face can ease their anxiety - that is a nice reward.

Great team to work with

Has thus far been a rewarding choice to work for Vancouver Coastal Health, not only have I learned a lot I find the work load to be reasonable as well. We have a great team with positive attitudes and there proves to be opportunities to educate ourselves every day.


The hours of my position are a perfect fit to my schedule.

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.


Excellent co workers


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.

interesting place

LGH is an interesting place to work for, my supervisors are absolutely amazing and the physicians that I worked for, incredible. The hospital focuses on patient, nurses and practitioners but not much for their admin staff.

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.


We have to work evenings and weekends.


Free parking is over 1km away.
