Do not work on ortho/trauma

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It is so mismanaged on T7 and management is extremely toxic and unsupportive. The patients are acute but that is pretty much the same everywhere. The manager often discredits your feelings and make you feel bad about yourself. do not work here if you can avoid it.

Fun place to work for

Enjoy helping clients with all care, interesting life experiences from them. Management easy to talk to, co-workers working as a team. Hardest part of my job is, leaving my job, as I am relocating in Chilliwack BC. The most rewarding part of my job is leaving with client happy,content and safe in their home.

Staffing Clerk

Very busy, and constantly changing as often you don't have enough staff to fill shifts. Learned that you need to be adaptable and flexible in an ever changing minute by minute day. Co-workers often are a great source of information, and working together for the common goal is what I liked the most.

Pros

great team members

Cons

management can sometimes be a challenge

Preventing underage tobacco sales while having a great time doing so

Going into corner stores, asking to buy cigarettes. If they sell, they get a warning and then a fine. Fun job that pays well

Enjoyed the opportunity to expand in my knowledge and experience.

My job was all about multitasking various duties, such as printing needed materials, answering the phone/redirecting calls, answering colleagues' questions, setting up groups (booking rooms, confirming attendance with clients, preparing manuals and CD's for use within group, keeping Excel waitlist up-to-date), scoring and entering self-report measures in computer program, running reports and collecting stats. I also took meeting minutes, as well as maintained supplies and kept electronics in working order. Not to be overlooked is that I trained the new secretary in her position in the psychiatry clinics. I provided support with client appointments, etc. and transcription. I actually enjoyed the adrenaline rush (if I may put it this way) that came from accomplishing various duties and being productive. I specifically enjoyed learning and applying desktop publishing skills, used to prepare manuals and working with Excel spreadsheets. Unfortunately, I found management personnel to have a high turnover rate. On the one hand, I missed certain individuals that left; on the other hand, I enjoyed sharing information in order to bring new ones up to speed on my work duties and program procedures. I enjoyed working many years with certain ones of my colleagues. What I found to be the hardest part of my job was the sometimes unpleasant work atmosphere that arose from communication difficulties between some of my colleagues. I personally enjoyed a good work relationship with each of them though. I truly loved my job and would never have left! But I eventually found myself alone in -

Satisfying daily and providing nursing care I feel very important for patients

My days when I was working full time have not always been typical, unexpected changes and high risk patients that all the nurses need to mentally and physically be prepared for. Management provides and sets high nursing bars and some provided a role model. My co-workers were always a pleasure working with and I enjoyed their new ideas to make the future to look forward to. I learned a lot of understanding in my leadership position as a Patient Service Coordinator toward my nursing staff and showed them the importance of their capability and leadership also to new staff. At the end of my day I go home feeling I have had I very valuable contribution to our patients, that have trusted us to provide the care they needed.

Offer Good part-time positions and a casual, yet professional work environment

Overall, a good experience and will be difficult to work outside of this Health Authority. Excellent co-workers, very professional and knowledgeable in their field of Home Care. Unfortunately continuing education is becoming more difficult to be approved time for and management over the years has become more and more disconnected from the realities of providing nursing care in a community setting. Staffing shortages and unreasonable workloads have become an ongoing issue.

Pros

Great co-workers, strong collaborative team environment

Cons

Short-staffing and unsafe workloads

Overall a good place to work

This is a union environment so the work day is highly controlled. For the most part the staff and management work well together.I would not consider the job hard but has it moments that are satisfying on a personal level. Quite often this comes from being able to be a part of a team of people that work toward making peoples stay in the hospital as relaxing as possible.

Typical Union environment

Management should be assessed yearly from other team members as most take advantage of the great benefits and I think we were overpaid for the work that we put in.
