was fortunate to work on a great unit with a great team
Clinical Lead - Social Work (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 5 September 2018
The Victoria General Hospital along with most of the WRHA has been undergoing tremendous change as the focus has become even more intent on patient "flow" out of hospital. This along with diminishing resources and stringent guidelines and policies has resulted in a particularly challenging time in health care. I left the hospital before significant changes occurred. I can not speak to the situation over the past 2 plus years.
great team, supportive
unrealistic expectations by some of the medical team
Registered nurses (Former Employee) – Intensive care unit – 14 October 2018
I worked mainly in critical care at the Victoria hospital. The work environment became very unsettled and unknown due to the provinces rebranding of the hospitals in the city, to a regional health care system. The critical care area I worked in went from a high acute challenging unit to more of a chronic long term care environment
overall I had a good team to work with hard working coworkers
Hospital Custodian (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 5 June 2018
It has been a few years since I have worked there. Generally I remember having more assistance for example if I was called upon to do a discharge clean in an isolation room I was given a helper which was usually the floor cleaner he would wash all the walls and floors while I washed the bed and furniture and all the equipment in the room so the discharge clean would take half the time.
Registered Nurse (FT-Temp) (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 10 May 2018
Nursing practice is not up to speed there. The culture on the unit I was working on was pretty toxic. Hours/shifts and pay were consistent with union standards. Building is old and the re-circulated air gave me headaches.
This is a place where you can spend your eight hours of work and learn many things at the same time. Staffs are friendly and supportive and also the management. Hospital is a very clean place to work, you are able to interact with other staffs, patients and their family, Doctors and Nurses are friendly and that makes the work very easy and enjoyable.
Health Care Aide (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 21 June 2017
The rating of the job is excellent, the ideal setting for team work place in the area of staff and the environments. Working in this job setting is fun because its what I was trained to do, my passion.
Health Record Technician (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 4 March 2017
Health Records is a highly physical and busy department. There is a vast knowledge to have and learn throughout. The staff for the most part are friendly and easy going which is good to have during a busy and productive day.
Medical Laboratory Assistant/Technician (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 6 December 2016
I start with my day by doing our morning routines taking blood for morning blood works then after that Ill go to my respective area (like emergency dept or out patient)where I will take bllood from patients until afternoon. I learned how to deal with different people/patients especially patients who have different attitudes because of what they are experiencing at the moment they decide to be hopitalize. I am a team player I can also help mu co workers who needs to be relieve for breaks. The most enjoyable part of our work is ending up servicing people who are in need of our help.
