Registered Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – London, ON – 9 February 2017
Obstetrics working with moms both antenatal and postpartum. Vital signs and monitoring of any changes to their situation. Teaching of baby care and ensuring comfort with baby handling. Ensuring all information required is given to mom. Working in the over night nursery feeding and changing infant or taking them to mothers for breastfeeding. Establishing proper latching and comfort for both. We worked as a team and completing tasks required together or independently to ensure work was completed. I loved working with the patients and putting them at ease, knowing that they would be going home with good knowledge base. The hardest part was the 12 hour shifts at night.

registered nurse (Current Employee) – London, ON – 21 January 2016
Working as an RN in the NICU allows me to use comprehensive nursing knowledge and hands on skills, and to also touch on the human side of nursing while helping families through their often difficult experience. The most enjoyable part of my job is watching infants born prematurely as they journey through weeks, and often months in the NICU, finally reaching the day they get to go home. It is the ultimate balance between highly advanced technology, and human compassion and caring.
Switch Board Operator (Current Employee) – London, ON – 7 January 2016
A typical day while working switchboard at Victoria Hospital would consist of signing into our phones and going into the cue. When a call comes through to help the person out on the other end whether it be to transfer them or to looks something up. I would set up pagers for the doctors and the residents as well. On a daily basis I learn new things as when you answer the calls they are always so different from the next. The management in this department are excellent people and great to work with. The co-workers are very professional and are willing to help out. The hardest part of the job would be learning all the lines and codes as they change often. The most enjoyable part is helping people out and directing them in the right directions.
