Working at William Osler health system has elevated me professionally. With opportunities for professional growth and development, challenging opportunities in my roles have allowed me to think outside the box with supportive colleagues and leadership. Up to date facility that is always striving to be the best and do the best for their patients, staff and volunteers. There are annual member recognition, weekly educational opportunities, occupational health nurses working hard to update staff on vaccines and ensure they are protected from workplace exposures.
Mediocrity is rewarded and excellence is punished. Middle management use a culture of fear to control and terrorize frontline staff. Lying, bullying and harassment are standard and expected practices within management. Innumerable violations of the Employment Standards Act and Ontario Human Rights Code.
Frontline staff are very friendly but horribly treated by management.
Brampton civic's labour and delivery is the second busiest in the country, affording the nurses opportunities to serve a vast array of populations varying in both ethnicity and acuity. The fast paced environment allows you to gain your independence in your practice, however, there are always nurses around in case of urgent or emergency situations ensuring you never feel alone to manage a crisis on your own. There are always managers and educators that stay in touch with you throughout your training and orientation period to ensure you are at where you need to be to practice safely and independently. The culture on the unit is mostly warm and supportive.
Critical thinking skills are definitely required
Fast pace environment
Organizational skills are a must
Multicultural- many language barriers (resources are necessary)
Work place provides many educational functions
Team work is important
They will not support you. Families complain frequently about unrelated medical issues. Management even allows families to record employees while working. Be very cautious of the floor culture and environment you choose to work in.
Large amount of positions to choose from. Workload is good but sometimes increased with amount of relocation of staff. There are many opportunities for advancement. Management is good but not exceptional lacking in proper distribution of duties equally among staff. Union and non-union positions sometimes become a battle as there is a lot of "bumping" staff due to seniority levels. The Foundation office is well run with many fundraising opportunities. There are many committees that staff can participate in. For the most part, It is a pleasure working at William Osler Hospital.
staff yearly BBQ, fundraising events, vendors in lobby, good pension program
too top heavy with too many managers and directors.
