Student Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 14 August 2018
staff is very accommodating and helpful, work is usually either very intense depending on the day or more mild based on patient conditions. I have learned a lot as a clinical student and would not hesitate to work there if an opportunity arises.
Not a bad place to work as long as you have thick skin!
Don't care to share (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 21 April 2018
Short staffed and over worked. Bullying, harassment and intimidation is rampant from management towards staff. Each year the CEO gets a raise equivalent to an employees annual income yet fights not to give staff anything. If you are strong willed and have a backbone then you will be alright here.

Pharmacist Associate (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 20 April 2017
Working at Windsor Regional hospital was great. A typical day at the pharmacy was counting pills and filling prescriptions. I have learned a lot from the people I worked with and they were absolutely the best teachers. I loved that I got to be independent and the they trusted me. There was not anything hard about this job, just simply had to pay attention to detail.

Nursing Student Placement (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – 22 June 2016
At the Windsor Regional Hospital, I was given a variety of patients with different diagnoses and different backgrounds. Even if I had two patients with the same diagnosis, the two patients themselves would have different stories and different backgrounds. I learned from each patient and they had made me a better student, and I know that I will keep what I had learned from them and constantly remind myself that the learning never ends.
At the WRH I learned how to manage my time, with documentation, contact the interdisciplinary team, do morning rounds, delegate tasks if needed, ask for help, and advocate for my patients.
My co-workers were always willing to lend a hand, and knew that I would be willing to give one as well, as they trusted me with responsibilities and asked for information regarding patients when the shift changed.
The hardest part of my job was having a full schedule then coming home to study for an exam and doing some assignments. The most enjoyable part of the job was being apart of the patient's recovery journey.
Patient Representative (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 9 May 2016
My typical day at work starts with early morning case reviews to examine the care delivered and look for opportunities for quality improvement. The quality improvement initiatives are shared with the families and patients. I am involved in conflict resolution and discharge planning for complicated discharge patient and family issues. I advocate for patient rights with staff physicians and nurses and assist the patient in navigating our health care system. The most difficult part of this role is the volume of complaints. You have to learn to deal with the issues and not take it personally. The most enjoyable is the team I work with and seeing positive changes to our health care system come from a negative patient experience.
Cashier and Customer Service (Former Employee) – 1030, Ouellette Ave. – 28 April 2016
