Poor management

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
During the period when covid was on its peak in mid 2020, I found that the hospital does not care for the nurses. They could have protected the nurses’ well-being by paying for ARTs whenever the nurses come into contact with covid cases within their shift, or even suspected covid cases. Instead, they chose to save the money. Even discussing this with the nurse managers didn’t do anything to improve the situation. They basically told us to fend for ourselves. Also when the doctors are verbally abusive, the management doesn’t do anything about it and force the nurses to suffer in silence.

Funny and lively colleagues work environment

Generally, the company is stable. The type of work is easily within the staff knowledge. The work hour is long due to the company operating hours requirements. The salary and bonus is acceptable The medical and staff benefits are acceptable.

hectic yet fun days at work.

Both of my jobs were a customer service related job. A typical day when i was a part time waitress would depend on how many customers we had. Most of the time it would have required teamwork and good communication with both the customers and my colleagues. The hardest part would be if there was a colleagues who would be refusing to put in the same amount of effort as the other teammates. The most enjoyable would be definitely making new friends and getting the satisfaction when our guests are happy with the service. As for my full time staff nurse job, most of the time it would be a hectic day. I worked at a medical/surgical 6 bedded ward where we would receive all kinds of patients. Over here also requires very important teamwork and good communication with both patients and colleagues including other health care professionals. Through this job i had greatly learnt how to manage my time as well, prioritizing my patients care. Most of my co workers were all very helpful as well. Some days we would be short of staff so we would end up taking more patients or doing extra hours or double shifts as well. the hardest part would be when there was a miscommunication or when there were a couple of admissions which comes in together and we're already busy with other post/pre ops or any other patient care. One of the hardest part for both my jobs would also have been dealing with rude and disrespectful guests/patients. There isnt a need to show appreciation but i dont think anyone should be rude. However.. at the end of the day the satisfaction once again comes from healthy and happy - 

Pros

free meal when i was a waitress. meal and medical discounts when i was a staff nurse.

Cons

coming across rude and disrespectful people.
