Avis d'employé sur Alberta Health Services
A versatile workplace to explore and learn about knowledge and skills of Nursing
I mostly work the home care ambulatory clinic, where we provide medications treatment such as antibiotics, hydration, anticoagulants, etc and wound management to the clients. Home care gives me the opportunity to see and treat clients with various diagnosis starting from post-op hospital discharge to seniors. Both community part and ambulatory part of home care require me to perform acute client comprehensive assessment on each and every client. Home care sustains a healthy and friendly environment among the colleagues.

In general, a well organized workplace with numerous opportunities in a variety of nursing fields, lots of lateral mobility to try different areas of nursing and plenty of flexibility for casual, part time, temporary, or full time work. A generally collaborative and team-based environment.
Poor management, hypocrisy and bullying. No chances of advancement even if you more qualified, unless you’re “in good standing” with the manager who is not qualified herself. LPNs are preferred because of lower pay rate, although not competent. If you know the manager, you’ll have perks; if you’ll seek clarification and stand up for yourself, the manager will find a way to make you leave.
AHS is a good employer. The Government has too much say over many aspects of day to day work but that is the nature of healthcare. there is plenty of opportunity for advancement, but if your program gets scrapped because of budget or change in management you will most likely not find otherwork.
good place to work long term .
when you get a bad manager or colleague you either quit or try to outlive them.
