Community contract still allows for "windows"(ie: 7 hours paid in a 9 hour work schedule)which impacts moral and work life balance. Responsiblity level much more than Facility work, ie medication administration. Management at our office very good but physical disconnect effects care. As in all care settings there can be unhealthy competition. The hardest part of any health care setting is death. But timing of visits and travel always a challenge. My coworkers, nurses and managers are the best. And knowing that our clients are living, and dying in their own homes.
To be honest it was such a terrible experience I rather not remember the last few years I was employed with Island Health. Knowing that my co-workers are still having the same challenges with the same senior staff. So sad.

As a casual community support worker, you have to be available on the days and times you say you are. No time off in summer for any reason other than illness. And you have to be available one weekend day every week. You also do not know your schedule until approximately 4pm the day before and changes can be made until 8 pm. But they are a fair company and I do enjoy the work.
VIHA should be practical in spending the budget in healthcare wisely and be on top in terms of the training of the staff so that there will be no waste of equipment/resources because most staff doesn't even know how to utilize them. NRHG staff needs an attitude check in all aspects.

The behavior, attitude and ego of leadership is very unprofessional. There is favoritism with certain staff over others and it is obvious. People are hired not necessary for talent, skills or experience but who they know. Although there are pockets of positive culture some of the senior leaders in the organization do not value or show respect to their employees. Spreading rumors seems to be a common daily practice. There is little positive reinforcement, appreciation or acknowledgement of good work but quick to blame and share what the employee could have done better.
I have found my working experience at VIHA to be a collaborative, professional and organized in nature. The program of client care is built on the fundamentals of health care safety, quality, and above all else, patient care emphasized in delivering care that motivates clients to rehab and develop healthy habits in daily functioning tasks.
Depends on what area you work in, sometimes the team work is exceptional, and sometimes you are left to do most of the heavy work. Management is mostly pro-nurse, and can sometimes leave the care aides with little to no backup when it comes to dispute. The best part of the job is working with the patients!
I had 8 hours Float RN shifts and was able to work at both Victoria General Hospital and at the Downtown Royal Jubilee Hospitals. Overall, my clinical experiences and the supportive mentorship from senior nurse colleagues and the ONA Stewards was absolutely exceptional!! I miss working for VIHA, for sure.
