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.

They provide decent benefits. Wages are only so so for the work you do. Employees are very dispensable. You do get to meet great people. Once in , you can apply internally, for diff jobs within VIHA.
Terrible union, not much support or benefits for the amount of yearly deductions Toxic environment, toxic people seem to congregate. Managers are hand picked from former managers friends , usually not based on skill No advancement Changes in upper management turnaround as high as low skilled workers

Management was great, work environment not so great. As a new employee i have never found it so hard to have fellow employees treat me as a person, lunch rooms were like something from mean girls, staff was very clicky and didn't really give an inviting atmosphere as a new employee
Terrible place to work if you like to feel appreciated, feel safe, or expect professionalism. I’ve been here a long time and feel doomed to stay because of my pension. Would not recommend this company.
Pay, job security
Culture is as bad as it gets
I would be sent to smoking client's in spite of doctor's notes and numerous reminder's Not allowed to sit with client's when offered a seat Felt harrassed
friendly office for drop in

Emplois et carrières chez Island Health
Island is a huge company and experience differ from department to department. my first experience was awful, the supervisor was control freak, never allow you to do anything unless 'they" tell you. it was hard to learn. So I move to a different department. My next department were so helpful. good orientation, allow self learning. Good work place respect
Not easy to get a promotion
If you're looking for a fun, enjoyable place to work, look elsewhere. But if you like being treated disrespectfully, bullied, yelled at, blamed then this is the hellhole for you! The most unenjoyable place I've ever worked! Read the report on just how toxic this place is before you venture into it.
Provides benefits for your family. The organization is poorly organized. To many different departments responsible for parts of processes. Making lots of room for errors. ex: payroll and booking vacation time. Policys developed by CEOs and not followed up by management, causing the employee to defend them self to other mangers.
no work life balance
When I was first hired and never had used the Viha Computer system I found that it would’ve been most helpful if you could have taken courses on their system so you understand fully how that system works. Coming from Fraser health they have computer courses to support your learning ability of their system. Being admin support staff the wages are worse than pathetic and we are so far behind. As for being a casual on call, the new:call out system for staffing is very broken. Sad to think of all the money they spent implementing that and they still haven’t got it working the way it should. Working at Oceanside Health Centre has become an absolute joke there as they call it “ The Oceanside shuffle “ That’s because staffing could not get the calls out in a timely manner and management has to shuffle staff around to make the day work. Doesn’t make for a great working environment. There is no comradory among staff and the morale is extremely low. As the saying goes, there is now “I” in teamwork.
nice new facility
Extremely Low wage, low morale
The care provided by the majority of the workers is excellent. Many happy memories with the most sensitive time in a person's life. I have learned from people what is important to them. The staff is stretched to the limit. We are rushed with care. The baths are once a week .. bed bath daily with a quick swish. The politics times difficult to deal with. Gentle care policy is now in place so patients are handled with more care and less Arm & Arm approach.. The ceiling lifts are great.. patients enjoy the lift from bed to chair ect.. Activity programs are entertaining and caring and include family involvement. It is the most rewarding career I have ever had.
Patient Care is team based.
The salary has barely changed in the past 10 years.
My Previous viha work place. Typical day at work, usually short one of the only 2 RN's. Usually short at least 1 HCA. Then the robbing peter to pay paul starts. A few floors have a 30+ residents to one Lpn ratio. With 1 RN that can get hectic. Management fails miserably in attempts to have facility fully staffed. Viha staffing obviously has another agenda, other than filling the sick calls that come in many hours before the texts are sent out to casuals or other staff to fill the void. Oh and the best part is now that Viha has came on board there are an abundance of management that work Monday to Friday.
Work short most days. Some 6 day rotations. Very few weekends off.
