When it come to paramedic department there is no specific management for paramedics. Clinical nurse site manager is the one managing ER nurse, Paramedics and some other department. Its is so difficult to manage three department in same time, maybe because that's why she is doing a terrible job.
I was interviewed by Jan 2020 for the position it was over the phone. Interview was a joke and easy, I ask them what is my duties ? specially when they saying other related duties. They said taking Vitals,ECG, IV cannulation, bring patients to X-ray (portering duties) not limited for ER patients. That was strange to me. In Ontario where I come from, that never happened. We always have separate base and regulated under base hospital Doctors not by ER nurses. Anyways I accept the offer and hung up the phone.
I had a friend working in same service (LGH). I told my situation and ask his/her opinion. I was told working in this LGH paramedic service 90% them treated miserably by management and looking for a good opportunity to move out. When they work in Happy valley goosebay, they were assigned to work in 2 locations about 50kms apart need to use own vehicle to travel back and forth. Shift is 48 to 72 hours including oncall portion. While oncall they pay $2.5/hour If you get callouts only you get over time. Their management is mostly supportive to Nurses. So medics work below the nurses. There was so many things going over there. Frankly speaking management is inefficient.
There are places well recognize our paramedic profession. Work for them and get in to right path.
I would not recommend for my friend to work in here specially in ER nurse or paramedic unless they have no options. Management is so much unnecessary interference, forcing the staff for working extended hours but NOT PAYING RIGHT PAY. Very tough to get approval for vacations. Management push the staff for the maximum burnout but never care about the staff health being like family life
or PTST etc PTSD,family
