Avis d'employé sur London Health Sciences Centre
If you can find an equally well paying job elsewhere - take it.
I find it very challenging to work in a place where senority counts for everything. There is no reward for ongoing professional development, continuing your education, making yourself the most qualified and best candidate for the job. Senority rules here. Our bedside nurses have graduate degrees, while our management has community college diplomas.

Great colleagues, HOOPP
Shift work, poor benefits, senority rules, poor work life balance, vacation black out periods, missing holidays with your kids (Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc)
I’ve worked here for almost 10 years, it’s was great at first. I actually enjoyed going to work & had a work family. I was proud to say I worked there. Now the only thing that matters is the almighty dollar. The company is management heavy, continually adding more & more layers of supervisors/managers but stripping staff to bare bones. It is no longer about patient care, it’s basically an assembly line & frontline staff are the robots to shuffle people through. Nurses & PSWs are expected to work anywhere they see fit no matter your qualifications. So long as they can say the unit is staffed. Once their “exemplary standing” was met by Accreditation everything went downhill faster than a meteor falling from outer space. Once Accreditation comes around again they’ll be scrambling to meet the standards of care again. RPNs do practically the same job as RNs for way less, the organization is forcing RNs into supervisory roles against their will or they are told to “move on”. It has become a SUPER TOXIC workplace. I highly advise you look elsewhere for employment.
Most staff genuinely care about the patients
It’s not a hospital, it’s a company looking to make money.
Applying within or outside of your department/hospital will be blocked. You will be forced to work in poor conditions and stuck from leaving as they are strapped for staff and can't afford to lose a body. Yes a body, you are only a body. Bodies keep business moving but that's all you are, a body. Bullying tactics are not only allowed, they are encouraged by management to handle staff (Toyota Method -shaming staff to get results). Poor workers are promoted and excellent workers are stuck in their current positions. Why move what's working? LHSC motto = MORE IS LESS
It's a job that pays
