Due to this being a profit making business contracted by The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, called Syked Assistance Services, the physical and mental well being of the nurses are not considered in this high stress level job. Nurses are not supported by their managers and complaints only get you threats of losing your job. Alot of good nurses have left or have been fired for complaining about the stress level or attempting to start a union. When fired you are told if you fight them, your leaving package will be smaller!!
I left a great role for this position looking for a better opportunity and ultimately left a few months later. In addition to the unstable public health sector, I had the displeasure of working with the most incompetent, condescending & unqualified manager ever. She had little knowledge of my role & constantly depended on the difficult & nasty Research Analyst to train new staff. The workload was unevenly & unfairly distributed, leaving me with the short end. When I spoke to her about it, she did nothing. Many of the staff were unhappy with her & ultimately left. There are far more qualified WOC that deserve this role over her.
