HR was lovely and provided wonderful training, but on the floor was the complete opposite. The backstabbing amongst nurses was unbelievable. I have never experienced such a toxic workplace. If you don't fit with the clic, you're a goner. I don't feel I could have reported workplace violence without significant issues.
This is a voluntary position. I worked in the Ontario Breast Screening Program, 2nd Floor Day Surgery and Information Desk as you come into the hospital. I learn alot by volunteering there. There is always someone that needs a friendly smile and help everyday.
Get to meet and help people
There are no cons.
Norfolk Hospital Nursing Home is not a healthy work environment. PSW staff are not appreciated and expected to care properly for residents without enough staffing. Awful communication from management leading to increased stress and confusion among staff. Due to lack of staffing care is task orientated over resident orientated. Pay is not in line with cost of living.

Unless you're FT (full-time) staff, you're just another number in the books. No care for anyone working part time. Expectations are unrealistic and the management abuse their authority "within reason" while hiding behind the management title in the union. There is no way to make a complaint about any full-time staff without resulting in a termination. Your hardwork goes unnoticed by the people who are supposed to matter. The communication is terrible. You are penalized if you miss a call or a voicemail. Trying to get management to communicate by modern means such as text messaging is nearly impossible. The management keeps a private and inaccurate track record of all staff called in to use as ammunition for their terminations. They will not express any reason for termination of part time staff. They will repost the same jobs on indeed claiming to be hiring yet they keep getting rid of part time people for the "numbers game" they're really playing. Don't bother wasting your time putting any effort at this place. If you get hired here, give it your minimum effort and care because that's all your worth at NGH Simcoe. Plan for the next job.
Somewhat okay pay.
Corrupt management, unrealistic expectations.
Was only a part-time employee and as such took on call frequently. Staff were supportive and eager to help when needed. Great place to work but due to government cutbacks, I was laid off.
NGH is a great work environment and provides excellent patient care. Funding is lacking and the building itself is aging but this doesn't stop staff from providing excellent care. The management team has some wonderful leaders and they encourage staff to learn and try new things.
I volunteered in various departments within Norfolk General Hospital throughout both my high school and university careers. Each area helped me further develop insight within the medical world. With only one shift per week it's hard to describe a typical day as mine changed so frequently, some workers were more willing to take on the role of educating me but I loved everything involving the public. The only downfall was when I was isolated in the lab during grossing (dissecting and sectioning) but that is something I learned a great deal from.
A typical day at work is usually 6-8 patients with a very heavy workload. Unlike other hospitals, there is no security team/system, and there is only 1 porter on the site at all times, if we are lucky enough to have one that day. As a nurse, you are responsible for way too many odd jobs, such as unclogging toilets, escorting patients to their vehicles upon discharge, and preparing and delivering your own patient for tests such as CT/ECG/Xray. Very heavy workloads, usually under staffed. Could use more nursing equipment, and more nurses.
Rural initiative through osap
Rural Hospital issues/under funded
Just a great place to work the Doctor and Nurses treat you well and patient care is amazing , There always new challenges but its either feast or famine with the hours if your full time no issues for the part time it is what it is . But i cant complain about anything
lack of part time hours
NGH is not a place to set down roots. Backstabbing co-workers, gossip, and lies run this place into the ground. Management does nothing about the actual problem in this place. Good employees are lost due to NGH lack of support!! Do not plan on staying in this facility long. Change is not accepted here. and cleanliness is a HUGE problem!
Lack of support, not family oriented, very unreliable
fun and fast paced at times but lots of support for me there when i needed help, which was almost always as a new grad. very caring management and willing to help me when i needed.
opportunities to learn
The Nursing staff at Norfolk General are kind, compassionate and always advocating for the patients that they care for. Norfolk General Hospital is always looking for the community's feedback on their services and care and how they can improve.
I worked in the kitchen .the girls are so nasty .they expect you to do a job in 2 hours that would normally take four hours .they don't even give you a chance to learn everything .they report if you make the smallest mistake .
not good employees to work with
I managed the coffee kiosk which is staffed by volunteers. I learned so much about managing a team of amazing people who are there because they want to be not for a paycheque. This also taught me some patience because at the drop of the hat a volunteer might contact me saying they can't do their next shift which might be in the same day leaving me scrambling to find an available volunteer to fill in. Management for this position was incredible. She taught me so many things about ordering and working with volunteers; managing some very different personalities. The hardest part about this position was not ever knowing if the kiosk would be staffed for the day and if not the challenge of finding an available volunteer. The most enjoyable part of this position was the volunteers. They were for the most part taught me the value of giving your time to something you are passionate about. That it is not always about a paycheque.
Meeting some incredible people and learning a lot about myself through them.
Not ever truly having time off.
After over 10 years of nursing, and over 6 years at NGH this is the last place I would recommend to someone looking for a nursing position. Human resources does not follow the collective agreement and grievances or challenges to their decisions result in being ostracized from the organization. Respect and appreciation for staff is non existent. Staff to patient ratio is very high, and vacation time is almost always denied. My advice is to find an organization which values and appreciates it nurses, recognizes staff loyalty and treats it's staff with dignity and respect. NGH claims to provide the community with caring and compassion, yet can't even treat their staff and particularly their nurses with the same courtesy.
Workload, lack of respect for staff and collective agreement, denied vacation
