I havr learnt alot working is such a big tertiary hospital. I feel my knowledge and skills would not have been so vast if I worked in a small regional hospital, and for that I will always be thankful.However the department that I work in, being Operational theatre has had a few challenges in the past few years that I have worked there.Firstly, I feel that the management is not supportive enough in considering the shortage of staff. They focus more on the work being done and satisfying statistics instead of the staff and they needs. Secondly, the department has a very stagnant way of operating. Leading to unnecessary overload of work when it come to most disciplines. For example theatre Nursing staff doing work that should be done by operator because that is what the management has allowed and introduced, leading to burn out due to unfair work load instead of training the right people to do the job.And lastly. Doctors are held at higher estimate than any other professional in the department. Therefore making is hard to accelerate matter of concern in various departments. Making it an unhealthy relationship between the multidisciplinary team and Operational managers doing nothing about it.However, The really awesome thing about working in this theatre is that there are frequent department rotations and you get a chance to learn the many disciplines. Unlike being in one discipline for years. Making you gain skills and competency from all the highly specialized units.

Great working environment, opportunity to study given

Self motivation required, one needs to have direction and personal goals to advance in their career, not much mentorship if any. Learning opportunity limited

Much work experience gained as its an academic hospital

It's been challenging to work with large community or population since it's in the center of Johannesburg,thus making the emergency unit to be always busy. Good working conditions and therapeutic environment keeps me going everyday. Wish I can get a post but no permanent posts available at present.

The management could be better which would improve most problems.

I enjoy the challenges and learning experiences but there is not much learning opportunities for career advancement provided by the institution. It can be stressful and challenging, one of the things I have learnt since working there is I am able to work under pressure, I can lead a team of workers, I am determined to provide the best holistic patient care.

Good learning environment

Working here has taught me how to work under pressure and how to stay focused. It's a good institution to learn different things and become exposed to real life situations.

productive and informative

A typical day at work to manage cancer patients receiving chemotherapy nad treatment for symptoms and complications management. I have learnt in this area to work independently and productive with the support of the unit manager. Learning about cancer management from the consultants and professors. The most difficult part is having a death in the unit or seeing a patient and family go through dying process.

Pros

attending conferences

Cons

critically ill patients
