Educational but stressful

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

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.

A rewarding but trying work environment

Requires resilience and the capacity to work under pressure. Requires flexibility and the ability to adapt to difficulties and changes in the environment. Rewards include working with patients from various walks of life and working with various mental illnesses.

Intetesting workplace

It is an interesting place to work at, where you get to deal with speciality conditions which contributes in an individual being interested in a specific speciality. However the problem is shortage or staff and experience of burn outs on individuals.

Pros

Benefits of extra hours

Cons

Burnout

it builds you to be a strong and to be patient

Open -minded job which exposes you in dealing with critical and ventilated patients. Doctors are always available when in need. Patients are being taking care of by staff at all time.

Pros

free internet

Cons

restricted time for lunch

There are good and bad times. But I try to adjust in any situation as long as patient care is not compromised.

Protocol and the way of doing things are not uniform around the whole hospital. I have learned to work under different personalities. And mostly I've learned how important is record keeping in the field of nursing. I have also adjusted to working with co-workers of different backgrounds/race/cultures. The hardest part of the job is working with Nurses only most of the time without presence of a Doctor . I enjoy being a shift work cause I can plan my life outside of work (social activities)

Pros

there is uniform and housing allowance

Cons

shortage of resources

Productive and fun workplace

So far i've had a great day at work, i learned to persevere in everything that i do even if things turn to be hard at times, my colleagues are team players and are always willing to teach if one doesn't know

Productive and Educational workplace

I work in the Trauma Casualty. A typical day at work involves applying the triage process to trauma patients and categorizing them as P1, P2, P3 and P4. It is a fast paced job that requires you to be a quick thinker and a hard worker, always putting the needs of your patient first. It is a learning curve as each patient will present differently and the management is thus tailored according to the patients needs. Being an academic hospital, one needs to be willing to advance themselves professionally by gaining more knowledge through books and experience. Co-workers are friendly and most are willing to teach. What I enjoy most about my job is the multi-disciplinary approach and interaction between health professionals to deliver an adequate health service to all patients.

Pros

Academic institution - Great learning experiences

Cons

Long working hours
