Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Competitive job culture. Stressful and under pressure. Excellent if you are looking for a corporate career. Enjoyable if you reach goals set out by management.

Early morning shift or late night shift. Learning opportunities are endless because of the nature of the work. Management of renal treatment is vital.

Workplace culture can be toxic at times due to high levels of sexism, racism and territorialism of female nurses towards their male colleagues in workplace environment. Otherwise good, most of time.

Pros

Excellent learning opportunities.

Cons

Long hours work. Shift work.

friendly patients and very nice workplace

Arrive early in the morning to see beautiful smiles from patients who cannot wait to be connected on the machine eager to see and talk to their nurses. two registered nurses would connect 5 patients each within 1 hour. I've learned to be fast, accurate and always maintaining aseptic technique and to be considerate about each client's unique characters. Workplace culture was very nice to arrive early connect the clients then have your tea. that was the norm. The hardest part of the job was getting to work at 4 am but as time passed by I got used to the hours. I enjoyed learning about how the kidneys work and there are different factors that contribute to stage 5 kidney failure.

Pros

breakfast at work

Cons

work at early hours of the morning ie 3am

stable company to work for

My work included 24/7 to place acute persons in the private hospital to do acute dialysis. Sort out staff problems. Sort out all paperwork that had to do with all acute dialysis issues. Ample opertunity to improve yourself Work place culture very stress full but enjoyable. Hardest part of the job was to wake up in the middle of the night to go and work when you could not get any of your staff members on the phone to go and work.

Pros

14 cheque

Cons

long hours

I admitted more patients and did more acute connections than any staff at Tshepo-Themba.

I enjoyed my stay there and was laughing all day.I learned to be open and to have tolerance in staff and patients.Management was okay though i did not like management style at times.Co-workers were excellent.Hardest part of job is when having a new patient and patient complicate and not sure whether to send patient home or to casualty for admission.Admitting more patients and making jokes with patients.

Pros

Performance bonus

Cons

Shortage of staff

it can be better

day starts at 8, very busy till i leave. i work well with the people in my team and enjoy when everyone is included in talks etc. my co-workers are young and vibrant. will rather not get into the topic of management. the hardest part of my job is dealing with a supervisor that doesnt understand me or have much supervisoral skills/people skills.
