Renal is a very special field that needs your time, it needs a person that can work under pressure, a person who can work fast because ...

If you need to work under pressure come to Renal, if you can work fast accurately come to renal, if you have family that needs you at their specific time then renal is not for you. If you can not manage time then also look for something else, if lazy then renal is not for you also....

Pros

Free training, given enough time to learn

Cons

Stress

Poor management

The Eastern cape manager is the worst and if Leone remains the eastern cape manager the company will be doomed.... She is the worst person ever! She has favorites which affects the day to day running of the company.

Productive and Fun workplace

A typical day at work: I) I get to work 15 minutes before clock in. 2)Greet all my colleagues and go straight to my office. 3) I open my diary and see what needs to be attend too for the day according to top priority for that day and mark in red pen. Deadlines too are written with a red pen. 4) Thereafter i open my e-mails to see who i need to attend to urgently. i transfer the information onto my diary with a green pen. i jot down not so urgent e-mails to attend too for the day too in a blue pen. i make sure that all work done for the day is highlighted in my diary and report to my manager information that requires her for that day. 5) Other Admin general work and communication, i write with a black pen and highlights ones attended too. What i learned: Depending on the day, if it is busy, i learn always to attend to all priorities needed for the day. i my days lesson is management of diary and priority. If it's not a busy day, i still attend to priority work first and make sure that all other general office work is done too for the day. i learn to multi task everyday and it has really given me the time to enjoy work without much pressure. Management: When it comes to management my diary is my baby. i need to constantly have a portable diary on me to write down every communication at hand via telephone, e-mails and communication within the workplace from my manager and other employees. This my way of working smart and it really eliminates forgetfulness in the workplace. i also communicate verbally on what needs to be managed from my side by other staff members. - 

Pros

Departmental of acute dialysis is very challenging,unpredictable and as coordinators warrant s quick decision making.

Gacutes is a very dynamic department.It need a decisive person who is able to work under pressure with limited resources.It is an area of where you can be sure of your operations, there's always a new challenge and new way of managing different work scenarios.Client satisfaction and excellent service being number priority.
