Co-operative and caring

Mature people, fair and responsible. They look out after each other. People work in teams and support each other through difficult times. If you have a problem, just talk and you will be helped. Nurses are kind and friendly.




Hours are tolerable. No overworking.

The company acts at the best interest of the employees.

We got exposed to alot of different patient cases which gave us the opportunity to acquire knowledge as students. I was able to also acquire the problem solving skills and trouble shooting skills.

Worked with very professional people. All had common goals.

The hospital was very equipped with the necessities required. There was enough staff in all disciplines, because it's an academic hospital. Very clean

Fun workplace

The hospital is well kept and the staff are exceptionally friend. As a student at the hospital there was a wide variety of patient conditions, making it an awesome place to learn

Yes because some people if they know about the salary will going to be withdrawn or not willing to work saying that is too small according to understa

People must apply the job not knowing the salary . Work comes first and then get a reward.i like to work in Steve Biko I saw the nurses working very hard helping people

productive and fun workplace

productive and fun workplace be prepared to work long hours and shifts. be dedicated and prepared to learn everyday. work in collaboration with other multi-disciplinary team and students from different institutions. must be able to cope under pressure. there are rewards for personnel who performed well at every year. it has a radio station for daily updates and weekly if not monthly newsletter on the hospital achievements and challenges. management holds monthly meetings with employees to hear their challenges and how they can improve in providing quality health care. security for patients and personnel is prioritized as there is locked electric controlled entrances at the main entrance and all different wards. it offers opportunities for further development as there are programs to arranged for staff development.
