I have been working at The Ottawa Hospital full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Wide variety of specializations practiced hereCons
Nurse Mangers who can work part time hours because of their dumping work on asst. managers/educators and charge nurses etc.
Intimidation and promises of promotions used to control inner circle.
Particularly bad in critical care areas (larger ones) easy for manager to hide behind staff and intimidate/bully them into doing the work.
Staff and resource cuts are used to justify increased workloads/poor moral - easier for poor management to hideAdvice to ManagementAdvice
Look at departments that are experiencing high level of turnaround, that need to pull from other areas consistently just to meet basic staff numbers
Clean up your nurse mangers - you can not expect your front line nurses to give their all when they see mangers that get away with coming in at 9:00 leaving at 15:00 and doing so on the backs of their staffDoesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookDisapproves of CEO
