I have been working at The Ottawa Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Location being in the capital city with so many cultures which adds to the life experiences of being aware of the population needs.

Cons

Shift work has always been a deterrent to a promotion of healthy lifestyle, however, have to live the good, bad and the ugly.

Advice to Management

Your front line workers are what makes the management greater. More of a wiser healthier choice for relaxation and dietary improvements would be helpful.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to move within the hospital.
    Pay is in keeping with ONA guidelines.
    HR department is helpful.
     Educational opportunities.

    Cons

    Management is difficult and shows favourtism.
    French is really pushed at the the hospital. don't let them tell you it is because we are bilingual..the numbers don't warrant this push except in the minds of the Francophones who work there and want it to be another French first hospital.
    The Civic campus is filthy!
     A lot of gossip, bullying and backstabbing amongst a large portion of nurses.Heard it from nearly every floor at the Civic.
    Cutbacks in the most ridiculous places. They want to cut the RACE team of all things but tend to find money in the budget to build a new cafeteria, and provide nurse hospital wide with lab coats!
    Bad atttitude from many residents and doctors throughout the hospital. EGOS are very big!

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your staff, and not just the select individuals a manager chooses. All staff have valuable input.
    Make it easier to report bad behaviour from the doctors and residents who treat nursing like they have no knowledge or important contributions to make when discussing a patient. They should be listening to the front line workers, they are the eyes and ears of the patients!
    Managers should be held acountable for their behaviour when they treat staff members unfairly and unequally in comparison to other staff members. Nurses should be able to report this without fear of ramifications within their job and work environment.
