Enrolled Nurse (Former Employee) – Victoria – 29 June 2017
I worked for Monash Health for little over a year,was close to home.lovely Managements,supportive staff. loved the education session.I learned a lot about Mental Health and I was able to experience the other side of Nursing..I enjoyed working with the patients and family.
great environment, team work, scheduled and allocated work. different shifts availablity
Not a good organisation to work for. Staff are bullied and intimidated if they report it. Some wards are better than others but tje executives put so much pressure on NUMs it is hard to not be affected. Work somewhere else.
Staff shortages mean constant recruitment
Toxic culture, bulllying, unfair workload, no career progression
We had a job description to adhere too, It was challenging at times but because of good teamwork we were able to complete all required tasks in the time limit. I left this job to relocate interstate to be closer to family.
human information services (Current Employee) – Berwick VIC – 26 February 2017
Very busy, and interesting job. I am wanting more to learn and more hours. Most enjoyable part of my job is seeing the unwell patients leave happy again and the hardest part of my job would be the mental health patients that we some times deal with.
Good Company to work for they care about their employees

Physiotherapist (Former Employee) – Dandenong VIC – 14 June 2016
The staff at Monash health are very friendly and helpful.
Excellent support from other Allied health staff, nursing and medical.
Would not advise working here if you are a physiotherapist and based at Casey or Dandenong. The manager is very difficult to work with and he does not allow you take ADO or annual leave when you want them. A very toxic environment because of this. This is the only reason I left the organisation, if there was a change in management I would return in a second. Very high turn over of staff because of this, especially Grade 1s
A typical work day at the hospital was busy from the start of the shift to the end; there is a set schedule that must be followed. While following the schedule I would have to assist nurses and interact with patients. Throughout the time I was there I learned the systems of the hospital and how the PSA's fit in and their part in the hospital. The co-workers were very helpful and understand and patient with me. The hardest part of the job is dealing with people who have passed away. The most enjoyable is making the patients happy and seeing them smile and talking to them.
Cashier's office is interesting, but very busy & very understaffed. You need to learn 6 computer systems plus word & excel, that are used daily. There is no flexibility, so there is no such thing as work/life balance. No support. No negotiation. Most staff are new with little cashier knowledge. Hardest part if the job is getting quick, correct directions on queries. Best part of the job is going home.
Customer Service Clerk, patient admissions (Current Employee) – Clayton, Dandenong and Moorabbin – 22 July 2015
It is a vibrant and busy work place. Having the opportunity to assist people in the community is very satisfying and can be extremely interesting. I use a security tag to enter into my work space and present to the community through a glass security window. I open up three different software packages, that allow myself access to all the inpatients across the Monash Health system, including all emergency departments. I handle inpatient enquires over the phone and at the window. I assist people with directions to different medical departments and wards. I work as part of a six member team. The hardest part of the job is coping with constant deaths, and the emotions of their visitors. The most enjoyable part of my job is feeling the appreciation from those of us that are at our most vulnerable.
Working with great team members and in a controlled climate.
Working dynamic team environment High patient load sometimes with inadequate administrative and clerical support Dedicate and competent co-workers Achieve successful rehabilitation results for patients
Workplace support from co-workers
High patient load with limitations of physical resources
Community Development officer (Former Employee) – Springvale – 17 February 2015
I found Monash Health offered so much opportunity for an employee to learn and grow from their time there. I had the opportunity to work on leadership skills, case management opportunity, running programs etc. We had a really great team leader who was always very supportive and caring.
I enjoy working although on a 'casual basis' at various sites of Monash Health. The best experience I have had is working at the Nursing and Midwifery department. I undertake general admin. work which include answering of phones, daily management of Basic Life Support (BLS) sessions, arranging of interviews and data entry for the Graduate Nurse Programs, diary management and interacting with the Nursing Educators on daily basis and have gained a deep insight of all aspects of Nursing and Education.
The staff and management at all the sites were very helpful, caring and there has always been a spirit of comaraderie among staff and management which is to be commended.
i thoroughly enjoy working at the various sites and its a pleasure to be a part of such a wonderful team. Personally, I found my job good and probably the hardest part of the job is mastering the IPM (Inpatient management) system due to lack of time but with additional training, I will perfect the job. The most enjoyable part of my job is having the opportunity to interact with staff and management at all levels.
Gaining valuable experience, flexibility with working hours
