RN (Former Employee) – Attadale WA – 15 April 2017
Great place to work. I had the best time of my life. Excellent management and supportive. I learnt my new skills over there. Hard part over there which i took as lessons I learnt my new skill. I grew so much over there.
Conveniently located workplace and hours. Overall, poor working environment as outlined above. Resignation due to lack of managerial support for staff, and plans to extend hospital into fields I did not wish to work in.
Enrolled Nurse (Current Employee) – Joondalup WA – 20 July 2016
Great co workers work load to heavy to give the quality of care we as nurses want to give to each patient Management continually put more on the nurses without any acknowledgment or extra resources to manage increased work load or paper work
A typical day includes talking to patients and other health pro fessionals, co-ordinating their day and keeping them pain-free and encouraging independence. My co-workers are mostly supportive and fun. The hardest part of the job is being casual and moving around. The best part of the job is forming relationships with patients.
Data Entry (Former Employee) – St Kilda Road VIC – 20 March 2016
Very repetitive work, but great people and atmosphere. Very lenient bosses as well as a long lunch breaks. The hardest part of the job was probably double checking everything, the easiest part was putting values into the computer.
Carry out general nursing duties, Many areas of care requiring continual education which management are always promoting and active in maintaining. With such a wide range of patient needs I sometimes feel I may not have fulfilled my job in some areas, though with team nursing it is satisfying to know my co worker has been there and I can rely on them. I always feel i have accomplished my days work to the best of my ability and my knowledge and experience is always on offer to the junior staff.
Typical day in scrub /scout being organised is key to a successful operating session. This position is ever changing with new products and procedure techniques. My evening management staff are great communicators and co-workers are skilled. Hardest part of the job is, having adequate instrumentation and consumables, as storage is an issue. Learning new ideas is a great part of the job. Having a good working relationship with co- workers and immediate persons in the work place.
I enjoy my position in the day surgery, we have to have good time management skills, I enjoy talking to the different patients when they come in for their admission. It is good to see them after their procedure. The hardest part of the job is when the patient doesnt get a good outcome. Working in a small environment is enjoyable but you have to learn to deal with different personalities as well.
Working with a team a bit more of a relaxed environment at times
Sometimes staff members can be difficult to work with.
AIN (Former Employee) – Gold Coast, QLD – 18 November 2013
Pindara was a really rewarding and supportive environment to work in. I had the opportunity to work with some fantastic professionals and witnessed real care provided to patients. I was proud to be apart of the team and worked hard to provide a good standard of care for the patients. My day consisted of basic ADLs and patient cares. Transferring patients to other facilities or home was a regular occurrence.
Front Office Manager (Former Employee) – Noosaville, QLD – 8 October 2013
A typical day at work for me as Front Office Manager always had many different elements ranging from - Staffing requirements, IT issues, general trouble shooting, rosters, patient contact, liaising with other hospital managers, submitting reports and general office duties. Have a wonderful team constantly working towards a high work ethic and a good moral ensured a high work through put and general wellbeing in the office. As a manager the one big lesson I learned was that my staff didn't care how much I knew, they only wanted to know how much I cared, and cared about them. Once they knew that, they would bend over backwards to meet hospital set requirements (KPI targets) and seek to have all shifts and bases covered when the need arose. The most enjoyable part of my job was the 'troubleshooting' aspect with my team members. I love thinking on my feet and being able to find pathways for best possible outcomes. Areas for troubleshooting included: customer service, staffing issues, rosters, IT issues, printer problems and general office requirements. The hardest part of my job was to put all processes and procedures onto paper. This area required more discipline and commitment from me to get the job done, but once I started and gained momentum, the rest came easy. The hospital management is fantastic. My managers were approachable and easy to work for and with. Working with and open door policy, they assisted and helped where they could and would encourage managers to come up with new ideas for streamlining work processes and implementing them. A big focus at the hospitalmore... was on teamwork and ownership.less
