Job Culture
This place is rife with autocrats and cliques whom thrive on gossip, lies and nepotism, management, employees and medical staff all stalk the halls trading gossip about patients and staff alike and expertly bullying staff by playing victim themselves, therefore, effectively turning their own anti bullying processes on it’s head. Management are either complicit about this or are extremely dim witted, as they still say they don’t know what to do about fixing this toxic culture when the answer is obvious. The result is an extremely toxic culture and great knowledge gaps due to a lot of skilled staff leaving. Although a new hospital is being built the culture is becoming worse.
Hope DHHS steps in soon and drains the swamp.

It was very active during my placement, a lot of the people there were willing to help he during my time there. The hardest part of being there would be trying to communicate with others because they're older than I.

Awful employer with a culture of bullying, intimidation and management incompetence. My review would mirror the earlier ones relating to a toxic culture of bullying and nepitism... which stems from upper level management and executives who support employees only if they 'agree' with them. Raise your hand and you'll go through the HR process.
Pros
Good union
Cons
Poor management ethic

Working in ICU make you to be ready to look after wide variety of patients We looking after acutely ill, high dependency and coronary care patients.
I learnt to work as a team played and as an independent practitioner.


Our unit manager very supportive and always listens to our concerns


Our Unit always welcomes new nurses and supports students during placements.


The hardest part of job is night duty


The most enjoyable part of job is satisfaction when critically ill patient recovers from illness and moves to the ward. The other enjoyable part of my job is social interaction with my work mates.
Pros
Flexible working arrangements
Cons
lack of support from medical staff

Been a great deal of negative media attention exposing poor culture over 2016. The management exhibits a lack of value toward staff, with Executive management appearing most concerned with economics. Mass exodus in mental health dept. which would appear to support the media's claims.
Pros
Colleagues & salary packaging
Cons
Poor higher management regard for staff well being.
