Worked with HCA for seven months and got to work in different facilities in Brisbane and every facility is different. I got to learn to use various technical tools like most of the facilities use computers and ipads for medication administration.
The challenge is that on one allocated shift I was not informed of a gastroenteritis outbreak at one facility on the night shift and also I had to cover three floors that night.

Very approachable and willing to listen an consider any concerns voiced with the ability to problem solve. Given the opportunity to travel to another region which was very exciting. The Staff at the other end were friendly and welcoming which is also a bonus.
Disability Support Worker (Casual) (Former Employee) – Melbourne VIC – 3 August 2018
Healthcare Australia has a very bad culture There is no security and there are no shifts available.
HCA is like a very bad temp agency- collecting resumes and personal information for jobs that do not exist, sending people on training courses they run with the hope of you staying on to realize to get work you need to do further study with them to get cert4 - There is no work if you don't have this, unless you want to be a glorified cleaner doing peoples laundry and dished and housework at a low pay. can wait more than 3 months for a 3 hour shift.
This company tell you they have plenty of work, they are misleading and have very little in Queensland metro . Management are not helpful and not supportive , delays with getting paid Shop around other company’s have more work
AIN / Personal Carer (Current Employee) – Brisbane Northern Suburbs – 21 April 2018
There is no typical day in Aged Car, everyday is different and that's one thing I love about my Profession. When it gets tough the tough get going to complete the daily care's in a kind, caring manner and with the upmost Respect, Dignity and integrity. I thrive on team work and co operation of others and at the end of a shift feel rewarded for accomplishing our tasks throughout the day
Hourly rate is more than the Felicities
Double shifts and been treated as just an Agency worker

I love being able to work with patients one on one as well as in nursing home and hospital team environment and work flexible shifts as needed. It has been invaluable to work with other nurses and gain knowledge through a diverse culture of people.

Registered nurse -casual (Current Employee) – Perth WA – 26 December 2017
when there is work it is abundant, but it is very seasonal and summer is financially a struggle You rarely go to the same place 2 shifts in a row and you get to experience how each hospital does things.
