They chew you up and spit you out

Always short staffed, staff often have to work double shifts to cover. Poor nurse:patient ratios. Very frequently there are no AIN staff booked to assist, very few orderlies to assist the staff.

Pros

Cheap lunches through the kitchen

Cons

Minimal support from senior staff and management

Very poor workplace culture. Obvious favouritism at both national and site level

Large turnover due to long-term cultural issues at both national office and facility levels. Lots of favouritism and inappropriate appointments. Example, new Chief Nursing Officer role advertised as requiring x years DON experience. Person appointed (internally) has zero DON experience but is a ‘yes’ person only. Corporate office has a long way to go to align to other healthcare networks and did not take necessary steps to appoint people with extensive experience in these other networks.

Pros

Free onsite parking at most hospitals

Cons

Rewarded people for doing their job and not going over and above.

A fantastic focused company to work for

One of the most challenging and satisfying appointments I ever had. They were growing rapidly when I joined and my skill set fitted perfectly with the growing and changing needs of the company. The staff, management and benefits were excellent.

Bad culture

Understaffed and over managed. Building and equipment outdated in need of major upgrade. Too many long term employees with outdated skills and controlment issues. Culture is extremely bad amongst older employees making it very hard for new or younger staff. Quality of food has dropped since a supposed upgrade to menu.

Apply elsewhere, public sector

Apply for work in public sector, this organisation is very controlled. Not much chances to move into different position/ upgrading. Very selective and biased with decision making.

Pros

Some Working colleagues are great

Cons

Minimum wage, controlling management

Healthscope is a very very poor management of hospitals.

Healthscope do not have the employee or the patient in mind. Their focus is purely on profit. No communication with the employees is taken in to consideration to build the business. Corners are cut to save money in regards to sufficient staff being on deck.

Productive and professional environment to work in

Loved working there with the patients and the nurses were amazing. Its a reasonably new hospital in a good location. I worked in different departments and was able to get a good feel for the culture of the hospital

Opportunities

Very face paced working environment, stimulating. Challenged my skills, however, honed my organisational skills and learned new database skills. Great staff to work with, Theatre Staff very helpful, Surgeons also supported me, therefore enabling the lists to production. A really great company to work for and I was very sorry to leave the company. However, it was for family reasons to work closer to home.

Pros

Great support when required, was also encouraged to ask for help in required.

Cons

Some long days

Busy workplace, but rewarding

Generally very busy ward. Pre and post operative patients. Learnt varied cares wirth specific surgeries. Management could be better, however the nursing team are excellent. Staff to patient ratio's are too high, especially at night and makes it difficult to give the nursing care I want to. I enjoy helping patients by nursing them back to health and empowering them to care for themselves.

Pros

Excellent Nursing team

Cons

Staff - patient ratios

great workplace

Working at health scope lead to a variety of experiences, all of which helped me develop as a practice nurse. Cannot fault the organisation in any way.
