Queensland Health Employee Review

Supportive workplace

Challenging work, great environment, solid ethos. I suffered a mental health breakdown during my time at QH and they went above and beyond to support me through this time and phase me back into work. Could not ask for a more supportive management and team. Of course, QH is a vast organisation and your experience may differ. I work at the Health Contact Centre in Brisbane.

Eye-opening and unpredictable

When I initially applied for the job, I thought it would provide many a challenges to overcome and indeed it has. The job for the most part is assisting the nursing staff with patient care (cleaning up, transferring from ward to medical imaging, etc…). However, it also includes more challenging times, such as taking deceased patients to the mortuary, this can be difficult for some but there is mental health services to assist with debriefing if needed, usually the “wardies” will talk amongst themselves, a somewhat “informal debriefing” From what I have observed and experienced myself while working in the auxiliary services as a wardsman or “Wardie” as most staff prefer to call you, you must be somewhat charismatic. This may be already obvious to whom is reading, but majority of patients you deal with in an in-patient setting are either geriatric or have underlying health conditions, being charismatic simply makes patient encounters less awkward and puts the patient as ease. one of the favoured acronyms all hospital staff use is AIDET (acknowledge, introduce, duration, explanation and time) If you are interested in the role as a “wardie” I would say, “give it a crack” not only is it a very diverse job, but you will have a greater appreciation for life itself.
