ENAS (Current Employee) – Townsville QLD – 3 May 2019
Generally a good and pleasant place to work. Townsville is a teaching hospital so staff skill levels vary a lot.
The introduction of iEMR (the digital medical record system) is terrible from a nursing perspective as it is cumbersome and glitchy, and has massively increased time not spent with patients and instead typing into computers. Doctors seem to like it as they no longer have to chase patient charts all the time.
Contrary to QH public statements it has not increased pt safety, and is viewed by a majority of staff as tedious and time consuming.
good pay and conditions, job security.
iEMR. also if you have a "difficult" boss/NUM all complaints will be ignored.
