Job Culture

Toxic work environment

There is a bullying culture from the top down. You are told one day to do something, then yelled at the next day asking who approved that decision by the person who made that decision originally. Constantly understaffed. Staff do not want to stay. Overtime is never approved and you are blamed if it is necessary to work overtime. Senior/top management seen speaking to staff in condescending manner as though they are children. They are more concerned about saving money than people/ the staff and refuse to roster appropriately as a money saving measure. Constant mixed messages. Very stressful work environment. People are constantly expected to work beyond their scope of practice.

Pros

Nice area to live in

Cons

Toxic culture starting with management

Lazy workers

The call bells will be buzzing like crazy but the Team Leaders will be sitting on their bums in front of computers and doing nothing . Unfair patient allocation . Most times they give sling lifters and medically difficult patients to Casuals or those doing a short shift . The regular workers tend to get away with easy patients . If you have 4 patients and 2 need help at the same time, no one will help.

Extreme workload with unsupportive management

Entrenched subculture of not accepting changes and new ideas. No support from management, in fact management were hostile to change. Extremely heavy workload with no support offered. Job satisfaction gained from patients health outcomes.

Job Culture

Workplace with a very intrenched subculture.

As an previous employer I found the sub culture of the Royal Adelaide Hospital difficult. They were not accepting of new ideas from fresh individuals. They tended to find change difficult acceptance harder. Once accepted the culture is very supportive. Change of staff is a constant. Becoming diverse in attitudes important. The employment is challenging. With high expectations to accuracy and high performance. The education of staff is excellent. With the expectation of attendance of inservices almost every shift. Focus on patient care and attending to patients is paramount and the documentation reflects the high standards of care. Working into theSA Heath can be difficult but it is very rewarding.

Pros

Salary, flexabitlity in hours

Cons

Settling int the culture can be challenging.
