The Wesley Hospital provided a great foundational education for me as a new graduate registered nurse.
The day was composed of setting up the theatre, gathering instruments and equipment, discussing the day with the surgical and anaesthetic team, performing the operations, lunch, providing the afternoon staff with tea relief, setting up for the following days list.
Management and culture of the Wesley were generally quite good and upbeat. They performed rounds to the theatre to ensure everyone was getting breaks and had the support they required. They were available to the floor staff when issues occurred.
Long hours, occasionally without breaks.
The whole team is fantastic to work with and incredibly supportive. It really is one big family.
Well stocked tea room. Supportive team.
Sometimes missed meal breaks
