What do you value most about your hospital?

“Good culture, supportive DPET, and wide number of specialties”

“The continued learning opportunities and exposure to a wide range of unique and common clinical presentations.”

“Liverpool pays all unrostered OT without complaint.”

If you could change three things at your hospital what would they be?

“Better staffing for JMOs. More emphasis on meal breaks. Better rostering for after hours shifts.”

“Stop planned change to eliminate rostered overtime. Improve weekend rostering. More computers/phones in doctor’s rooms.”

“1. Staffing – very understaffed when looking at ratio of personnel to patient population. Very poorly funded hospital. 2. Rostering – poor sick coverage; not enough teams for medical specialties 3. Increased reimbursement for personal development – we are given $200 for learning purposes; what is this for – to buy a book? It is noted that at other hospitals the personal development fund is substantially higher – at 3-5k.”
