Management issues

The job itself is stressful enough without management deliberately making staffs working day harder. Alot of petty behaviour that's completely unnecessary.

Pros

Good wages good breaks

Cons

Long days, night shifts, management

stressful / unrewarding

i found the HSE to be the same as any other government body. 12 hour shift. strange management structure. highly stressful workplace hardest part of the job was working with the public who are quite sick and upset. most enjoyable part was the other staff.

Interesting

Working in theatre is an interesting place to work as you get to see first hand all the various procedures being carried out. Duties such as equipment set up and hygiene are paramount and guidelines must be followed

Pros

Free parking

Cons

Long hours

I love the job I do looking after the elderly is such an enriching experience . Every day is different behind every older person's door is a story .

The problem with being a healthcare assistant for the Hse out in the community is we work long days. Our service is in high demand in the morning up until lunch ,the afternoons not so much so in order for me to make a wage I go out again in the evening as this is also a time that's in demand . So if you can follow my drift I finish most days around three o clock but I am back out again for sixthirty so my time is spent watching the clock . Some of my colleagues are working 12 days with 2 days off then back into a 12 day cycle again in order to make a decent living hence my reason for looking elsewhere at this stage for regularity and security.

Pros

Looking after wonderful people

Cons

The long days to make up the hours, plus we spend a minimum of 30 minutes with some of the people we take care of, very few of us leave after 30 minutes, sometimes it's not possible and so that's our time we are giving .

Very good liason betwern management, staff and clients.

For anyone trying to juggle home life and young children with a good career and excellent pay, this is a great position to hold. It is very well managed and making contact at base is generally very fast. Now each employee has a pre pay phone for making contact and calls concerning work and clients. Travel expenses are paid from the 1at to the 2 me client and so on. You can regulate your hours to blend with family life.

great experience

most enjoyable part of the job is helping people when they are in times of crisis, nursing people back to health and watch them improve over a couple of days or months

Interesting and Different every day.

Meeting families, earning trust, engaging with them and helping them change concrete views and generational traits and practices when are passed from one generation to the next without thinging or questioning the patters. When the partner does not agree with this style of parenting how they can listen and really understand the other persons view. Meet with children and give them a voice if they so choose in the middle of the parental dificulties. I learn as much from the families as they open their minds to change when we are working together. I have many different aspects to my day and my role working with the family. I meet with work coleagues on a daily basis and I meet my line manager twice a month for reflective practice discussions, which helps me to know the direction I will go with my case and where I eventually wnat to end up with my cases. In other words it takes me out of the case and cocentrates on the needs of the particular families at that time. For me personally the hardest part is that I work part time and the familys being referred in are very high numbers. The waiting lists are long.There is a need for more people working with families. The most enjoyable part is bringing change to a family and seeing how they go on and manage and develop and this in turn helps the children and their environment.
