A Government Hospital

A very busy workplace. The job is always hard due to the nurse: patient ratio. Big opportunities for career advancement. Also, Southern Philippines Medical Center is the biggest regional hospital in Davao City.

Great company

Was not an employee in this company but an intern. And in my current job this company is our customer, I can say as an intern and a dealer in this company is should apply for this company, it offers good salary/benefits and compelling job security.

good place to hone your skills as a nurse

A typical day at work consist of interacting with the patients assigned, carrying out doctors orders, do primary nursing and working slong with fellow nurses and nursing attendants. I learned how to be more compassionate with patients specially that the area I was assigned in deals with cancer patients. With a very capable head nurse to oversee operation, work and productivity is always accomplished in a daily basis. The hardest part of the job is losing a patient from cancer and the most enjoyable part is seeing cancer patients get better, able to do the things they love and be with their loved ones.

Pros

airconditioned unit

Cons

short breaks

Increase workload with less benefits

Increase workload without proper compensation to the worker. The bonuses is not enough to the health workers. There is no security of tenure. Hope they will improve

Pros

None

Cons

Imbalance compensation

Productive, very busy, fast paced, fun workplace

a very busy, toxic, hectic, fast paced and fun work place. a great place to learn and practice nursing and other fields of medicine. a busy day is a typical day at work, everything is busy, everybody is in rush mode but a busy day at work will always be fun if you're learning and that's what i experienced, i learned a lot from my co-leagues/nurses and doctors alike. SPMC is like a training ground and more like a stepping stone to pursue more to your dreams and the ever-wanted "greener pasture" of the outside world. the training and knowledge that SPMC provides is worth the stay of ever-fast-paced workplace. the hardest part of the job is always the nurse:patient ratio , for SPMC is a tertiary hospital that caters a 1,200 bed capacity and to which wards are over populated and nurses are out numbered by clients' census.

Pros

salary grade

Cons

extended work hours

productive workplace

I have only been working in this institution for a year now but it has been a long ride for me. I barely noticed the passage of time while I serve the community. The overall experience has been fun filled with lots of learning as well. The only hardest part of work being an employee is having to face large volume of patients since this is a government hospital. Time management and decision making have been developed as I went through my journey here. My colleagues have been helpful especially when I have just started the OR set up wherein I had no prior experience.

Pros

free seminars with CPD units, good benefits

Cons

slow progress in hiring
