Good staff poor managment
sterile services technician (Former Employee) – Glasgow, Glasgow – 12 July 2018
The nhs was a pleasent workplace, the culture was good,
evry day the staff learned something new due to the diversity of
the medical instruments that we had to steralise,a typical day at work consisted of prioritsing which instruments were to be processed
first, dependent on what operations had been performed in the previous eight hours.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the sense the sense of satisfaction if and when we caught up with the requirements of
the surgeons,which although rare in such a dynamic situation
was just about possible.
The hardest part of the job ,was having to collect used instruments
from the operating theatres,we would also have to collect instruments from high dependency wards, and could not help
but notice patients that were clearly in very poor health, no
longer in the ward the following day.
In my experience within the NHS the managment were rather
aloof ,frustrated and did not have much regard for the staff
they were overseeing.
