I have been working for WDHB since 2008 and have found that although it is very busy and there aren't enough nurses on many shifts, overall I have enjoyed being part of the team there. The support we give each other in our differing roles allows for better patient care and knowledge sharing.

As per last review. Please look it up. I do not want to repeat the same thing over and over again to satisfy a robot and it's faceless algorithms any more. Sorry.
