There are more than thirty hospitals in Toronto that include acute care settings, rehab facilities and medical research and teaching facilities.
Some of them hire Personal Support Workers but some don’t.
PSW job at a hospital is considered relatively hard to get, partially due to the limited number of job openings. But recently, hospitals have started to utilize PSW’s in many inpatient care areas and sometimes also provide training to work in specialized inpatient units.
Some of the inpatient units where PSW’s work in a hospital are:
- Rehab units,
- Respirology, and
- Floor and observer assignments for close patient watch
- Critical care units such as ICU and CCU (Yes PSW’s work in critical care as well!)
