Shabbat and the residency: a rabbi advises

One posek I asked (I'm not going to say who it is, but you can probably narrow down the alternatives) said this:

If it were possible for all observant Jews to work in a shomer shabbos medical facility, it would surely be nice. I, however, do not believe that it is forbidden to work in a non-shomer shabbos facility. Do your best to avoid hillul shabbat, but when it must be done, do it be-shinui unless it is a case of pikuah nefesh or safek pikuah nefesh.
