You know you are right. The work I did at DRMC was the hardest nursing work I ever did. I have worked in different states and in different units and different cities. But, although I really enjoyed the Physicians the work was very demanding. If I had to stay and work there for the remainder of my career I would never last as an RN.
As far as administration goes, again as I said before; it's as much about what you know about who you know- agree-agree- agree!!!!!!!! You need the right last name or be a part of the Ole Miss clique!!! Check and see who's related to who when it comes to upper management- and the flavor as well!
I love this blog- it is being read all around the world you know!!!! Keep up the honesty- it will prevail!!! God will watch over you .
Many former employees from this hospital feel validated when reading the comments on this website. I feel so badly for those that have to work there because of personal circumstances. it's really sad. It really is. It is not like this elsewhere, there are much better working conditions where it is not run by nepotism.
These employees- a lot of them are fearful to keep there job. Afraid to say anything or speak out against the current administration- if you do- that's it within a short time you are gone, or forced out of a job. That's why current employees are afraid to say too much. Especially middle management. It is not a good work environment.
They have seen it done- especially when KDH was bought- oh my-people were really afraid. But only by speaking out will things change for those still there. It is sad. Also- if anything is said- and anyone who talks about anything- it somehow works it's way back to administration- look out- they are watching everyone- either you are on the band wagon or look out-there is no protection either.
A nurse is a little more protected because of the dire shortage- but others are not and it's not fair- it is 2007- how is this allowed to happen?
How indeed? The consensus of opinion seems to be that DRMC needs a major overhaul. I only hope that Greenville voters remember that several of Ray Humphreys' "bosses" are running for re-election on Tuesday. If they can not see the problems at DRMC, perhaps we should enlighten them.
The conditions at DRMC will never changes as long as the "old guard" is in power. "A new broom sweeps clean".
