That place is a zoo. I went there this morning to visit my neighbor and the hospital is very understaffed. Upon arrival, the first floor was full of bosses dressed in dress suits, coats and ties. But, ride up to the second floor and the scene is very different. I am not a nurse, but I truly felt sorry for them. They were running their behinds off and there were several complaints from other patient's family members in the few minutes I was waiting there.
How sad that this brutal leader is so concerned about new construction while the existing hospital is in such disarray. We must have a horrificly incompetent board of trustees in addition to a board of supervisors who are not doing their job very well. Shameful.
Who cares if somebody harasses the CEO in a subtle way. He is supposedly responsible for the hospital. Let him face the music. I'm tired of seeing him in the media proclaimaing how great things are. We all know those are lies. Things are less than great. Dangerous to say the least. So, go ahead, call him.
In terms of paitent care, yes the hospital is grossly understaffed... even though DRMC's census is also at an all time low. It seems that patients are finally getting the word that DRMC is not a safe place to be.
As for calling Ray at home to expidite your ER visit, I am afraid that will have a very limited effect. Even Ray will figure out how to screen calls or simply get an unlisted number. (It's like poking a jackass with a stick. While it may bring you pleasure for a moment, It will merely annoy the jackass and make him more likely to "kick".)
As to notifying the previously mentioned board members and administrative "elite"... that is an excellent idea. Call and/or write these people and let them know that Greenville has had enough of Ray Humphreys and his club. Demand that he and his lot be removed from service immediately. The only hope for DRMC is to get a competent, caring administrative team who will put the money where it belongs... which is by the bedside, rather than the board room!
