I was one of those outsiders who attended the extravaganza at Harlows. Wow, what a spread! Alcohol was flowing and the tables were filled with massive amounts of shrimp and prime rib. Yum.
For some reason, they invited spouses...how odd for a coding seminar? And yes, Ray Ray was there; wining and dining his providers. Funny thing is, halfway thru the speaker's presentation, he confidentially rose from his seat with his wife at his side and left. I guess he made it for cocktail hour and ate a good meal and he was done. Just like he is gonna do the folks at DRMC.
He will be gone in a flash after he has feasted on DRMC. And, yes, he had his little blackberry companion there with him, Alphe. Mazie was present too smiling like there was no tomorrow ready for a "yes sir, Mr. Humphreys" on command.
And, let's not forget Allyson, large and in charge in her stiletos. There is no telling how much that deal cost and just today I was in the hospital listening to nurses being sent home for "low census" as their nurse manager assured them, "we gotta be productive, they are watching us closely". What a JOKE!
How productive is that brand spanking new NICU? It is a lonely unit with no docs or nurses. Ray is such a brilliant visionary, isn't he? This board should be ASHAMED of themselves. They know full well exactly what is going on and they allow it to continue.
We can only surmise that the board is IN on it all or else surely someone would do their job and put a stop to this irresponsible team of liars who identify them as the DRMC administration! When will it end??
A "coding seminar"... indeed? I wonder how Ray instructed the accounting department to "code" this little extravaganza on the books? Is there no end to this man's blatant disregard for public trust?
Ray is a "con-man" pure and simple. Literally run out of Hattiesburg, Ray stumbled into the Delta where he found a political system so steeped in corruption, ignorance and apathy, that even his malicious deeds would pale by comparison. He quickly "purchased" a few prominent Docs by offering them ultimate control and power over the DRMC dynasty in return for their support... a sweet deal for all!
Like a puppeteer, Ray could stay in the shadows, pulling the strings, while the "Docs" called the shots. Ray is the perfect front-man with his Bible-thumping humility and phony smile. Who would not trust this deacon of the church... surely he would not lie to us?
So who controls DRMC today you ask? Is it the board of trustees or supervisors? No, they are simply "pawns" who were hand-selected by Ray for their complicity and "silence". The power behind DRMC is a select group of physicians, formally known as the "horsemen". They tell Ray when to dance and when to "sit out".
The "horsemen" revel in Ray's stupidity, for at the end of the day, their jobs are secure. When Ray falls, they will be the first group to indict his character and they shall all rally to challenge his motives. At this point, Ray shall simply move on and we can only hope that we have derived some lesson from fallen empires.
