Westlake - Millions in Debt.

Creates a NEW Management POSITION!

Assistant Director of Nursing.

Seems that the Daughter of a Top management member has lost her job and needs another where she makes good money and won't have to work nights and weekends.

SO..... Yea - lets create a new one. We have plenty of money! Really, we have people mowing our yard for free -- so we saved a few $ there, right?

I know, I know - Let's post this job on Friday NIGHT of the Memorial Day Weekend. THEN, we can close the posting on Sunday Night so that NO ONE Sees it.

She will be the only one to apply and we would have no other option than to hire her. Yeah, that'll work! That's the plan!

Well....
Wait for The Rest of the Story.
Well

That's how things are done around here. Same goes on in the school system. I hear a science job is open. Wait and see if the high school doesn't wind up with three science teachers with the last name Willis.

Yes respect does start at home. Yes respect should be given....to those that deserve and earn it. Sometimes the truth hurts and the truth is that the "good 'ol boy" system is alive and well in Adair county. To believe other wise is very naive. I know for a fact that is how most of the city, county, and state jobs in this town are filled. It's all depends on who knows who, who owes who a favor, who knows what on who, and who is related to who. It's small town politics. Now there are people who just want to put others down and are jealous of what some have so they will make up what ever they can to make them look bad and discredit what they have achieved in life. If someone decides to speak out about how a position is created just to do a favor for someone, when the company is up to its neck in debt, that doesn't mean they are jealous or being disrespectful. Simply put...it turns their stomach and it should.

just fyi, his daughter HAS a job, and if you had any real understanding of what was going on, you would have known that. Just saying... Quit bashing good people when you have no idea what is really going on.

Who? His daughter?
Who's daughter are you referring too?
Have real understanding that they have never (last 15 years anyway) had an asst. DON.
They have fewer patients than ever, meaning less need to create a new mgmt position.
They posted on a holiday Friday and closed on a holiday Monday - 3 days later.
So what don't we understand?

Hoping it wasn't true but it is so true. Created a management position (Assistant Director Of Nursing) for his daughter. With very few patients(8 tops), & so many fired, laid off, closed cafeteria & ICU, can't afford lawncare, millions in debt this all seems unethical. This is what the ole group did. Shame on you! Hope you can sleep @ night but then again your position was created by Ann when you came to WL. Politics @ it's finest is all you can say & it just keeps going, & going. But now we know the truth & how all this works. What goes around, comes around.
please

Please tell me this is not true! Please tell me you are just stirring the pot cause you are bored and looking for drama. If it's true, how could the board let this happen? If it's true, I think every last person who got the "I'm sorry we have to let you go" speech should take their happy butts over to his office and have a talk with him. I am disgusted!

Apparently - it is NOT currently TRUE.
She got a Government Day Job so no longer needs one.
Lets see if they go thru w/ the position now.

Ok first off a BSN is a RN. Next the previous don had 3unit coordinators that did everything for her, a house supervisor each day and a full time secretary. Now there are no unit coordinators. Gidget is the house supervisor during the day and she does not have a secretary. The floors are no longer overstaffed with nurses. They are appropriately staffed. So I think we are saving a lot of money by doing away with positions and replacing them with one position. I know people that are being interviewed for the position so yes its still on.

Funny how you was previously required to have a MSN to be a DON at WRH, or at least be actively obtaining the degree. Now we have people/personnel who are not meeting this criteria. Go figure, politics at it's best, Adair County style....
the jokes on you

1st you are not required to have a MSN according to JCAHO, mgmt experience will suffice and or working on your MSN.

2nd you guys are just waiting for the doors to close. Those of you working there should be fired. His daughter had her job shortly after she was told she would not have a job next year in the school system. Even before the school year actually ended on May 17th. The job was posted what last week. Maybe she just needs a better job>>>

3rd in case you didnt hear today. the positiion will be eliminating 2 coordinators. no one bothered to mention that!!

what makes me absolutely sick are those people who claim to be her friend and Christians who apparently didn't read all of the ten commandments. How about thou shall not bear false witness. YOU KNOW there is no truth to was you have started. you completely lied and made that up because you didn't understand the decision to hire a asst DON. I think you are upset because people can finally see you for your fake, lying self. You have fooled alot of people acting like you really care, giving glory to God while you lie about people and look down on them. Let me be the first to tell you thats not how a Christian acts. And dont worry about tell me I am not acting very Christian like....at least I am not lying to myself and others pretending to be a saint. Most Christians I know dont talk about people, lie, CHEAT, or cuss. Karma is real!! You will eventually fall. If you were a Christian you would be apologizing for the hurt you have caused.

AND ONE MORE THING...

in case you didnt realize...the hospital was ran down by rusty and the his stooges that paid themselves very well, while everyone else suffered. then spectrum sucked it dry. the people still there are just trying to survive. unfortunately, it will take a lot to get the place back to functioning on its own. that wont happen overnight. everyone is sacrficing to keep it going... and if you dont like it there...move on...why would you stay at such a horrible place.....unless you just cant get a job anywhere else. guess thats true for a few of you..
