Is Brooks next? I hear all the expensive big wigs got to sit pretty all day while some long time employees were told to leave. I don't work there but I work close with these people. Very sad.

Remember Brooks has a union...Lake Shore dumb ass employees got talked out of the union 3 years ago ..now look at what happened...no job security..All the high paid COO s came from out of town and don't care about anyone at Lakeshore as long as they get their paychecks..so sad...

Hope the Observer has a story about it soon. Some one really needs to police Lakeshore.. who is gonna take care of the folks needing care;who is going to clean the place? Really sad what has happened to that place. The last thing I heard was the city is going to be sending homicidal mental patients out there cause BGH doesn't want psych there any more

Saturday employees volunteered to clean and landscape at LS because the lazy grounds crew cant handle it and some were thanked by getting laid off. Thank God Im not directly associated with these people. I hope UPMC comes through and cleans house of these over paid managers.

How many overpaid managers are getting laid off? If you look at the current Lake Shore nursing staff, there is no one with experience. They have gotten rid of the best and the brightest nurses over the last few years...thrown them out to the wolves for very stupid and untrue reasons. This is the health and safety of your loved ones who go there people, and you need to smarten up. Patients are dying , who didn't need to die!

Lake Shore Hospital has gone so far down hill, it is just sad. I had an incident two years ago in the ER with my husband, and the Dr offered me a settlement so I wouldnt take him to court. I have been going there for blood work over the last 10 months and they were sending my blood work to the wrong Dr. for the last 6 months. Last month when I went to the specialist in Buffalo, he did no have the results of my blood work, called Lake Shore and they refused to fax it to him, they told him they would read the numbers over the phone but would not fax it. So needless to say, my dr wants me to go to Quest lab now, and I believe that the drive to Hamburg is worth it. Jonathon Lawrence needed to go, but I still hear horrible things from the employess that work there. Its a shame

OMG! is this Mrs Lawrence? get tested! EVERYONE else at Lakeshore KNOWS, and has for a long time! Heres a hint ...you need a MASTERS degree in nursing to get the position, not an associate or a computer based bachelors degree..the other things people asked would be HIPPA violations! I have to go to Bible study now,bye!

What Doctor offered you the settlement? Why would you keep going there for blood work if there was a problem. Why go all the way to hamburg when we have one in Dunkirk? Blood work numbers are no longer faxed,they are sent via electronic means! You were never notified by the Doctor who was getting your blood workups in error either through your insurance company,medicaid,or medicare that there was an error? Cease and desist with the lies ok?
