Again,where are the lawsuits? Who died for lack of proper care? You know all about it so lets see the evidence. Very short bible study huh?

The result of leadership without a conscience.
Ego, greed and just plain cruelty...how could anyone heal in that environment.
My hope is UPMC finds a better way...rehires the many dedicated, talented people who kept trying to truly care for patients under the worse possible circumstances.
They were and remain the core of what should have been happening there.
Every one of the leadership needs to go...they let this happen.

well said! Thank you! and Doc, it would be a Hippa violation to discuss things here, the families have suffered enough when you have young nurses with no clinical experience, so called leaders who majored in NICOTINE 101, so no mentors, bad things happen, trust me This thread is to somehow help the people who stayed loyal to Lakeshore, and lost their jobs with no warning

Greed is Good. If I can increase my paycheck by laying off a few redneck rubes...so be it. And all a union would have done is take money out your paycheck and watch as your fired. NYS is an employee at will state. Get used to no job security and high unemployment rates..suckers

It is in no way a violation to tell us who died as you say and it would not be a violation to show us where the lawsuits are that would or should be filed as a result of gross negligence.

<quoted text>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?
I clearly said that I am not going there for blood work, I only see my cardiologist every 6 months but I do have all the blood work ordered by my primary also sent to my cardiologist so yes in 6 months, he had nothing, and I was never notified by the dr who received by blood work in error either. I did spend quite a bit of time at the lab about a month ago to clear this up but then when I went to another dr in buffalo last month he had no results from my blood work from two weeks before. That is true so stop calling me a liar, what do you work in the lab or something? The Dr who offered me a settlement was Dr. Sabir, and it was during a meeting with him and Mr. Wild who was very helpful to my situation. Also, how would my insurance company know that the wrong dr was getting my blood work, when I dont even see that Dr.? That makes no sense at all. And I will go all the way to Hamburg because Brooks has too many ties with Lake Shore.

Doc, give it a rest cause you are tooo nosie for your own good.Roc is right because people have a right to their privacy even if they are dead or badly injured by incompetent young inexperienced nursing staff, and thats a law called HIPPA! They are increasing the size of the ER at Lakeshore for more space , privacy, and separate area for dangerous psych patients from Buffalo. The area which formerly housed med surg patients will be for psych, cause theres not enough room on the current psych area. Any patients needing admission will be transferred to other hospitals. So , if you are not able to work in ER or psych, those folks will be laid off. Hopefully some of the well paid executives will be sent packing today or tomorrow. Happy MEMORIAL day everybody! At least there might be more nice homes for sale in this area

You of course have verifiable proof of that correct? Put it out here,lets see the EFT records which you claim to have? You must work in the payroll department right? When was the last time you contacted Homeland Security with your concerns and to whom did you speak with?

The law is called HIPAA. Are ROC and you the same person or different ignorant "know-it-alls"?

In other words you do not have verifiable proof correct? Now where are the malpractice lawsuits and the wrongful death lawsuits?

They continue to blame everyone for their own incompetence and take no responsibility.
There are hospitals that are succeeding under the same rules...thriving and taking excellent care of patients, communities and have dedicated, happy employees who feel respected for the professionals they are.
It is incredible that they are not held accountable and dedicated professionals are traumatized....
If the current leadership thinks Hamot does not know who is really responsible for the financial disaster...think again.
Some greedy leaders should begin packing their laptops...

Rumor has it over 90 people will be gone from Lakeshore and 30 or 40 from Brooks before it is all said and done. This has nothing to do with parking lots. It has everything to do with obnoxious spending. From what I heard at the Lakeshore ED opening, they leased office space in Fred and pay thousands for it to sit vacant after Lawrence got let go. He got a million dollars to get fired.

I heard he spent several thousand dollars to furnish the place. Nice to get a million dollars to leave, while the people who get laid off will lose homes, go without food, who knows. I believe he is still in the area in a lovely lake front home he built, but he needs to be tried and go to prison.
