<quoted text>I in no way, shape or form asked for sympathy or pitied myself. It is an HONOR to be the caretaker of my relative. She is a wonderful person and if I have to live in a subpar area surrounded by filthy drug addicts, welfare urchins and idiots like yourself to provide for her in her last days, that is fine with me. I AM comforted to hear you don't work with patients, which leads me to believe you are probably an uneducated, minimum wage earning office employee who feels superior to other uneducated, minimum wage earners due to working in a healthcare establishment. Apparently that six-week coding and billing course bumped your self esteem up to delusional and grandiose levels.

And you do not "favor" complex sentence structure. You don't even comprehend simple sentence structure. I am sure you do know what hearing a jackass bray sounds like since you are aware of how your own voice sounds. And you must love the sound of it because you talk out your ass about things you know nothing about.
I know you hate your life and you resent the the fact you are responsible for caring for a sick relative. I know you have no other options and are likely getting a government check for what you're doing. I know you are likely living in her house and managing her money which is the reason you stay. I know you have been an under achiever and feel unappreciated for the small contributions you've made. I know you are a lonely bitter person wondering why the choices you've made in life have not been successful. I know you will have no purpose or place in this world once she passes and the rest of the family thinks you are a pathetic opportunist living off the scraps of someone else's life.They are thankful you're not in their basement or attic criticizing there successes. I know you have isolated yourself by your bitterness and resentment and want to lash out at those in authority because you feel you deserve more. Relax, you don't.

Showing your true and insufferable ignorance. I work 48 hours a week at a job I landed right out of college. I choose to take on overtime to save money. I own and have paid for my own home, which through smart financial planning is paid off. The entire family takes shifts. One person, not me, oversees her finances-- which are made up of wise savings and a pension. None of us have ever received any public assistance (which I'm sure you soaked up before, during and probably after your unfortunate and ill-advised placement in healthcare. I'm sure you still qualify for government cheese and ER visits on your meager salary). We do this out of love. Her biggest fear in being placed in a nursing home to be abused by people such as yourself, and we don't want that for her.

Your delusions of grandeur have really thrown you into a state of complete psychosis. The only thing you know about me is that I am infinitely better than you in every way.

Sounds like Huntington hasn't been so bad. You've kept the meager job you started with, no advancement but you haven't gotten fired. The family is smart enough not to let you control her money. You have your home but no one in it and you feel superior For your small successes.Still, you want to play the martyr and resent when others don't buy into your delusions. I've got the picture. Every family has the overbearing know it all who manipulates the misfortune of others to bring attention to themselves. Your not special, just noisy and boring. You love her but just want credit for it.The hospital allows you a forum to act out, the rest of the family roll there eyes and apologize to the staff later. It's a common dance of little consequence.

They are going to be ticked off when they realize that if HIMG ran, they must have had a good reason! Things won't change until the top is removed. Winds of change are coming... Thank goodness

Funny, change is def coming. Cynthia is holding nurses accountable and they don't like it that they can't just sit around on their fat butts anymore. The complainers are usually the ones who don't do their job. If your not happy then go work somewhere else.

Cornerstone staffs 4:1, not counting call-ins. Case mix index is higher than most LTACs.Keep working in several states, No contract nurses being used locally. 20 years on the road, really? Must be a reason for that?? In any case, thanks for confirming that the local LTAC is better staffed than any you've seen. It's still a new model in WV and not as well understood and perhaps, appreciated , as it should be. Like I said, it's often a patients last chance for survival after an illness that has been complicated and prolonged. Twenty years ago,when you started in the system, mortality was higher and expectations lower. Times change and the bar has been raised, at least in Huntington.
I'm not trying to contradict you but there numerous contract nurses working here in Huntington. CHH has quite a few contract nurses.

True, in Huntington, but not at Cornerstone. I'm sure CHH has many contract nurses. Its a side issue to the point that LTACs have a separate mission of allowing what is often a last chance at recovery. Every patient there is an outlier. All have had an adverse outcome or complication in the acute care setting and have exhausted the resources of that hospital. The LTAC is a bridge for the ICU to a rehab/NH or home. Regarding nursing, it's a tough job. The patients tend to be both acutely and chronically ill and families tend to be exhausted. The LTAC model is not well understood, hence the "tombstone" nickname. Medicare created the model to decompress the DRG losses on the acute side and allow a chance for recovery of the chronically critically ill. The alternative is increased discussion of palliative or terminal care.

It's dreadful that people who are facing the loss of a family member don't interrupt their grief process to consider what a burden their behavior has on you. They really need to understand that their loved one is not as important as your need to being comfortable in your chosen workplace.
as a employee its very importent that i who am working in the work place be happy and comfortable in my work place if you have a problem with it get over it

My dad was in this hospital after chh out him into respiratory failure. I can honestly say visit you loved ones as much as possible and as random as possible. They are filthy and dirty. The nurses are worthless. They used to steal my dads fentanyl patches cause he had a vent in and I guess they thought that we wouldnt check. They also used to let him sit there in feces and everytime we would come in he would stink. We even came in one day and his oxygen tubing was off of him trach and he was holding it and they had his machine that tells you oxygen levels was turned off. When we turned it in his oxygen level was 70. The only thing good about this hospital was the respiratory staff, dennis , joe, and jared. They are great at their jobs and besides prayer and GOD the only reason my dad is off the vent and the trach. The rest of you lazy azzes need to get up and do your job and stop trying to pedal pu55y while working,

If HIMG doesn't cover anymore then it's a disopute over money.

With HIMG it is NEVER about anything but money.

Cornerstone hospital is the worst excuse for patient care I have ever seen. They tie some patients hands to their beds, and I have seen this with my own eyes. The place does stink, and I am talking about the smell. I am not writing this to get into an abusive verbal arguement back and forth with somebody. I am just stating facts.

Yes patient's wrists are restrained when they are a danger to themselves by pulling lines etc. As you can see upstream here, someone walked in on the father with his trach tubing in his hand. Think someone else put it there? If he'd had his wrists restrained he wouldn't have been able to reach far enough to pull anything. Not done very often though.

The nurse had also turned his machine that lets the desk know his 02 was dropping turned off cause it was near the end of his shift.
