Brittany,
You are no Edward R. Murrow either.

You do; however, have a point. There are many doctors and nurses with a moral obligation to speak up, and some have done so to no avail. Nurses see what happens when they speak out. The job is stressful enough without incurring the added stress of harassment.

This corporation is well skilled at keeping it's employees in fear and easily controlled as a result. Nurses have families and need their job. Most live paycheck to paycheck and have to choose their families as their first priority.

Even those employee surveys are a farce. With all the identifying info to fill out they might as well sign their name to it. Nothing anonymous about it. The corporation is well aware that I only spoke the truth. They do not care. Patient care is bottom of the list of their priorities

I think you know it is true as well or you would not have bothered with a post that rivals the length of the novel War and Peace.

I had my daughter in the er one evening, she has a tumor on her optical nerve. She was having a severe blinding headache that was leaving her weak and partially numb on one side of her body. After being checked, the stuck us in a freezing cold room. I asked for a blanket for her. it took them an HOUR to bring it. After 4 hours in that room, with no dr coming in, I went looking. He was sitting behind the counter, feet propped up on desk, laughing and talking to nurses. I said " Excuse me, but I have been here with my daughter for over 4 hours. Can you tell me how much longer it is going to be?" He looked at me and laughed and said "AWWWWw i dont know, might be another 4 hours" I immediately left and took her to cookeville.

Next morning I called an filed a complaint.

Overton county residents deserve competent safe care, nothing less. They deserve top management who have their safety as their number one priority not the size of their bonuses. They deserve ownership that will staff and equip the facility and place safety as number one priority and recognize that they have an obligation to patients, not only their shareholders.

They don't want competent nurses they want yes people, people that don't ask questions and just do what there told. Patient care is at the bottom of their list of things to do.
Tell me sister, why do they take this direction. I am at a loss??????

Livingston is a good hospital. People who post stuff like this is just mad because they probably got fired or something. Kathy Saxon is a great person. She does care. Stop this stupidity.
Ashburn, Virginia..Sounds like Kathy is close to you, and I am sure she has many wonderful traits. Perhaps you could ask her if she is putting the lives of he community she serves first...This community has grave reservations. Maybe she will listen to you. She probably wants your approval and may listen. Tell her to do the right thing for Oveton County. Tell her they deserve the best.

Grandma, I implore you to look at real threats to your community. Ignore idle gossip especially when it is directed at the female, not the male, who has multiple partners and spreads more disease than the female. Bypass these stereotypes and see the real threat. Demand competent safe health care.

Oh, do not dispare, I am sure your Kathy Saxon person will be Ok. It is the people in the community she serves who will not fare very well. You will fare well, as her descendant. Two sides to every story. You would fare well to investigate both stories, or not.

Obtain a PCP that will refer you to competent specialists and are not bound to local docs that care only about their financial gain and nothing about your health.

I am only 15 years old and find this gossip immature and childish. This is highschool behavior. My mother works at Livingston Regional Hospital and she is the reason to this very day I have shoes on my feet and a roof over my head. You all should be ashamed. What kind of rolemodels are you being for you kids? The hospital didn't kill them. If they were going to die, they were going to die let it be God's will. This is downright ridiculous. This town would complain if they had golden assholes. All hospitals have problems, and yes Livingston may be understaffed at times, but what can you expect at the size of this town? My mother works 12+ hours a day everyday. This is foolish. If you have a real problem, take it up with the mayor in person instead of hiding behind your computer screens afraid to reveal your identity.
If for one minute I thought this was true, I would say, your mom would say something much different. She would say, give me staff, to take care of my patients, give me working equipment to assess and treat my patients, give me adequate staff, equipment, and time to serve my patients. If you are true take it up with the mayor. I smell hipocracy, big time.

We know who you are John. You are crazy as ever and do need to be on meds or hospitalized. You are pissed because you dont work there anymore. You should go ahead and say who you are. It can be proven who are you and maybe that's what LRH should do and then hit you up for slander. I think you are stupid and actually sad. I was told about this thread but thought there's no way a professional adult would stup to such ignorance guess I was wrong. Why did you ask "who you are" to Brittany's post. She posted her name as Brittany sounds like a real name to me.
You will get what you deserve. You sound obscessed with these people at LRH. Get on with your life. Looks like all you do is sit at your computer and rant on about LRH. You are sick.
Hey, what do I deserve? Pray tell. Define professional . I always thought it meant to do the right thing and provide the most state of the art care. I am not afraid of you .
