I'm sure the move will proceed without a hitch with less employees. I foresee no problems...

I doubt some old lady was dropped in the floor. People just trying to get things started.

It did happen. Administration and the head of surgery came in to try and smooth things over with the family. Nobody has to make up the crazy shit that goes on at that place.

All hospitals. An elderly stroke pt. was raped by a visitor years ago at Southeast. Where you have humans, you have human error, mechanical failure and sometimes human depravity. Patients come out of anesthesia swinging, or hallucinating everywhere.
Was this open-heart surgery?

I have worked at both Southeast and St. Francis. Yes, things happened there too, but PBRMC is a scary, scary place. Don't kid yourself otherwise. It has no business with critically ill patients, routine surgeries, or routine care for that matter.

I feel the same way about St. Francis@Cape. Check out Cape Topix, the posters feel that way too...

How will this town survive without a hospital? I think that patients survive and are discharged alive everyday...

I hope that Black River (Copper Top) does a better job and bumps up the standards to a less horrifying level.

I agree that St. Francis has it's sucky parts but I would be ok having a routine surgery there (gallbladder, appendectomy..) I would travel to St. Louis for open heart, neuro or joint replacement.

so, you would prefer nothing offered@ here, because BRMC is NOT planning on heart, orthos,neuro or ICU beds and won't be adding rooms for another year , with 50 beds within five years. It will be very limited care, but you will be transferred as long as the place you want to go will accept your method of pay

You got it. I'm trying to figure out why you're so quick to defend the place...if you work there, you have to know how horrible it is. You can't write it off to human error. Poor management, bad doctors, outright incompetence, laziness, filth and neglect. The only nurses that have an ounce of conscientiousness are the new grads. The "experienced" nurses respond to emergencies like a herd of water buffalo awaking from a tranquilizer dart.

I've had my ups and downs with this hospital for many years. I had my kids there, plus saw my parents and grandparent die there. Well, under a different name, but same hospital. I've been in the hospital several times in the last few years and I've noticed that there are problems in different departments. As long as they are understaffed, you will continue to see a lot of the same problems. They keep the older higher paid employees on who cause a lot of the problems and neglect the younger, quicker, employees who earn less. Why pay someone two and three times more than an entry level employee to sit when they should be retiring? These old people are just that because they do very little, grow fat and should be retired. That's a lot of the problem.

No, I don't work there. We have to have a hospital or three in this town. I am realistic, BRMC is not going to serve the needs anytime soon with three or fifty beds. I question every time someone states the current hospital should not be used.I will have to take your word they have long-term employees. It is curious if they are moving into a new building in a few months, why aren't they having a big push to hire more than a few nurses?

Even though they've advertised this huge state of the art facility, it's my understanding they will only be opening a couple of floors. They've laid off well over 100 people in less than a year. So they have even less staff than before.....when they were already understaffed! There should be traing going on and hiring being done. Unless you are gonna be at the mercy if the travelers.

I had heard that no one was hired back, if they wait past six months, then seniority and pay rate starts back at entry level at most large companies. It's how unions are busted-but they don't have one do they?
I find it very curious why they aren't hiring. That is training, orientation, etc. that is needed wherever you hire new employees. McDonald's does it , has it down to a science, I would think it was even more important in a hospital...
