    [color=#483d8b]at our staff meeting yesterday, our supvr. wanted to talk about our pg results. she started off by saying they were good, we all said " we don't even care and we don't want to hear abou them". she looked a little shocked for a minute but then moved on to the next item!

    i think unless the visit was so terribly awful, only certain kind of people write those nasty letters!!! in my opinion anyway.....

    some of them i just laugh because what they complain about doesn't make sense half the time.....

    "I know more about pancreatitis than that ER doctor. Get some doctors that actually know something."

    BTW, nursebrandie, I love your little dog and your happy sig line and party picture. Reminds me to think of warm, fuzzy puppies and good friends when the job gets me down.

    We got one last month that said:
    Get some doctors and nurses that speak English!!!!

    We do have ALOT of foreign nurses, and some of them have VERY thick accents.

    We need to put up a sign in triage: If you leave the ER a)better b)not worse c)alive then we did our job.
    We've beat this issue to death, but it still gets me riled up! I can do my best to be Suzie Sunshine, and people just don't get it that there are in the ER! I feel like it goes along with the general decrease in level of respect/care for others in society.
    How about a new button (instead of Press Gainey buttons) GET OVER YOURSELF!!!

    God I sound bitter

    Press Ganey is a crude organization that knows nothing about the hospital mentality. The question they ask on the survey sometimes has nothing to do with the IQ of the patient so the patient makes a wild uneducated guess.

    I am in Discharge Planning and our scores all always rock bottom because the patient confuses discharge with our department. They had to wait too long after the doctor wrote the order to get on road, or the staff was rushing the out of the hospital before they go their dinner. Crap like that. That has nothing to do with Discharge Planning, but our salary increases suffer from low reports. Press Ganey needs to get a grip on communication levels for the 6th grade level.

    Press Ganey doesn't realize that people go to the ER, not as medically necessity need, but as a social gathering. Much like going to a tail-gate party. Why they bring in their Big Mac and KFC and have a picnic, talking and complaining to other unsick patients on how long the wait is before they can get to a doctor. I wouldn't doubt if they didn't have a lottery going to see how long it takes to see the doctor.
