    Did all the doctors get a similar memo given to them regarding talking to the nurses? If not, I would have to say that this demeans the nurse and deifies the doctor. Send them the one Slowone posted!

    Forgive me if this sounds offensive, but I think the post failed to include the last memo on the list: "...and may I now offer you a BJ?"

    All of our staff has to go to a MANDATORY Class. "Changing Lemons into Lemonaide" which is about service recovery.
    ----After the idiot hits you in the face with his dinner tray this class teaches how to turn that into a good (Profitable) situation for the hospital. Basically smile and ask him what he would like on his next tray-----

    It's all about how the hospital can make money by getting "customers" to come back. Of course I always thought the goal in medicine was to "Heal" the patient, not turn him into a frequent flyer.. Hell what Do I know??

    We now have "SCRIPTING" classes also. We are supponsed to memorize what to say in each situation. "Hello, my name is Bambi, how may I assist you today" etc. I guess if you can't create androids to look like humans you must make your humans sound like androids.

    I keep hoping and hoping that I soon win the lottery so I no longer have to depend on a pay check. Than I go volunteer for the Red Cross or something where beng a nurse is appriciated.
