I am referring to the tolerance part. I do not by any means support striking, I think it has seen it's day for effectiveness. My idea was to find out if...
Nurses feel that it is just the way it has always been and we will just let it continue,
If management has just worn the Nursing profession down or
Is there really a way that Nurses can get what we need for our patient's and ourselves, yet still meet the fiscal means that hospitals need to survive.
I hope this helps.
i don't believe for one moment, that hospitals will not survive if they don't take shortcuts elsewhere (which of course, is the nsg dept)....have you ever seen the salaries of the ceo's and other bigwigs?
no, most hospitals are doing quite well and it's plain, old-fashioned greed and disrespect that creates the shoddy decisions they make.
imo, if nurses did indeed, refuse to take this b.s. and walk out, the hosp would be in for a rude awakening.
and the paradox is, once they started treating nurses w/the respect that is so lacking (w/safe staffing, pay hikes, autonomy, support and much more appreciation), they'd likely get a bigger return on their investments-meeting or exceeding their fiscal goals quite nicely, thank you.
to me, it's good, old common sense.
but that's me.
what do i know?
i'm only a nurse.
