I would be worried that a trump voter would provide sub-standard care to people he or she deemed "undesireable" aka minorities, non-Christians, members of the LGTBQ community, foreigner, disabled people....basically non-Wasps.
This exactly. As Elkpark said, it's attitudes such as yours that necessitate this law.
Don't sound off to any higher up's just yet.
Just give your notice, once you've got another job.
Go to the Director of HR in person - forget email, calls, etc. -
and get that insurance straightened out at once. Let the HR tech or whatever it's called know that you appreciate his or her efforts but that you have to have insurance and just couldn't wait any longer to get it corrected. Stand there while it is corrected and get a receipt/copy with the right dates on it. Even if you are quitting.
Get your boss to intervene for you if necessary.
If any docs try to give you a hard time, just tell him or her or them that you are new, as they know.
Tell them you are doing your best and you expect them to treat you with the same dignity and courtesy that they expect from you. Say it nicely. Look them in the eye when you do it. Don't be menacing, do be frank and polite.
If anyone kicks you or otherwise assaults/batters you, call the police. Police.
Got it? Make a report. Go from there.
If they persist in being spoiled brats, just slow down. Intentionally slow down.
If they remark on your slowness, explain that the animosity and undermining of your self-respect that you feel from them has made you have to force yourself to concentrate more closely on your work and that has slowed you down because you are feeling ill from the verbal abuse they are dishing out.
Or just try laughing. They'll be puzzled by it and maybe even will ask you about it, which will have successfully changed the subject.
Sushi????? They don't have time to teach but they have time for sushi?
I guess you might let someone higher up know how your experience has been, once you are all squared away (have another job). You might be offered a supervisor of OR position.
Losing a child is such an unimaginable tragedy and my heart goes out to any parent who has had to experience such a devastating loss.
I can definitely understand suing if you want to have someone accept responsibility/accountability and to acknowledge wrongdoing (if it took place) and I can also understand wanting to be compensated for the of cost bereavement counselling, loss of wages due to being unable to work during a period of time and for other necessary care/support that follows in the wake of such a tragedy. However seeing that someone is suing for almost double-digit millions (which is an insane amount of money) makes me glad that I live and work in a country where healthcare professionals aren't sued. Here, a patient can definitely report licensed healthcare professionals to the licensing and oversight authority but you can't sue or be sued for zillions.
I can't help it, when I hear of cases similar to this one, the large amount of money makes it seem slightly mercenary to me. You can't assign a dollar value to a human life and attempting to do so in fact has the opposite effect on me. To me, it devalues life when it's viewed in terms of a windfall.
What makes it even more unappealing to me is that if I understand this correctly, a rather large percentage of a potential settlement goes to the lawyers? If I got that part right, it serves as a powerful incentive to file even more big $ law suits (compared to if the legal team were paid a more modest fixed fee).
On a societal scale, the prevalence of law suits in the healthcare industry is bound to ultimately increase the cost of healthcare. I think it's quite unfortunate. Frankly, I think it's a sick system.
didn't need money until now.
Some very conservative branches of Islam (ex. Salafism), Judaism (ex. Ultra Orthodox and Hasidism), and Christianity don't allow unrelated males and females to mix at all. Ultra Orthodox and Hasidic Jewish men have made the news for refusing to sit next to women on planes. Some New York City public pools have been sued for holding single-sex swimming sessions.
ABORTION IS LEGAL. I'm so tired of people ringing their hands over a perfectly legal, acceptable, necessary medical procedure because it makes them uncomfortable! It doesn't matter how it makes you feel. It literally only matters to the person having the abortion, her healthcare provider and whomever she chooses to involve.
This would be like Jehovah's Witnesses trying to make blood transfusions illegal because they disagree with them. It's asinine.
And something being a small part of the overall service of an entity does not make it insignificant.
The single most effective way to reduce the number of abortions is access to safe and affordable contraception. PP provides that and has been doing so for a century.
Pro-life people like OC understand that. Forced pregnancy people don't care because the "real" issue is control of women's sexual behavior and has nothing to do with reverence for life.
YES lol-it is a female hospitalist and she is sometimes very good at throwing nurses under the bus, others she acts like your best friend.
Sometimes our patients are having the worst day of their lives. They're frightened, they're frustrated, and acting out may be the one way they have of feeling like they have some sort of control. As much as it may not look that way, in our relationships with our patients, the power is disproportionately ours, and that can be hard to swallow for the one without the power. Indeed, we sometimes feel like we are powerless and have to kowtow to get those patient satisfaction score, which makes us want to act out a little, too.
In times like these, it's very important to understand that people may be dealing inappropriately with their anxieties and stress because they just don't know any other way. Nor is it wrong to step away a moment, take a cleansing breath, and keep in mind that some of these people were probably jerks long before we ever met them, and will be long after they're discharged.
I have wondered if I have an allergy as well. Twice when receiving it, I have had a weird hot/flushing type reaction within a few minutes of receiving it. My skin never has any reaction at the test site though.
There is so much science doesn't understand about our immune systems and miscarriage, especially why some women (like myself) have recurrent miscarriages. It is scary to have my body injected with any foreign substances right now unless doing so offers a benefit that outweighs my risk of another miscarriage.
I should be finding out tomorrow whether my baby has a heartbeat. Going by my history, there is about a 60% chance it will be another missed miscarriage. If this is a viable pregnancy, I am going to do everything possible to protect my baby and keep it alive. Avoiding unnecessary exposures to substances that have not been proven safe is just instinctual to me.
Hmm, interesting use of the royal "we", when only 1 author is listed.
Do you mean "disciplinary" or "disciplined"?
Different isn't always better but there is some food for thought here.
