Does this affect any members here?
If so, have you been given any clues on how this may affect your jobs?
Were you, as staff, given any clues a sale was in the picture?
Do you think CAMC will buy St. Francis in Charleston?
Do you think a Huntington facility will buy Putnum General?
What about St. Joseph's in Parkersburg, is a merger possible with Camden-Clark?
Why do you think some of the physicians in these areas stopped admitting patients to these facilities? Was it nursing care or the lack thereof, or do you think administration was unresponsive to the needs of certain physicians?
What about the new cancer center proposed to open at St. Francis?
STAY AWAY FROM LIFEPOINT
They bought our succesful non- profit Duke affiliate and they are quickly destroying it with cuts in supplies , workers, services , RN's, CNA's, RRT's,
CRNA's, Unit secretaries,etc..
The pt per RN ratio is going up in the CVICU.
The floor nurses are sometimes 12-1 even the surgical floors.
GET AWAY FROM THEM, THEY arenot About the pt's or the employees
THIS is a money seeking corporation not a health
care community minded org in my opinion/ experience.
