Bahahaha I love it!

Can we add:

Patient satisfaction ratings ... Do you really think they're all that competent to rate me when my narc naïve pt has Dilaudid 2mg q2 PRN?

Patient Caring Touch ... I'll caring touch you, JCAHO. There! I said it! JCAHO JCAHO JCAHO!! Send your flying monkeys!

Tricare's Performance Triad ... AKA, do as I say, not as I do.

Work-life balance ... If you're not working to the point where you have no life, my hospital does not consider this a good "balance".

Customer Service Representative ... Yes, send the whiners, malingerers and sick call rangers to me. I promise, you won't hear from them again. :sneaky:

Give me time... I know I can think of more!!

HCAPS healthcare consumers assessment of providers and systems, oh really? can I rate these consumers on their quietness, cleanliness, and receptiveness to teaching? because we deserve more money for treating these selfish, self destructive people who make stupid lifestyle choices.

There's an idea to reduce cost that I like. Make the patients' expected cost of contribution to the hospital bill based on the average score they received from their care providers. Very compliant, humble, and appears willing to make lifestyle changes? The bill is free. Horrible, condescending, violent, and flat out admits that he refuses to take his medicine? The bill is paid entirely by the patient.

Maybe these noncompliant idiots would care more about taking care of themselves if it hit them even harder in the wallet when they didn't...
