the med'l director decided that our in-pt hospice facility needed a facelift....and SHE felt qualified to be the interior designer.
she wanted new floors, new paint, new curtains- all in mauve/gray.
oh, and some structural renovations; big mistake taking down a supporting wall. :stone
one day the crew (who she hired) was putting down the floors and i KNOW i smelled marijuana.
i approached the supervisor of the crew w/my concerns.
initially he denied it.
but since he knew that i knew, he admitted that a couple of the guys had been smoking in the van.
very sternly i asked, "did you guys pick out this floor while you were high?"
he looked befuddled and quickly retorted "no! your boss picked everything out."
i called the med'l dir and told her the place smelled of pot, i had opened windows, sprayed the common area and what else should i do?
she just wanted them to finish the darned job and get out of there.
after all was done and said, we had too-short, dark mauve, foam-back drapes, mauve walls and a funky pattern gray and mauve floor.
the place looked like a ******* funeral parlor.
just what our actively-dying patients needed.
i honestly think a couple of them died sooner than expected, just to get out of there!
the next med'l director who came, not only was experienced in hospice & palliative care, but hired professionals to do the whole place over.
it was lovely.
and the carrying wall that had been knocked down, was replaced so our 2nd floor wouldn't come crashing down....
