This article is painfully true. After 25 years working in an acute care setting I was forced to retire. I foolishly made an appointment to voice my concerns with our Vice President of Nursing. I naively believed she would care about my concerns about safe patient care. After all she had 18 years of prior experience of working the ER both as staff and as the manager,surely she would understand my concerns about unsafe staffing levels. NOT! her answer to me was, " perhaps Benefis Hospital is not for you." I walked out, went to HR and started the paperwork to retire. They lost a damn good RN and now 5 years later its only gotten worse. Meanwhile management continues to get their bonuses!
