Okay, who's been talking...

Have you noticed a quieter bunch in X-Ray, lately? It's like they stapled their mouths shut. According to their director, they are not to:

1. Discuss policy with anyone. In the department, out of the department, at home, whatever....

2. Be friendly with the radiologists.

3. Gather in groups. (There goes the orgy...!)

4. Talk to nurses, security, doctors, housekeepers, greeters, or stray dogs about anything that is non-essential to performing their job. (So be sure to ask them how things are going: They implode!)

...and they haff veys of finding out....

Thought that meeting was secret and that we were all on double secret probation?

Guess we're living in a police state! No freedom of speech or peaceful assembly here!

Hello??? Why is anyone surprised things have gotten quiet in X-Ray? Don’t you know Essent has filed a lawsuit (a countersuit, actually) charging Red River Radiologists with a bunch of things related to their joint venture? I think you’re going to see everyone be a little extra careful for a while. The real story will come out when the courts get involved.

Have contacted the ACLU about the legality of this "you may not speak or you will be fired" rule newly made by the xray director. Waiting for a response. I smell class action lawsuit!

So much for Andrew's open-door-all-suggestions-are-welcome. If that's so, where's a suggestion box?

All the references to Hitler and that dreadful time period was exactly what I was thinking when I was reading this. Actually before I read any of this. It didn't work with Hitler and it won't work here either.

Hey guys...I don't understand... You gripe and complain about this company and how bad it is to work for them but yet you still do?

For some of us with families, it's the "lesser of evils". Drive, or put up with it. Doesn't mean we have to like it.

Not everybody who is posting here still/did work for PRMC. Some are no longer there and some were patients. As to those with families, at what cost is it to them? What about your emotional state of mind having to deal with this type of abuse? What about your dignity? What about your profession and allowing this kind of abuse to be dumped on it? Yes, the drive is something to consider but so are a lot of other things. As long as this type of treatment is tolerated, it will continue.

Some of us like this town. Some of like what we do. We just want PRMC to live up to its true potential which it is not right now.
I'm also the eternal optimist; it has to get better, even if it must get worse first.

Yes, Paris is a lovely town. And, everyone at this facility can like what they do at other hospitals that will treat employees with dignity, respect and salaries and benefits that are compatible with the education, experience and demand that is currently on the nursing profession. As to the "true potential" or PRMC. Is it really there under the current administration and owners? Things got better under Hitler's regime...when it fell! Is that what it will come to here?

I had enough and left that horrible place, and have lived happily ever after since. It is just a shame I had to in the first place. That things cannot be fixed. They don't care what you like, or how you think things should happen even if you ar right. I have seen way too much crap to continue to work for a company like this one.
