If the federal government kept us this much in the dark, heads would roll and outrage would be heard from all media outlets. In the federal system, there are protections for whistle-blowers. There are also protections for the rights of individuals. Not here. Apparently:
Should you say that you are understaffed, you are liable for a three day suspension.
If you contribute to this blog, you can be suspended or fired.
If you have the misfortune to not recognize Andrew and complain in his presence, you can be fired.
The soon-to-be-published (real-soon-now) personnel manual is nebulous in its scope. One would assume that the manual would have been transposed from one of their other hospitals, which would have made it appear upon the purchase. But despite its absence, it is used to justify almost anything, as is the lack of a cohesive policy and procedure manual.
So I will do my part...my part in creating a forum that allows the expression of an unimpeded dissenting opinion.
I will not release personal information.
I may alter some comments to change identifying characteristics, but not the context nor the intent.
I will continue this forum as a part of this community.
