Dear 6:03... The snooze isn't the only paper Hud has close to his heart (which must be somewhere around his backside.)
The Lowell Sun hasn't told the whole story here in Massachusetts either. They have had people write them to give them the real scoop on this dump but won't acknowlege they even received the tips. I guess they don't believe in investigative reporting. Where is Geraldo when you need him!!!
The only time they report anything even remotely bad connected to the hospital is when a Doctor gets slammed by the Board of Registration of Medicine. The hospital administration is barely mentioned when all along they have condoned such bad behaviors by not actively coming down on the people who are truely ruining the place's reputation.
When you consider that 5 doctors at Nashoba were reprimanded by the Board, Merrimack Valley is being sued by the Nurses Assoc. and ACLU, the Department of Public Health is investigating Nashoba for the fiasco in Radiology, Nashoba asks for a tax abatement (and by the way is approved for it) because they can't afford them though Essent is supposedly so solvent, Essent and the town of Ayer are being sued to halt construction of a new hospital by the citizens, and both have had multiple CEO's, one would think any reporter would begin to put 2 and 2 together and come up with Essent has serious issues...but noooooo. It's all roses here too.
Just because it isn't reported fellas doesn't mean it isn't so. The community knows and is staying away from both Nashoba and Merrimack Valley. I'm surprised the CEO'S here haven't taken a page from the Paris book of PR and announced their wait times are non-existent as well. To me that just means the place is so bad no one wants to be treated there.
There are no wait times here because the patients are all in a non-Essent ER.
Emerson Hospital ought to thank Essent for their increased census, as Clarksville and others are thanking their stars here. They haven't seen this kind of influx of patients ever!
