Welcome to the Gulag.....7/4

Welcome to the gulag
(To the similar song by Guns 'N Roses. Only had to change one word!)

Welcome to the gulag
We got fun 'n' games
We got everything you want
Honey we know the names
We are the people that can find
Whatever you may need
If you got the money honey
We got your disease


In the gulag
Welcome to the gulag
Watch it bring you to your shun n,n,n,n,,n,n,,n,n,n,,n,n,,n knees, knees
I wanna watch you bleed

Welcome to the gulag
It gets worse here everyday
Ya learn ta live like an animal
In the gulag where we play
If you got a hunger for what you see
You'll take it eventually
You can have anything you want
But you better not take it from me

Corporate Compliance--I never thought that they would actually put out their 'disinformation'. The Big Lie is alive and well in Paris.

No, I wasn't avoiding releasing HIPAA information, I was keeping the faith with the contributors. Some of their information was too identifiable. In one particular case, the information that was given by the victim would be too easily recognised, and that is the reason for HIPAA: To protect the patient. Not this gaggle of prison guards. Besides, it was the individual herself that sent it in. While she may have the right to talk about it, I will not publish it--not when she might have considerable regret later--and not without some serious discussion. They might have, if she signed the right release.

And, the Amnisty: Trust me, and we'll forgive all the nasty things you said.....

One thing that is good has transpired: The Paris News is finally publishing commentary about the hospital. A few more, and I'll change the 'Snooze' link to 'News' on the site.

I told you this had the feel of Stalinist Russia.....

I thought that it stood for Fellowship of American College of Physicians?

I could be wrong--and most often am.

It doesn't matter.

I have learned something from the blog that no matter what has helped me to understand something.

You can't force people into caring. You can't give them the gift of caring. It's a gift from God.

The ones that have the gift, are blessed and don't know it because sometimes it feels like such a curse.

They medicate it away either with anti-anxiety meds, or recreational drugs. Or maybe they distance themselves until they can't find themselves anymore. They just get used up.

It takes all kinds to get goals accomplished. God has given us all different gifts.

What I do not know, is how to get people with these gifts together to come up with solutions instead of more problems. Everyone wants justice. Everyone wants to be understood.

Charles Fletcher,PRMC Corporate Compliance Officer, stated at the HIPAA class that any PRMC employee "has until July 15th (I'm guessing 2007) to voluntarily disclose their participation in The-Paris-Site".

In other words...**They're not just searching for employees that might have posted possible HIPAA violation info, but apparently ANY employees that posted at all!**

He went on to say "Reduction of sanctions will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Sanctions will be less severe for those who come forward to voluntarily disclose wrongdoing."

Does anyone know what the LEGAL definition of PHI (protected health information) is? That was never defined in the meeting...

There's a scene in the movie "Full Metal Jacket" where Private Joker is interviewing a Marine officer overseeing the burial of about twenty Vietnamese who had been shot, placed in a large hole and covered with lime. He asks the young officer what happened and the officer replied "(They) were rounded up and told to report for political re-education. Everyone who showed up got shot."

Be careful about showing up for "political re-education" (aka "voluntarily disclose(ing) their participation in The-Paris-Site").

This reeks of PRMC knowing they don't have a case and as such, looking for names they can use to substitute for all the John Doe's on the lawsuit.

Personally, were I still a PMRC employee, I'm lying like a dog about posting here, and continuing to post anyway. Essent cannot stop people from posting if they do so on their own computers. SHould they attempt to do so, we have now gone into invasion-of-privacy issues, trampling of the First Amendment, and overall harassment. Perhaps Hud doesn't have the money for expansion or new hospitals, but he may have money for lawyers- he's going to need them should he continue on this path.

Yep, I'd bald-face lie to the bastards,,,,,mentally flip them off, and continue.

Regarding the 8:09 PM post;

I almost fell off my chair when reading what Charles fletcher, some big shot at E$$ent, said about the sanctions to people who have read the blog or posted to the blog. Their punishment (whatever that means) would be reduced or be less severe if they came forward and admitted their transgressions. Hitler would be so proud.

WHAT? Give up their First Amendment rights so they can be fired for some silly-assed reason. CP knows most of the angles and she will figure out something to get you gone. Just ask a few hundred people you know that she fired and those people tried to collect unemployment from The Texas Workforce. What a joke. Welcome to a right to work state that is Texas.

If there are any people working at PRMC that falls for this BS, I understand there are openings at Burger King. You'all will fit in nicely.

Frank, get out that picture again of the gates of Auschwitz. Jews had to wear yellow stars, homosexuals pink triangles and gypsies black triangles. What will the PRMC employees wear as they line up to get gassed?

Essent's tactics never cease to amaze.

The truth is obviously so painful for hud and dick, and they aren't smart enough to find solutions... so they try the scare routine on a larger scale and still have the same problems....

Hey jacka$$e$..spend as much time, effort and money on formulating solutions to save your failing hospitals, as you have spent trying to shut down the blog and you might actually, do some good..

Common Sense....not so common at e$$ent!
