My first thought and reply to the article's author...Are you FREAKING kidding me? Well maybe the second thought and reply as the first one was a bit more inflammatory and why that's not it here.
Instead, this much more subdued version is it...
Really? Interesting that a healthcare administrator would write about the "few indeed" in healthcare rather write about the MORE common and our great nation's silent national crisis--healthcare directed violence!
First, I DO NOT like thetitle of this allnurses’ article. NOT the author’s fault. I just have a different perspective. Mine, the BEST defense is OFFENSE! With my tone set, how about “Healthcare directed violence” instead for title? The difference, Healthcare directed violence is more inclusive, as NO one in healthcare is excluded from this tragic and pervasive phenomenon, and the responsibility of EVERYONE in healthcare to eradicate.
Second, allnurses is NOT a collective voice for healthcare, despite what they state.
I came across this post in the Facebook news feed with the following comment, "This is why the age of a nurse does not indicate level of experience...anda link to the original article. A comment and article I found nonproductive for healthcare and not to mention prejudice with regard to age.
Because of the disappointing comment and article, and bias towards age I posted the following comment to the original post.
I have now worked fourteen shifts
thus far at the current job and I ALREADY see the writing is on the wall. That is
not a self-fulling prophesy, a phrase I cannot stand, but simply a fact instead.
I have seen this movie a number of times already.
Interestingly, however, during one SAME 10-hour
shift customer satisfaction went from one extreme to the other and, luckily,
back. This being an argument I made inthe book, how
is it possible that when the only changing variable is the patient that someone
else, other than the patient, is at fault?
Transcript to STTI Vancouver, BC podium presentation (15 minutes) each number corresponds to slide.
(1)Thank you for
this opportunity as so many have labeled this content as irrelevant for healthcare
workers. You will disagree. Instead, you will find this a conversation that
matters and that needs to be had.
(2)Raise your hands, who remembers The VIEW, a TV show, dismissing
Miss Colorado USA, a nurse, as wearing a costume and borrowing a stethoscope?
(3)Raise your hands, who heard that on 13 May 2017 a nurse was kidnapped,
brutally tortured and savagely raped while at work caring for others?
Despite healthcare administrators, pundits, and gatekeepers have labeled this content as irrelevant to healthcare workers, healthcare workers say it resonates with them and why I continue to submit abstracts.
When gatekeepers say, "No."
I say, "MAKE HEALTHCARE GREAT AGAIN!
After being at the new job for two months the Vice
President (VP) for Strategy, not sure what that is, showed up to pay me a
visit. Never met this VP, or any VPs, before so when the VP introduced himself
one afternoon my first thought was, “The end has arrived.” Surprisingly, the VP
had some productivity numbers he wanted to share with me and the reason for his
introduction and visit. How nice (nauseating).
A couple firsts! In 30+ jobs as a nurse practitioner I
have NEVER met a VP, will NEVER be able to say that again.
The following objectives and abstract were submitted (28 Jun 2017) for podium presentation at theNMNPC 3rd Annual Fall Conference, 17 Nov 2017 in Santa Fe, NM. (NOTE: This is the 3rd abstract submitted to this organization. Keep the fingers and toes crossed!)
1. Participants will learn the history of healthcare service excellence.
2. Participants will be made aware that the current path healthcare is being “taken down", regarding customer satisfaction, is NOT good for healthcare, healthcare workers or patients.
WAY OVER DUE!
My own After
Action Review (AAR) once again, as there were no attendee evaluations, for the
conference presentation titled “MAKE HEALTHCARE GREAT AGAIN!” This time in DC
(4 May 2017). However, several attendees, like conferences before did provide
supposed to happen (GOAL)?
the plan to achieve this? 15-minute podium presentation without Q
and A. Presentation slides included links to the book’s web and Facebook pages,
to include at the end of the presentation a slide that directs those interested
to follow-up via those page links.
