Ever sit and wait in an emergency Room for hours when its not realty crowded ? Did you ever see the Emergency Room Staff rush like they do in the movies or T.V. shows running with a crash cart ? Ever been an inpatient & have a nurse who didn’t give a crap and lets you ring from your bedside from today till tomorrow and is non totally unresponsive? I’m sure at one time or anonther we all heard that cry of “Help Me” coming from some elderly poor soul being ignored all night long .We’ve all experienced the Doctor that thinks his crap don’t stink with absolutely no bed side manner and believes his Dr. Title is an elevation in society similar go that of an English Earl. Ever seen low level patient care givers and nurses that seem to have no supervision, well we all have at one time or another, this is because the people upstairs mainly The Administrator doesn’t care one way or another.
