Drake is a good guy. He was in Arcata for years and did a great job there. Maybe Eureka is more of a scary place- instead of cool hippie pot smoking dudes now he has meth people desperate for their next dollar or fix. it's a scary world out there. I wouldn't be a cop for anything. Drake needs our support.I am sure whatever happened here was unusual or trumped up. I have seen the other side of Drake and he is a great cop and person.
Well, I hope it can be worked out without costing the hospital an arm and a leg. We need our community to stand by our hospital and continue to make it stronger. It works to our benefit to assist them to improve instead of bringing them down. Employees historically have issues with management. They don't seem to understand each other in so many settings. In this case anything that benefits the patients needs to be looked at by both sides and given consideration over their own personal goals. I hope both sides do.
Thank goodness there are nurses like you. I found most I had in St Joe's to have your values and professionalsim. Too bad a few have to compromise the reputation of the group. What if the hospital had not taken action against those few to defend its patients? The community would certainly be complaining about that! Your type of nurse and this hospital seem to have the same goal. I hope you can work together.
I had wonderful nurses in my recent ICU stay. They were knowledgeable and experienced, and made me and my family feel like I was in a safe place and in good hands medically. I would not hesitate to return to St Joseph's. Some good things are obviously going on there. I have no experience for what happened before this summmer, with the nurses in question.
Exactly. And I maintain that the patient's protection is the goal here. There was a worry that was being compromised, and the hospital took action
to protect them. The patients come first, always. A good employee appreciates that a camera can prove that very fact.
Thank God St Joe's prioritizes its patients over its staff. Someone has to protect the patient, especially after the events of the past- lack of attention, overmedicating to make their evening easier, etc. No one should worry about cameras in a hospital. It is public place where those in need need protection. It can only work in the favor of those most vulnerable.
