That's disgusting! The patients don't notice when the CEO isn't around...but they certainly do when the NURSE isn't there!
so much for belt-tightening......Hey! I have an idea.....LET'S TIGHTEN THE BELT AROUND THE CEO'S NECK!WHEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've never heard a patient yell "CEO, CEO" at night.Come to think of it, I've never heard a doc say "who is this patient's CEO?" either.
Anon: you've hit the nail right on the head. I think I'm going to use that line in our union negotiations!
Your hospital should advertise in our state, our nurses are all collecting unemployment benefits.
Nurse K: That would be great, except we're in a hiring freeze. Yep, no new hires. That's why the CEO gets to have a million-dollar bonus--he's saving the hospital SO much money because we have no nurses, no ancillary staff, and no supplies!
Save money and spend it on your CEO! Nice!Why would anyone want any supplies anyway? Next thing you know we'll be going the way of third world countries where you have to bring everything of your own (nurse, food, sheets, etc.) to the hospital when you get treated.
Doesn't everyone know, hospitals are now businesses...never mind that most of the "customers" don't pay...
That is ridiculous. Ugh, the politics of business disgust me.
"Next thing you know we'll be going the way of third world countries where you have to bring everything of your own (nurse, food, sheets, etc.) to the hospital when you get treated."Teachers already do this! Hell, I have to buy $$$$ my own curriculum to teach my 18 students.
The way (banking and automotive) CEOs are acting these days you don't even need an MBA to run a company.
Just to play devil's advocate, suppose the CEO made or saved the hospital the equivalent of 500 nurses' salaries that year. Do you think he doesn't deserve compensation for that? What would be a reasonable amount?
Old MD Girl:I suppose I should have phrased it better: When the CEO's bonus is enough to hire 12 full time RNs AND we're dangerously understaffed AND management laid off 35 newly-hired RNs over the howls of the union, THEN you know what's important to the hospital. If the CEO could maintain safe staffing levels, not allow pensions to go spiraling into the toilet, and actually allot enough money so that we have enough supplies stocked to get through a shift, he's entitled to as much of a bonus as he can stuff in his mattress.
