Well, blow my nose!
The key to fighting a cold is a laxative!
Instead of cleansing the nasal passages, you cleanse the intestinal tract!
And, you combat acidity!
Apparently, the acidic life is not worth living.
Up with alkalinity! Get up wit’ yo’ bad pH!
This is false advertising, anyway.
The husband is waiting on the wife? Yeah, right. In the Twilight Zone, maybe.
Sal Hepatica. Sounds like salty liver.
And to think, I thought Afrin was my best friend when I was sick!
I’ll wait until you get over your nausea.
Okay….take a deep breath…..
I thought I’d check out their website and I found this blurb:
How do patients size up your health care environment? Find out with Press Ganey’s Patient Satisfaction Surveys and discover how to target your improvement efforts where they matter most.
Target improvement efforts where they matter most.
Well, what does matter most to patients who visit the ER?
Based on what I’ve read in various “questionnaires”, it seems there is only one real complaint:
- Patients don’t like to wait.
Let’s use “rooming” as an example.
They want to go to a room on arrival, therefore we are now required to perform “immediate bedding”.
And lord forbid that we take them to the triage room first and then put them in a room.
That doesn’t count. Then we hear at the staff meeting that the doctors don’t think we are bedding immediately enough.
After all, there was a bed open!
And somebody had to……tell me it isn’t true……….actually wait for a few minutes before being escorted back to the treatment area.
Oh, the horror!
Call me crazy, but we are an ER.
Geeze, we’re one of the (if not THE) premier heart facility in the damn state and now they are trying to make us a stroke center, both of which require emergent, as in FREAKIN’ STAT! implementation of specific protocols.
Wouldn’t it be prudent to leave a monitored bed available for these extremely serious patients?
Tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of frantically moving patients in an emergency than to keep someone waiting.
Press Ganey is not pleased when patients wait.
And when Press Ganey is not happy…
Well then it must be the nurses’ fault.
