If they think the good old state owned university hospital sucks they could try it at Burger King.

9:14, if they did that, they'd be competing with the job best suited to you.

I have seen both sides of this situation. Nurses at KUMed that never sit down for 12 hours, eat lunch while walking down the hallways, take good care of their patients, highly trained and smart.
Then they're the ones who sit at the floor computers shopping on the net, eyes clued to their iPhones while caring for patients. No difference than any other business in town unless you're the one in the bed.

Wouldn't want to be the one in the bed without a good nursing staff. It's hell. I vote for more pay and get rid of the deadbeats.

@ 9:14: Thanks for giving us all a demonstration of the slave mentality at work! Tell you what, why don't you travel out to Hallbrook this weekend and show your masters what a good boy you are by raking their leaves? Then thank them profusely for giving you the opportunity to serve them!

The owners of Cerner's stock went up $800 million in the two week period the ACA went into effect. Nurses keep getting more and more shit piled up on them. They do so many jobs they didn't used to do. All of the aides the hospitals got rid of they just eliminated the jobs. The work didn't go away. The just piled it on to the staff that was left, mostly nurses. There is just some people I want paid well like nurses. And pilots. And doctors. The medical industry makes obscene amounts of money. Don't let Obamacare or anything else tell you otherwise. Hell, the top 10 pharmaceutical companies in Forbes 500 make more than the other 490 companies combined. Think about that. More than Exxon, GE, Microsoft, Apple, etc. COMBINED. We are being screwed.

Anyone complaining about low pay is a Marxist. You all are going to die poor so just accept it and drink you liquor from a plastic bottle.
