    Hey . . . I looked up the word "cynic" and Goddammit . . . there was
    your photograph! People who are fault finding and wallow in their own
    self-interest rarely make much of an impact. I wish you well . . .

    This was my original msg that he was responding to:
    12/26 3:09 PM >>> Hospital CEO's are not from Mars,
    They are from hell!...Talk is cheap...nurses are not. No wonder your
    resolutions are ALL about what you are going to SAY...and not what you
    going to PAY...typical, and you still just don't get it. Poor you,
    for budget. Poor us, fighting for the patients...you know, the ones
    provide your high salaries. Put your money where your mouth is if you
    sincere and forget these stupid articals......Sincerely, L. R.

    maybe someone can provide the link to the original thread with the artical.........thanks......LR

    WTF are you serious? And this is a CEO, who is being paid six figures and can't even respond in an intelligent manner? I know there are idiots out there, but THIS is too much. I think her response should be shown to patients all over the place, so they can see how the hospital responds to nursing's concerns.

    Hey . . . you have me shaking in my boots. You know nothing about me or our institution. And, we do put our money where our mouth is. I convinced the Board of Directors to budget a $ 3,500,000 deficit so we could pay our nurses above the market and provide a list of incentives and benefits most hospitals would never consider.

    So, how about you getting on an airplane and flying here to visit with us. I will pay your expenses myself. No, I will not put it on the back of the hospital . . . I will pay your travel expenses out of my own pocket. So I will put my money where my mouth is. Will you put your time where your mouth is or will you continue to wallow in your cynicism.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Jan Jennings

    so anyone out there wanna work for this *&$!%..?...NOT ME!
