The way she describes the rest of the staff and doctors as wanting to please those above, following procedures only and not treating patients as individuals just resonates with me and reminds me of similar jobs. Fairplay to her for going against the grain. Must be horrendous working amongst all that. I would like to think it is all incompetence, ignorance and a misunderstanding of treatment but its clear its way more sinister. Shared with my friends and family, zero replies......I think they may have reached their limit of patience with me! When you work in a field like medicine, you're so deep into it that you cannot see the forest for the trees. You basically keep your head down your job and go along with what you are told. You don't really have a reason to believe that an "emergency" is some kind of fraud so you go along with it. Then you have the way Emergency Management is setup. It's a top down scripted system, where each person has a manual they pull out for each situation. So, when the person above you "pulls the alarm" so to speak, you pull out the manual and you do what it says. Once everyone is in this mode of doing their set of things the whole thing turns into a runaway train that cannot be stopped, or like a snowball rolling downhill, getting bigger and bigger, which no one can stop. Since no one can stop it once it gets going, everyone has to pretend it's all real even if they know it isn't because no one wants to stick their neck out and get it cut off. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
