I had an administrator who would regularly yell at people. She also would ask some people, “What, are fucking retarded?” and “What, are you fucking stupid?”
On one occasion that she didn’t like an interviewee, while the interviewee was leaving her office, she made the an L form with her pointer finger and thumb (the loser symbol) and put her hand upon her forehead and silently mouthed, “Loser”.
At department head meetings, she would violently pound her fist on the table, and take turns yelling at each person with clenched fists and a bobbing and shaking head.
She also forced falsification of healthcare records. Double billing and false billing under her was routine, as it is for many skilled nursing facilities.
She would also refer to people outside of meetings as assholes, worthless, and useless (those we managed, that is).
I’ve also witness god knows much falsification of worked hours as well as sinful laziness and neglect and stupidity and indiscipline.
I’ve also known of unionized workers with** fifteen** write-ups but not fired.
I’ve also known of cases of fornication between employees on the job but hidden somewhere, perhaps an unused patient’s room or somewhere else one can hide. The result: both employees still employed!
The next time someone thinks hospitals and nursing homes, healthcare institutions in general, are bastions of good behavior because they exist to care for people and would employ only obedient, rule-following people, think again!
I also know some guy who during down time or whenever he gets sick of working screws around on T-mag. Oh wait…
