Re: “The Trouble with Kaiser's Technology

"It's just kinda catastrophic right now."
That's my favorite quote from this entire article. It pretty much sums up how it feels to work in the 'new Kaiser'. It is not just the nurses that feel this way, either, we just have the benefit of writing daily ADO's (assignment despite objection) to document the difficulties we are having. I do not know of a single unit that is staffed appropriately, and the supporting staff is understaffed as well. The only reason we are able to survive is because nurses would kill themselves before they let something bad happen to their patients. You know that staffing levels are atrocious when your managers are burnt out and hobbling out of the building at the end of the day, when they shouldn't even be doing patient care. Maybe they should get a union.
I support everything that has been stated in this article, except for Bolano's claims. She obviously has not been at the bedside, nor read any of the ADO's.
