Re: “The Trouble with Kaiser's Technology

As a former Kaiser RN, I agree 100 percent with this article. I spoke up numerous times for safety and pointed out the obvious. My concern turned to pure panic at times for the patients. Bdalarms going off because confused patients wanted out of bed and nurse in pt rooms doing things like medications, discharges, admissions, toileting etc and the pts can fall leading to a centinal event. I think the state came in last January to Kaiser Santa Rosa due to falls and then understaffing. My last 2 weeks of pt assignments were so completely unsafe I was visibly upset. Yes I asked for help but as usual none was provided. I made an error, nothing life threatening and I reported it and later I was fired. They don't want nurses who speaks up and tell the truth to the patients. The managers managethe nurses and no nothing about the patients. They do rounds on the patients trying to try information out if the patients to use against the nurses. It was so bad I just wasn't myself anymore. I could go on and on, but bottom line is they are only about money and they are lieing to the community.
