In the discussion thread: Don't let Catholics run hospitals [View all]

Response to Dawson Leery (Original post)

18. My friend worked at a Catholic hospital when the nuns ran it

 

And it changed to corporate leadership from nuns running the show. He said the healthcare quality declined rapidly as hospital money went to corporate bonuses, hiring useless consultants and "management teams", and advertising. he could tell you stories all day about consultants who installed multi-million dollar software projects and gadgets being bought that were ultimately shelved due to uselessness. My family has gone there for over a generation and the care tanked, my father walked out in the middle of the night because no one came to discharge him for an entire day.

My friend left that job because finally benefits were being rolled back for hospital employees. He had fond stories about the head nun who would come down and talk to him and the patients about their care, while during his time he never saw the new CEO in person. They had built expensive corporate offices and spent their time there. Catholics aren't as bad as they seem when the corporate vampires come, believe me.
