It’s not just Wirral Council who are seemingly awash with incompetent managers who resort to bullying when staff dare to question working practices. It appears our local hospital has the same problem ……
Using the example of the trusts core values, under the somewhat patronising clumsy acronym “PROUD”
which stands for
Patients are at the heart of everything we do
Respect each other every day
Our hospitals are your hospitals
United to provide the best possible patient care
Dedicated to excellence in all we do
we would suggest PROUD (sic) could also stand for
Patients treated as statistics not people
Reduce nursing practice to conyer belt health care ( see Kaizen principles)
Obessesed with meaningless jargon.
Undermine staff who challenge bad practice
Dismiss genuine concerns of staff as inconsequential- Adopting the F.I.O.F.O. mindset ( fit in or f**k off)
nothing has changed at Arrowe, it is still happening in underhand subtle ways to grind staff down.
