"eliminating duplicate services"

Providing patient care is a duplicate service?

While layoffs are horrible, it's even worse when things are dragged out so they have everyone at both facilities worried that they will be next.

The fact that they are dragging this out and leaving their people in the dark truely shows how little concern they have for their employees.

Also I'll be curious to see if any of the duplication in management and administration will be targeted or if as usual they will just get rid of nurses.

Once Lake Shore was taken over by the no care, gutless corporation back in the early 80's they lost their sense of compassion for residents and staff. I'm pleased to see the union finally made it's way into that*****hole of a facility. Just sorry to see employees thrown out into the street in an already depressed economy. Have the higher ups taken a cut at all??????

That hospital is always so busy the parking lot full at all times, how could you cut staff and retain any type of quality care? Well the corporation does not care one bit, it all comes down to making profit at the cost to patients well being. I feel for all the people laid off that worked hard for the hospital to be thrown under the bus its not right at all!

If BOTH hospitals would terminate the high level managers the former CEO brought in that were NOT needed, that would save a bundle of money. Wake up Board Members! Why did you allow him to hire those people in the first place? And why did you allow him to rent an off site office space when he had an office? Waste of money again!!

They will reduce the hands on staff untill there are severe patient care problems, then they will blame the hands on staff, fire them and hire a new high paid manager to make sure it doesn't happen again. I pity the patient who doesn't have round the clock family members to help protect them from the mistakes that a too small, over worked staff are going to make.

As a former employee here several years back, I see nothing has changed - no one in management is going to take a cut in their salaries, which would be most effective. Start at the top of the totem pole and work your way down, instead of the other way around. I can't recall too many patients who need a QA manager or a CEO to distribute medications or assist in their recovery.
