After missing the past few days our nurse returned today. I sat her down and told her that 4 call outs in 7 weeks was not going to be accepted, especially when I lost a job interview opportunity on one of those days. We would not ever travel down the road of tolerance like we did with our last nurse. Obviously the agency is not keeping tabs or they would have said something.

My response too is always the same, a lot has changed & no longer exists in 25 years. Adapting is necessary, but apparently incomprehensible as a philosophy. However, I will concede that sticking to your initial principles is worthy. Living up to them, well now that is a different story. For a company that has had set standards in place and has boasted upon this to combat criticism for a quarter of a century you fall well short of meeting and demonstrating those. (more…)
