    Ms. Kaminski has a tough job ahead. If she can put an end to the top heavy aspect of health care ie the abundence of nurses who do anything but nurse and have no intention of doing anything but striving for that all too available nine to five Monday to Friday position then she has done a good job. For the good of us all please send a person from upper management to some of the more peripheral areas of health care to observe just what goes on under the guise of patient care. The Bliss Murphy Cancer Centre comes to mind as does the five people who sit in the operating room lounge on Saturday and Sunday when no surgery is on the books and doing such medical things as knit or read. It goes on and on . As a former health care worker with considerable experience I now tell you as the people responsible for the bottom line to get back to the basics and have an informal look around at what realloy goes on in health care. And , please , do it without fanfare and bugles so the people in question dont know you are coming.

    There were 3 major hospitals in St. John's excluding the Janeway, ie, Grace General, St. Clare's and the Health Sciences. In hospital reform Grace General was closed. At the time we were told that for efficiency purposes the Diagnostic Depts, ie, Laboratory, X-ray Dept, Nuclear Medicine , etc., would be open for longer hours with two shifts of staff to accomodate the closing of this facility. We all know that didn't happen. Hence, there are long waits for all procedures, and the way medicine in practiced today, without these results there is a delay in diagnoses. If you are dealing with overworked staff, facilities that are not utilized to their maximum, you are going to end up with a defective health care system which is what we are dealing with now. I wonder how much the government paid to have these polls done and isn't that the job of the people in charge? Shouldn't it be part of their job to know these things?

    $350,000 +++ ??? Why did it take years to find out how inefficient EH is run? To pay her that much money, I would expect her to be a bit more efficient in finding the efficiencies.

      404. Not found. I assume it will come back up later, Even so, polls are useless. The numbers will tell you whatever you want to pull out of them. As well, how were the questions worded for the poll? It's common knowledge that the wording of questions can influence results.
