As a soon-to-walk-away Nurse Practitioner in the health care system in Manitoba for over 25 years, my eyes have been opened to the corruption, inefficiencies, and the multitude of issues that shackle healthcare providers and keep them from providing high-quality, patient-centred care.
The College, the unions, the regulators, the ineffective managers, and the never-ending army of bureaucrats that interfere with care just about blow you away in shock. Then, when you see those issues over and over (and over) – and how they impact health care providers and patients in such a profound way – you wonder, "How was this ever allowed to get so bad?"
My story is just "another one" of MANY disturbing stories about how pen-pushers in regulators' offices try to 'protect the public interest' by following paper guidelines and checkboxes that make absolutely no sense in the real world of caring for unique humans. They...
• Make inappropriate judgements of the practitioners;
• Make incompetent and unsafe decisions;
• Treat the practitioners as GUILTY until proven innocent;
And good luck proving your innocence unless you have a good lawyer and over $50,000 even in the simplest and most obvious of cases that should have been open-shut. (Such an embarrassment!)
Why are so many pen-pushers given such power? It makes no logical sense in the real world! Oh yes, there is SOOO much more to say about this story! More to come!
