My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for PHYSICIANS FOR A NATIONAL HEALTHCARE PROGRAM , Berkeley, CA, USA
I have been an R.N. for 30 years. From the beginning, I have had to deal with the lack of good sense in this field. When I entered in 1980, the main problem, as I saw it, was care being motivated more for profit than good sense. As managed care came in, I saw good, preventive, sensible care not being paid for, in order for investors to profit. This is not a system that encourages good nurses or responsible patient care. Sick persons are never happy campers, so there will ALWAYS be challenges, but please let those challenges be honest ones. I think it's contemptible to hold up people for $$ when they are sick. It is SO hard to be satisfied to be part of a system like that. These are some of the reasons I have stood & acted for change, and PNHP keeps me up-to-date on the positive changes, as well allowing me to work with others who feel as strongly as I do.
