    Default Be Careful What you Wish For - PS PAy cuts

    My stepson broke the knuckle on his hand today.

    He was brought to a Primary Care Unit – cost 60 Euro.

    Diagnosis a broken joint – go to A&E and get an Xray. Probably a broken joint and 80% need for surgery to fix it. Brought to a GP Co-op for exam. Cost 60 euro.

    Got a letter for A&E.

    He asked tonight what’s likely to happen.

    He will be brought to a hospital. Open on a Sunday – heating, lights, handwash etc.

    He will be met by a receptionist to record his details. Working Sunday.

    He will be met by an A&E nurse/doctor for triage. Working Sunday.

    He will be sent to XRAY. Expensive equipment in a heated lit environment.

    He will be met by a receptionist to confirm his identity and procedure. Working Sunday.

    He will be met by a radiologist to take his xray. Working Sunday

    He return to A&E with his xray. Clean environment, heating and lighted, security etc.

    He will be met by a nurse. Working Sunday.

    He will be assessed by a House Doctor. Working Sunday.

    The consultant will probably be called to assess the injury. Working Sunday.

    He will probably be scheduled for surgery on Monday.

    That brings in a different range of personnel. Theatre staff, anaestists etc.

    Do I want this – yes I do.

    If it was a car crash that happened to my family I would be delighted to know such an organised collection of professionals was available to tend to my family.

    Be careful what you wish for……….

    Well I am shocked, these overpaid underworked PS scum actually bother to put on the facade of hard work and caring for the sick.

    The more interesting thing is - we asked would he be better going now (7.00pm) or in the morning. Response - the A&E will be so full of a**holes at this time of a Saturday night it is no place to bring a child. Wait till tomorrow.

    So Saturday night for medical professionals involves a series of offensive occasions that are not suitable for witness by a child.

    We do NOT pay these people ENOUGH

    How much is ENOUGH? (note the capitalization of enough)

    Cost €120 for all that ?
    Of course you want others to pay for your health care.
    Think a little more carefully....

    Working on a Sunday in a hospital. Shock horror!

    If you've such an issue with working on Sundays, perhaps the medical profession isn't fo you.

    Something to think about before you fill in the CAO.

    I hope poor Jonnie recovers soon.

    I hope you enjoy your Sunday.

    After your visit too the A&E, you might post exactly how everything went and how much reality mirrored your fanciful post.

    Cool. F**k them all. All them workers on a Sunday.

    Lets be clear.

    My missis has a serious illness. The implications of a crisis are simply devastational. We both live with that reality. It's NOT pretty. That is OUR truth.

    The stepson's issue it true but not serious.

    For my missis, who is in SERIOUS illness, am I glad there is a team to greet her?

    YES I am.

    Am I a PS?

    Yes I am.

    Am I glad of the team we might need?

    Yes I am.

    Easy question. how much should a nurse get for a Sundays 8 hour shift? You said they are not paid enough?
