I received an email that pooh-poohed comments as conjecture, rumor, and less than factually based. They wanted specifics. That presents problems:
- To comment on the blog, with specific facts about a situation requires putting your butt on the line. (Although I've tried to keep identifiers out of publication.)
- People have been suspended for commenting, logging into, or promoting the blog.
- One was supposedly fired for not being able to stop the information outflow.
- Phone calls and computer use are subject to monitoring.
Heck, when just mentioning that they are short-staffed can get a suspension, it kind of takes the wind out of your sails.
The popularity of the blog indicates that it hits a nerve...Essent ( both here and corporate) logs in daily, and so do healthcare organizations from all over the country. I don't know if it's to commiserate, or to gloat...or to see if they are reflected in any of the comments that are so visibly displayed on a platform that has had over 77 thousand hits and is referred to by blogs in several other countries.
Somehow I think it's all of the above.
