There was an alarming story about medical errors in Portfolio magazine last month, and in this month's issue, there is a letter which says, "Couldn't a single nurse have taken ownership of separating mixed medication bags as he or she fished through the storage bin day after day, shift after shift?"
Spoken like a supervisor.
Yeah, she could, if she wasn't pulling a double shift with a sick kid at home. Responsibility always gets pinned on the line worker, while the supervisors are at home playing with their kids. All my life, people have told me I have to work harder while they themselves are "not in the office".
Another extremely alarming sentence, this time from this month's issue: "[the] inspector general told Congress that his auditors stopped counting after finding 2.3 trillion dollars in unsupported entries."
2.3 Trillion Dollars. Trillion. With a T. Lost, or at least unaccounted for. In the Department of Defense.
Jesus Christ with a popsicle stick.
