So, for reasons yet unknown (although I don’t think the idea is so wrong), we just got word that all the doctors in my group are going to be rated by staff. We’re to be rated by PA’s, Nurses, and the secretarial staff and techs. Also we get to rate the PA’s and the PA’s get rated by everyone else. I’m not sure how the ratings will be done – anonymously of course and hopefully without too much space to free text – I can just see this, “He sucks! He orders me to do all this crap!”. Anyway, this is all fine except for one glaring omission. The doctors and PA’s are not going to get to rate the nurses. Why? Well, apparently it would have to get past the union! WTF?! It’s not like these ratings are going to get anyone fired (or so they say) or have their pay docked but are to give you an idea of what others think about working with you. F’ that! I don’t want to get rated if I can’t rate them back! I have a few choice things both good and bad to say about some of the nursing colleagues. Nope. Union bullshit. As usual.
