Text Of The Day

From todays Hawkes Bay Today.

`I have been a patient in Hawkes Bay Hospital. Great meals and staff. I was transferred to Wellington Hospital. Terrible meals and some staff can't speak English. Keep up the great work HB Hospital. Unattributed

pdms comment. Given that HB Hospital is currently administrated by members of the Board which David Cunliffe sacked - there is one change only - and the divisive Chris Clark (General Manager at the time the Board was sacked) has gone it is obvious Cunliffe mad a poor call.

"it is obvious Cunliffe mad a poor call."

Heh... freudian slip?

On a more concerning note, how can patients in a NZ hospital who are dependent on staff employed to care for them when they are vulnerable, be expected to have to cope with functionally illiterate employees? This does not meet any test of acceptability.
