HOW THE WORLD CONFLICT PERTAINS TO THE HOSPITAL

World Conflict Pertains To Hospital Resident/Patient


---We find unrest all around the world, at this point. It mostly seems that the individual is asserting himself and the oppressive government where he is located, (Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain and Libya,) is having a difficult time accepting this. They react violently to a non-violent proposal made by the protesters.

----We see that this is, also, showing itself at the hospital. The resident is standing toe-to-toe with the administration, asserting itself as a viable entity…much as the citizens of the oppressed nations around the globe. It is the same as stating that, ‘’we are as mad as hell and are not going to take it anymore.’’ As long as there are two sides, someone will be as ‘’mad as hell.’’ Working, together, will solve the situation.

---To be more fair, I have to admit to a big improvement that has taken place over the last few years. When I first arrived at the hospital in 2003, the resident and the staff were more like ships that pass in the night. There wasn't much in the way of communication. But, there has been an improvement in the last few years that let's me know that headway is being made. It is a big ship that moves very slowly, at times, while, in-the-meantime, I've been known to try and ''push-the-river.'' Not a very good match in that regard.

---We can learn from our own David and Goliath where we realize that the stoning WILL STOP when they break bread together and see each other as equals. Peace will happen when negotiations take place for needs and preferences of those on BOTH sides. This will be the ONLY way that a real peace will take place.

---The gap exists and the gulf is very wide in some places. The real solution is the same in ALL cases. The truth of the matter is that, ‘’We are all in this together.’’ It is just a matter of realizing that fact. We then work together and weed the garden to make the existing situation a positive one for all concerned. As long as everyone has a different outcome in mind, we tend to see chaos. Take Care.
