Item description for A Good Day in Hell - The Flatlining of Nurses Across America -What Will It Take to Resuscitate Our Health Care System? by Kellyann Curnayn...
Overview Curnayn analyzes complexity and compliance issues, and she urges health care providers to stand up to a system that has stolen the joy of serving.
Publishers Description In light of the impending national crisis and shortage of Nurses this book gives a very unadulterated version of the disease processes costing hospitals millions. Consultants continue to place the band-aid on the blown artery while inpatient staff have surrendered to apathy, holding to the belief "the system can not be changed." Increasing operating margins is useless if there are no Nurses to make the hospital function. Who will determine the allocation of inpatient beds? Although written from the perspective of the Nurse no one is safe from being held accountable. Who looks out for the patient? Caring for the patient is secondary to documenting that care and the world wonders why people have become indifferent to the needs around them. I boldly state the system has stolen the joy of serving our patients and we (all hospital employees) must stand up for the truth. This book analyzes complexity and compliance issues, which are the root causes of apathy that has taken hold of bedside care providers and the Nursing profession. Kellyann Curnayn graduated from the University of South Florida in 1991 with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing while her proud family applauded. A much esteemed profession within her family. She worked in the field of cancer for the first 10 years. Many hours of self-reflection, discussion, and prayer resulted in the efforts that you read about today. With the courage that comes from knowing an omnipotent God she stepped out to esteem health care providers to stand up to a system that has stolen the joy of serving. Created a consulting company that has the front line workers and patients as its point of service.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Good Day in Hell: The Flatlining of Nurses Across America?
To all Health Care providers Mar 28, 2008
A Good Day in hell presents the despair of the health care system from a nurse's point of view. "Apathy" of the system graces everyone who touches a patient, in part cused by the governing bodies of the health care system. Ms Curnayn has broken down the causes and given solution to our faltering health care system. A Good Day in Hell is a great beginning.
Opening the Door to Change Jan 11, 2008
An impassioned expose of the critical shortage of nurses and the apathy of the profession festering beneath mountains of documentation that makes care of the patient secondary. The author cites the problems experienced by herself and her fellow nurses offering possible solutions. Many of the issues discussed are relevant to the teaching profession as well, where a similar apathy exists amid the constraints of documentation and paperwork leaving less time to tend to the actual business of a child's learning. It makes one wonder if all those who dedicated their lives to serving others find that the "system" keeps them from fulfilling their calling. Thanks to Curnayne for opening the door to change for nurses.
