Behind the White Coat

“Hey, Doc, everyone here looks different again. What’d you do? Run ’em off?” He was laughing but I really just wanted to scream in frustration.

It is not funny.

One of the most upsetting things I have found blogging about the difficulties I have had with staff turnover is that invariably I get the insinuation or outright accusation that I am doing something wrong, that I must be the problem.

The reality, as I have mentioned, is that I have very little control. Most days it feels that I am a mere observer, showing up to the clinic to see what new staffing drama unfolds.

Two weeks ago I was told by a VP that there is a 46% turnover for medical assistants and front office staff within the first 90 days of employment across our system. System wide?

Those numbers make my own clinic problems look so much better.

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.
