Staff revolts at Iowa hospital, management says it's manageable
Des Moines Register, March 6, 2008
Leaders of Broadlawns Medical Center in Iowa are vowing that a revolt among staff psychiatrists won't harm patient care, although they acknowledge that they'll have a challenge in replacing the doctors amid a statewide psychiatrist shortage. Four psychiatrists and the mental-health program's director announced in February that they were resigning from Broadlawns, which is Polk County's public hospital. They expressed anger over administrators' attempts to implement productivity standards, which they said could harm patients.
