Key Players

Dr. Rusty Gates – Internist

I have been admitting patients to Middlefield Hospital for 5 years. However, I recently moved my practice to the new hospital across town. The new hospital has much better facilities and the technology is state of the art. The staff appear much more invested in the quality of patient care and my patients seem happier.

Eileen Wright – Board Member for Middlefield Hospital

From my perspective, the employee morale at Middlefield has declined over the last 12 months. More and more employees are leaving Middlefield to go to the new hospital, and we have staffing shortages in most areas. The director of nursing is a great leader, but he is having difficulty retaining nursing staff. I am not sure what to do, but I don't want the reputation of the hospital to suffer.

Anne Teaks – Registered Nurse for Middlefield Hospital

I have worked for Middlefield Hospital for 22 years. This hospital has always been committed to high quality in patient care. These nursing shortages have occurred many times through the years, and we will get through this one as well. I don't like that we are short of staff on many shifts, but we all have to pitch in and make sure our patients get the care they need.
