sorry, english not spoken here

Some days ago and not for the first time, I mentioned foreign doctors and language problems and the havoc some had caused.
They were working for the NHS and I wondered if were just the nature of a national service that would do that. Can’t recall what else I may have said.
Well, this came up today and it is a hum dinger. This goes way beyond insanity because if the fellow in this story had that much of a problem, then how in the world did they allow it to go on for years?

Take a look at this one. It could make a pretty good sit com. You know, guy working in hosp. setting and confusion over language etc. Might be funny. Except in real life, no so funny.

And speaking of not so funny.  We’ve been getting gale force winds almost all day and now into the night.  Brrrr. Have some very, very large trees close by.

Indian radiographer who could not speak English worked at cancer hospital for SIX YEARS before being sacked after string of complaints

· Ramani Ramaswany was dismissed from The Christie cancer hospital in Manchester
· He has also been suspended from the national radiography register for a year
· The Health and Care Professions Council heard that he showed ‘a lack of competency’ in a number of areas while working at the hospital
By Steve Nolan

The Health and Care Professions Council found that Mr Ramaswamy had showed a ‘lack of competence’ in a number of areas while working at The Christie.
The panel heard that patients and staff had difficulty understanding him, with his command of English said to be getting worse by managers at the hospital despite extra English lessons after taking a job there.

He was also slammed for failing to demonstrate competent handling of equipment and setting up a bed so badly that a supervisor had to step in to stop a patient getting injured.

Mr Ramaswarmy had asked a patient to confirm their name four times before a colleague was forced to intervene because neither the patient nor the member of staff could understand what he was saying.

The radiographer, who lives in Moss Side, also failed to consistently ask patients to empty their bladders before procedures were carried out.
A senior colleague described his practice as being ‘a bit of a hit or a miss’ and he often read out numbers incorrectly.

Because of concerns over his communication skills, he was at first restricted to a role where he had no contact with patients.
He was moved on to the treatment floor in September 2009 for a three-month trial but this proved unsuccessful.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
