Re: “Running Dry

The locals should help out. If they want. It to come back to life they should help financially as well as volunteer their time and energy. I would love to get it going again, find out what the people want..

Re: “Running Dry

I think they should re open it and have it open in the winter as a badass sledding place. That way they could receive income year round.

Re: “Running Dry

Take out the slides, bring in snow machines for the winter, jump builders in the winter, make a loge with a bar, and boom you have a ski/snowboarding park in the winter and a bike park in the summer/spring/fall. Plus the bar would bring in a lot of money. Lets be honest, Idaho brings in thousands of active people and drinkers.

Re: “You Got Frenched!

A druggie in CDA was YET AGAIN robbing and/or stealing from INNOCENT people or businesses and when confronted by security he dropped dead. This is a positive story and good news for citizens of Idaho since they no longer have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars a year arresting, charging, convicting and jailing this piece of human sewage.

A CRIMINAL ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT, high on drugs and with a history of violent criminal behavior was shit while attacking police and passers-by with deadly missiles. Imagine driving thru an intersection and getting your skull crushed with a grapefruit sized rock hurled by a illegal immigrant, criminal, wife beating thug. Would the Inlander write an article on how wrong it was for you to drive thru the thugs crime scene? or would they celebrate you life?

Singing the praises of criminals,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,cursing working Americans at EVERY turn. Ladies and Gentleman,,,,,,the Inlander.

Re: “Drilling Into the Future

This article makes no sense whatsoever. Someone with a drilling technology (poorly described in this article) proposes using it for deep geothermal drilling. OK. And that can be used to power a rocketship how?

Re: “Care in Crisis

It is standard 'business' practice for healthcare corporations to staff as low as possible and to push job responsibilities down onto employees while talking 'safety' and 'patient satisfaction' all the way to the bank.

Re: “Care in Crisis

The Inland Northwest is having an epidemic of mental illness. Anxiety, depression, suicide. People in crisis come to Sacred Heart. The community doesn't have any idea what this will look like with no Psychiatrists at Sacred Heart.
Solutions? Turn off social media, don't drink alcohol or do drugs, come from pedigree free of mental illness, avoid stress and keep to yourself. Shame on you Providence for letting this happen, while you were wining and dining the CDC for Ebola designation. Shame on you for not treating the Psychiatrists with the values of the Mission Statement. They were caring for the poor old and vulnerable while only asking leadership for respite

Re: “Care in Crisis

I googled "S-R, psychs resign" and nothing comes up about this story. What's going on here. Mental health issues in Eastern Washington have been in the news, with the issues at Eastern State Hospital, and court orders to provide care, not jail. How is it that Spokane's only mental health unit faces the resignation of its entire psych staff and the S-R, and local TV stations are not covering it? Are the newsrooms run by the marketing department?

Re: “Care in Crisis

This has cluster *uck written ALL over it... Going to do alot of prayer now. Twelve days in a row without a day off is inhumane. This is a HIGH stress job if you don't take care of your staff THEY will end up needing mental health care! I'll be watching to see how this turns out.

Re: “Care in Crisis

This is hard to believe. The article is dated 6/17 and yet, as of 6/23, today, we've seen nothing reported in the newspaper of record. What is going on here? I had read nothing until alerted by an email from a local anonymous blog -- Spokane Economic and Demographic Data which is must reading for what sit's below the surface in the region.

Re: “The Real Rachel Dolezal

The thing local communist party members and leftists are trying to wrap their heads around is not why a woman is pretending to be black for personal gain and enrichment. It is how to create a new class of "denied person",,,the "transracial victim of raceo-phobia. How can they protect the rights of poor white kids who start wearing baggie pants and coloring with the "brown crayon" when they are five or six and are forced to grow up white and educated?

Sure we have Bruce Jenner as the face of dudes who want to be chicks because they have a deep seated need to be their own daughter's, but who really cares? We need Rachel to be the face of people who never got the chance to be Pacific Islanders because they were born in Newfoundland and those poor souls born of two white parents who desperately wanting some rhythm and a nice tan.

We have at last created a class of underprivileged that anyone can join and keep their own genitals, HURRAY!!! All you do to join is pull your pants down and shuffle around with your underwear hanging out in a pair of never used for work,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,work boots. Everybody can be a victim.

They are not upset in the least she was/is a fraud.

They do not care she is a liar.

They are not in the least concerned for the rights of those falsely accused of "hate crimes" and otherwise persecuted for the imagined crimes against a fake black person.

The left could care less for the losses to the actual minority students and potential employees who lost funding and jobs to a fake black person.

The left will read her book, watch her movie and soon she will be the darling of the talk show circuit and Al Sharpton's co-host on his race-baiting and false hate crime specials for MSNBC.

Lies, deceit and deception are okay,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,as long as we push the agenda forward.

Re: “Care in Crisis

My only real question, not brought up by previous commentators, is how & why is Providence considering adding a partnership & building to accommodate more psych beds, when they haven't been able to sufficiently staff the current needs?

Re: “Care in Crisis

A person goes into a doctor and they have a cut on their foot. After examination of the cut and possibly some X-rays the doctors and the support staff are able to decide the cut isn't to the bone and no veins are severed. They prescribe antibiotics after an few stitches, tell the patient to stay off of the wound and keep it elevated and iced. The patient being of sound mind does just that.

A patient comes into the hospital and has an addiction. The doctors meet with the patient, suggest an outpatient program and send them on their way. Patient revisit'is another hospital or numerous doctors offices and comes away with the same outcome of no prescriptions. No solution for patients that have drug addictions except a rehab program or figure out how to self-medicate or some sort of mental health help.

A patient with a mental health issues presents. They require.contact with a triage of people diagnosing the problem often times comes with drug addiction from self-medication apparently involved. Depending on the illness and the series of issues not only does psychologists have to brought in, so does psychiatrist and law enforcement .

The paperwork required of a doctor under the new medical system is not doctor friendly for the patients condition, it is also paper heavy for a doctor that is required to wave their wand at a situation that even if they can resolve it will require patient compliance,it maybe a situation they have no control of.

The psychiatry medicine has become so heavy with paperwork the psychiatrist barely have time to meet with the patients while trying to comply with the regulations. People need to remember how psychiatrist have so much more education than an general physician and yet they are having to combine and mix drugs to attempt to gain a certain result.

The current paperwork and medical requirements are taking the art away of being a psychiatrist, a much needed doctor dealing in the abstract. We are going to continue to lose professionals in this field unless there are changes allowing psychiatrists to work with their patients and lighten the liability and paperwork..

Re: “The Real Rachel Dolezal

To my knowledge, Dolezal taught as an adjust instructor (not professor) in a certificate program. I don't think a certificate counts toward a degree so the qualifications are less stringent. Dolezal certainly inflated her title to professor, just as she has inflated other titles in the past. For example, she has referred to herself as THE director of HREI (implying executive director) when she was one of numerous directors under the ED. She has also referred to herself as president of the NAACP, when we all know she was only a chapter president, not the national organization's president.

Re: “Care in Crisis

I can't believe how this has been under reported by local media. This is a calamity. Could it possibly be that local news outlets fear losing the advertising revenue from Providence? Our legislators should be working to get funds to improve and expand services at Eastern State Hospital. SHMC's units are too small to meet the demands of the community. The physicians who resigned did so when their concerns fell on deaf ears. The mantra from administration is always the same when ridiculous workloads are pointed out. "Our staffing meets industry standards". Then they introduce yet another "lean initiative" to cut expenses (labor) and further increase the already back breaking workload the frontline staff members carry. If they plowed all of the dollars they have spent on outside consulting firms to actually hire an adequate number of staff for every department from housekeeping to physicians the care and cleanliness would be terrific. Why build yet another new building and then not staff it appropriately?

Re: “Care in Crisis

The odor of inadequate reporting rises from this article, as pointed out by the commenter who says s/he works on the adolescent psych unit. Did you make any effort to interview ANYONE associated with the hospital besides managers and the doctors who "aren't talking"? And how about some people who've been treated (adequately? inadequately? well? poorly?) at the hospital as patients? Because if seven doctors quit a hospital, you might want to find out how the issues leading up to that have been affecting patients.

At least you called NAMI, who advocate for people with psychiatric problems, most often as concerned family members. But the voices and experiences of patients and former patients are almost always ignored. Yet, they are the ones ultimately most affected by closures, overworked doctors, and understaffed facilities. If the person writing as a worker on one of the units is telling you there has been long-term neglect of the needs of its own DOCTORS for relief, it seems more than reasonable to assume that the patients might have been feeling the effects of this, too.

"Why did seven doctors quit their jobs at Sacred Heart?" It's a good question. And an important one which, as another commenter pointed out, we unfortunately can't rely on local TV news to investigate seriously. Please do some in-depth reporting and make a more serious effort to answer it.
