    It is rather obnoxious to listen to hospital employees all night long talking about their personal home life and love life all night long. Its bad enough people are there in pain and suffering and employee private lives are more important to them than the patients putting out hundreds of thousand of dollars to give them a job.

    What's even more annoying is all the noisy equipment in the rooms they can do without. Those monitor machines cost tens of thousands of dollars each and seems a waste of money. They are not efficient nor cost effective when staff spends more time fixing connections and machine faults than aiding patients.

    Medical staff should regard patients with a lot more respect as they are hired help who's job depends on quality of service. During tests and OR operations where everyone in the room is more concerned about each other week than the victims they have tied down. I don't think they realize how much a person in an OR can hear while their lives are at risk and in their trust.

    They need a protocol to respect the patients adjustment as well as the noise.
