Disgruntled Former Nurse
July 11, 2008
Three cheers, four stars and hip hip hooray to THE PAPER for the truthful, in depth coverage of Mr. Covert and his unnecessary antics. Keep up the good work and show this man absolutely no mercy. It will be treating him the same way he treats others who don't bow to his ideals. He isn't even ethical in his actions.
This week I was sent directly from my doctors office to the emergency room at Palomar. Great staff, no complaints, but I spent 8 + hours on a gurney. Take it from me I was not a happy camper. A little after eight p.m. I put on my clothes and told my husband to take me home. All of a sudden a bed became available on the telemetry floor~~~HMMM~~~why didn't I think of this hours earlier?
We elected this board and it is past time to show some of them the door, right along with the man they hired as CEO....MR. COVERT!.... Voters before you make your mark on that ballot, study the candidates running for PPH Board of Directors and know what your are doing. Ask questions, get answers.
La Dainian Thomlinson is a football player that I think is the best in his field and a smart business man too, but why on earth does the hospital need LT as a spokesman to the tune of two million dollars that they do not have?
If the bond issue for a new hospital were to be voted on today I am relatively sure it would NOT pass. The area where Palomar now stands is good enough and has room for more buildings. The area where the new hospital is to be built is an area that is hard to reach due to traffic gridlock at many different times during the day. Who on earth did that study?
Palomar Hospital has some of the best nurses, doctors and technicians in the area. I know because I worked right along side of them for 25 plus years.
My question to you Mr. Covert is "Why are you spending so much of your time minding some one else's business?" Is this because of some personal vendetta? Snooping into someone's e-mail is NOT what you were hired for. Spend some time on helping out the waiting situation in the E.R., it is now and has been for a long time a major problem.
Come on docs~~~stick up for your own. Don't let this happen to Dr. Polansky. As the old saying goes, "There is safety in numbers".

Ed Gallo’s NCTD Commentary
This was a welcome explanation to provide a picture and understanding of the NCTD's budget problems and funding dilemma. Ed Gallo notes that the Sprinter Project was totally separate from the NCTD's operating budget and the funding sources specifically prohibited any other use than it's construction. This suggests that it had to be built because there were funds specifically allocated. We now have a state-of-the-art rail system at a "bargain price" of $484 million for passengers who were previously using the existing Breeze bus system. The Sprinter adds just that much more to NCTD's operating and maintenance costs. This money has to come from some where. The taxpayers should demand more accountability and prudent stewardship of public funds.
