@ JohnSteven: As a matter of fact I did quit my job, which was a great financial hardship for me and my family. As tough as the Missoula job market is, many PHC employees quit rather than put up with constant harassment. The pattern of abuse and mistreatment at this institution was and is still far too pervasive to blame the victims in this case. It is absolutely the most dysfunctional place I have ever seen in my 20-year career in healthcare. Employees who did their best to take care of sick people were not acting entitled when they asked to be treated with respect. It takes courage to stand up and publicly say that the way PHC is run is totally unacceptable. We should in no way feel ashamed to be taking that stand.
As a former PHC employee, I too can attest to the abusive and exploitative work environment there. I also had the experience of appealing to Human Resources at the County level and getting absolutely no support. I am glad that these lawsuits are moving forward, and I hope that the complaints will be heard by the community. I still believe in the mission of Partnership Health Center, and the organization's leadership needs to be held accountable for their unethical treatment of employees over the past several years.
