We often complain about GH never doing anything hospital related. The reason was obvious since Lisa came back to work. The writers clearly do not understand the politics of real hospitals. I know alot of things get embelished for tv, but creative license shouldn't be abused.
First of all, the hospital would not just sweep the incidents of the trashed lockers under the rug the way they did. 2 doctors were targetted. An impartial hospital investigation as well as a police investigation would be ongoing. The safety of the doctors would be the prime concern.
Second of all, most hospitals would put Lisa on temporary suspension pending police investigation of Robin's accusations.
Third, no chief of staff would force Patrick or Robin to work with Lisa. If it was a minor disagreement or someone didn't like her attitude or the music she played is different. Both Patrick & Robin have been Lisa's "alleged" victims of crimes such as kidnapping, stalking, attempted murder for which a police investigation would be ongoing.
Then, there's the biggest blunder of all. The thing that had me mad enough to bi*ch. No chief of staff would threaten to fire either Patrick or Robin for not wanting to work with someone they have accused of all the above crimes. Especially in a hospital that is always low on funds & there are so many other hospitals who would love to get their hands on a doctor with Patrick's qualifications (supposed to be one of the best surgeons in the country).
Finally, the overall unprofessional behavior of the staff toward Patrick would not occur in real hospitals. Having had Lupus practically all my life, I've been in & out of hospitals all my life & have a more intimate knowledge of the behavior that goes on than I would like. While the staff may gossip about each other, they would never behave disrespectfully toward that same colleague the way the staff at GH have toward Patrick. Especially in front of the patients. The open hostility toward him for cheating on St. Robin is completely unprofessional. The one that shocked me the most was Epiphany, who is usually the voice of reason. Oh & her complaint about the hospital falling into disarray because 2 doctors were out on leaves of absense? If a hospital can't handle 2 doctors with 2 different specialties being on leave, then it is one very badly run hospital & Steven should stick to surgery. During the tenure of Dr. Hardy & the Drs. Q, there were personal battles going on & it never turned the hospital upside-down. There have been lunatics running amok in the hospital before & it never created the chaos that this one night stand has. Maybe the good people of Port Charles should take their ailments & emergencies to Mercy instead.
