Not a thing. Love my career and my control over it. I still break bread with fun teammates, I still see clients sometimes, I still feel apart of it, without being apart of the “bad” stuff. Here’s my work, thanks for the payment. 👍🏽

Is there a point to disclosing a relationship between two staff who are in different lines of service? Never reached the point of reviewing each other’s work, but met on the same team (now no longer on the same team or office). In the beginning, neither of us wanted to say anything premature just in case it didn’t work out. Since it’s grown more serious, we’d be more comfortable disclosing it. But is that necessary?

Hello! Any CST/CSFAs on here? I'm curious about your salary and location! My small community hospital was recently bought by a very large hospital system. They gave large raises to 95% of our employees across all specialties (some called what they got "life changing") but our group was overlooked or disregarded with no explanation! Now we are losing employees (4 have put in notices in the last 3 weeks and pretty much everyone is looking). Any suggestions on getting someone to reassess our wage?
