Regional Corporate Hospital has established guidelines for a “worst-practices” protocol, according to officials.

“Regional Corporate Hospital already has established a best-practices requirement,” said Margo DeLathridge, media liaison and pre-RN/LPN. “The goal here at Regional Corporate Hospital is to establish a list of priorities about what not to do, and whatnot.”

Items on the “to-don’t” list include careless misdiagnosis, pre-medicated negligence and, in the context of physician-patient relations, “being a big meanie.”

“As always, our focus is to provide health care within the spirit of Regional Corporate Hospital’s mission statement,” the press release went on to continue.

Violation of these anti-goals is either good or bad, depending on how one interprets it, a local semantics expert said.

Officials did not specify what motivated the initiative.

“Are you threatening me?” said an anonymous source at RCHP headquarters.
