Crisis in de zorg

Doordat er een economische recessie heerst ontstaat er een noodzaak om te bezuinigen, zo ook in de zorg. Managers van boven af gaan met dit probleem op een technocratische wijze aan de slag en proberen tot zo efficiënt mogelijke oplossingen te komen. Er wordt gigantisch aan gerekend om te zorgen dat er geld gewonnen wordt door de tijd in te korten. Een direct gevolg van deze rationele beslissingen is dat er in het personeel bezuinigd moet gaan worden, waardoor er minder tijd vrij komt voor de zelfde hoeveelheid cliënten. Tijd voor een babbeltje bestaat niet meer en de cliënt wordt verzorgd volgens het basis pakket. De zorg waarvoor het ooit bedoelt was is niet meer het zelfde. Er worden van boven af onpersoonlijke beslissingen genomen waar uiteindelijk de cliënt ( de mens ) de dupe van is. De zorg is als het ware een product binnen een bedrijf geworden en de mens is het medium waarop het wordt uitgevoerd.
