    it will take a lot more than 2.4m NIS to correct this if my recent "fly on the wall" observations of the acute medical ward at Ichilov is anything to go by. The behaviour of many of the medical staff, but especially the junior medical staff was frankly appauling. A lack of any compassion but above all a lack of humility. this coupled to an air of hostility and the body language of a Rottweiler. We're this counterbalanced by quality medical care, it would even be tolerable (even understandable on a time pressure basis). But in this situation the care and expertise were poor, and I got the impression that a wall of hostility and sanctimonious aloofness was a fig-leaf for this poor care. And the consultant supposedly in charge? The guiding figure and voice of experience to the junior staff? No where to be seen. Which perhaps explains a lot, not least why in subsequent conversation with other medical professionals, this unit has a very poor reputation. Attitudes percolate down the pecking order. If the cats away the mice come out to play, and in this situation the play is frankly feral. I hope this is an example of the bad apple, but my experiences after 18 months as a MD Oleh suggest that the aggressive hostile attitudes exhibited by the junior staff are perhaps indicative of a more generalised social malaise.
