Shape up or ship out!

RE: “Retreat nurse: staff is at the breaking point” [Letters, Jun. 27]:

Sounds like the Brattleboro Retreat administration should shape up or ship out! What in the world is wrong with them?

They are showing that they don’t really care about the patients or the staff that they definitely need! The administration should be replaced! As soon as possible!
