Lately, on Saba, people are complaining about the elections and politics: WIPM this, SLP that, or about the weekend fights, who is locked up, who is speeding and the list goes on. We complain about politicians and whatever (give all this a rest). We tend to forget that there are other serious matters that effects our people daily and its high time and long overdue we start acknowledging this and speaking up. I am referring to our health care insurance office, the one and only ZVK.
Is this department not a department who is supposed to be there to cater to all people of Saba equally? It’s a service that these people are getting paid to do. It’s a job not your own privately owned company. Where is the fairness in how this department is operated?
Mr. Editor I am going to speak it as it is!!! ZVK Saba plays too many games with their positions, giving preference to whom they want and trying to shaft others. Belittling, humiliating others will not earn you respect or a crown. I am sick and tired of hearing how some patients are being treated and spoken to by ZVK office Saba. For lots of patients, it is as if they are “begging” ZVK for what these patients are rightfully entitled to.
I have to ask the question is ZVK “owned by certain of its workers of by the Dutch ministry of Health?” The way these people act is as if it personally belongs to them and the monies are coming out of their bank accounts. I never knew that they had to dig deep down in their pockets to pay out health insurance monies? I thought that people pay for health insurance. My grandfather once said that many people don’t handle positions of power well, because it goes to their heads. I would say that many people can’t handle positions of power, because it makes beasts and monsters out of them….
Who do you think you are? Do the job that you are getting paid to do and try and remain humble. Trust me, humility will take you a far way. Your best way up is down and your quickest way down is up. What I mean with this is: remain humble and let God lift you up, but when you try to put yourself up, you fall and the fall oftentimes is very hard. Treat everyone fair and square, We are not begging you for nothing: ZVK Saba, this is our rights, ZVK.
This department needs to be evaluated and overhauled by the Dutch ministry of Health!! Too much of “I AM IN CHARGE AND I WILL DO WHAT I PLEASE WITH WHO I PLEASE WHEN I PLEASE” has to come to an end. Someday Holland needs to sends down some of its professional, educated health care insurance workers to man this office on Saba. Believe you me, we the people of Saba needs the intervention of Holland in this matter of ZVK Saba.
Its often said on Saba, that certain people in positions don’t have educational degrees, however more important many in positions needs to earn a degree in manners.
Thank you Mr. Editor for allowing me this time and space and I know many people on Saba will agree with my article.
