My sister, who is a nurse and doctoral (DNP) student, is afraid she might lose her job because her hospital is so empty. They keep cutting her shifts. She’s already been working in their covid unit directly with patients. She was originally very concerned as her hospital has been over capacity and under staffed since October. But now they’re apparently over staffed? For reference, she works for a major healthcare company in one of the largest metro areas in the US.
Our politicians certainly have a lot to answer for, but at the heart of a lot of our issues are our profit over everything healthcare providers.
Tortoise for your time.
