OK, stupid me, I had deleted the e-mail about what we were supposed to do for the hurricane. Lucky for me I have a friend at work who rarely checks her e-mail, so I called her and she forwarded it to me.
"Those employees SCHEDULED to work the following shifts - SHOULD ALL REPORT TO THEIR RESPECTIVE UNITS NO LATER THAN 6:00 am THURSDAY MORNING. Individuals should use their own judgement regarding local weather however; if you believe you need more time to come into work safely, please do so.
Thursday Day Shift
Thursday Evening Shift
Thursday Night Shift
Friday Day Shift
Blah, blah, blah
All employees previously scheduled to work, on call, or newly reassigned, in essential work areas (defined as those where hospital operations continue) will be paid their regular rates of pay and any supplemental pay (e.g. shift diff, overtime, call pay) for which they are normally eligible. Employees should clock in and out as usual for as long as timeclocks are functional, or otherwise check in and out with their supervisors. Again, we will not schedule any one individual for more than 16 hours of work in a 24 hour period and will provide sleeping accomodations within the main facility for working individuals.
Blah, blah, blah
(Here's the best part
...and provide them with minimal bagged meals, requiring them to bring their own snacks, water, supplies, bedding, towels, change of clothes, etc. Such accomodations will not include shower facilities, will have potentially many people in very close quarters, and may or may not have electrical services."
I may get in trouble for posting this, if an administrator finds out, but I thought the world needed to know. The state labor board is going to find out tomorrow. I'm so glad the hospital put it in writing. Hell, maybe I should send it to the newspaper.
