A newspaper article in our Sunday paper revealed the fact that the ceo at our hospital makes almost $700,000 a year. The vice president of nursing makes over $300,00 a year.
And we have been told to do everything possible to save the hospital money. We have lost medicare payments due to the budget crunch.
Tonight we "saved the hospital money" by working with a smaller staff since we had discharged many patients from our floor. That worked fine until admitting started filling us up.
Anyone else have any ideas on saving money for the hospital? By the way, I know for a fact that at least one employee at our hosp is living in the homeless shelter.
.....So what is your ceo making?
it is disgusting what they make!!! i remember that when i worked in the hospital being told that president/vp/other higher management postions were making 300,00+/yrly not counting perks. right now, i am working in a ltcf and believe that the adminstrator/don/assitant don are pulling in a high salery. i'll even state that, ok, maybe they deserve what they earn, but come on.......be fair with the emloyees pay. not only nursing but all depts. now, with many cuts, we have had several meetings regarding "how to cut costs without cutting care".....they say that we are one of the few who are not laying off, so that if we all work together to lower overhead our jobs will be safe. now, the big thing is making sure lights are off, faucets are closed all the way, don't use nursing notes for scrap paper etc...[/color/]
what ticks me off is that we were told that yrly merit raises were being cut(percentage-wise). also, cutting down on ot, using pool etc...i can understand those two. but, i don't think that it's fair that our supervisors and up are getting bonuses each month depending upon the amt of ot they used. the less they used, the higher their bonus???? i say, not fair!!!!!!". i feel that employees are being short-handed here and that management is not being affected at all. it's very frustrating. it's been like this for yrs, and i don't see any changes in sight.
