Have you ironically lost out on a donated perk because you were at work

The community wants to express some love to the healthcare workers. They set up a little area , they go all out, cook food, give out nice little trinkets. One problem it is from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.

One popular chain set up at my job. We could get something for free. They were there until 8:30p . I come in at 7pm. I was busy non-stop until midnight.

I'm sure it was nice.

Yep. Early entry into grocery stores. 6-8 am weekdays only. I work 6-4 M-F. Actually not really an issue for me since I do curbside but it really doesn’t work for most people.

My job posted a list of places that offered daycare for healthcare workers. One company on the list mentioned "very reluctant to accept business from Healthcare workers"

And yes "reluctant" is really in the print. I don't have kids, but that is rude.

Even if you work 7a -7p or 6a-6p night or day shift. If you work nights you may not get out until 8am and if you work days well you are already at work.

Unless you go on your off days. So I guess your good

Yeah, lots! Usually food trucks, but once a chair massage. They always schedule this stuff between 20:00 and 22:00 when it's insanely busy.

Having worked nights for more years than I can count, I’ve missed every single “appreciation” event hosted during what used to be Nurses Week, now termed Nurses Day (depending on who you work for). It’s absolutely amazing how many higher-ups seem to forget there is even a night shift at the facility.

No different than when they get pizza or other food goodies for long term care facility staff and leave out night shift. No less insulting is when night shift gets leftovers and half eaten garbage left for them to clean up and throw away.

Yes, very rude. Why did they even bother to list them?

in my area of the world, LTCs, rehabs, and dialysis clinics don't get any perks either. I guess we're not at any risk 🙄

Fresenius sent each clinic a large sign that said "Heroes work here". Most clinics are on their own grounds so they put them up, no issue. One clinic, south of ours, is on a hospital complex. They put their sign up, the hospital employees thought it was for them, provided by the hospital. They took pictures with the sign and posted on FB about how cool the hospital was for recognizing them. The hospital even went along with it, like they had done it. When pointed out that it was for the dialysis unit by the parent company, the hospital employees were laughing and asking why would they do that for them? Just shows that, yes, there is classism in our ranks. Sad, with all this going on. We are all doing our part

Even if you do manage to get something from the food truck. It is usually placed in the break room with your name on it. Five hours when you finally have time to eat it, the thrill is gone.
