Low Census???


I was wondering if the hospitals where some of you work are experiencing low census?? Our census dropped over the summer, which it usually does, but it has not picked up at all....This is a first and I wonder if it's economy related (such as no insurance....)

I am beginning to think I may need to look for per diem work or find another job period at another facility??

Any input would be appreciated.

Whether census is low or not....having a plan B (another/2nd employer)...is a good thing, considering today's economy...
