A former classmate of mine is a hospital administrator now. He found parts of this article laughable. Especially the part where hospital honchos don't outsource because they want to keep the maximum number of people employed. Please. Those employees will be tossed under the bus at the FIRST opportunity.
I am positive they are outsourcing as we speak. There is a lot of it going on. A lot of the outsourcing jobs still goes to locals but they don't have health insurance or other benefits like hospital employees do. Not saying that hospital employees have any benefits that are all that great, except for the unionized ones that is.
They are trying to outsource inpatient dialysis at our facility. So far, it isn't going well. As for union nurses having better benefits, I don't know about that. We are the only union RNs in Pittsburgh, and our benefit package is so weak that some of us waive them and purchase our own. We pay 70.00/month to the SEIU for the opportunity to have poor benefits, low pay, and ridiculous work rules. Bargain, eh?
