My hospital is purposefully understaffing my department and has for years. We don’t have enough people to perform all the tasks they want us to, literally a lot has been abandoned for months…and get this…they recently stated we are ✨overstaffed✨ and want to cut us down by another 2 people while tacking on more responsibilities. I’m convinced psychopaths are in charge in hospital administration.

Over on r/nursing, they’re also talking about some extremely concerning medical supply shortages.

Funny how not a single hospital is reporting a CEO shortage.

Gee low pay, bad working conditions and long hours. I wonder why?

“We tried not paying them more, adding more hours, denied them vital equipment, disregarded their stress, and forced them to work while sick. We don’t understand why we can’t keep positions filled?”
