For the past two weeks, I have been telling you about shortages where I work because they stopped paying bonuses. That didn’t matter during the hurricane, because the hurricane plan divides the entire hospital staff into 2 teams. One team was required to arrive at the hospital on Wednesday, and would remain until the storm was over. Then team two would arrive and staff the hospital until the emergency is over.
Team two is leaving this evening at 1900. Guess what? They are already sending out texts, begging for more staff, because there are staff shortages.
