US Nurses Being Laid Off As Hospitals Loose Money

Economy

https://globalnews.ca/video/7242585/u-s-nurses-face-layoffs-as-covid-19-cases-surge

 

A large number of US nurses have been getting laid off as hospitals look to cut costs from pandemic

 

In some cases many hospitals cancelled or delayed elective surgeries to make room for covid patients that in their area never came

 

In other cases a lot of money spent to buy equipment such as ventilators turned out to never be needed to full capacity and money was lost there as well

You'd think they would be thriving with all the pandemic traffic filling up every facility

Well I guess pandemic filled hospitals would be concentrated in specific areas harder hit especially areas with more old population

 

Many hospitals end up spending money preparing and not needing it or delaying money making procedures to make space so I'm not surprised many actually are down in business

Not to mention that if they are experiencing surges in cases, but don’t have adequate funding to supply treatment and care, they have to make budge cuts wherever they can

Or of some bad restrictions? :oops:

Well, if hospitals are affected by this situation, I am really scared for the next 2 years. 

And again, it's scary to read about cancellations of "surgeriers" like is something normal. What happened with those patients? Shouldn't be more patients that need surgery because of those cancellations? I really dont want to think about this, because I really dont want to find the answers. :saladga:

Why doesn’t the US have universal healthcare yet in 2020?

If their money is “loose” then why don’t they just secure it with some rope? :ladyhaha: get it? Cause you said “loose” instead of “lose.” 😂

Well the surgeries are elective meaning they aren’t necessary to be alive. Elective surgeries can range anywhere from gallbladder removal to full on plastic surgery. I’m assuming you must’ve read over the elective part.
