From running out of room at the morgue to caring for critically ill colleagues, many doctors and nurses on the frontlines of America's Covid-19 outbreak say they are at a breaking point.

Don't do the job if you don't want to...tired of people (nurses, doctors) complaining about their jobs - YOU KNEW YOU WOULD BE AROUND SICK PEOPLE AND WORK 12 HOUR SHIFTS.

SHUT AND WORK AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT...THEN QUIT AND DO SOMETHING ELSE.

(HEY EVERYONE...DID YOU KNOW HOSPITALS ARE GIVING BIG RAISES TO NURSES AND EVERY EMPLOYEE IN HOSPITAL FOR THE EXECUTIVES KNOW THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH GIVING BIG RAISES NOW (WHO'S GOING TO COMPLAIN WHEN EVERY NEWS OUTLET TELLS US EVERY FREAKING NURSE IS A HERO!!!)

GET READY TO PAY MORE IN INSURANCE AND CO-PAYS FOR YOU HAVE BEEN JUST SCAMMED BY HOSPITALS AND ALWAYS GOES BACK TO INSURANCE AND THEN TO CONSUMERS TO PAY!!!

GOD BLESS NON PROFIT HOSPITALS - YOU CAN OVER PAY CEO, PRESIDENT AND NURSES AND NO ONE IS GOING TO COMPLAIN...(YOU WILL BE MOCKED AND OUTCAST IF YOU DO COMPLAIN)....HOW DARE YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT HEROS BEING PAID MORE BY TAXPAYERS AND EVIL INSURANCE COMPANIES...

EVERYONE IS A HERO MEANS NO ONE IS A HERO

Don't know where you you are getting your information from, but nurses are NOT getting raises much less big ones.

Guest

Hartford Healthcare and Yale gave raises...big raises in some cases. The executives are smart weasels...they know giving raises to nurses and support staff will justify their big raises (100's of thousands of dollars)....It's not advertised for people would be outraged for EVERYONE GOT RAISES...EVEN PEOPLE IN HR/MARKETING/admin...YOU WILL FIND OUT IN YEAR WHEN IT IS SLOWLY LEAKED.

As I tell kids...just work for non profit government jobs and you will make twice as much than in private sector and do less. Nurses, Teachers - can never get fired and don't do that much.

I love it when a huge obese nurse tells me to cut down on sugar...where they hell do they find these hypocrits? Should have to pass physical to become nurse or doctor

I can tell you first hand that support staff did NOT receive large raises as nursing/clinical staff did. Out yearly “PIP” bonus was cut this year and there is an across the board yearly increase instigated a performance raise as in the past. Nurses and clinical staff were underpaid and received large raises because they had been underpaid a very long time snd many had left because of this. Fact.

They and everyone received raises for the hospitals know now is the time to grab all the money at the trough like pigs. Wtnh and news outlets praises the gods of front line so get the taxpayer money and give EVERYONE RAISES and especially the executives now since they raise the everyone elses

as i have said for years- hospitals are a scam and most everyone is overpaid for working in a non profit...

after all- i thought it was all about service and giving back?

NEVER...all about scaming the taxpayer and healthcare insurance.

I have been hospitals over the years for family and will never go myself....waste of time and a rip off. Go back to cash only and get pricing up like a deli so you know what you are paying BEFORE THE TESTS!

Too much fat in hospitals - and I am not talking about the nurses only!

Guest

But everyone did receive raises... the truth is - non profits rip the people off with crazy salaries for employees - if you want more money - go to the private sector but hospitals have a good scam going

Guest

Just checked my wife's pay stubs, NO raises. But she is a floor nurse not management, she actually takes care of her patients.

Guest

why are you checking your wifes pay stub? you living back in the 50's? is your wife ok? are you holding you wife against her will?

ahahahahahahahhahaha
