The YouTube video on hospital greed really resonated with me. I have worked at a widely known, nationally renowned hospital for 24 years. It was my first job and I started right after high school graduation and worked all through college then full time. I’ve done various jobs there the whole time in the same department. During the start of the pandemic I was working as an outpatient tech with no access to gloves, masks, or hand sanitizer. The hospital did not care about our safety- it was strictly about continuing to bring in as many patients per day as we could and I understand that we still need to make money but the employees were begging for some assistance at that point and were scared at the beginning of the pandemic. I continued to show up every single day helping all of my patients after working for seven months straight in pandemic conditions with no help and no regard for my safety they cut my position. I was a dedicated employee and I always put patients first. I came to work every day and tried to put the patients at ease about Covid even though we all knew little about it. The CEO of the hospital was making $6 million a year and if they took a little bit less they wouldn’t of had to lay anyone off. I feel lucky that I was able to secure another position because I was worried about not having health insurance. It was honestly so eye-opening. I feel for nurses and honestly any healthcare worker. There are many times during the work week where we are abused because they never want to turn patients away for their bad behavior because they want to make money off of their exams.
