Doctors Being Furloughed or Given Pay Cuts During the Coronavirus Pandemic


Yes, hospitals were losing money, but lives were on the line. As budgetary issues loomed, many chose to furlough or cut the pay of doctors. Smart move? Probably not. Here is an example shared with us:

Read your blog on hospitals cutting salaries and laying off hospital staff. Spoke with my anesthesiologist friend yesterday. He was informed his pay will be cut 70 percent. He is still showing up to work, still on call, still at risk.

Doctors have relayed to us how they will never forget how they were furloughed or lost income, and yet administrators did not.

This needs to be remedied.
