Ohio University Hospital announced it was cutting the salary of 4100 caregivers due to the lack of patients.
Hospitals across the nation have been impacted financially by the high costs associated with preparedness for a surge in COVID-19 patients and a sharp decline in revenues from the suspension of non-essential surgeries and procedures. Health systems in Ohio are similarly affected.
As a result of the financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the operations of University Hospitals during the past month and into the future, the health system has announced that for an initial period of 10 weeks it will reduce hours and pay by 20 percent for about 4,100 caregivers not directly involved in patient care. Executives, directors, nonclinical managers, department chairs and division chiefs will have their pay reduced while continuing to work their regular schedules.
Caregivers affected are salaried and hourly nonclinical staff throughout the health system. Exempt, salaried caregivers will take one week off every fifth week. Non-exempt, hourly caregivers will work 20 percent fewer hours per week.
