Even before the pandemic, Sutter Delta management wass putting profits before patients, with staffing levels that pushed patient care and staff safety to the limits.
Sutter Healthcare got $843 million in taxpayer dollars during the pandemic. They’ve made more than $825 million this year, and they have been paying executives millions in salaries and bonuses.
And, since the start of the pandemic, Sutter Delta is down another 37 frontline caregivers--despite all those profits. That is not safe for patients or workers who are burnt out, exhausted, and breaking down.
Sutter Delta management is bargaining in bad faith and refusing to listen to frontline caregivers, hospital workers as they try to keep patients and workers safe.
It’s time for Sutter management to listen to its caregivers.
