Marcia Ann Smith. RN BSN Alan Braynin CEO Good morning. I am a Registered Nurse currently on contract in Louisville KY working for AYA. I have been working a COVID contract since January only to learn a few days ago via text from my recruiter that my pay was going to be decreased from $87 to $52. I have worked anywhere from 48 to 60 hours since my contract started . I have COVID patients routinely sometimes three per shift, and an additional two patients for a total of five. I am Charge Nurse, preceptor, and I contribute much to the hospital as a local travel nurse. I am front line, and I and provide optimal care for all my patients. I am a twenty year seasoned nurse, and while I am grateful for my hourly pay, there are other nurses making more than I am hourly with less experience. It depends on your recruiter, and how much she or he is willing to advocate for the nurse(s). I brought that issue to my recruiters attention with no response from her. Upon receiving the new rate via text while I was at work, clearly a very unprofessional way to inform a nurse of a severe pay cut, I voiced my concern about this not being in good faith to initiate this in the middle of a contract. My recruiters response was “ I know”. To her point, and to anyone making this pay cut should know, it is impossible to say “ I know” when you have not been on the front lines as a nurse. This is one of the most difficult times for the medical field , and I am speaking for all disciplines. My contract ends in May;, and the pay rate they have given me is $35 less hourly for the duration of my contract. This is not acceptable, and I strongly encourage you to please look at my profile, along with my work ethics before making this decision. I understand the business side in terms of the expense , and impact COVID has had on the medical field, but the risks are far greater front line , and that should be taken in consideration before making this decision for a pay decrease in the middle of a contract. Also, years of experience should factor in as well. I am grateful for the opportunity to provide services to my profession, and I appreciate being part of AYA Healthcare, but I in good conscience cannot allow this to be overlooked. I am asking you from a nurse perspective to please reevaluate this pay rate, and allow me to complete my contract with no interruption of a pay decrease that is substantially going to effect me greatly. Thank you . Marcia Smith RN BSN 502-939-1929
Heidi Everly As this unprecedented pandemic continues to evolve, hospital census has been generally declining, which has in turn affected the market and rates. We hope you can take some solace in knowing this change is a positive thing for our country. Someone will be in contact to guide you through to a resolution for this contract and any future assignments. Thank you.
