Statement from Northern Inyo Healthcare District

 

The Northern Inyo Healthcare District values and respects all District employees and their right to hold and participate in an informational picket.

The District entered into negotiations with the Registered Nurses and Patient Care and Technical Workers with its value for District employees at the forefront, and complied with its obligation to bargain in good faith, including but not limited to, providing responses to all proposals. The District’s proposals to the employees were guided by the principle of responsible governance and based on its current financial circumstances. The District will continue to engage in this process in good faith.

FROM SIERRA WAVE MEDIA:  Sierra Wave Media contacted NIHD to ask why the statement was being submitted and was told a News Release had apparently been issued to some media outlets by AFSCME on October 27, 2022.  Our Sierra Wave Media email, [email protected], did not receive the News Release.

They bought the Joseph house inn for the teaveling doctors to stay while they are here. Seems like a good way to save money would be to dump that place and invest it in your staff

I was under the impression we got the traveling nurses and doctors here because we have a shortage of local talent. I fully support the staff at NIH over the admin. but also my personal experience with the traveling staff has been very positive. It doesn’t seem that these travelers… Read more »

The hospital has had problems with their computer systems and especially their billing, which they chose to farm out years ago. Seems like it would be hard to keep the lights on and people paid if you are not billing in a timely manner, or at all. Of course the… Read more »
