For the first time in many years, hospitals as a whole, are laying off nurses and getting thrashed financially. In fact, hospitals are reporting drastic revenue losses, losing an aggregate of $1.4 billion per day. The loss in revenue is directly attributed to COVID-19 in that hospitals eliminated elective procedures thereby eliminating the cash that is used to run the hospital. Additionally, the COVID-19 cases are producing additional losses for hospitals as the price of acquiring equipment and PPE supplies continue to soar. Stories range from entire wings of hospitals being closed to patients being placed in halls due to lack of room availability. Hospitals are digging in and rapidly exploring revenue alternatives.
