    It's getting to where it will soon need its own subforum! :eek:

    The medical and dental boards & Gov. Abbott all agreed on rules allowing doctors & dentists to perform elective procedures again starting tomorrow. I'm working through all the rules now.

    Bottom line - screen all the patients & staff for COVID and wear and N-95 or similar mask if there is risk of aerosols.

    A lot of doctors are having trouble getting their furloughed workers back. Turns out the unemployment checks are too tempting. That's pretty sorry.

    If they don't go back to work, the unemployment checks should stop.........either way...

    Good luck Doc....

    I’m sorry to hear your staffing problems.

    Q: are the SBA/PPP conditions dependent on keeping the same people or keeping the same number of staff.

    From an HR standpoint, a furlough is temporary with an expectation the worker will return when called, while lay-off is permanent. Also, if furloughed and failing to return, it can be cause for termination depending how your employment contract is constructed.

    I realize there’s cost and emotion associated with terminating the old and on-boarding new staff, but if the terms of the loan are dependent on staff numbers being equal or higher....that leaves open some options.

    Fortunately I don't have staffing problems. Some of my colleagues are having those problems, though.

    That is the constant complaint by San Antonio liberals on the re-opening of restaurants and the like. They don't want to go back to work; but if they don't, they may lose their unemployment benefits.

    For those of us who continued to work during this mess, we don't have much sympathy for them. They too sound like they've gotten used to sucking off the government teat, and would like the working masses to continue to pay for their vacation...

    And that's the only one I read that I take issue with. You want to start an IV on me? Good luck if the room is cold. Basic physiology: the veins burrow in to retain heat. I think I could almost start my own IV with my vein in one arm if I am toasty. You can see it popping out. How could you miss it then?
    I only ever had one bad experience donating blood when the tech had to dig around for my vein. Never again.

    Hell - that's an easy fix. Use a small torch - apply to skin. EVERYTHING pops up!!
