How is your medical system deciding how to vaccinate healthcare providers, nurse and ancillary staff for Covid 19? Ours seems to be worried about optics and prioritizing is unclear to many of us who completed the attestation and willing to get vaccinated. While the rest of the country have started to vaccinate, we have yet to start vaccinations until tomorrow.

Ours is based on long term care workers and patients first followed by frontline healthcare workers. Any excess doses are given by lottery

Following CDC guidelines and focusing on front line staff in ED, COVID units, and ICU/CCUs

Update: this made the news (Stanford and Covid 19 vaccine) - they’ve since tried to be more transparent with the process and change the priorities more align with CDC guidelines

Bottom line is stop worrying about the optics and get people vaccinated is the most important mission. Every shot in the arm saves a life.

ER & CCU, MDs & some administrator/directors.

I get ER, ICU m, but administration ? Do they work from home, lower risks, etc.? No offense or problem with admin getting it, but before our nurses, janitorial staff, front line workers?

Just curious whether it came with an explanation, information or rationale. We just got an email from the higher admin apologizing that they did not kept us informed and also “errors that resulted in an outcome we did not anticipate”

Ours is all frontline workers, starting with ED, ICU, EVS, and COVID floors, but so far I've seen nurses and providers all across my hospital get it. No management yet, unless they're pulled to help out on the floor.

My organization started with high exposure staff then down the line to employees with no patient contact

Update: I just got my vaccine as part of second wave. I’m grateful. I agree with the comment above-every shot in the arm is a positive step. It might not be the end of Covid, but lives are being saved. (Of course, masking, social distancing and hand hygiene continues to be best practice)

My employer allows to split maternity leave (ie one does not have to use the 5 months consecutively). If you had the option of doing this, plus support throughout (grandparents living next door), would you take leave consecutively or split it (for example use 2 months right after birth and 3 months later)?
Why?

I’m negotiating my upcoming maternity leave, as I just found out that there’s no standard policy at my company today. I’m also finding wildly different policies out there at other SaaS companies for AEs.

At my last company, it was 100% full OTE payout during the 12wk mat leave with no quota ramp offered upon return.

I spoke with another company recently who offers 16wk 100% base + 50% variable or full deal payout (whichever is higher) and 3 month quota ramp upon return.

What’s yours? Thx!
