My DH is a nurse in a hospital. Recently, our area has been full of forest fires, there is smoke all in the area (our area isn't nearly as bad as where my DH works, 30 min away). But it has gotten so bad that the hospital is filled with smoke. They haven't evacuated yet, though they man at some point. Everyone has to wear masks in the hospital but they don't help much. The employees who have asthma haven't been able to work this week (one of my DH's co workers who has asthma came in anyway and had to be sent to the ER. Do you think that until the hospital can either evacuate or clear the smoke out, the people who have to be there (my DH can't just leave or he could lose his license to practice nursing) should get some kind of extra pay since they are having to work in these conditions? His nurse manager sent an e-mail to the chief of staff in the hospital asking for some kind of compensation, however, she hasn't heard back.Answer Question

If it is that bad for him think how bad it is for the patients. They should have evacuated already. Rather than pushing for extra pay his supervisor should be pushing for evacuation.
