Well, you know all of those articles that you read that say nursing is a good profession to go into? It turns out that they are right. Her name is Mercy Matthews, and USA Today is reporting that she owns a home worth nearly a half million dollars, and during the most recent five years was paid $630,000 for overtime. She is a nurse at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility For Women.
The New York Department Of Corrections has refused to answer questions about the details of Matthews' enormous overtime, or whether or not she was paid to sleep overnight at the prison. Her regular shift was 3 to 11 pm, but she typically did not clock out until 7:30 am (the next day). The local media had to file suit to obtain Matthews' time cards, as their Freedom Of Information requests were denied. Some are making reference to her as the 'bionic nurse' for the number of hours she has worked, others are wondering if all of this overtime is on the up and up.
