I've been with Verizon for several years now. I love the service. I know Verizon is running promos these days for NURSES and first responders. I'm a respiratory therapist and would like to ask if Verizon will have discounts for other healthcare team members. My best bet is that my career is maintaining respirators and ventilators. I called Verizon and they stated the ones listed for eligible discounts only. Hopefully Verizon will expand more team members eligible for discounts.
I have the same problem; when I called Verizon today to to inquire about the promotions for teachers, first responders, nurses, etc. I was told that I’m not eligible because the discount is for nurses. I’m not taking anything away from the nurses; but I’m a respiratory therapist who’s been taking care of patients on ventilators in the ICU during the pandemic. I hope Verizon will reconsider and open up their horizon to include other healthcare providers.
I too, am a Respiratory Therapist and have the same complaint. I have been with Verizon for 18 years & would love to see them recognize ALL hospital staff with this discount, rather than just nurses! We are ALL working hard on the frontlines.
yes we deal first and foremost and treat Covid Patients in the most critical of life saving measures. We actually manage breathing when the covid patient can no longer carry on breathing on their own.
Im definitely considering another carrier if they cannot recognize the most important discipline involved with helping the covid-19 patient breathe.
Its a pretty sad state of affairs; what is the world coming to?
The last thing that we want is for you to leave our Verizon family. We will be happy to address any concerns that you have in mind. What exact questions do you have in mind regarding this issue? DavidR_VZW
I cannot believe you asking what the question is! She is asking why is it that respiratory therapist don’t get the same discount as nurses do. Respiratory therapist see and take care of more COVID-19 patients than any nurse, one Respiratory therapist takes care of a full ICU unit where a nurse has 1-3 patients. It’s not fair...
