Cottage Hospital Employee Parking Issues?
By an edhat reader
My spouse works for Cottage Hospital. I'm sure everyone has seen the little white stickers on bumpers around town that serve as parking permits - these allow you to park in the Cottage parking lots. Cottage has for years allowed these permits to be placed on the employee's bumper, or otherwise be visible to security - many people who don't want their employer broadcast on their vehicle day to day place their sticker on their dash or rear window to accomplish this. Either way, employees swipe into an employee only lot with an RF badge - so it is a relatively secure place.
Cottage security employees have begun booting vehicles that don't have the permit permanently affixed to their vehicle, seemingly arbitrarily, with no change broadcasted to the standard operating procedure of the past. Nurses have left 12 hour shifts taking care of COVID patients to find their vehicle immobilized. If you walk through the lot, probably 10% of vehicles don't have the stickers affixed, including some really nice vehicles driven by top level administrators.
