§5-5-4a. Psychiatrists, nurses and aides classifications.

(a) The Legislature finds that Mildred Mitchell-Bateman

Hospital and William R. Sharpe, Jr. Hospital have extreme

difficulty in recruiting and retaining physicians, physician

specialists, nurses, nursing directors, health service workers,

health service assistants, health service associates and other

employees who assist in the direct provision of medical care to

patients in those facilities.

(b) The West Virginia Division of Personnel and the Department

of Health and Human Resources jointly shall develop pay rates and

employment requirements to support the recruitment and retention of

physicians, physician specialists, nurses, nursing directors,

health service workers, health service assistants, health service

associates or other positions at Mildred Mitchell-Bateman Hospital

and William R. Sharpe, Jr. Hospital. Pay rates shall reflect the

regional market rates for relevant positions. The pay rates and

employment requirements shall be put into effect by July 1, 2009.

(c) Funding for the pay rates and employment requirements

shall be provided from the appropriation to the Department of

Health and Human Resources. Due to the limits of funding, the

implementation of the pay rates and employment requirements shall

not be subject to the provisions of article two, chapter six-c of

this code. The provisions of this section are rehabilitative in

nature and it is the specific intent of the Legislature that no

private cause of action, either express or implied, shall arise pursuant to the provisions or implementation of this section.
