The hospital also does a Christmas dinner for us too. Someone has to work on the holidays, and they realize that most would rather be at home having a traditional dinner, so they are decent enough to provide 2 free meals a year for the staff who are working.
I erred about the price for the spouse. I think it's only $2.50 and children under a certain age are free.
Patients and their family and friends get the same reduced price as the spouse.
The best work Christmas dinner I had while nursing was when I was a student nurse. The hospital I went to school at really had a huge feast. Total traditional Ukrainian dinner with cabbage rolls, perogies, ham, turkey etc. It was real turkey too, not that turkey roll stuff. Where I work its not as elaborate and we get turkey roll instead of the real roasted turkey.
