PUBLIC SECTOR AND PRIVATE RESIDENTIAL AGED CARE WAGES COMPARISON.

PRIVATE ACUTE HOSPITALS [Please note this section has not been updated in this edition]

This section of Paycheck contains updated information on enterprise agreement data in the Private Acute Hospital sector.

The ABS reports there are approximately 300 private acute and psychiatric hospitals in Australia providing a total of 31,029 beds. The majority (62%) operate on a 'for profit" basis while a further 28% are religious or charitable 'not for profit" hospitals with the remainder being considered other not for profit hospitals (bush nursing, community and memorial hospitals). (24)

There are a total of 56,323 registered nurses, enrolled nurses and midwives employed in private hospitals across Australia. The vast majority are registered nurses and midwives who comprise 86% of the nursing workforce in this sector. (25)

The NHWDS shows there are 40,172 full time equivalent nurses and midwives based on a 38 hour week.

The following table provides average wages data based on 125 enterprise agreements covering 93% of private hospitals across Australia.

The difference between the average rates of pay nationally between the top rate for an RN Level 1 in the public sector and the top rate for an RN Level 1 in the private acute sector is less than 1 % or 34 cents per hour calculated on the base rate.
