Do long hours of work still exists today? How many hours per week (avg) do you work? Do you see medical facilities in your area reducing or increasing hours?

Your ER must not have much of an issue with boarding pts waiting for beds upstairs. During the week my ER is routinely boarding double digit pts, for anywhere from 12-36hrs. The other ER's in my town are the same way, and from what I have heard our ER actually has less boarders than other ER's in town. The one ER tends to board around 40 pts a day during the week.
So yeah, when we are boarding they are calling ER nurses as well as med-surg nurses to see if anyone wants some OT boarding.
I have never boarded any pts nor have I seen us board any. So we are lucky in that regard too. We arent largest ER or hospital but it just hasnt been an issue yet
35 hours a week. I wanted less than that but they only had FT avail. No complaints though because I LOVE my job. I also like the schedule of two on two off and I can work more in a row if I want a week off for a vacay.
