Baylor Benefits?

  1. 0
    I am a new LPN (graduated in Aug. '04). I am working the baylor plan at a LTC facility. However, I was the very first person ever hired there for the baylor shifts. I would like to know the benefits of any other establishment for the baylor shift workers. The facility I work at is as follows: Shift diff, weekend diff, work 12 get paid for 15 (three shifts per week on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), no holidays/vacation. They also just instituted PTO where I work and I am not sure yet how that is going to work or if I'll get it.
    I requested a Friday & Saturday off recently and was told that I'd have to find my own replacement. After 9 months of working EVERY weekend and never calling out/having been late needless to say I was unhappy. Especially after the DON had just told me that "we" were allowed 2 weekends off per year. Sorry for getting on my soapbox for a minute... anyway, I just really want to know what the benefits are normally of a baylor shift employee. Since I am a new nurse and working at a facility that is just now starting on the baylor plan I am a little unclear of what is to be expected (as I think they are as well). Thanks for your time!

    Kimmie...Baylor plan employees are just like any other employee. The Baylor plan simply describes the shift that you work. Does your agency normally offer any benefits to staff who work as few as 12 - 15 hours a week? That would be my first question and then I'd also determine if the other staff have to find their own replacements when they off? Many facilities don't provide benefits for anyone who works less than 20 hours a week.

    I'd say that it might be time to dust off your resume and look around to see what other job might interest you!

    Thanks for your reply... I did edit my post to make it a little easier to read.. I do work 36hrs/week and am considered full time. No other employee has to find their own replacement for a request day off.

    I am Baylor (LOVE IT) and we work just Sat/Sun 12 hr shifts and get paid for 36. Considered full time, get full benefits, and I also have to find my own coverage. When I take a weekend off I have to use 18 hrs of PTO to cover each shift. We get 3 weekends off a year. Did I mention that I love it and that I wouldn't give it up for the world? :roll

    I work the Baylor plan at a LTC facility. Work Sat/Sun night and one night during the week, equaling 36hrs total but i get paid for 44hrs. I have full benefits, insurance, holidays, vacation. I have been told that if i ever took a weekend day off that I wouldn't be paid the extra 8hours for that week. Also, there is no shift dif where i work.

    If you notice, most of us replied with how our specific Baylor plans were. But basically it is working the weekend, and getting paid for more hours than you work.

    Guess you gotta get ultra specific with the floor supervisor when you sign the contract.
