Do you get incentive pay for Triage

  1. Hi guys, Triage is very busy and stressful in my hospital (like in most hospitals) I've heard that some hospitals pay from $1 to $3 x-tra for triage nurses, does anybody have any input on this, I'm trying to push for this Triage differential pay in my hospital in El Centro CA. I will appreciate your comments.

    HAHA! That sounds like a joke to me. Even being a relief charge for a day doesn't get you anything more.

    I need to move one state over. No triage,charge, or preceptor incentives here. I just finished a 3-day triage course and discovered our whole system is really bad.

    Getting paided extra for triage. Please tell me where you heard they were doing this. I'm a charge nurse at a busy ER and I get a whole dollar. Along with being a charge nurse-- I'm a transfer coordinator, triage nurse and a staff nurse. Sound fun huh?

    I have 2 dedicated Triage Nurses a shift (sometimes 3 if the ER is rockin'). They dont get a differential, but Relief Charge RNs and Preceptors get a 2 buck-an-hour increase.

    Extra pay for triage??? ummmmm NO. I get $1.25 per hour for being charge nurse. Our hospital does not give extra pay for triage or for preceptoring.

    You get extra pay for charge nurse?!!!?

    I think we just get battle pay for working in the ED altogether!
    Not to mention dumping pay that each of the inpatient units should kick in for!
