Call Pay

  1. I am interested in the call pay at other facilities. We currently get paid $1.00 per hour to carry the beeper and time and a half when we get called in. I would like to know what others are getting paid to be on call for endoscopy and what city and state you are from. Thanks in advance for responding.

    We get $3.00/hr while on beeper, time and a half for hours actually worked and we get paid for an additional hour beyond those worked which is considered travel time. We also are paid for a minimum of 4 hours when called in, even if we are only there for 1 hour. Madison, WI

    Jackie,

    We get $4.00 per hour for being on call, time and a half if called in, and are paid a minimum of 2 hours. I should mention that I am a tech, not yet a nurse, but the call pay is the same for our nurses. Nurses only do call on weekends from 0800-1400, any other times it is a tech and pts have to be in the ED or ICU, where their nurse can sedate. My understanding is that nurses used to do all of the call and they like this arrangement a lot more. I almost forgot I am in the Denver metro area.

    I was just wondering how are the FT GI nurse scheduled when they have a call weekend? Is OT ok ? Does your unit flex your time during the week? are you scheduled normally or asked to leave early during the week- if the census drops/ or the schedule is done..? I'm trying to evalute a " fair " call procedure...to prevent OT ( if possible ) but save our budget and maintain employee satisfaction...HELP!

    We receive $2/ hr when you're on-call. Minimum of 4 hr. pay when called in. It's OT if you work 40 hr/wk. May be sent home early if the unit is quiet and you have OT. We flex., (leave early) if quiet, and you take either no pay, vacation, or PTO (paid time off). Some staff work in other dept's. when flexed so they don't lose too much vacation time. I'm from upstate NY. hope this helped.
