Fire marshall duties and paid for 8 hours? - need advice

  1. our DON has decided that the nurse on the 2nd floor must be the one who takes charge if/when the fire alarm rings. this will be for each 8 hour period, my question is, if the nurse has to be in charge for 8 hours, shouldnt she get paid for 8 hours? there is no relief...so essentially , this nurse can not leave the building for her half hour lunch break...management said they'll look into it...I wonder how other places manage this? any suggestions would be appreciated
