Low Census

  1. 0 Anyone else's hospital suffering from low census a a lot recently? Every time I turn around I am on call or floated. At least floating I am getting paid since I have no time left to cover all these on call days

    Yes. My workplace is afflicted by low census right now. However, I really do not mind having my shifts cancelled every once in a while. Enjoying an unexpected day off is good for my physical and mental health.

    I've been low censused twice this week. I enjoyed the days off, as I had stuff to take care of. But at the same time, I need the money. Is it something in the air, that no sick people are coming to the ED? Because even the ED was not so busy.

    We've been mostly packed to the rafters... And, I really hate to come in to 10+ empty beds, because no doubt we will get hammered later...

    Low census here as well.... seems like I float more than work my 'normal' job. It's better than nothing I guess

    Our census is picking up now. But very low from January through mid March.

    In Florida, we are still in "season" and are super packed, but soon the snowbirds will go home and we will have a nice slow summer. Can't wait. Flex me, please!
