On Call

  1. I work in a community hospital in Pediatrics .... after working there 19 years I was told we had to do ON CALL so we would have pediatric nurses come help when we had an influx of pediatric patients... soon after, the pediatric census dropped and the MANDATORY on call was used for over flow of adults... we were upset by this and were told by administration that med-surg would do on call also which of course they REFUSED.... do any of you who take overflow of med-surg have MANDATORY ON CALL??
