I have noticed if I work a 16hr shift at the beginning of the week and work more than 40 hrs at the end of the week, the hours paid overtime even at the beginning of the week is subtracted from total hours worked. Is it the same for all other hospitals in Californai

Day 1 16hrs

Day 2 12 hrs

Day 3 12 hrs

Day 4 4 hrs.

Only double pay for Day 1

or should it be 1.5 for the last 4 hrs too?

It depends. Are you in a union? If you are, there are probably conditions regarding OT in your contact. Also employers get to define what a work day and a work week is. I worked at place where the new workday started at midnight. I worked PM shift, so if I worked OT past midnight and I had the next day off I wouldn't get OT pay.
