I’ve been looking through the policies at the hospital I work at and I can’t find out what days of the week are considered the weekend.
I just want to get an idea of what other people’s workplace consider the weekend.

A good question for a great username, johnnymoney!
At Wrongway Regional Medical Center, weekend option people worked F-S-S or S-S-M. It's the same at Anomaly Memorial Hospital where my medical nurse wife Belinda works.
NICU Guy, BSN, RN
3pm Friday to 7 am Monday.

7pm Friday to 7am Monday
When I worked nights it was 7 PM Friday to 7 PM Sunday which sucked. I worked every Sunday night since that wasn't considered a weekend. I wasn't the kind of night shift worker who could stay up all day then go work a night shift, so I basically never had a full weekend off.

I work at two different hospitals, on night shift. At one hospital night shift is Saturday and Sunday night, at the other it is Friday and Saturday night.
1900 Friday to 0700 Monday.

Here in France midnght Saturday to midnight Sunday, so essentially just Sunday. Saturday does not attract enhanced pay.
The enhancement varies accrding to your length of service. If I work my 2 Sundays a month (so 24 hours of Sunday pay) that adds about €350 ($396 US) to my basic. All public holidays pay Sunday rate except our national day, Bastille Day (July 14th) which pays double, again midnight to midnight.
Being a night worker adds a night allowance of €530 ($600 US) to my basic. This is a set allowance which doesn't vary regardless how many nights you've worked, so if I'm off sick, take holiday or have a statutory training day in any month, the night allowance doesn't move.
