I work on a floor that only houses PUIs and positive COVID 19 patients that are not medically stable to go home, but do not require a ventilator. Some of my fellow nurses believe we should receive hazardous duty pay. I have been in management (previous carrier before nursing) and think that we would look foolish asking for this. I mean why would the hospital pay it with the low census numbers and a tanking economy. One nurse claims she "heard from somebody that somebody told them" they are getting $25.00 extra pay

I would be very interested if anyone is getting more pay if so how much. Personally I would like to see more staff on the floor, more on that in my next question

I work in outpatient dialysis and everyone that works in the clinical setting gets an extra 2 dollars hour for the time being. They also pay $100 a day for child care since schools are closed. We do have a designated Covid 19 dialysis unit that runs an evening shift for positive patients and a evening shift for PUI and they pay an extra 25% on top of the 2 dollars an hour.
