Hazard Pay


Specializes in Oncology. Has 3 years experience.

Are there any other hospitals out there that are not paying hazard pay? Or is it just the hospital I work at 🤔?

Pediatric hospital here, only hazard pay currently on our one official covid special isolation unit. Even though those covid + patients usually start off on another floor.

Nope. Nothing extra.

At mine only the ER gets 5% and those on the behavior response team. No differential for covid

Working on a covid unit.... no hazard pay/nothing extra for us either.

Well, this week we got a free headband as a thank you from the CNO. 🙄

We also learned that from the money loss during the covid response merit raises are essentially non exisitant this year. 😬

Yeah, they tried that where I work but the union wasn’t having it.

No actual hazzard pay, but there is critical staffing for ECMO trained nurses when staffing gets tight. Extra $16 per hour.

I received random hazard pay when I was on my COVID unit. 6 hours here, 3 hours there ... when I asked my NM, she said that it was management’s way of “trying.”

Uh, OK?

Rumor has it that we’ll be getting it next week. That’s been the rumor since late March (next week). Just like ‘tomorrow’, next week never comes.

We got "retention pay" but not hazard pay. Not yet at least. The union is working on it.

No hazard pay even though we were the designated COVID unit and got dumped on. No raises either.

I've been getting it for awhile now. It really adds on a lot of money. Very grateful for it.

No hazard pay but we did get our merit increases, I got my chemo cert increase, and we just got a retention bonus the other week so $$$ in some form.

Nope. Hard to justify hazard pay for some while furloughing others.
