Our acute unit and chronic center are hospital owned and staffed by RNs and LPNs only. LPNs can do acutes only if there is a dialysis RN present, or at least close by. The acute unit is under the ICU manager. On call is one hour extra pay for being called in and 2 hours pay per 12 hours of carrying the beeper. Base pay is $26 before shift, weekend, and charge diffs. We are ICU cross trained and help out there if things get slow, very rare these days.
