Exactly...the thing is we haven't slowed down as expected during the holidays. We were busy straight through with an increase in our census. Overtime is encouraged in our unit due to some staff leaving and we're always short staffed. However, "incidental" overtime is being severely monitored. So our reports are short and sweet and you'd better explain yourself (in writing) why you're clocking out late.
Our facility did remove our "critical need staffing" shift differential, which allowed nurses to place yourself on call with extra pay if you're called in. But so far, not too much has changed on the clinical end of things. I think that makes me worry just a little.
