  1. Why hasn’t pay increased? Hazard pay, etc.? Especially considering that multiple hospitals lack supplies for PPE and we are frontline workers.

    Coronavirus and Pay

    Hello Everybody, I expect the working conditions to deteriorate soon. I do not feel we are compensated enough for what this epidemic will bring. My childcare cost will go up providing anybody wants to watch my kids knowing I take care of very sick people. Please share your thoughts on this topic. Thank you.

    Hazard Pay

    Dispatch in our hospital get .75 cents extra an hour for "hazard pay". That is, for handling hazardous waste eg, BAGGED soiled diapers, BAGGED garbage, Bagged biohazard items. Bagged soiled laundry. We nurses, who handle hazard directly from the source do not get hazard pay. Our hazards are not nicely bundled up for handling. Is is enough to say it's part of the job? I think we should work on commission, eg. a dollar for every bm we have do deal with, diarrhea of course would be extra as it would take longer to clean up. All other orifice donations would have a price. It's only fair!
  4. OK, I need a little help out there. I am currently working for a transport team out of a children's hospital. We do neonates/peds flight and ground transports. This is the second team I have worked for. The first team provided us with a "hazard pay" or differential for doing this job. So we got paid our salary + this diff. This diff was $6 an hour for doing this job. We got this diff at all times - training, meetings even PTO that we took - It was build into our base pay. My current transport team only pays us this diff ($4 an hour) when we are working transport - so mandatory training that is required for this job we do not get this diff pay -- just our base salary. I was curious if others out there wouldn't mind sharing there shift diff and if they get this pay at all times or just transport. We are a dedicated transport team so we do not get pulled off a unit to transport. The first place was Florida, Tennessee is where I am at now. Any flight nurses out there please answer: 1. Dedicated flight team Neo/peds or adults 2. State located 3. Diff amount (if you don't mind) 4. Is it built in your salary or just when you transport. THANK YOU! I'm trying to develop a plan to approach my management with. I think truly we should get paid the diff for all mandatory training and meetings as well as daily for our shifts. PTO is a plus would be nice but I want to see what ya'll have to say THANKS IN ADVANCE

    Crisis Pay

    Hi, all! I work at a small, community hospital ER. Right now due to flu season we are INUNDATED with pt's and the hospital is basically maxed out. We are holding tons of pt's in the ER and people are waiting 6 - 10 hours just to be seen. Because of this not as many RNs are picking up overtime. Now my facility is offering what they term "Crisis Rate", an extra X amount of dollars per shift when they are *very* short staffed. Has your hospital done this? How much extra do you normally get? I just want to get an idea of what people are getting offered so I know if what my hospital is offering is fair/enough or if I should hold out for more. Thank you!
