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!
