Lately census has been low. We take turns with cancellations. My problem is with our hospital's unwritten but absolutely expected to comply policy. If a nurse works a 12 hr shift s/he is not cancelled but "delayed". Which means that you have to be available or on call for the hospital in case you are needed at 3p or ll pm if nights. So it's not really like being off cause you're waiting, can't schedule other places. (many of nurses work agencies also). Is this typical?
