All staff, including Nurse Pool associates, canceled due to low census are subject to being placed in an "on-call status" for the duration of the shift. The staff asked to be "on-call" must be available by phone. On-call personnel will be paid at the designated rate for each hour on-call. Call-back pay is payable when an associate is summoned to return to the hospital. Call-back pay is paid at one and on-half the regular rate of pay and should continue at this rate for the entire time the associate is needed, or at a minimum of two hours or until the beginning of the associate's regular shift. Nurse Pool associates will follow the organization On Call & Call Back Pay Policy.
