"I can think of one additional good that could come out of it. If you are working a cardiac arrest or have a critical run, you can use it to help with documentation of times and treatments (if your machines' times are synched). You can go…"

Kalynne replied to theNaptownMedic's discussion Night Pay
"Night differential is 1.60 per hour for 6 hours.  If called out, then there is time and a half of regular pay for the duration of the call.  Despite relative absence of pay for night duty, we are obligated to stay in house."
