Anyone please who is a social worker that does on-call work in an emergency room!!!!!!!!! How are you compensated? Are you paid per hour that you carry the pager, and then receive a higher rate if you get called in?? What are the compensation rates? Do you not get paid anything unless you are called in? Currently I am a psych ed social worker that gets paid nothing while I am on call, unless I get paid in, and then it is only $100.00. I am not paid upon how many people I evaluate or the hour. Just a straight 100. What are others getting?

we work on call on a rotational basis every 6-9 weeks. we are in house in the hospital on Sat and take a day off which is a floating day off which we and the supervisor schedule. Sundays on call is the problem. We are on call by phone. We have no access to hospital computer(although this is available) so we don't have the tools to do our job and we are paid nothing or offered no other compensation. If we were able to log on remotely it would track the log in time and then there would have to be some compensation for on call essentially.
