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 called 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?
