RE: Tissue Processor Alarms and being on call

From:"Cheasty, Sandra"

In one lab I worked it went like this...  If you were required to be available by phone, you were paid on-call. If they called you and you happened to be home, you DIDN'T get paid on-call. BUT... you did get paid a minimum of 1 hour overtime for the phone call. (Or "calls" if it took more than one) If you didn't answer the phone, they'd try another tech.

Subject: Tissue Processor Alarms and being on call

I have been reading the discussion for being on-call for the tissue processors.  How would you all work it if you didn't have to go in but were able to troubleshoot the problem over the phone.  This happens to me occassionally (actually more often than I would like) and the phone call may or may not be brief, but then of course I'm up for another hour trying to go back to sleep.  It'starting to get frustrating!  I usually write in the time I was on the phone, but would on-call apply here also?
