We have on call tech for the Sunday. They are paid a small on-call wage and
given 2 extra hours for call back pay as well as time and a half for the
time they are here if they do get called in. Our docs don't usually call
except for frozens.

	Hi folks,

	Wondering if many labs have on-call Histotechs?  We currently don't,
but our
	docs are interested in having something more formal than the
scramble that
	happens when they REALLY need a stat GMS or AFB on the weekends.  I
	there are a variety of ways to do call systems, and would appreciate
	input on what your lab does.  Do you rotate?  How often?  Are you
paid for
	the entire call time, or just the time you are called in?  How are
	notified; home phone, cell phone, pager?  Any info would be VERY
helpful :-)
