RE: weeekend work


In the past when I did this (as a diener, not a PA) I charged $2.50 hr call
pay (48hr for normal weekend/72hr for 3 day) and $100 flat rate per autopsy.
I normally can do a full autopsy with cleanup in 2-3 hours so this worked
out great.  Don't let them stiff you with a reduced rate for limited
autopsies.  I would get the call pay or autopsy pay which ever was greater.
I hope this helps.  For reference I did those cases in Dayton, Ohio.  The
cost of living should be close to that of Augusta.
