Rbnz Posted October 29, 2015 Share Posted October 29, 2015 So I am a new grad and am working in surgery doing general, OB/GYN and ortho along with some family practice on the side. This is a critical access hospital in arizona. We only take first assist call. So if a surgeon needs a first assist on a case in the middle of the night we get a call. Here is the break down of on call pay. We (as there are 3 PAs who split this call) get $46 for every 8 hours of call. And if we have to come in we clock in and out as we are paid hourly. If we get called in for a lap appy and it takes 30 min, that time is added to our 2 week pay check. That 30 min time is also subtracted from the 8 hour call time as well. If all 3 of us are gone for a weekend they have PAs that they call in and pay them 1500 for 2 days of being on call. This is a huge difference from what we would make for a weekend of call. I know some people get paid for at least 2 hours work even if they are there for 30 min. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated. I don't know what the norm is or if this is actually good pay for call. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
