Mandatory standby/call is a huge dissatisfier. The WSNA officers discussed this issue at length at nurse conference committee, and Overlake agreed to remove the requirement to sign up for mandatory standby shifts in L&D. On March 24, Peggy and Overlake administration instituted voluntary sign-up for standby shifts. As such, if nurses do not sign up for voluntary shifts, the previous mandatory sign up requirement for standby might be reinstated.
Please consider signing up for voluntary standby.
