Our new contract at West Hills Hospital & Medical Center includes modified language on floating. RNs with an extra shift are now required to float on a rotational basis.
The current order of floating is as follows:
1. Float Pool 2. Volunteers 3. Agency and travelers 4. Per Diem 5. All other employees on a rotational basis. Notwithstanding his/her place in the floating rotation, an employee who is on call-back, or is working an extra shift, whether scheduled or unscheduled, may be required to float, but will retain his/her place in the rotation. Any float counts toward the rotational basis requirement.
