    weekend coverage

    Hi,

    I work in the acute care setting in a small community hospital. I am trying to find out what the requirements are for weekend coverage in hospital settings...we currently have an 'on-call' rotation, where we come in for new evaluations on Saturdays if needed. However, we are now down to 3 covering OTs and it's difficult. I have tried searching the CMS website for regulations on this, but it is difficult to navigate. I was wondering what other hospitals around the country (specifically in NC, but would love to hear from others as well) are doing about weekend staffing. Thanks!
