    When they tell you they will pay overtime, your next question should be, "When do you want me to stay for overtime, and who decides? If my shift ends at 4 and a stat CT comes in at 3:59, do I leave at 4 or stay for OT?"

    For physicians, I feel we need to take care of the patients first, and that means staying to sign out or to finish a note without demanding extra pay.

    However, for a radiologist, I would think that completing the read on the study that came at 3:59 and then leaving at 4:05 is reasonable. If there are more stat studies to be read beyond that time, they need to pay OT or send those leftover studies to the teleradiology service.
    110% agree. Sometimes, I think that communication is becoming a lost art. Not blaming millennials, as the older generation has just as much responsibility.

      The problem not all studies can be read in 6 minutes. The study that shows up at 3:59 is more often than not some post op disaster.
