A friend of mine works (as do many speech-language patholo-gists) for a rehab company that provides services to skilled nursing facilities (SNFs). Recently, “the company” called an emergency evening meeting to tell the regional speech-language pathologists that they had to start working one weekend every 6 weeks. They would have to report to facilities up to 300 miles round-trip from their main worksites, perhaps to see only one patient. These weekend stints would follow their regular 5-day work week and would be followed by the next 5-day work week. That adds up to 12 days without a break. When my friend (whom I’ll call “Anne”) pointed that out, she was told that she could try to take some comp time if her regular caseload was down. It seldom is. She often works 10-hour days, eating lunch on-the-run.
