Vacation Schedule Appointments
- The Database Manager will be sending out appointment dates for vacation planning in February. The appointments will be scheduled by seniority at your current assigned work site. Appointments to discuss vacation plans will be done via phone on scheduled appointment date or in person at main office site which is at the HSC.
- Feel free to discuss amongst your team members at your site. At a site, if there are overlapping requests for vacation weeks that cannot be resolved, then seniority will be the deciding factor. I will do my best to try and meet most well deserved vacation request times.
Post entitlement list in Local Office
Please POST a copy of the vacation entitlement list in your office once it is emailed to you.

Program Operational Requirements & Vacations scheduling
The ICU and Medicine database program are not separate programs. Operationally, there will be ‘one person ‘’’ allowed to be off for vacation at any given time at a Hospital site. This is subject to change.
- 1 week of vacation equals 7 consecutive days.
- vacation hours earned for your EFT including excess earned, are paid proportionately during the total number of weeks of vacation a person is entitled to. Excess vacation earn does not entitle a nurse to additional days or weeks of vacation. It is also paid out proportionately during weeks of vacation selected. (paid out as cash during a vacation week).
- work rotation may change to accommodate vacation requested and to fulfill EFT requirement in a 4 week rotation.
- If you are not certain of work rotation changes, please contact p:Pagasa Torres.
- Vacations earned for EFT is divided up amongst weeks vacation entitled to and days are paid the same way that the number of minimum shifts required per week in each 4 week rotation for your EFT.
- When stats fall on a week you take vacation then number of regular days worked vs number of vacation days paid will be adjusted.
If the current annual vacation is not used or scheduled by January 15th, then the Employer has the right to schedule the vacation prior to the end of the current vacation year (March 31). E.G. If a nurse has not scheduled their three save days. This is an operational requirement. Thank you for your cooperation.
