Meal breaks in patient transport services
I am thinking about applying for an RN position with HealthShare – patient transport services. I believe they have a different approach to meal breaks.
Clause 4(x)(d) of the Public Health System Nurses’ and Midwives’ (State) Award 2017 sets out the meal break provisions applicable to nurses employed by HealthShare to work
in their patient transport services.
In short, you receive a paid crib break of 30 minutes, which is counted as part of your time worked. However, if you are unable to access this crib break within the prescribed times or is not completed, additional payments arise.
