I currently work at a hospital operated by St John of God. What is the like-for-like replacement policy when absences occur?
Clause A8(c) of the St John of God Health Care Hawkesbury District Health Service and New South Wales Nurses and Midwives’ Association/ANMF NSW Branch Nursing and Midwifery Enterprise Agreement 2017 sets out that when a nurse or midwife is absent and a replacement needed, the level of skill required will be determined by the NUM or ward management based on operational requirements. If
‘like-for-like’ is found necessary
(e.g. registered nurse for a registered nurse), the hospital will need to undertake all reasonable avenues
to fill this requirement.
