    I'm interested in hearing what those of you who moonlight make on an hourly basis. The place where I moonlight hasn't raised its wages in as long as I can remember (7 years) and I wonder if we're being underpaid.

    We have a few moonlighting options in-house and a new one coming up that's outside but kind of in-house (a new long-term care hospital in the area). VA weekend night coverage (admits up to 8 patients and cross-covers 2 teams - up to 32 patients) pays $60 an hour for a 12-hour shift. Nights in the BMT unit pays $70-75 an hour for a 12 hour shift. The long-term care hospital offers $500 for a 12 hour weekend or night shift.

    i sit on my a$$ for 12 hours (its really boring), and get paid $60/hour for goint to rapid responses (very rare, 1, maybe 3 times a day) and reading PICC line films once in a while, i do NO admissions.

    i thought about going for a higher paying moonlighting job, but i didn't want to work.

    At a local hospital, I do call for $50 an hour... 12 hour shifts... but there's really not much to this call. I get to do a lot of reading :)

    When I do locums for clinics.. I charge $250 per half day.

    Urgent Care $50/hr - three hour shifts during the week and 6 or 9 hour shifts on the weekend.

    We also have a contract with a rehab hospital that we cover at night. 7-7. Get paid $450. Really don't to do a whole lot. Read a few xrays upon arrival verying tube placements and run an occasional code. For the most part it's sleeping for dollars

    Over the last five years in my area the wages have not gone up either.

    I would say that when you moonlight you get paid the equivalant of if you were an attending adjusted to an hourly basis. That is true where I am.

    I've seen moonlighting ER jobs for as much as 130/hr in some rural areas. But with that comes the pitfalls of a rural ER.
