Very unexpected bonus at work!

May 9th, 2017 at 04:13 pm

One of the things that I became eligible for when I became part time at the urgent care job at the end of February is a quarterly incentive program. I actually didn't even learn about that until after I had already started and got an email that talked about it.

I had absolutely no idea how much this incentive would be and it isn't really something I was going to ask about. I figured whatever I get is a bonus and money I didn't already have. I also didn't know if I'd be in the incentive pool for the first quarter since I didn't become part time until February 26, 2/3 of the way through the quarter.

Anyway, as the title of this post says, I was eligible for the first quarter. What I still don't know is if the amount I received was prorated for the amount of time I was part time. I will ask that question the next time I speak to the director.

Paychecks came out today and I was very pleasantly surprised to see that in addition to my regular paycheck, there was a second check for this bonus in the amount of $2,069! I figured the bonus might be a couple hundred dollars at best so getting ten times that much was sweet. If that's what I can expect every 3 months, that's a huge perk that I didn't know about. This job gets better every day.

    Nice for you! But what exactly are they incentivizing you for?

    The bonus is based on a variety of performance measures and quality of care metrics. For example, turn around time for seeing patients, scores on patient satisfaction surveys, not ordering xrays on back pain patients, not prescribing antibiotics for viral infections, attendance at department meetings, etc. So some clinical stuff and some administrative stuff.

    ccf - This system really emphasizes quality of care, patient satisfaction, best practices, etc. That's one of the things I really like about working there.
