Taking call on Shabbat


The issue of taking call on Shabbat is rather complex, with many views; you may wish to listen to my shiur on the topic here.

Rav Moshe Feinstein ruled that a physician who knows before Shabbat that he will be needed to save lives on Shabbat is required to arrange a place to stay in the hospital, or nearby, for Shabbat.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 1:131)

Have a great day,
