It drives me nuts that there are some people who will finish their work and then sit down the rest of the shift! They do whoever is on their assignment (probably half-assed), and then they park themselves in a chair the rest of the night and ignore the call lights. It's bad enough that they don't do any of our secondary tasks, like passing snacks, doing vitals or chores, but it really peeves me when I'm the only one running around for the last 2 hours of a shift doing all that, and then I have to answer lights on top of it while the lazy person just sits there and has the nerve to complain about the job or roll her eyes when you need help with someone heavy! And then when she sits there and oh-so-helpfully informs you that so-and-so is ringing, I just want to smack her! Go and answer it yourself- I'm busy doing everything else!
If I finish my assignment before other people, I keep working! I ask the others if they need any help or I look for something that didn't get done earlier. Once in a while if you're having a bad day then fine, who cares? But this is night after night. These people do this right in front of the supervisors, and nothing is said. I was talking about it with another coworker and she said she went to the DON about the same thing a while ago, and the DON had a meeting (so as not to single anyone out), and nothing has changed.
