Too bad DOH (or whatever appropriate agency/organization) doesn't make a surprise visit to your facility during a night shift.
I used to constantly remind colleagues that it could just as easy be their loved one. Is the care they're providing acceptable, if that were their family member?
Not important to them to care!
And state DOH inspectors can and do make spot checks on facilities at different off duty hours. Only problem is that they must ring the doorbell and that wakes up everyone on NOC. So that amount of activity has just negated the possible 'sneak attack' approach.
What could work would be for the DON to come to the facility and let herself in the side door/back door using her own facilty door key. Then she'd catch the sleepers sleeping! (But then again, if her car's headlights had to shine in into the front window's view of the parking lot, it wouldn't work. I know - been there, done that!).
But unless disciplinary action will be undertaken, ho hum ...
Any chance some staff might be union
? Sleeping on the job would be a BIG violation in the employee conduct protocol. Writing up a discipline notice in that vein sometime might work better.
