and then decide at the last minute that they don't want them! LOL Don't even get me started!!!! I am part time so everyone likes to bug the crap out of me about their scheduling issues. I love my weekend schedule and I am keeping it. There was a nasty note from management a while back regarding greedy shift takers who sign up for waaaaay too much and then call the other staff the night before the assigned shift to try to get coverage. The problem was that they were covering their shift with another person who eventually called off requiring us to call agency... What a mess! So, finally, after three tries, there was a warm body covering the shift...

This is a good system! If they call off a certain amount of times per month, don't allow them to pick up anything else... I think that non-emergent shift switches should have to go through the scheduler. They should not be calling other staff members at home for shifts they picked up and want to dump at the last minute... That is why the ringer is off on my house phone and has been ever since I started working in nursing 8 years ago! Haha.
