    Our hospital has a different type incident report for everything that could happen. The one you need is what we call a "Problem doc". Verbal complaints to the boss just get brushed aside but put it in writing and it's much harder to ignore.
    As for the visitor that complains, I always tell my assistant director, or the nsg supervisor to go talk with them now. We also by the way have a "patient complaint" form.
    Your job shouldn't have to be harder because of someone's laziness. Read up on your facilities policies for dealing with problems, and disciplinary action. The system usually works if you yank
    the right chains.
