I almost was ready to strangle to death a fellow CNA who left a very large and helpless lady dangling in midair in a lift while he ran out of the room looking for me to help him do his work that he was not up to. I told him how much of a safety hazard he was placing upon the poor resident and after dealing with him for a good portion of the shift, finally complained to the charge nurse. She talked to him and suddenly he just "had to leave work early". I ended up finishing his residents as well as my own. Actually, he had only taken care of two residents, one of them being the lady he endangered. I was better off working alone that night. I mean, really, how distracted do you have to be to leave a large person who is not with it, dangling in midair in the lift? She was not even over the bed, where any fall could have been broken by the bed. That CNA quit soon thereafter. Not cut out for the job.
