    For those that say the on-call nurse or management should have worked the shift, let me give you a true scenario. When I am On-call, I still work my regular hours. I work five days a week,...

    No. It is not ethically, nor morally correct to suggest depends because you don't want to push a wheelchair 200 feet to the bathroom. By your own admission, you aren't doing any physically...
