Yes I do. One of the advantages of working 11-7. I don't work under anyone's direct supervision. My boss isn't there. I can clock them out if they are insubordinate. If someone doesn't show up I can call around and fill their spot.
I can absolutely believe she said that to you. I sent one home a couple of weeks ago who sat in the break room for 2 hours and thirty minutes. I work the middle hall so I have 24 residents on one end and 16 on another. I was on the other end the first part of the shift. Anyway, when I told her to go home she said "No. I'm not going no where. Even if you clock me out I'll still stay." I had to threaten to call the police. If she had worked when she was clocked in to start with there wouldn't have been a problem.
Just this week an aide was sent home for being obviously under the influence of something. She said she "started a new medication" but couldn't remember what and didn't have it with her. Her gait was unsteady, her speech was slurred, and she didn't make sense half of the time.
So, in short, not much surprises me. I'm glad that when my bosses come in at 7am that they back me up.
