I can tell you I am not exaggerating. While I was in "orientation" for this role I am far from a newbie nurse. I have worked night shift for some time and can understand the need to take a quick nap, run stairs, etc. This behavior is clearly beyond that. It's downright neglectful, and it makes the rest of the nurses on the unit cover his patients. It's absurd. I told those who complain to me to speak up if they are unhappy with the situation. I am not going to make a big deal out of the situation because clearly it isn't going to change, but it still upsets me. Patients deserve better and so do the rest of the nurses on the unit. I am busy enough with my own patients, I don't need to be covering another nurses while they get paid to sleep.
