The hardest part of my job as the evening shift charge nurse is getting other people to do their’s. People seem to want to go toward entropy and are willing only to do what they perceive to be their job. And they are forever looking at the other people working the shift. And they are only willing to do exactly what the other person has done/is doing/has been assigned to do.
Me, I do whatever anyone else doesn’t do. But I have work of my own to do, a lot of work of my own to do. So, I cannot do your job for you.
I will not assign you to do many task.
I will not assign you to do something that I am not willing to do myself.
And that list is vanishingly small.
