There's no one size fits all situation. The norm for us is to remain running and hot load. I'll occasionally shut down if it looks like an extended scene time for a prolonged extrication or whatever. More often than not eventually some kind of a LZ security issue develops if we stay long enough. People are stupid and often disregard first responders on the scene. I have watched people drive around police and fire vehicles, thru the grass and ditch, and into the LZ perimeter. I get more satisfaction being able to yell and throw flashlights when I'm outside of the helicopter.
