That teacher said that to you in front of the whole group???? How very rude, condescending, and mean, among other words I won’t say here. You really will have more educators that are good ones. Finish up this class and keep going forward Tiff !!! There will always, ALWAYS, be a need for nurses. Jamie had a wonderful list going of what you could do. I will add a couple more that are less physical, but still so important: PAT(pre admission testing) and patient education-that may be a part of case management, depending on hospital size. Also if you are a phebotomist, you could certainly qualify for the iv team-maybe requires a lot of walking, but the hospital may allow you a scooter-hey, throw that iv tray in your basket and you’re off!! Just some food for thought. Let us know what your grade is on your paper on GBS:D Emma
print out as much info. as possible to this “&*!@&*” at work and show the proof you have from this website, many other sites and your doctor that it CAN happen; and the residual effects, (if you’re lucky enough to be stuck with them) as MOST of us on this website are; are a LIFETIME of complications. alot of us; (i for one), am on permanent disability because of it.
show your human resources person (and i use the term loosly), the statistics that doby48 states above. “we the people” of this website will give them more information about your condition than they’ll know what to do with. print it all out and have them put it in your employee file. that kind of “harrassment” at work is absolutely unacceptable!!! 😡 if it continues after you’ve enlightened them, let us know. there are other actions you can take. trust me, the harrassment will stop. you hang in there and keep us posted.
