They won't LET you although you are pregnant and have a doctors note? Maybe it's time to find a new job? =/

I know. I don't know if you've ever read any of my previous posts, but it's been time to find a new job. I guess I'll just go in and hope I don't pass out, because I know they won't let me go to the ER.

You need to call IOSHA.. They're endangering you and the patients.

I'm not going in. I can barely stand up right now and my heart is pounding. It could take me months to get into a cardiologist, so I'm going to the ER. Hopefully I don't get fired.

You have a doctor's note, they could get their ass in some serious trouble. If you don't get a chance to post your updates on BG, text me!! Good Luck mama <3

Thanks, hun. I'm going to fax them my note and talk to HR tomorrow. I feel awful, and I only slept for 3 hours.

I haven't but I can understand why you would need to if this is the way they are treating you.

I'm glad you are going to rest, I hope you feel better & everything is ok!

Good luck. If they do fire you, raise hell, lots of it. Them being understaffed is their issue, not yours, although you are the one that pays the price of it.

My nurse is kind of snarky. They did an EKG and they're giving me some IV fluids. Now I wait...
