    To the original poster...thank you for telling an online community of nurses that you are grateful for all of us. I will give the benefit of the doubt in light of the insults that have been hurled in this thread, and focus on the positive.

    Nonetheless, the point has been made and this thread will be closed before it has the chance to implode with more nastiness. Have a pleasurable day, everyone.

    My suggestion is, get on a tight budget. If you pay off 15,000 a year, it'll be gone in 4 years plus interest. The faster you pay it down, the less interest.

    Don't take out any other loans until you get this paid off. That means, drive an old car that you pay cash for.

    Yes, that is workplace violence , he threatened you. He was also interfering with the functioning of the unit. You need to report this to your manager stat.

    Do not make excuses for him. It is not your duty to get him "help". Let administration deal with this OUTRAGEOUS behavior.

    I fail to see the connection between your title "because he can't pay hospital bill" and the article that describes a man who wrote bad checks to multiple businesses. Regardless of the health issues he faces, he still wrote bad checks to his local businesses which is grounds for penalty. I see the health issues and the bad checks as completely separate issues.

    It is generally considered illegal to knowingly write checks where there is insufficient funds.

    Being jailed for fraudulently writing checks is not the same as being jailed for not being able to pay.

    BTW, curious to see if anyone will post criticism of the legal challenges posed to those who do not pay child support.
