So, I have a co-worker who came in quite sick today. A resident has gotten sick because of this. This is not the first time that this has happened.
She was supposed to work last weekend, but because she was sick, she called out. However, my LTC informed her that if she called out, she did so "at the peril of her job." She was supposed to work again today, but she was still sick. She attempted to call out, but the LTC blatantly told her no.
This CNA is a strong worker who usually comes in at least six days a week.
I live in Maine, for what it's worth.
If I am unwell, I call in. I don't try to work sick.
