So, this is my first NIGHT on my 5th week of orientation and I'm sick. Feel like I've been hit by a truck actually. I woke up with a sore throat, earache and headache on Saturday morning and have pretty much stayed in bed until now since I have to be to work in 2 hours. I've worked at this hospital for 12 years as a CNA so I know I shouldn't call in unless I'm practically dying. We only get 5 sick days a year & anything after that we are put on probation. Even tho I really shouldn't be going to work, I kinda HAVE to. Especially since I'm still on orientation.
What really urks me is, they have signs all over the hospital saying "Please stay home if you're sick" but it doesn't apply to employees...
Anyone else feel that way where they work?
Plus, I always get headaches when I have to wear a mask the entire shift. *sigh*
