Allright guys, here is my problem: My mom works as a CNA?CMA in a nursing home. The nursing home is forcing people to take flu shots this year. My mom has never taken a flu shot, she is just a... Read More

    It's not just that she does not want to, she is really really affraid. She reacts to a lot of meds. Our grandma got a flu shot and got really sick, had to go to the hospital. It's as much about really being afraid of that shot as it is about princible.

    That is not acceptable. I seriously hope it's some sort of prank (on the part of the staff against the OP's mother), but fear that it might be true. If it were my mom, I'd go and hide in the place with a video camera so I could record her beating the tar out of the staff attacking her. :trout:

    Definitely keep working all of the angles to get those nuts prosecuted or at least have their licenses revoked.

    That was meant as a joke.

    Fight, fight, fight!! I really think that all of the nurses here in this forum should send positive thoughts, prayers, light candles (whatever you believe in), to render energy and strength to the OP, her mother and all of the employees there that have already suffered much humiliation and the reduction of their rights as humans. As another poster said, what happens to the residents if THEY refuse??

    See, I wish for the managers to get fired moreso than the employees getting the repercussions, because it was as I thought...a small town with little resources for seeking other employment. These are health care workers for God's sake! How can they take care of people if they are literally afraid for their own lives and well being?????

    Interesting find:

    According to the CDC Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System there have been 417 deaths after taking a flu shot.

    Thats all I need to know. As far as I am concerned they can face charges of Assault and Battery with a Deadly Weapon.

    If your mother is alert and oriented x4, able to make informed decisions, and in a hospital, what would you do if the staff holds her down to give her a shot of ANYTHING she refused?

    The only problem for me is this:

    The question I just asked you is not a hypothetical for me. It happened to a lot of people at her job, and I am fighting it.

    I figure there will be a healthy amount of backlash from this, so I am just looking for strength and support.

    You most certainly have mine! I wish you well and look forward to hearing the results to this. And of course, I pray for a happy ending and those bastards are gone.
