I just got hired onto a med/surg floor. During our hospital's orientation we were asked to fill out tons of forms. On the employee health form were questions such as Are you pregnant? How many children do you have? Have you ever been hospitalized, when and why. Do you smoke - how many packs, how long? Have you ever filed a workman's comp claim. Have you or anyone in your family have a substance abuse problem. Have you or anyone in your family suffered depression...etc I have nothing to hide but I felt the questions were invasive. Does any one know if it is even legal to ask such questions?
Sounds awful. I know in hiring interviews you can't ask most of those. I'll wait for better advice from others.
