thanks you guys
i am definately going to find out how that got into this insurance docs folder (it was from the insurance company, no doubt) and i am also sure that they obtained this from my primary care.
talk about breech of confidentiality.
what makes me the maddest is that i am getting the same rap as a crackhead when i dont even do drugs.
this was not something that is obscure in the chart...its RIGHT IN THE FRONT...THE FIRST PAGE!
it is an attempt by the insurance company to discredit me.
they really need to watch what they do/say because they are not dealing with the stupid general public. ive caught one of the insurance docs trying to ******** me...he suddenly remembered i was a nurse and changed what he was going to say.
bottom line is this...i DID get hurt at work. the pain continues. the insurance company is trying to say that i was hurt at work but the pain i have now is due to arthritis in my neck, in other words not caused by the injury. this is ********. i have had terrible throbbing in my neck since this happened. if i let the throbbing continue i get a horrific migrane. they are saying i have had a history of migranes...partially true. i have never had to have treatment for migranes as i only got them maybe twice a year and they were NEVER preceeded with throbbing in my neck. i have been back to work for a few weeks now, only a few hours a day on sedentary duty. I WANT TO GO BACK TO WORK DOING PATIENT CARE BUT I DONT WANT TO JEPORDIZE MY HEALTH. as a nurse i realize the long term affects of arthritis. i know i have to keep up my exercises. and i also know that another injury could have some drastic consequences.
these insurance docs are pushing me to get back. they dont need to... i think i need an unbiased opinion of someone i can trust. you know they have a nurse that assesses injured workers. she told me that my headaches might be caused by HORMONES because i am 44. i never realized hormones made your neck throb. i truly felt sold out by this nurse. like being turned on by one of your own kind. she has promised to "help" me. yeah i believe that.
hoolihan, i am going to a pain clinic for this neck pain whether they pay for it or not. when i was on the duragesic...100 mcgs no less....i knew that was too high of a dose for my stomache pain but at the time i had tried nerve blocks and everything else. i would have sold my soul to stop that pain. and i can honestly tell you, if i had wanted to, i could still be on duragesic now. that doc had no problems filling my scripts. I WAS THE ONE WHO HAD A PROBLEM WITH IT. I AM THE ONE WHO MADE IT STOP.
in my eyes this is a blatent attempt by the insurance company to discredit my person.
otherwise it sure as hell would NOT have been on the front of that chart. that has NOTHING to do with a work injury.
and when i think of them trying to mess with you about TB FOR GODS SAKE...I GET JUST AS DAMN MAD!!!
it is such **** that we get these patients with diseases that we dont even know we are going to be exposed to until after the exposure, but there was that big deal about testing health care workers.
test ALL PATIENTS for everything, and DONT EVEN TELL THEM. at least we will have a better idea of whats going on. some of these *******s with AIDS..even after an employee has been exposed, refuse the damn testing. and the stupid insurance docs try to find a way to get you out of the system.
oh yeah...and check this out...i thought my appointment was at 10:30 this morning...i got there at 10:30. it was actually at 10. i would have not had a problem going back if he couldnt take me. it was my mistake.
right in the middle of the exam this idiot asks me if i had a "good reason" for being 45 minutes late. i sat out in the damn waiting room for over an hour.grrrrrrrrr
oh geez...im getting mad all over again.
thanks for your support. tomorrow morning i find an attorney.
