As I write this, I have to pause periodically to cough my brains out. In fact, I'm about the sickest I've ever been in my life. I was diagnosed with pneumonia a few days ago, and wouldn't it figure, this Dx landed on my scheduled weekend. I'm a patient tech, and I work in critical care and telemetry. Now, you would think in a perfect world, that the hospital would prefer to keep employees with pneumonia away from critical patients. But I don't find this to be the case. Actually I can recall countless times employees came to work with strep throat, pink eye, and cold/flu symptoms. And I congratulate them on their willingness to trudge through the halls of Tele, sweating with fevers, coughing all over those of us that are still healthy. The supervisors pretend to not notice that they look like death warmed over. Well, let me get to the point of my post. Initially I went to work at the onset of my illness. And yes I was one of those people coughing all over the healthy. I made it through two days of working while sick, but my condition worsened over my two days off. I went to my doctor, he took x-rays, and he diagnosed me with pneumonia. I called out Saturday and again today. It's their response that irked me, no get better, or sorry to hear you're sick. Just nothing... She isn't the most friendly thing on a good day, but as a fellow human being, you think there might be some hint of kindness. Oh well just wanted to take a moment to vent. Thanks in advance for listening.
