I started feeling sick since Monday night when I was working in my home unit, congestive cough with sputum, running nose, headache, so I told my charge nurse I couldn't work since Tuesday (my regular shift), I stayed at home Wednesday thursday(my days off), this morning, I found I almost lost voice with congestive cough, so I called my manager I need 2 more days to stay at home, I feel she is not happy with that, she said:"you still need 2 more days?" ???
So I totally will take 5 shifts off, 2 shifts are my regular shifts which means hospital will pay me, 3 shifts without pay, I understand in such tough economy situation, my boss is not happy with my sick leave, but I don't want to cough and cough in front my patients, patients will complain too.
If you were me, you will call sick or no?
