- 0Dec 27, '05 by DanianneQuote from oneLoneNurseUnfortuanetly I live in a town where there is ONE hospital that is run by a health authority that does not hire grads from the school I went to, and the NH where I work is the only NH not under the Health Authority, So that means that I will have a very very hard time finding work other than MC Donalds so looking at this as apart of life will cause me and my children to starve. I was not offered severance of any kind so this boss in my opinion is the biggest A$$ I have ever met. Of course Canada is liberal that is the current government in power right now.
If you can please look on this experience as just part of life and move on. Though, I know from experience its hard not to hate your boss and/or the people responsible for the event.
Please ask about unemployment benefits. I happen to be Canadian and Canada seems pretty liberal.

"I suggest you show up tomorrow and work 1545-2145 or consider this your last shift at *********" Yes I did call in broken today. I have a really good reason though I was is a car accident at the beginning of the month and I am still experiencing the effects of some pretty bad whiplash. I am a CNA and there is NO LIGHT DUTY. so My dr told me that if my boss couldn't offer me light duty that I was not supposed to go back. I went back for part of one shift and although I didn't do my share of toileting and transferring I set the tables and handed out snacks so I could take that load off my coworkers but that was even too much for me. So i called in broken and now I am going to get fired. I depend on my income to pay for school. I just don't know what to do.
I don't know how your story will end with this. Your boss sounds heartless and unfeeling, but as I have ever witnessed throughout my life, "what goes around will eventually come around back to you", and at some point in his life I'm sure he will experience heartlessness toward himself. How sad.
This may be of little compensation to you now, but at 58 I've been around the block more than a few times and have changed careers a few times as well. Just when I've thought things couldn't get worse, God has always opened another door and it has turned out better than I could have ever imagined. If this doesn't work out and you find yourself in your worse situation, please don't give up. You will find yourself moving on with your life and probably will find something even better around the corner.
My prayers are with you.
