Ok, I have two arms but back in February the tendon of my shoulder's supraspinatus muscle was torn completely off my humerus. So they stitched the torn tendon back on and now I'm going on 8 weeks post-op. I'm an Occ Health RN and am at the point of getting back to being able to do all the essential functions of my job except one.I can't and shouldn't do two handed CPR for probably 6 months.Before this happened my last contract position ended in January, so I'm without a job to return to. I've been looking for part-time positions and find them. But then...."Oh, you have restrictions on your non-dominant arm, thanks but no thanks, you can't do CPR". I have been an Occ Health Nurse for 7 years. I've worked in many places, some with 200 employees, some with 700. I've never once been called upon to perform CPR though I've always been ready.There have always been many others around and often there is a first-response team which include first responders and sometimes EMT's. I guess I'm a bit miffed at being rejected (my qualifications for everything required by a Occ Heath RN are excellent) because the one thing that I can't do is two handed CPR. I cannot think of another thing that I could not do that I normally do as a function of my job.In a way, in this litigious world I can understand a contract agency or company being hesitant. I can hear someone saying: "The person had a heart attack and was not revived, now if the nurse had done it she might have lived," is what I imagine. Well, it is an argument, though not a good one, as we all know that very few will revive even with excellent CPR. And I cannot imagine a time when another employee would not have jumped in and of course I can attach pads and operate the AED.I feel it's discriminatory. Based on my experience of 7 years, even one-armed, I can do 100% of what has been required of my job duties 100% of the past seven years. Further, there are always others around, often trained at various levels, who could do the CPR if necessary and I am quite happy at coaching such a person/pair as I teach CPR.So, I'm curious--what do you think. Is my being rejected for jobs for the singular reason that I cannot perform two handed CPR a valid reason or might this be abusive in the eyes of ADA.Note: Yes, of course I would do one-handed CPR, my good arm is very strong, and transport EMT's (some of them) do one-handed CPR holding onto the truck with the other arm--but please let's ignore that discussion for this question.
