Hello All could I have Another Nurses prespective!
Sunday I fell in the parking lot at work and dislocated my right shoulder.
. I had it reset in the ER. Today i went to my ortho and he said That i couldn't use it for a month. OMG! Well the DON at my LTC facility wants me to work on the interm. side of the building I usually work Subacute ,because the ortho put me on light duty and wrote on it note no use of right arm. (I am left handed). He said what can they get a one armed nurse to do.
Well i am kinda flabergasted and don't know what to do. I guess I need to tell you guys i was on the clock so its workers comp. If you can believe it I was going to my car to get another stehascope for the agency nurse she forgot hers.
Thanks for replying to my need for advice in advance.:imbar
