    kudos to your nursing manager, i strongly agree with her decision. i feel why should, you be kept working while you're feeling badly, not to mention spreading whatever you have to other staff & patients. i rather have one less nurse, than have several nurses out for the same reason. unquestionably, one has to consider the needs of the department first, however, my staff always comes first. wishing you a prompt recovery and if i were you i would send your boss a thank you note for being so considerate. hugs from across the miles...ciao~

    at least you have a nursing job . . .
    [font=times]are you serious?

    anyway.... it bugs me that we get penalized for calling off sick or going home early at times like this. yes, we have some people on family medical leave who call off every time they break a nail, but when a puking bonanza is sweeping through the place, you know it's real.

    it would also be nice if, when residents start puking and the cnas ask the supervisor to close units and close the dining room, if the supervisor would listen instead of assuming that we're just being lazy. how is that lazy? i don't even know!
