Hey all,I have been a bedside nurse for several years in a specialty area exposed to everything: mycoplasma, cdiff, mrsa, flu, etc, etc. I recently started at a new hospital, but I have been getting sick every other month...and not just a little cold, but knock me out sick for 2 days or more each time. We weren't planning on it a year ago, but my husband and I would like to expand our family again as I'm not that young (so I don't have the luxury of time). I can definitely correlate the illness to work related exposure as I never got sick that often until starting here. My hand hygiene at work is on point, I never touch my face at work, I take my vitamins, etc, etc...I don't always get enough sleep, but that's work related as I wake up often the night before and need time after the chaos settles after a shift to unwind So...I guess my question is...has anyone experienced this before? Does it get better? Or should I look for other options to reduce my exposure and lengthy shifts? Not actually asking you to decide obviously...just wondering if anybody else has been in my shoes. Immunity is worse during pregnancy...so that's why I wonder if maybe my body is telling me to be done 13 hr shifts and bedside nursing. I'm otherwise a very healthy person who was pretty resilient to getting ill, maybe 1 little cold or 2 a year.
