I have been at my job as a cna for about a month. Yesterday i had a sore throat and today it was worse. So i called in. He said well according to policy you need a doctors note. The doctors office is not open on saturday. I have to go to a clinic cause i don't have insurance. I am not sure what he is going to say when i go to work tomorrow. This is a small facilty. It can only house 31 and right now it only has 8. I am the only cna they have. But now i will have to wait til tomorrow and see what he says. He said we would talk about it when i came back. But i can tell you i am not going to put up with him bad mouthing me. Anyway if you were in this situation what would you do. Would you have called out cause you are sick, so you would not get everyone there sick. Or would you have gone in and taken the chance to get everyone sick?

I personally would have gone to work and just wore a mask for the full shift (trust me, I've done it before). It's uncomfortable, but I hate putting excess stress on my co-workers by calling out. Unless I have a fever, I try not to call out sick.
