    Am I a coward for going on FMLA due to COVID?

    Very good point about military and nurses!

    Am I a coward for going on FMLA due to COVID?

    Hello, I understand your feelings. I had chemotherapy 2 years ago. I don't believe my immune system will sustain constant onslaught of the viral exposure working without proper PPEs. I am turning my 2 week notice in. I can afford to be out of work for a few months but I will need a job. I would like to take FMLA instead of resignation to figure things out (not sure if I am qualified and how to get it). I hope there will be the test for antibody available soon or they finally start mass producing PPEs. Stay safe!

    Does anybody know what qualifies you for FMLA ? I had a chemotherapy 2 years ago but stable currently. Will call my oncologist tomorrow to find out about it but he is not a compassionate kind and probably will deny any assistance for me to go on FMLA.

    Considering Quitting my Job

    Thank you for your response. I don't think it is going to work because we are in a crisis situation and CDC released this bandanas/scarves guidelines...

    Considering Quitting my Job

    Thank you, guys. I still don't know what to do. Older mom here with young kids and immunocompromised health. In a few months it will be either apocalyptic situation here or the government gets things under certain control, producing PPE for healthcare workers, increased testing, etc.

    Considering Quitting my Job

    I just read new updates on our PPE policy - no N95 masks for taking care of covid patients except for certain procedures. Last time I worked we were still allowed to wear N95 (one per shift). I am turning my 2 week notice in... Do you think there will be repercussions for your license of quitting the job in this time even with 2 weeks notice?

    Coronavirus and Pay

    Thank you. I tried to discuss with coworkers about our pay if we get sick, lack of PPE, etc. It was not received well, I was told it is a part of the job and I knew what I was getting into when choosing nursing. I see a lot of cavalier attitudes among nurses right now. The reality is healthcare is a business like any other. There will be some unlucky ones who get very sick.

    Covid-19 is Quite Unpleasant: A Personal Testimony

    I am so glad you guys have recovered! We need to hear it. The fear of unknown is just building up. I think it is the best for people in healthcare - to get it and get over it. So far the consensus is that there is immunity after the illness.

    Coronavirus and Pay

    Sorry, I am feeling very stressed out right now. My husband works at the ED. I am a cancer survivor. We do have mortgage, etc. I do believe the employers should offer not only reassurance but pay increase depending on work load and workman's compensation for people who get sick.

    Coronavirus and Pay

    Schools are closed. I am loosing a babysitter. She feels it is too risky to watch our kids and come to our house. Grandparents are not watching our kids any longer for their own safety. I reached the point where I don't care about the money and the job. My biggest fear is if we both get sick, who is going to take care of the kids?

    Coronavirus and Pay

    Hello Everybody, I expect the working conditions to deteriorate soon. I do not feel we are compensated enough for what this epidemic will bring. My childcare cost will go up providing anybody wants to watch my kids knowing I take care of very sick people. Please share your thoughts on this topic. Thank you.
