  2. Yes, Employer Can Require Covid Vaccine

    My political ( leftist, rightist or in betweenist) beliefs have NOTHING to do with my health care decisions. I look at the information and make my decision. It really does not matter; how can you FORCE someone to have something injected into his/her...
  3. HCA

    My HH company has been bought by HCA. I am wondering what kind of company HCA is-- how do they treat employees? How are the benefits-- health insurance, PTO? Anything else you can think of? Trying to get a comparison before it's official to see if ...

  6. Non Clinical Jobs

    Have been HH for 11 years. It's just all getting to be too much after 40 years of being a LVN. LIfting the bag, working on a tablet all day, the bending, wrapping legs. I was off for a couple of weeks due to pain, worked one day and my neck was SC...

  11. Those Darn Diabetics

    I *am* diabetic. I would be LABELED a "non compliant". Being told what to do, and when to do it.."Dr's Orders" as opposed to being treated as a person with education, respect and understanding has made a huge difference in MY attitude. What I hear...
