    Back Injuries and Clinical

    Good question. But I honestly don't know. I sent a message to my doctor. Maybe even with a letter of no restrictions I can still peek out into the hallway and ask someone to help me lift. I highly doubt I would get in trouble for asking for help. I spoke to 5 other instructors and nurses at the school and they all believe I should be able to ask for help.

    My doctor gave me a letter saying I could full participate, but she wanted me doing 2-person lifts when my patients were heavy. I gave the letter to my instructor. My instructor told me that it wasn't enough. That she needs a letter that says "no restrictions" exactly. Im taking in to the dean, and I'm fighting the decision. I don't want to give up, and I don't want to have to start this class over. I just contacted my doctor again and am awaiting her response.

    Double-Helix, JBudd, everyone...my neurosurgeon has refused to give me clearance. Unless I can convince my general physician to clear me by tomorrow I am either given a Clinical Incident every day I miss clinical when I am banned from clinical that day (I'm automatically expelled for more than 2 Clinical Incidents) or dropped until completely cleared which won't be for months í ½í¸” I have considered arguing the program's decision but I feel like that would just make them angry and refuse to let me come back...Thank you for all the support though í ½í¸•

    @JBudd I passed the physical at the beginning of the program 9 months ago. They don't do a physical every class. The car accident was just a few weeks ago. The disabilities act can't force the school to keep me in the program because they believe I am a liability to patients and basically, useless because...Well, literally, I can't pull my own weight like the read of the students. I'm hoping my doctor will give me the all clear soon..

    My program straight up drops students with disabilities.

    Back Injuries and Clinical

    I had a physical when I started 9 months ago. My CI last class (we just switched) was understanding and found me independent patients on the Med/Surg floor. Now this semester, my new CI won't let other students do my job. She basically said I was useless if I didn't lift...I'm seeing my neurosurgeon on Thursday so I'm hoping she'll clear me. If not, I'm dropped from the program. I also bought a back brace (I know it's not always the best option).

    Back Injuries and Clinical

    I have back injuries related to an MVA a few weeks ago. As a result, I have been put on a restriction of lifting no more than 20 pounds by my doctor. Problem is, my rotation is on the ICU with total care patients who need a lot of weight support. I can not lift those patients. My clinical instructor is furious with me for not being able to participate. But I can do everything else! She's pushing me to lift but I'm afraid to *bleep* up my back even more. I just really need some advice...I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. I want to participate but I don't want to get worse!
