Nurse With The Flu Gets Fired For Callin

Nurse With The Flu Gets Fired For Calling Out Sick by Dory Jackson (2/12/18):”Theresa Puckett, who was formerly employed at University Hospitals in Cleveland, said she was punished for coming down with the flu. Puckett’s absence from work, however, was considered to be in violation with the hospital’s attendance policy for fill-in nurses.
University Hospitals has a no-fault attendance policy that requires certain absences to be pre-approved, which is a policy the facility claimed is similar to those enforced by other health organizations regionally and nationally. Excused absences include jury duty and doctor’s appointments, but it does not cover sick days.”

About nursefriendly

Decided early on that there was a need for reliable healthcare information on the Internet. People more and more look online for reliable sources for Drugs, Medications, Diseases, Conditions, etc. Nurses and those interested in Nursing need quick access to associations, schools and helpful resources. The resulting site was http://www.nursefriendly.com Thought about all the questions I've been answering for patients, family members, neighbors and coworkers. Came up the with goal of providing easy access to resources on the web through our Nursefriendly Network of sites. Patients or family members, nurses or even doctors can come to my site and within a few clicks find nurse selected resources with the information they need. A website I've found, is much like a newspaper. As long as people are reading (or visiting), advertisers will pay to have their message seen. That's the income model I've chosen. To date, it's been a consistently profitable while providing a needed service to the public.
