"we know this flu season is worse than normal, and when one 'fill-in' nurse at university hospitals said she was too sick to work two times over the course of a few days, it violated hospital policy." just after christmas-- theresa puckett was hardly a picture of good health.she called out
sick once at the end of 2017-- and when she came back a superior sent her home early because she was still fighting off the flu.theresa puckett / nurse:"i was putting in my cough drops, i was drinking my water, i was putting in my mucinex, i mean the whole nine yards just to patch myself up enough to go to work."that led to another sick day--opening her up to being fired because of u-h's policy that temporary nurses -- called "p-r-n's" like theresa--may be dismissed after two non-approved absenses over 60-days.theresa says it speaks to the nursing and hospital culture--keeping hospitals staffed no matter what the consequences."but when it happened to me, and i really truly was too sick to go to work. i was punished for that, i was punished for staying home with a doctor's note."u-h has a 'no-fault' attendence policy-- where the hospital tells us 'notes from a physician do not 'excuse' an occurrence of absence.'the policy says only approved leaves of absense-- workplace illnesses or injuries-- scheduled paid time off...like vacation time or doctors appointments--or jury duty or bereavement leave are considered excused.that means even theresa's note from her
own doctor saying she shouldn't interact with people who are already sick-- wasn't enough."there are times where i have gone to work so sick that the patient who is laying in the bed is in better condition than myself, that i am more sick than the patient lying in the bed.""theresa says the irony in her dismissal is a post on the university hospitals facebook page, telling visitors who might have the flu to stay home.
