    I think if you believe you are putting others at risk then you should probably leave. I'm sure given the circumstances your employer would understand and appreciate your honesty. Also think how your employer would be if something was to happen?

    If you have a medical certificate then I don't think it will. They may not like it, but it's not like you are fobbing work off to have a wild time. Maybe meet with your boss and tell them what's going on, maybe they will be more understanding. If its a risk for you, your colleagues and patients then you shouldn't be there.

    I know the danger, and it wouldn't be forever, just until this gets cleared up. I'm racking my brain for another solution, and the only thing I can think of is to ask for cleaning only shifts.
    I don't want to p*ss them off, I just got and I love this job

    It would be breaching your duty of care to those residents to continue working if you are not 100% safely able to. Take more time off until you're well honey, how would you feel if you hurt someone? Xxx

    I'm hoping that since my boss is a nurse, she'll understand the dangers (as well an fatigue and feeling like crap) of working with cognitive impairment.
    I hope this thing isn't long term.

    Hi

    I discharged myself from hospital and went back to work. Not a good move! Give your body time to rest by taking some time off and see what info the scan gives you.

    I used to manage a nursing home. As long as you keep them updated as soon as you know whats happening its usually not in issue.

    Thanks for that
    All my shifts next week are training because I was starting evening shifts, so they won't have to replace any. I'm hoping that will ease the situation.
