Pregnant Covid RN Lost Job

51786564_160225644552416_r.jpegHi,

Crazy how much a year can change things!

Last year, I was on GoFundMe but it was to raise money for a coworker of mine that was going through a rough patch and now I’m the one going through a rough time.

I am currently 16wks pregnant on a Covid Travel assignment. I have taken care of sick patients while I myself was struggling with extreme morning sick. Even throwing up multiple time outside of patients rooms before continuing with my daily tasks.

Last week, I filed two complaints against the hospital I was working at for unfair treatment. One such complaint involved being assigned a 1:1 Covid pt as primary RN and sitter. This meant that I’d be in this pt’s room for 12hrs without being able to drink, eat, or going to the bathroom unless someone relieved me to do so. I got sick in my N95 mask and was only  given a 5min break during a 9hr portion of that shift. Mind you, I am 16weeks pregnant. 

12hrs following this shift I went to the hospital with uncontrollable pain. I was admitted, given a couple of boluses of fluids and pain medications. Unable to do appropriate testing to determine the cause, since I am pregnant, I was discharged home. When I finally was well enoughto return to work I was notified that I was fired.

Raising money to pay for medical bills and lost wages until I can find another job.
