What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? GA
I was recently fired from my nursing home job; they said it was due to not reporting an incident and assisting a resident by me when that resident needed two people to assist her. My first question is, do I have a leg to stand on so to say, I was never give a verbal or written notice of the incident, I was suspended for 4 day then fired on the fourth day. According to how I've read and interpreted the rules and regulations of the nursing home, one must first receive a verbal warning, then if that person continues with the above mentioned, then that person receives a written notice of the so called incident, then if it's still continues then that person can and should be fired. Well like I said I was never given a verbal or written notice. Where do I stand? Can I get them to give me my job back?
My second question is. Like I had just mentioned I worked in a Nursing Home, and I contracted MRSA from there. My doctor that I've been seeing stated that most likely that is where I received this infection. The question is.....What are my rights?, can I make them responsible for any pain and suffering, medical bills, attorney bills, and the reason I cannot get a job at this time, MRSA is very contagious, and if it gets into my blood stream it can be fatal....Where do I stand, if the nursing home didn't inform the staff that someone or more have MRSA.?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
