I was a Nurse's Aide in Port Huron Michigan, where I lost 2 children on the job due to the job, years later I popped a hip out not knowing I asked the DON what was wrong, she acted dumb, the pain decreased in a week or so. On my periods once a month the pain in the hip increased so bad that I had to force myself to forcus on my job. Months later I helped lift a patient, I felt something pop and my arms felt like electric currents were going down them. THe hospital told me nothing was wrong, I went back to work. After half the night went by, the pain again started while assiting someone to the toliet. I went and got help, then left to seek my own medical treatment, this doctor took the test necessary that you would if you had a pinched nerve, that's what I thought it was, after months of the test, she told an x-ray, I had 2 broken bones in my upper back, I needed a bone specilist. While I was at this doctor I was recieving many harassing phone calls from my employer, then they decided to put the injury to WC system, I told the assistant adminstrator I did not want WC, she insisted. While in therapy the therapist broke bones in the lower back, I could not feel my legs for a few minutes, he panniced, but I thought he would of at least told the doctor what he did, I was sent to another doctor whom took many test while he was playing head games with me. He finnally took a MRI and found my neck broken in 3 places, then he sent me back to work full-duty and said "You are too young to have anything wrong"
Well that night I went back to work, then quit. How an employer could play a game after I lost my children due to his (profit) company, I don't know. But he did.
THe settlement was $13,000.00, this was so I could get medical insurance, that never happened. The WC system drove me nuts along with the job. THen the CMH system got ahold of me, they increased drugs on me till the status of limitation was expired.
Funny thing a person, like myself, settles for peanuts, then never gets the proper medical attention due to fruad form a doctor, and negligence from a therapist. I could of took the place for millions, but I have morals, WHen WC insurance is paid out the increased debt goes somewhere--to the patients weather it be care cuts, food cuts, activity cuts, these elderly residents get and feel the cut. I loved my residents, and my job. BUT...............
Yet, it doesn't pay to be nice to an employer, because my life has not only been turned upside-down but altered, I have been rolled continuly, I was raped in a Mental hospital, and my career has been destoryed to the point that I am on disablity. I can not carry children the way most women have, I have been pregnant 4 times and have only 1 child, this is because the first one's cord was ripped while I lifted a resident with her son. I was about 5 months along and could tell that it was a boy. The next day I went to the doctor, told him what happen, I didn't write this up because I was young and thought I could have more children, I was pregnant about 8 months later, 3 months along, I was kicked in the stomach by a resident at the Nursing Home, when to the doctor, explained what happen, never wrote these instances up, was told too, but, didn't. Can prove this happened.
I was treated by the adminstration the WC system and the public as if I was the villain, trying to screw the employer, Yet, I told the assistant adminstrator that I didn't want WC. She insisted, then I get screwed, I have been altered, rolled, raped, made into a complete fool, and insulted by the WC system and the CMH system.
I fought through a depression when losing 2 children in 1989, the injury was in 1991, only to be put in a depression intentionally by the Workers compensation system, then held there prisoner by the CMH system altered and abused by all.
I was an American, till a system that insistes that the fault of an injury is the employee, I was harassed by the Adminstrator since the day he hired me, I was there 7 years and planning to become a Registered Nurse. This never happen.
SINCE WHEN DOES THE UNITED STATE FIND MORE THRILL IN MAKING THEIR OWN MENTAL PATIENTS!!!
Before a system like the WC system takes sides, they need to talk to the employee. I was intentionally screwed because I didn't kiss up to the boss. I would of perfered too have a family insisted of being made into a mental patient. MY CHILDREN WERE ALSO DRAGGED THROUGH THIS SYSTEM TOO MADE INTO A SPECTACLE FOR THE AMERICAN POPULATION. I WANT JUSTICE FOR MY CHILDREN THAT THIS SYSTEM DECIDED TO REGARD AS NOTHING. I cannot find a lawyer too look into this case, nor can I trust the police system too look into this corruption since they themselves had a hand into this. WHat happen to the USA that I once knew, that as a child stood up with my hand on my heart and said the pledge. This is no longer a country that I am proud of, and I plan to move to another one soon.
