Hi, my wife started a new job 3 weeks ago.
When she arrived at work today she fell on a wet bathroom floor.
The ambulance had to come and get her.
After spending the day at the hospital, thankfully nothing was broken.
The Dr. said she has a sprained neck and a shoulder contusion.
They said she can go back to work tomorrow on light duty and remain on light duty for the rest of the week.
She is in a great deal of pain. So much so she is on Vicoden (and it is not helping.)
My question is, what should she do now?
How long does she go in pain before needing therapy if it is needed?
Do we call our own Dr. or just listen to what the accident room Dr. suggested?
Will she get paid for the lost pay of 1 day?
What should she do if she is at work tomorrow and can't take the pain? leave?
We have no idea what to do so please advise us.
