I got a horrible case of the flu. When I called in sick for the fourth day in a row my boss told me I would need a doctor's note when I returned. I suggested he take a look at my attendance record. He called back later and told me to get better and not bother with a doctor.
That was appropriate of your boss after looking at your record. Mine probably did not even bother and I got nothing in the way of an admission of being wrong from her at all.
Her and the new boss told me just to call in every day that I don't come in. I told them I knew the policy and follow policy.
For 14 months I have been going to work to sink or swim, no help if I need it and no breaks while the other tech takes her's and even extra smoke breaks. She leaves early. Here is the work load imbalance I am talking about...
Mine is the larger list
Here are some numbers of items to be cleaned in both areas simply listed.
Cancer Center and Business office
Trash Cans-78 (100 trash cans if counting exam rooms.)
Pressure Cuffs-21 (maybe more)
Monitors and Cords-12
Sinks other then in Rest Rooms-5
Linen Hampers-13 total (11 are part of the exam rooms)
Paper Towel Dispensers-4
11 Exam rooms with some of the main items
3. Computer and desk
4. Three Chairs each
5. Two Trash Cans (not counted in my total trash can count above)
6. Linen hamper
7.Mis. Physician equipment
P.T. Area sampling
Linen Hampers-2 total
Paper Towel dispensers-4
Patient rooms/Exam rooms-4 (no sinks)
Mis. offices and P.T. Rooms and gear.
Some totals may be a give or take four to five. Some rooms were locked during my inventory of the PT area. Safe to say generally I have more stuff to clean, it’s right here on paper and is seen at the location in person.
