I was a multi-specialized, hard working team player for 29 years! Had a terrible accident and suddenly I’m being written up and targeted due to disability. I know I have a case for legal action but how can I go through all that mess again. Transferred to Fresno and My god what a bunch of lazy backstabbing co-workers I ended up with. That Dept must have record for sending Nurses running. I ended up retiring to avoid a termination on my record... yes pay and benefits are awesome but that may be why they push more senior staff out to balance the budget and managers get a bigger bonus...just terrible!
