Many people are bored. Others are too busy, and they don’t have the luxury of being bored. They are overwhelmed. Neither are happy. Or probably both are happy in a way 🙄
Which side are you, my dear 1Zumba friend? Are you the busy one or the relaxed one? Lately, we received many complaints about the workers compensation insurance system, which covers employees in California.
It is sad to hear the stories of many of them, who were left without medication, or treatment after being injured during work, and the difficulties they faced for that faulty system. Here’s a couple of their stories:
Workers Comp is a joke.
I too had a nurse coordinator with my first injury through WC in 2014. Things were going slower before her because workers comp. was denying I needed surgery and sending me to all kinds of different docs, torture techniques, etc..
After having that helping person, all the scheduled appointments. had to work around HER schedule. Kinda pissed me off at first. But then I realized she was on MY side.
You can make the nurse your friend or foe. She ended up getting all the BS to stop and finally pushed for my surgery and I got it within a month .
She even followed and was at my recovery visits. So it can be good or bad..but you can try to get the nurse on YOUR side. Good luck.
AS for being treated different at PM’s and PT’s…I notice it also. Guess they assume you are trying to stay on wc and exaggerate or whatever. So guess what……DO IT! I was told to exaggerate by someone. I couldn’t. I went in for a 3 day physical evaluation. It was BAD.
I went in there on vikidin 750’s and told them, and I was still in bad bad but pushed on. They had me climb a ladder…it hurt so bad and took about 3 min. of major pain. But I did it. A normal person could have did it in about 10 seconds. But guess what?…
It was marked that I could do it, as well as things as stand/sit on and off 2 hours resting etc…they do not include you had to be jacked up on your meds (that your going to get cut off), and that you were still in major pain.
SO good luck when they make you do one. Just remember the advice….don’t do things just because you can do it 1x because you are trying your best. It works against you. If it cause you pain…SIT DOWN!
It has been long time for that workers comp not working for workers. It has been working for employers only. It’s a fact.
Isn’t it time for a reform?
I guess it should. We received similar issues before, and we published it, and we will continue talk about it until our voice is heard, and the reform is done.
Thank you for sharing your stories with us, and we hope that all your pain to be gone forever, and to be very healthy again.
