workers comp situation?
Here's the situation:
Someone I know - lets just say my wife for now - became hired at a hospital. The hospital requires a flu shot prior to working there.
The nurse (which was actually one of the nuns), came in to give the shot. They gave the shot too high in her shoulder, going through her bursa, making a wonderful hole in it, causing issues with range of motion, strength, etc... in her shoulder. She got the shot in November of 2011. Still hurts to this day, even worse, since she has to use her arm for her job.
She needs to see a Dr for this. Who pays? What do we need to do? She's attempting to contact her HR rep currently, but not getting feedback. Spoke with the case manager, and she was rude, telling her that it was 'her choice' to get the flu shot!?!? I think the case manager was having a bad day.
BTW - she went back to the same office to one of the physicians to confirm the bursa injury.
