This one isn't about me this one is about my girlfriend.
When we first started dating she was working in a really crappy nursing home but she kind of loved it. Anyway on this particular evening I was sleeping the sleep of the just after having worked 6 doubles in a row, when my cell phone goes off.
It's at the other end of the room so I cracked an eyelid at it had had a short argument with myself before hauling myself up and lumbering to retrieve it.
Once in my hand it stops ringing. Halfway to my bed my roommate is POUNDING on my door. I fling open the door to him shouting, "She's been hurt she's been hurt! Oh lord Holly's hurt!"
He's having a full panic attack! I grabbed his cell phone got the pertinent details and ran out the door. I get to her work and find out that an elderly patient snuck up on her while she was unclogging his toilet and knocked her out with a picture frame.
I see cop cars and ambulances so I asked why she called me to pick her up here rather than the hospital. Holly walks up holding a blood soaked rag to her head and tells asks if we can just go.
On the way to the hospital she tells me that her work told her she needed to stay or they would fire her for leaving her shift!
Fortunately a good guy cop jumped in and told the Administrator that she would be in heap big trouble if she tried that. We get to the hospital at the same time as a relative of the patient who attacked Holly.
She is mocking Holly to the admit lady and saying Holly ruined everything. (I'm not sure but I think that if patients are combative and actually hurt people they have to go to different facilities.)
Holly was diagnosed with a concussion and was given a few days off to recover. I planned a nice beach trip on the day she had to go back.
I picked her up after her shift and we were almost there when her cell rings and they fired her!
They said a patient was on the floor and she had just left him there! (Not possible if you know Holly, if she sees an elderly woman that she doesn't know struggling getting into a bathroom stall she immediately identifies herself as a CNA and helps.)
We figure they needed her to work one more shift so it wasn't directly linked to her "accident."
