The guilt of calling off is a real thing. As Nurses we have developed this (less than) silent rule of dragging our sorry sick selves to work for the fear of leaving our coworker short-handed.
We rather report to work and infect everyone around us, then stay home?
Crazy isn’t it?
Part of the problem is Nurses who have abused absenteeism. We feel bad for calling off, but also don’t have the system on our side for actually calling off when we’re sick. We don’t want to be penalized or lose money (unavailable benefit time).
While I can empathize with paying your bills and being a team player… I would request that if you are sick, please stay home.
I like a Funk-Free workplace. Do you agree?
