A chiropractic service arrangement for musculoskeletal complaints in industry: a pilot study. (1/934)

Chiropractic services are commonly used by workers with musculoskeletal problems, especially low back and neck complaints. Research into the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of this approach is, however, difficult to design without prior pilot studies. This study followed 32 workers with these complaints attending one such service and used five measures of outcome over a 6-month period. These measured pain (VAS), disability (FLP), quality of life (SF-36), perceived benefit and satisfaction with care. Additionally, sickness costs to the companies were recorded over two years encompassing the study period. Treatment utilization was also monitored. Over half the population were chronic sufferers. The effect sizes were large for pain and for seven out of eight dimensions of the SF-36 questionnaire at 6-month follow-up, although not for disability (FLP). High levels of satisfaction and perceived improvement were reported and sickness costs to the companies fell. However, the sample size in this pilot study was small and did not include controls. We would, therefore, recommend a full cost-effectiveness study incorporating a randomized trial in this area.  (+info)

The impact of welfare reform on parents' ability to care for their children's health. (2/934)

OBJECTIVES: Most of the national policy debate regarding welfare assumed that if middle-income mothers could balance work while caring for their children's health and development, mothers leaving welfare for work should be able to do so as well. Yet, previous research has not examined the conditions faced by mothers leaving welfare for work. METHODS: Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, this study examined the availability of benefits that working parents commonly use to meet the health and developmental needs of their children; paid sick leave, vacation leave, and flexible hours. RESULTS: In comparison with mothers who had never received welfare, mothers who had been on Aid to Families with Dependent Children were more likely to be caring for at least 1 child with a chronic condition (37% vs 21%, respectively). Yet, they were more likely to lack sick leave for the entire time they worked (36% vs 20%) and less likely to receive other paid leave or flexibility. CONCLUSIONS: If current welfare recipients face similar conditions when they return to work, many will face working conditions that make it difficult or impossible to succeed in the labor force at the same time as meeting their children's health and developmental needs.  (+info)

Prognosis of accidental low back pain at work. (3/934)

Accidental low back pain at the workplace was classified into two groups; 177 cases of the organic type and 176 cases of the non-specific type. Concerning the recuperation period, the length of leave, and the amount of compensation for recuperation, medical cost and leave of absence, a comparison was made between two groups. Regarding age, sex, and the type of work, no difference was found between the organic and the non-specific groups. However, the non-specific group showed lower values than the organic one for the duration of recuperation and leave and the amount of compensation for medical cost and leave of absence. Multiple regression analysis showed that the difference in the type of low back pain had more influence on the duration and cost than that in sex and age. The prognosis of non-specific low back pain is better than that of organic one in terms of cost and duration.  (+info)

Back pain prevalence in US industry and estimates of lost workdays. (4/934)

OBJECTIVES: Back pain is the most common reason for filing workers' compensation claims and often causes lost workdays. Data from the 1988 National Health Interview Survey were analyzed to identify high-risk industries and to estimate the prevalence of work-related back pain and number of workdays lost. METHODS: Analyses included 30074 respondents who worked during the 12 months before the interview. A case patient was defined as a respondent who had back pain every day for a week or more during that period. RESULTS: The prevalence of lost-workday back pain was 4.6%, and individuals with work-related cases lost 101.8 million workdays owing to back pain. Male and female case patients lost about the same number of workdays. Industries in high-risk categories were also identified for future research and intervention, including those seldom studied. CONCLUSIONS: This study provides statistically reliable national estimates of the prevalence of back pain among workers and the enormous effect of this condition on American industry in terms of lost workdays.  (+info)

Are risk factors for atherothrombotic disease associated with back pain sickness absence? The Whitehall II Study. (5/934)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To explore the previously stated hypothesis that risk factors for atherothrombotic disease are associated with back pain. DESIGN: Prospective (mean of four years of follow up) and retrospective analyses using two main outcome measures: (a) short (< or = 7 days) and long (> 7 days) spells of sickness absence because of back pain reported separately in men and women; (b) consistency of effect across the resulting four duration of spell and sex cells. SETTING: 14 civil service departments in London. PARTICIPANTS: 3506 male and 1380 female white office-based civil servants, aged 35-55 years at baseline. MAIN RESULTS: In age adjusted models, low apo AI was associated with back pain across all four duration-sex cells and smoking was associated across three cells. Six factors were associated with back pain in two cells: low exercise and high BMI, waist-hip ratio, triglycerides, insulin and Lp(a). On full adjustment (for age, BMI, employment grade and back pain at baseline), each of these factors retained a statistically significant effect in at least one duration-sex cell. Triglycerides were associated with short and long spells of sickness absence because of back pain in men in fully adjusted models with rate ratios (95% confidence intervals) of 1.53 (1.1, 2.1) and 1.75 (1.0, 3.2) respectively. There was little or no evidence of association in age adjusted models with: fibrinogen, glucose tolerance, total cholesterol, apoB, hypertension, factor VII, von Willebrand factor, electrocardiographic evidence of coronary heart disease and reported angina. CONCLUSIONS: In this population of office workers, only modest support was found for an atherothrombotic component to back pain sickness absence. However, the young age of participants at baseline and the lack of distinction between different types of back pain are likely to bias the findings toward null. Further research is required to ascertain whether a population sub-group of atherothrombotic back pain can be identified.  (+info)

Longitudinal, population-based study of self reported alcohol habits, high levels of sickness absence, and disability pensions. (6/934)

STUDY OBJECTIVE: To analyse the relation between self reported hazardous drinking on the one hand and high sickness absence and/or disability pensions in both sexes on the other hand. DESIGN: The study is based on data from a health survey, Stockholm Health of the Population Study, conducted in 1984. The mailed questionnaire covered alcohol consumption. Three different measures of alcohol habits were used: usual alcohol consumption, consumption during the previous week, and answers to the four CAGE questions on problem drinking. Information from the health survey and data from a subsequent health examination were related to information from the National Swedish Social Insurance Board for the year 1984 and the years 1986 to 1991 concerning sick leave and disability pensioning. SETTING: Four primary health care districts in Stockholm County. PARTICIPANTS: The study group included persons who were aged 20 to 52 years in 1984, who answered the questionnaire (by mail or by telephone), and who participated in the health examination. The study group comprised 985 women and 870 men fulfilling the criteria for inclusion out of 6217 subjects aged 18 years and over randomly drawn. MAIN RESULTS: In both sexes, a consistent pattern of increased sickness absence was seen for high consumers and for those with indications of problem drinking. In most comparisons, a clearly increased relative risk, although not always statistically significant, for an average of at least 60 sick days per year or for a disability pension during follow up was found. In multivariate analysis, controlling for age, socioeconomic group, smoking habits, and self reported health, a small reduction in the relative risks was found, suggesting that these factors could explain only a small part of the relative risks. The risks for abstainers were higher than for low and moderate consumers. CONCLUSIONS: The effects of alcohol on subsequent high levels of sickness absence five to seven years after baseline as well as on the occurrence of disability pensions suggested that there is an effect on working incapacity independent of baseline health status, smoking, and socioeconomic group.  (+info)

Relation between indicators for quality of occupational rehabilitation of employees with low back pain. (7/934)

OBJECTIVES: To assess if the implementation of guidelines for occupational rehabilitation of patients with low back pain by means of process variables--a set of objective criteria for technical performance and continuity of care--led to a better outcome in clinical and return to work variables. METHODS: The study group consisted of 59 patients with at least 10 days of sick leave because of low back pain. Univariate analyses as well as multiple logistic regression and Cox's regression analyses were performed to assess the relation between quality of care and outcome. RESULTS: Process indicators for technical competence, continuity of care, and total performance were all significantly related to satisfaction of employees. Continuity of care and total performance were significantly related to working status at 3 months, and time to return to work. None of the process indicators was related to pain or disability after 3 months follow up. Satisfaction was not related to any of the other outcome variables. This indicates that if guidelines for occupational rehabilitation are met, outcome is better. CONCLUSION: Quality of the process of care was related to outcome. Interventions of occupational physicians need improvement in the areas of continuity of care and communication with treating physicians. The effectiveness of an improved intervention should be studied in a subsequent randomised clinical trial.  (+info)

Follow up investigation of workers in synthetic fibre plants with humidifier disease and work related asthma. (8/934)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical and sociomedical outcome in patients with various clinical manifestations of humidifier disease and work related asthma after removal from further exposure. METHODS: Follow up investigation (range 1-13 years) of respiratory symptoms, spirometry, airway responsiveness, sickness absence, and working situation in patients with (I) humidifier fever (n = 12), (II) obstructive type of humidifier lung (n = 8), (III) restrictive type of humidifier lung (n = 4), and (IV) work related asthma (n = 22). All patients were working at departments in synthetic fibre plants with microbiological exposure from contaminated humidification systems or exposure to small particles (< 1 micron) of oil mist. RESULTS: At follow up patients with work related asthma were less often symptom free (37%, 7/19) than patients with humidifier disease (I, II, III) (67%, 16/24). Mean forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) of patients with obstructive impairment had been increased significantly at follow up but still remained below the predicted value. Mean forced vital capacity (FVC) of patients with initially restrictive impairment had returned to normal values at follow up. Airway hyperresponsiveness at diagnosis persisted in patients with obstructive impairment (II + IV 14/17, but disappeared in patients with humidifier fever (3/3) and restrictive type of humidifier lung (2/2). In patients with obstructive impairment (II + IV), FVC and FEV1 at diagnosis were negatively associated with the duration between onset of symptoms and diagnosis and the number of years of exposure. Those with positive pre-employment history of respiratory disease had a lower FEV1 at diagnosis. Sickness absence due to respiratory symptoms decreased in all groups of patients after removal from further exposure, but this was most impressive in patients with the humidifier lung (II, III) and patients with work related asthma (IV). At follow up 83% of the patients were still at work at the same production site, whereas 11% received a disability pension because of respiratory disease. CONCLUSION: In patients with work related respiratory disease caused by exposure from contaminated humidification systems or oil mist, removal from further exposure resulted in clinical improvement, although, especially in those with obstructive impairment, signs persisted. Because of the possibility of transferring patients to exposure-free departments most patients could be kept at work.  (+info)

Younger people with heart failure often experience poor self-rated health. Furthermore, poor self-rated health is associated with long-term sick leave and disability pension. Socio-demographic factors affect the ability to return to work. However, little is known about people on sick leave due to heart failure. The aim of this study was to investigate associations between self-rated health, mood, socio-demographic factors, sick leave compensation, encounters with healthcare professionals and social insurance officers and self-estimated ability to return to work, for people on sick leave due to heart failure. This population-based investigation had a cross-sectional design. Data were collected in Sweden in 2012 from two official registries and from a postal questionnaire. In total, 590 subjects, aged 23-67, responded (response rate 45.8%). Descriptive statistics, correlation analyses (Spearman bivariate analysis) and logistic regression analyses were used to investigate associations. Poor ...
In previous studies the authors have found sick leave to be a predictor of future sick leave, unemployment and disability pension. Although sick leave reflects underlying health problems, some studies have suggested that sick leave may have consequences beyond the consequences of the underlying illness. However, few studies have aimed at studying consequences of sick leave while adjusting for ill health. This study aims to explore whether short-term sick leave increases the risk of future long-term sick leave, disability pension, and unemployment. Furthermore, we aim to control for the potentially confounding effects of physical and mental health status. Data were gathered from the Stockholm Public Health Cohort (SPHC), restricted to 11,156 employed individuals (48.6% men) aged 18-59, without long-term sick leave, disability pension or in-patient care the year before inclusion (2002). These were followed-up with regard to unemployment, long-term sick leave, and disability pension in 2006 and 2007. Odds
Being and working in a garden combined with active job coaching can effectively help women on long-term sick leave return to work. A study conducted at University of Gothenburg explored the reasons for the trend.
Results There was no significant difference between treatments in days on sick leave 1 year after treatment start (mean difference in sick-leave days range=9-27). CBT led to larger reduction of symptoms post-treatment (CSR; Cohens d=0.4 (95% CI 0.1 to 0.8)) than RTW-I, whereas COMBO did not differ from CBT or RTW-I. At follow-up, after 1 year, there was no difference between groups. All treatments were associated with large pre-treatment to post-treatment improvements, and results were maintained at 1-year follow-up. ...
The aim of the study is to examine the risk of sickness absence in public sector employees with allergic rhinitis or asthma or both conditions combined. This is a prospective cohort study of 48,296 Finnish public sector employees. Data from self-reported rhinitis and asthma were obtained from survey responses given during either the 2000-2002 or 2004 periods. Follow-up data on sickness absences for the public sector employees surveyed were acquired from records kept by the employers. During the follow-up, mean sick leave days per year for respondents were 17.6 days for rhinitis alone, 23.8 days for asthma alone and 24.2 days for both conditions combined. Respondents with neither condition were absent for a mean of 14.5 days annually. The impact of asthma and rhinitis combined on the risk of sick leave days was marginal compared to asthma alone (RR 1.1; 95% CI 1.0-1.3). In the subgroup analysis (those with current asthma or allergy medication), the risk ratio for medically certified sickness ...
The Norwegian specialist health service has undergone many processes of reorganization during the last three decades. Changes are mainly initiated to increase the efficiency and quality of health care serving an ageing population under the condition of a diminishing labour supply. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of reorganization on long-term sickness absence among different levels of hospital staff. The study draws on panel data on employees of Norwegian public hospitals in 2005 and 2007 (N = 106,715). National register data on individual employees days of medically certified long-term (|16 days) sickness absence were linked with survey measures of actual reorganization executed at each hospital in each year. The surveys, answered by hospital administration staff, measured five types of reorganization: merging units, splitting up units, creating new units, shutting down units and reallocation of employees. The variation in sickness absence days was analysed using random and fixed
Doctors at a medical clinic in Pemberton are handing out letters instead of sick notes, asking employers to stop requiring sick notes and wasting peoples time.. Local resident Becca Moriarty, 26, posted a photo of the letter to her Facebook page this week, after going in to get a sick note for her boss.. The letter says a policy requiring a sick note for missed time puts an added burden on the healthcare system, taking up resources that could be used on people are who actually ill.. People seeking sick notes - who otherwise wouldnt see a doctor - end up in physicians offices, walk-in clinics and emergency department waiting rooms, it says. There, they may spread germs to pregnant women, frail elderly people, cancer patients and babies - all of whom are vulnerable to communicable disease.. It also says the doctors find it difficult to charge someone for a requirement from their employer, since sick notes arent insured by MSP, and gives the employer a warning: continue to require medical ...
OBJECTIVES: Depression can negatively impact work capacity, but treatment effects on sick leave and employment are unclear. This study evaluates if internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy (ICBT) or physical exercise (PE), with already reported positive effects on clinical outcome and short-term work ability, has better effects on employment, sick leave and long-term work ability compared with treatment as usual (TAU) for depressed primary care patients (German clinical trials: DRKS00008745).. METHODS: After randomisation and exclusion of patients not relevant for work-related analysis, patients were divided into two subgroups: initially unemployed (total n=118) evaluated on employment, and employed (total n=703) evaluated on long-term sick leave. Secondary outcomes were self-rated work ability and average number of sick days per month evaluated for both subgroups. Assessments (self-reports) were made at baseline and follow-up at 3 and 12 months.. RESULTS: For the initially unemployed ...
Downloadable! Using registry data on every employed Norwegian woman giving birth to her first child during the period 1995-2008, we describe patterns of certified and paid sick leave before, during and after pregnancy. By following the same women over time, we can explore how observed sick leave patterns are - or are not - related to the womens exiting (or reentering) employment. The results show that sick leave increases abruptly in the month of conception, and continues to grow throughout the term of pregnancy. Sick leave during pregnancy has been rising substantially compared with pre-pregnancy levels over the period 1995-2008, but this increase seems unrelated to womens growing age at first birth. In line with hypotheses of womens double burden, observed sick leave rates increase in the years after birth. However, when we handle some obvious selection issues - like sick leave during a succeeding pregnancy - the increase in womens sick leave in the years after birth dissolves. Overall, we find
Objectives Sickness absence is the outcome in many epidemiologic studies and is often based on summary measures such as the number of sickness absences per year. In this study the use of modern statistical methods was examined by making better use of the available information. Since sickness absence data deal with events occurring over time, the use of statistical models for survival data has been reviewed, and the use of frailty models has been proposed for the analysis of such data.. Methods Three methods for analyzing data on sickness absences were compared using a simulation study involving the following: (i) Poisson regression using a single outcome variable (number of sickness absences), (ii) analysis of time to first event using the Cox proportional hazards model, and (iii) frailty models, which are random effects proportional hazards models. Data from a study of the relation between the psychosocial work environment and sickness absence were used to illustrate the results.. Results ...
Paid sick leave gives workers an opportunity to regain their health, return to full productivity at work, and avoid spreading disease to their co-workers, all of which reduces employers overall absence expense. When used to care for sick children, it helps them get well faster and reduces job turnover of working parents. Workers who care for adult relatives, including the elderly, need paid sick leave to take care of their loved ones chronic and acute medical problems. However, new analysis of data collected by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reveals the inadequacy of paid sick leave coverage: more than 59 million workers have no such leave. Even more -- nearly 86 million -- do not have paid sick leave to care for sick children. Full-time workers, those in the public sector, and union members have the best sick leave coverage, while part-timers and low-wage workers have very low coverage rates. Expansion of paid sick leave and integration of family caregiving activities into authorized uses of
Purpose The aim of the study was to investigate sickness absence due to mental disorders in human service occupations. Methods Participants (n = 1,466,100) were randomly selected from two consecutive national 9-year cohorts from the Statistics Finland population database; each cohort represented a 33% sample of the Finnish population aged 25-54 years. These data were linked to diagnosis-specific records on receipt of sickness allowance, drawn from a national register maintained by the Social Insurance Institution of Finland, using personal identification numbers. Results Sociodemographic-adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) for sickness absence due to mental disorders in all human service occupations combined were 1.76 for men (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.70-1.84) and 1.36 for women (95% CI, 1.34-1.38) compared with men and women in all other occupations, respectively. Of the 15 specific human service occupations, compared with occupations from the same skill/education level without a significant
A new Public Service Sick Leave Scheme was introduced on 31st March 2014. The new scheme provides that employees who are absent on sick leave may receive up to a maximum of 3 months on full pay followed by 3 months on half pay in a rolling 4 year period. These new provisions apply to all health service employees (both officer and support staff grades) and supersede all existing arrangements. Details of the new arrangements are set out in HR Circular 020/2013 and HR Circular 005/2014 below.. Further information on sick leave arrangements can be found by clicking on the links below..

Background: The USA is one of only a few advanced economies globally that does not guarantee its workers paid sick leave. While there are plausible reasons why paid sick leave may be linked to mortality, little is known empirically about this association. Methods: In a pooled USA nationally-representative longitudinal sample of 57,323 working adults aged 18-85 years from the National Health Interview Surveys 2000-2002, paid sick leave was examined as a predictor of all-cause and cause-specific mortality. Multivariate Cox proportional hazards models were used to estimate the impact of paid sick leave on mortality. Results: Having paid sick leave through ones job was associated with 10% (hazards ratio, HR = 0.90; 95% CI = 0.81-0.996; p = 0.04), 14% (HR = 0.86; 95% CI = 0.74-0.99; p = 0.04), and 22% (HR = 0.78; 95% CI = 0.65-0.94; p = 0.01) significantly lower hazards of all-cause mortality after mean follow-up times of 11.1, 6.5, and 4.5 years, respectively.

Results A lower aerobic capacity was significantly related to sick leave (HR=0.98; t=-0.018; 95% CI: 0.970 to 0.994). There was a significant positive relationship between aerobic capacity and work ability (a=0.165; 95% CI: 0.122 to 0.208). Also, lower work ability was significantly related to sick leave after controlling for aerobic capacity (HR=0.97; b=-0.033, 95% CI: 0.949 to 0.987). Work ability mediated 27.8% (95% CI: 10.4 to 45.2) of the total effect of aerobic capacity on sick leave. There was no influence of age on the relationship between aerobic capacity and sick leave.. ...
BACKGROUND: Previous studies have not distinguished between different alcohol-use histories, which could have contributed to the current inconsistent evidence regarding the relationship between alcohol use and subsequent sickness absence. We thus examined alcohol use and subsequent diagnosis-specific sickness absence in groups with different levels of alcohol use, as well as in lifelong abstainers, former drinkers, and people with clinical alcohol use disorders. METHODS: The data of the population-based Health 2000 Survey (BRIF8901) of 3666 Finns aged 30-55 were linked with national registers on medically certified sickness absences lasting for , 10 working days (long-term) for all causes (2000 - 2010) and for mental or musculoskeletal disorders (2004-2010), as well as with registers on pensions and death (2000-2010 ...
AIM: To examine if non-bullied employees at work units (WUs) with workplace bullying have more long-term sickness absence (LTSA) than employees in non-bullying WUs.. METHODS: We included 7229 public health employees from 302 WUs and 3158 responders to a questionnaire on working conditions and health in 2007. WUs were classified into three categories of WUs; 1) no bullying (0% bullied); 2) moderate prevalence of bullying (,10% bullied); and 3) high prevalence of bullying (≥10% bullied). LTSA (≥30 consecutive days of sickness absence) during the following two years was obtained by linkage to the Danish register of sickness absence compensation benefits and social transfer payments.. RESULTS: Non-bullied co-workers in WUs, where bullying was reported had 15 to 22% more LTSA compared with non-bullying WUs.. CONCLUSION: Workplace bullying may be associated with LTSA in the entire WU. ...
Work capacity correlates weakly to disease concepts, which in turn are insufficient to explain sick leave behavior. With data mainly from Sweden, a welfare state with high sickness absence rates, our aim was to develop an explanatory theory of how to understand and deal with work absence and sick leave. We used classic grounded theory for analyzing data from |130 interviews with people working or on sick leave, physicians, social security officers, and literature. Several hundreds of typed and handwritten memos were the basis for writing up the theory. In this paper we present a theory of work incentives and how to deal with work absence. We suggest that work disability can be seen as hurt work drivers or people caught in mode traps. Work drivers are specified as work capacities + work incentives, monetary and non-monetary. Also, people can get trapped in certain modes of behavior through changed capacities or incentives, or by inertia. Different modes have different drivers and these can trap the
In situation (b) a second absence due to CMD occurs > 28 days after return to work. We define this situation as recurrent sickness absence due to CMD. As in situation a, the person-years are counted from the beginning of the first episode of sickness absence due. to CMDs until the end of the employment period. In situation (c) there is a second episode of absence due to CMDs within 28 days after return to work, which is not counted as a recurrence. In the example, the employee is employed during the entire period. In situation (d) there is an episode of sickness absence due to CMDs lasting more than 1 year. The person-years are counted until 1 year of sickness absence. Fig. 1 Calculation of recurrence Adriamycin density of sickness absence due to common mental disorders The RD of sickness absence due to CMDs in the diagnostic AZD3965 in vivo categories was calculated by dividing the number of employees with recurrent sickness absence due to CMDs by the person-years at risk in the ...
This study aimed to identify the psychosocial determinants that influence the duration of work disability among socially insured patients in Belgium. We found 14 psychosocial determinants that were significantly (p,0.10) related to the time until the end of the sick leave period. This model had a predictive value for long-term sickness absence (,6 months) of 80% (C-index), which indicates good to strong discriminative ability. The external validation of the model still indicated good discriminative ability (75%).. Most of our 14 factors are supported in the literature.12 We found 10 work related-factors; previous researchers have discussed physical work demands as a burden for returning to work.12-16 Den Boer et al also discussed job satisfaction in the case of work capacity at 6-month post-surgery.13 Kausto et al, Netterstrom and Marhold et al discussed the support by colleagues and by employers as important facilitators for returning to work.14 15 17 Meanwhile, Airaksinen did not find evidence ...
Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the joint association of multimorbidity and work ability with the risk of long-term sickness absence (LTSA) in the general working population. Methods: Cox regression analysis censoring for competing events (statutory retirement, early retirement, disability pension, immigration, or death) was performed to estimate the joint association of chronic diseases and work ability in relation to physical and mental demands of the job with the prospective risk for LTSA (defined as ≥6 consecutive weeks during 2-year follow-up) among 10 427 wage earners from the general working population (2010 Danish Work Environment Cohort Study). Control variables were age, gender, psychosocial work environment, smoking, leisure physical activity, body mass index, job group, and previous LTSA. Results: Of the 10 427 respondents, 56.8% had experienced ≥1 chronic disease at baseline. The fully adjusted model showed an association between number of chronic diseases and ...

Research evidence shows that gradual return to work or working part time is effective for those whose condition, such as cancer, does not allow returning to work on a full-time basis. To reduce the risk of prolonged sick-leave by keeping an employee active and connected with the work community, part-time sick leave is used in some countries.. In Finland, the law of partial sickness allowance was introduced in 2007. It is intended for persons who are employed or self-employed on a full-time basis and who are between 16 and 67 years of age. Employees on long-term sick leave can make an agreement with their employer to return to work on a part-time basis, of between 40% and 60% reduced work hours. While employed part time, employees are paid an earnings-related partial sickness allowance from a private pension insurer and/or the national insurance institution, KELA.. The partial sickness allowance is payable for up to 128 working days (for about three months). It is not available for periods ...

Objectives This study evaluated the effectiveness of a stress management intervention combining individual cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with a brief workplace intervention on self-reported measures of sleep and cognitive functioning among patients on sick leave due to work-related stress complaints.. Methods Participants were patients referred to the regional Department of Occupational Medicine. Inclusion criteria were (i) sick leave due to work-related stress complaints and (ii) a diagnosis of adjustment disorder/reactions to stress or mild depression. Participants (N=137) were randomized to either an intervention (N=57) or control (N=80) group. The intervention comprised six sessions with a psychologist and the offer of a small workplace intervention. Questionnaires were answered at baseline and after 4, and 10 months. Results Symptoms were significantly reduced over time in both groups but there was no significant treatment effect on sleep or cognitive outcomes at any time point. From ...
The purpose of this study was to determine risk factors for the occurrence of sickness absence due to low back pain (LBP) and to evaluate prognostic factors for return to work. A longitudinal study with 1-year follow-up was conducted among 853 shipyard workers. The cohort was drawn around January 2004 among employees in the shipyard industry. Baseline information was obtained by questionnaire on physical and psychosocial work load, need for recovery, perceived general health, musculoskeletal complaints, sickness absence, and health care use during the past year. During the 1-year follow-up for each subject medical certifications were retrieved for information on the frequency and duration of spells of sickness absence and associated diagnoses. Cox regression analyses were conducted on occurrence and on duration of sickness absence with hazard ratios (HR) with 95% confidence interval (95% CI) as measure of association. During the 1-year follow-up period, 14% of the population was on sick leave at ...
Objectives: To live with heart failure means that life is delimited. Still, people with heart failure can have a desire to stay active in working life as long as possible. Although a number of factors affect sick leave and rehabilitation processes, little is known about sick leave and vocational rehabilitation concerning people with heart failure. This study aimed to identify emotions and encounters with healthcare professionals as possible predictors for the self-estimated ability to return to work in people on sick leave due to heart failure. Design: A population-based cross-sectional study design was used. Setting: The study was conducted in Sweden. Data were collected in 2012 from 3 different sources: 2 official registries and 1 postal questionnaire. Participants: A total of 590 individuals were included. Statistics: Descriptive statistics, correlation analysis and linear multiple regression analysis were used. Results: 3 variables, feeling strengthened in the situation (beta=-0.21, p=0.02), ...
Paid long-term sick leave is the most desirable health-related employee benefit, according to a survey.. Financial and insurance-related health benefits are overwhelmingly more popular than those related to preventative measures such as gym membership, weight loss support, flu vaccination or counselling, the study of more 1,200 employees by Aon Consulting found.. Alex Bennett, head of healthcare consulting at the pensions consultancy firm, said: At a time when workers are worried about their financial futures, it is no surprise that rather than concentrate on staying healthy they focus on how they are going to manage in the event that they do become sick.. Preferences to health benefits varied according to age, the survey also found. Healthcare and insurance have greater appeal to older workers with 80% of those aged over 55 rating critical illness insurance as highly desirable and desirable. Private medical insurance (72%), health screening (77%), healthcare cash plans (67%) and the ...
Well weve had scorching weather (yes even up here in Scotland!) and now the Euros 2016 are on - you cant blame people for wishing life was just one big holiday. With all these distractions it sometimes feels like work just gets in the way of having a good time!. But sunny day skivers are probably the least of employers worries. After all, a little bit of sunshine can boost moods and alleviate stress- which could actually do wonders for employee well-being and motivation at work.. No, theyre more likely to lose sleep over those employees who are off on long-term sick leave. And theyre right to be worried. Around 250,000 people leave employment each year due to ill health, around 1% of the workforce.1. And, during our working lives, almost 40% of us will stop earning an income because were ill or injured.2. More than a financial payout. Its clearly important to have a financial safety net in place. But is a financial payout all people need to get back on their feet after theyve been ill? ...

National figures estimate that 1 in 4 adults are affected by longstanding muscle, joint, bone or back pain problems are responsible for up to 30% of GP consultations. They are also the most common reason for repeat consultations with GPs.. It is estimated that nearly 60% of people who are on long-term sick leave state these problems as the reason, with low back pain reported by about 80% of people at some time in their life. It is also estimated that the majority of patients (70-90%) attending orthopaedic out-patients do not require, and many do not wish, to undergo surgery.. At the same time, we wish to reduce the waiting time from referral to treatment. Many patients referred to rheumatology departments have non-inflammatory joint or soft tissue problems that can be successfully managed in primary care.. We are committed to improve healthcare and health outcomes by promoting wellbeing and preventative healthcare, delivering healthcare locally in primary, community and home settings and ...
In the second paper, we studied risk factors for long-term (> 8 weeks) sickness absence due to musculoskeletal disorders (LSM), focusing on the influence of the psychosocial and physical work environment, and a special aim was to reveal any gender differences in the associations. We found that men and women aged 40 and 45 had an LSM risk approximately 50% greater than that of subjects aged 30. There was a strong education gradient for both genders. Low job control had a strong effect, especially in men, whereas the effect of low job security was modest. Having shift/night work or rotating hours had a strong effect on the LSM risk, particularly in men. The associations with the job exposure variables were generally stronger for men; still, the LSM risk was considerably higher for women because of the high risk in women without the studied job exposures. Adding the interaction term (having both psychosocial end physical exposure) to the analysis did not significantly improve the model, and this ...

This thesis is a study on group differences in alcohol-related sickness absence. It consists of four papers: The first is an extensive review article of international research on the alcohol ?? sickness absence association. The second and third articles present studies of group differences in alcohol-related sickness absence in Norway. The fourth article is a study of group differences in attitudes towards alcohol-related sickness absence and presenteeism in Norway. Paper 1 is a review of the alcohol-absence association, to my knowledge the first review of studies on this topic. Following a literature search of peer reviewed journals, our inclusion criteria were met by 27 articles testing 48 associations. The study found that empirical evidence for an association between alcohol use and both long- and short-term absence was strong. All associations with a high quality score were statistically significant. The association did not vary systematically across measures of alcohol use. The association ...
Years ago pregnant teachers were forced to take unpaid leave or resign from teaching. Association supported teachers, including one teacher from Virginia, went to the United States Supreme Court to invalidate rules that automatically forced pregnant teachers out of work. Now pregnant teachers can continue teaching as long as they are medically able. You cant be forced on leave because you are pregnant OR denied paid leave because you are pregnant. Your eligibility for leave must turn on medical opinion about your ability to work. Leave for child care can be excluded from paid sick leave, but not a medical disability related to pregnancy or child birth ...
In the paper is considered identification of coefficients in equations explaining a continuous variable, say the number of sickness absence days of an individual per year, by cohort, time and age, subject to their definitional identity. Extensions of a linear equation to polynomials, including additive polynomials, are explored. The cohort+time=age identity makes the treatment of interactions important. If no interactions between the three variables are included, only the coefficients of the linear terms remain unidentified unless additional information is available. Illustrations using a large data set for individual long-term sickness absence in Norway are given. The sensitivity to the estimated marginal effects of cohort and age at the samplemean, as well as conclusions about the equations curvature, are illustrated. We find notable differences in this respect between linear and quadratic equations on the one hand and cubic and fourth-order polynomials on the other. ...

The Department of Energy (DOE) takes its commitment to recruiting, retaining, and motivating a highly skilled, diverse, and productive workforce very seriously. Our objective is to be the employer of choice in the public sector.. The U.S. Department of Energy is the Top-Ranked Cabinet-Level Agency for employee satisfaction and engagement according to the 2005 Best Places to Work in the Federal Government Rankings.. Below is a summary of additional employment benefits and family-friendly programs.. Annual and Sick Leave. As a new Federal employee, you will earn both Annual (vacation) leave and Sick leave. Employees earn four hours of Sick leave each pay period during their careers. There is no accrual limit for Sick leave hours, but they belong to the Federal government and are not paid to you if you leave civil service. If you were to leave and later return to civil service, the hours previously accrued would be credited to you.. Annual leave works differently. Employees earn four hours of ...
Whereas women in the 1970s and 1980s increased their overall burden by combining unpaid caregiving tasks on top of working life, the struggle for gender equality has clearly led to results, both at home and in the workplace. Today, mothers have access to considerable assistance in relation to childcare, and men have taken on more of the household chores. In addition, the availability of day-care and after-school programmes has improved dramatically. New technology has also made housework an easier task.. Nonetheless, the second-shift hypothesis, as it is often called, is still often invoked to explain why women in Norway have nearly 70 per cent higher sickness absence than men.. Our study has found no evidence to support the claim that the extra work children entail is the general cause of womens higher sickness absence. And viewed in isolation, we see that having a child in itself does not increase sickness absence among women.. ...

OBJECTIVE: To prospectively investigate whether sickness presenteeism (SP), ie, going to work despite illness, has an impact on future sickness absenteeism. METHODS: Two study populations were used, one female dominated from the public sector that included 3757 employees, and one male dominated from the private sector comprising 2485 employees. RESULTS: SP on more than five occasions during the baseline year (2000) was a statistically significant risk factor for future sick leave (2002 and 2003) of more than 30 days among both populations even after adjusting for previous sick leave, health status, demographics, lifestyle, and work-related variables (2002, public sector, relative risk = 1.40; private sector, relative risk = 1.51). CONCLUSIONS: SP may be an important phenomenon to consider when evaluating measures aimed at decreasing sickness absenteeism because more SP may lead to future sickness absence.. ...

Identification of factors associated with work disability in cancer survivors on long term sick leave may support these survivors in choosing effective measures to facilitate vocational rehabilitation and return to work. Therefore, this study aims to disclose factors associated with work disability in cancer survivors at 24 months of sick leave. A cross sectional study was conducted. The study population consisted of employed sick-listed cancer survivors, aged between 18 and 64 years. They received a questionnaire at 24-month sick leave, the maximum period of sick leave allowed by Dutch social security legislation. Data were linked with the outcome of work disability assessment, as performed by the Dutch social security agency. A hierarchical multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed to identify factors associated with work disability. Data of 351 valid cases were analysed. The multivariate analysis showed that, for cancer survivors at 24-month sick leave, Dutch nationality, higher
Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study was to identify symptoms associated with subjective memory complaints among subjects who are currently on sick leave due to symptoms of chronic pain, fatigue, depression, anxiety and insomnia. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study, subjects (n = 167) who were currently on sick leave were asked to complete an extensive survey consisting of the following: items addressing their sociodemographics, one item from the SF-8 health survey measuring pain, Chalder Fatigue Questionnaire, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, Insomnia Severity Index and Everyday Memory Questionnaire - Revised. General linear modeling (GLM) was used to analyze variables associated with SMCs. Results: Symptoms of fatigue (p-value uniquely and significantly associated with perceived memory failures. The associations with symptoms of pain, depression and insomnia were not statistically significant. Conclusions: Subjective memory complaints should be recognized as part of
Results 15 345 working-age residents (49.6% women) with knee OA were identified. Compared with the general population, the RR (95% CI) of having had one or more episodes of sick leave during the year was 1.82 (1.73 to 1.91) for women and 2.03 (1.92 to 2.14) for men with knee OA. The corresponding risk for disability pension was 1.54 (1.48 to 1.60) for women and 1.36 (1.28 to 1.43) for men with knee OA. The annual mean number of sick days was 87 for each patient with knee OA and 57 for the general population (age- and sex-standardised). Of all sick leave and disability pension in the entire population, 2.1% of days were attributable to knee OA or associated comorbidity in the patients with knee OA (3.1% for sick leave and 1.8% for disability pension).. ...

Until national legislation is passed providing earned paid sick time, state and local provisions can provide this important family-friendly employment standard. As of March 2016, five states have passed earned paid sick time legislation, including three of our New England neighbors, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont. As well, at least fifteen cities and counties have passed legislation providing earned paid sick leave, including San Francisco, Washington, DC, New York, Philadelphia, Portland (OR), and San Diego.. The experience of those jurisdictions that have been leaders in enacting family-supporting earned paid sick leave is instructive. In San Francisco, the first jurisdiction to introduce earned paid sick leave, employment in the five years after implementation of their earned paid sick leave provisions grew twice as fast in the city than in neighboring counties lacking earned paid sick leave, and grew even faster in the food service and hospitality industries with significant ...

The Kansas City, Kansas, Public Schools Board of Education discussed three options for employee COVID vaccination and testing at a board meeting Tuesday night.. No decision was made on requiring employee vaccinations or testing at this time. The options are examples of possible policies, according to administrators.. The first option presented Tuesday night was to require all eligible staff to get vaccinated on or before Nov. 19. Those who do not have proof on file with the district on or before Nov. 19 would be required to take weekly COVID tests. Under the first option, those who provide proof of COVID vaccination would receive five additional sick leave days for the 2021-2022 school year.. Option 2 was similar to the first, except it highly encourages, not requires, eligible staff to get vaccinated on or before Nov. 19. Weekly testing would be required of those who do not have vaccinations on file. All staff who provide proof of vaccination would get five additional sick leave days for the ...

Tissue-resident and infiltrating immune cells are continuously exposed to molecules derived from the local cells that often come in form of secreted factors, such as cytokines. These factors are known to impact the immune cells biology. However, very little is known about whether the tissue resident immune cells in return also affect the local environment. In this study, with the help of RNA-sequencing, we show for the first time that long-term absence of epidermal resident Langerhans cells led to significant gene expression changes in the local keratinocytes and resident dendritic epidermal T cells. Thus, immune cells might play an active role in maintaining tissue homeostasis, which should be taken in consideration at data interpretation.
The aim of this study was to investigate the associations between factors in working- and family life and long-term sick listing ≥90 days in Swedish women. The hypothesis that there are associations beyond those which are strictly connected to the medical diagnosis that could be associated with long-term sick leave in Swedish women was confirmed. In this study factors connected with occupational work and own children were studied, but the underlying disease or dysfunction was not further investigated. The results provide evidence that factors in working life connected with competence and influence, industrial mobility, dissatisfaction with work tasks, mental and physical strain above capacity, are associated with long-term sick-listing.. Long-term sick listing show associations with number of children, age at birth of first child and having the main responsibility for own children. The picture of a long-term sick-listed woman could be that she had had her first child rather early, and have ...

Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the prospective association of cumulative mechanical exposure during working life with health-related labor market outcomes. Methods: This prospective cohort study combines data from 5076 older workers (age 49-63 years) from the Copenhagen Aging and Midlife Biobank with a job exposure matrix and a national register containing information on social transfer payment. By coding individual job histories from the Danish version of ISCO-codes (International Standard Classification of Occupations), we calculated cumulative occupational mechanical exposures from a JEM for ton-years (lifting 1000 kg each day in one year), lifting-years (lifting loads weighing ≥20 kg ,10 times each day in one year), kneeling-years (kneeling for one hour each day in one year) and vibration-years (whole-body vibration for one hour each day in one year). Cox-regression analyses estimated the relative risk of register-based long-term sickness absence (LTSA) and disability ...
The objective of this study was to investigate prevalence and factors affecting sickness absenteeism among flower farm industry workers in Bishoftu town, Ethiopia. A workplace-based cross-sectional study was conducted from March to April 2018. A sample of 444 participants were included using a stratified sampling technique. We performed binary logistic regression analysis to identify factors associated with sickness absenteeism. The entire sampled workers (N = 444) were interviewed. Of the respondents, 55.6% (N = 247) were females. The mean age was 24.2 (SD ± 6.6) years. About 54.5% (N = 242) [95% CI (50.2, 59.0)] of the participants indicated that they had experienced sickness absence of at least 3 consecutive working days in the past 12 months. A total of 1357 days were lost with an average duration of 5.6 days per worker per year. Female sex [AOR: 2.63; 95% CI (1.723, 4.036)], sickness presenteeism [AOR: 3.15; 95% CI (2.026, 4.904)], job dissatisfaction [AOR: 1.60; 95% CI (1.047, 2.462)] and

CNBC spoke to current front-line Chipotle employees who werent identified for obvious reasons, who told the network that their managers dont follow the new sick leave policy, and other parts of the new food safety procedures are only observed when a food safety auditor is present.. The policy is supposed to be that employees get paid sick leave so they arent financially incentivized to work while sick, especially if they have signs of a possible foodborne illness like a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea. On the ground, this policy reportedly isnt being observed.. My boss has told me that I have no option but to come in tomorrow, and its been heavily implied that my job will be in jeopardy if I dont come in, one purported worker posted on Reddit. He later told CNBC, Ive since had one of my managers tell us that they only abide by the sick policy about 40 percent of the time..

As in almost all sectors, the intensive care department at the Hôpital de Chicoutimi is severely understaffed. So much so that, at the moment, we dont know how to keep the services running over the weekend.. Since May, the department has recorded seven departures, including four trips just last week. In addition to resignations, many employees are already on sick leave either due to burnout or other health issues, and then maternity leave is added as well.. Whether were talking about leaving on sick leave, preventive withdrawals due to maternity or other reasons, all the pressure is on employees who remain in the position, explained the president of the Saguenay-Lac-Saint Care Professionals Association. Jean, Julie Bouchard.. In the short term, health authorities are working hard to recruit staff from other institutions in the region or elsewhere in Quebec to provide service at least this weekend.. Another solution being considered is the transfer of patients currently in intensive care to ...
Individual factors associated with sickness absence have previously been studied with generalized linear models. Using Bayesian methods, we compare generalized linear models to Gaussian process models, which are flexible non-linear regression models that allow local changes in the response surface structure. We find Gaussian process models superior for predicting sickness absence with health questionnaire data in a sample of employees of a Finnish company ...

The aim of this thesis was to investigate if the outcome of rehabilitation efforts is depending on what view health care has in relation to what need of care people have and if the outcome for different groups of patients with low-back complaints (specific versus non-specific complaints) is various successful. The outcome is measured in length of sick leave, number of spells and granted sickness and disability pensions.. This thesis combines a theoretical analysis of different theories of health with studies of two empirical materials. One material comprises a group of individuals with low-back complaints (specific versus non-specific complaints) from a nation-wide survey of Living Conditions conducted by Statistics Sweden in 1981. The other material comprises a sample of individuals on sick leave either due to low-back complaints or other kinds of complaints than low-back complaints. The outcome of these studies are measured as to what extent people with low-back complaints are granted a ...

Any benefits from workers compensation covering the first seven days will then revert to the proper budgetary item of the department. Sick leave credits equal to the money value of the above credits which are reimbursed by the Self Insurance Plan to the department shall be restored to the employees credit ...
But when FMLA-covered employers vie for top talent, they usually offer prospects paid holidays. Unfortunately, when employees are offered more than one type of paid leave, theyre often more confused than grateful. Be prepared for these common questions.. Do holidays count against the employees FMLA leave entitlement?. It depends on the circumstances. The U.S. Department of Labor provides three conditions.. 1. When an employee takes a full week of FMLA leave and a holiday occurs during that week, the full week is counted as FMLA leave.. Example: The employee takes FMLA leave from Monday to the following Monday, and Memorial Day (a company holiday) occurs during that week. Since the employee has taken a full week of FMLA leave, the entire week is regarded as FMLA leave.. 2. When the employee takes less than a full week of FMLA leave and a holiday occurs during that week, the holiday does not count as FMLA leave except if the employee was scheduled to work on the holiday but took FMLA leave on ...
Differences in attitudes have been suggested as a plausible explanation for the persistent gender difference in sick leave. We investigate whether there are gender differences in opinions on the use of sickness absence in situations where, strictly speaking, it is not legitimate. The analysis shows that women have a greater inclination than men do to accept this type of unjustified sickness absence. The difference is small but robust over time and betweenage groups. In addition, men are generallystricter than women when considering different reasons for sick leave, and the length of an absence ...

Downloadable! We analyze the consequences for sickness absence of a selective softening of job security legislation for small firms in Sweden in 2001. According to our differences-in-difference estimates, aggregate absence in these firms fell by 0.2-0.3 days per year. This aggregate net figure hides important effects on different groups of employees. Workers remaining in the reform firms after the reform reduced their absence by about one day. People with a high absence record tended to leave reform firms, but these firms also became less reluctant to hire people with a record of high absence.
This is my first time to claim an SSS sickness benefit. I was inspired to file a claim for my infected eczema after reading Mommy Joys post about voluntary members benefits. All I can say is it is a bit tedious and that is probably why many, even if they are fully aware of this benefit, decide not to claim it anymore.. I had to go back to the SSS office three times for this claim. The first I did not know that physical examination by their own nurses/doctors is only done fro 8 AM to 12 NN. I went there after lunch. I went back the following day in the morning. I was examined but was asked to go back again because the recent premium payments I made were not yet posted and they asked another report from the doctor who saw me. The third one is today when I had to submit the claim, which also took the longest!. To avoid hassles just like what I had gone through, here are some tips.. ...

The cashier is counting out your change, but right before she hands you 83 cents and sends you on your merry way, she lets out a big sneeze. Gross, you think. Why didnt she just stay at home? You gingerly take your coins, and douse yourself in hand sanitizer the second you get to the car. Theres no way you can afford to get sick this week. For many people, riding out a cold on the couch with a mug of steaming tea simply isnt an option - especially if you have children and a job that doesnt let you take time off. For the millions of workers without access to paid sick leave, they simply cant afford to stay at home - even if it means putting their coworkers and customers at risk. In the United States - the only industrialized country that does not require employers to provide paid sick leave - 40 percent of workers in the private sector must go to work even if they are sick, or go without pay if they stay at home. Without paid time off, these workers are not only suffering through an ...
Many of us know someone who we believe has abused their companys sick leave policy in the past. Calling in sick - even if you arent - is not what you might call a rarity in the American business world.. That said, there are also a large number of people who actually should stay home from work because they are sick, but they dont, spreading their germs and generally adding to a business costs and lowered levels of productivity.. According to a new survey, more than one-quarter of American employees - 26 percent - go into work when they are sick either because their company does not offer paid sick days or because, if they miss a day, it would be much more difficult to catch up with their workload.. The survey, conducted by NSF International, a public health company, was conducted via telephone. The group asked 1,003 people over the age of 18; 502 respondents were men.. The survey also showed that 33 percent of Americans wait until their illness symptoms are too bad to ignore any longer ...

Purpose To explore the usefulness of the Readiness for return to work scale in individuals participating in occupational rehabilitation, by assessing the association between the scale and return to work (RTW), and comparing the scale to a question assessing individuals expectations about length of sick leave. Method Prospective cohort study with 9 months follow-up. Participants took part in one of two randomized clinical trials. Associations between the Readiness for RTW scale and RTW was analyzed using linear and logistic regression, with adjustment for age, gender and education. The Readiness for RTW scale was compared to a self-reported question assessing participants expectations about length of sick leave using adjusted/pseudo R2. Results For participants not working (n = 96), high scores on two dimensions (Prepared for action-self-evaluative and Prepared for action-behavioral) were associated with a higher probability of sustainable RTW and more working days. For those working (n = 121), ...
Complaint to the Commission des droits de la personne et de la jeunesse du Québec (CDPJQ) against an employer. SUMMARY OF THE FACTS:. On March 15, 2005, Steve Lebœuf was hired, through a placement agency, to replace an employee on sick leave.. On December 7, 2005, Steve Lebœuf applied to his employer for a job after having worked for several months (10 months and 3 weeks) for the company, again through the placement agency. Mr. Lebœuf had only good comments on his work performance and a good evaluation of one of his managers. However, the Human Resources turned down his application. The reason given refers to a situation with a previous employer, seven years earlier, in 1999. This previous employer had acted in a discriminatory manner by asking him not to wear his religious symbol at work, given that the clientele of this resource was considered to be at risk (troubled youths aged 12 to 17).. During the telephone interview on Friday, April 7, 2006, the human resources manager was ...

I am super paranoid when it comes to getting sick from other people and now that I am working with the public again, I find that I am always worrying about germs. People who are suffering from chronic illnesses have a weakened immune system and we can get sick a lot easier than a healthy person. Whenever I know that someone in the family has been sick, especially when it is one of the kids, I try to keep myself and our son away from whoever isnt feeling well.. I know that some people think I take things too far and worry too much about getting sick, but they dont realize that when I get sick it lingers and lingers. Now that I am exposed to hundreds of people every day, I am constantly thinking about what all Im being exposed to. Just last week I had a lady come through my line who was sick with pneumonia - and she was out shopping - in a public place - around children and many other people. When she told me that she was sick with pneumonia, I asked her what in the heck she was doing out and ...
Have you heard of sick leave? I have a work ethic that says I must not take sick leave unless Im flat on my back in hospital. And I was last October so was forced to take time off, and not just because theres no wi-fi or 3G in that particular hospital, but because I could not sit on a chair without agonising pain from my self-inflicted bulging disc. I had to take a few more weeks after I self discharged for reasons I wont go into, because of the sitting up problem. And I thought Id start back after the festive season which wasnt very festive as I spent it lying flat on my face on a deconstructed childrens bunk bed, watching Netflix through the bars on the end of the bed. But I still cant handle it and now Im on a guilt trip and taking it out of my annual leave allocation. So, the point of all that bla... is this: go to your doctor and get a fit not for a month and clean up the vomit, have a shower and sleep as much as you need.
