When it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is probably a....DUCK, DADGUMMIT! What is the deal-these people can't see the forest for the trees, or what?
You didn't mention anybody doing pedal pulses or ultrasound studies-those would have been first thing done in triage, and first order by MD, in addition to coag studies and a total chem profile and CBC. I can't be lieve this crap-you could've lost your foot!
BTW-PRN Nurse, Ibuprofen is contraindicated when taking ASA because it potentiates the effect of the ASA by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis.
Now, ThisNurse, about your job. I am playing Devil's Advocate here.......before your toe began bothering you so acutely, what was your attendance like?.......and, did you keep your Nurse Manager updated (as soon as you knew what was going on) as to what was going on?.......does your facility allow you to work with restrictions that are not due to a work-related problem?.......could you have worked, and chose not to, because of the pain?........we were not allowed to leave messages when we called in, because they often were not received in time. We had to speak with the Nurse Manager, or the Charge Nurse so there wouldn't be any incident of a nurse waiting 4 hours to give report! I would've called a lot sooner than she did!
I know your biggest concern is your health, but you also have the responsibility to yourself to provide for yourself. If you have to go over to your facility (not a bad idea at all-let them see what your toe and foot look like) to talk with your manager, get yorself on over there. Tell her that you will provide whatever type of documentation she requires, and request FMLA leave. Do NOT wait for them to call you-it indicates a blase' attitude. Remember also, the adage; "decision by indecision." If you don't actively intervene on your behalf, your future will be decided by somebody else, and probably not in the way you would like.
Keep us posted!
