I am really torn and lost right now and begging for your prayers. My name is Brandy and I have been a member of Sparkpeople for almost two years. I haven't posted on here in a long time because I have been going through some rough stuff. The main thing I'm struggling with though is my job. I have been a caregiver for a year and a half now and until recently have always loved my job.
I say "until recently" because about six months ago my boss found out that one of the insurance companies that we have a contract with (the biggest one actually) is coming out to audit their clients' folders. The office is required by these insurance companies to do Home Visits where we "check up" on the client and it gives the client an opportunity to file any complaints they have. We are supposed to do one for every client EVERY three months. Some clients have not had a visit since 2005!
I felt bad for my boss at first because she just took over the west side of the valley and she wasn't going to look very good to the insurance company. I figured she would explain that it was the Supervisor before that screwed it up so bad. No. She directed me to go out and convince the clients to sign four or five Visit Packets (they consist of eight papers) but to backdate them so it looked like they were up to date. I was so surprised that she said this because I thought she was an honest person and would make some positive changes to the company. And we had just had a big meeting about fraud.
I told her I didn't feel comfortable doing that because we could get in legal trouble. Plus, older people are very touchy about what they sign and it wasn't fair to ask them not to date them. So, in the end I said no and that didn't sit well with my boss or her boss. That's when they started making my work life horrible.
I was called into the office shortly after this and told that I had too many absences and if I had one more in the following six months I would be immediately fired. I couldn't understand why the Human Resources department was behind this and what they were talking about. The only absences I had were the two times I was in the hospital with life threatening illnesses and when I had the flu. I had a biopsy come back showing that I had cervical cancer cells which put me out for two weeks and then I had an ovarian cyst rupture and collide with a bacterial infection which poisoned my blood. That also caused me to be in the hospital for two weeks. At the time they were very sympathetic due to the fact that I could have died but now they were using it against me and they wrote to HR about my absences putting that I was sick on each date.
Brandy was absent 7/21,7/22,7/23 etc. So, I could see why I looked so bad to HR. They have done other things to put me over the edge such as send me to houses where the client doesn't speak English, or send me to houses that no other caregiver wants to go to, and I would work 20 days in a row or something like that to help out a fellow caregiver then ask for a day off other then my normal day and I would get in trouble for asking for time off when I'm "supposed" to be available.
It's all just ridiculous and I've had enough. So, I recently applied for an office job at a very well known company. The pay is better then I could ever imagine, the benefits are awesome, and I know a women who has worked there for seven years and she couldn't be happier. I got a call back and had a great phone interview. I then had a face to face interview last Tuesday. I bought a new business outfit for it and everything. I think I did well in the interview. I did say "UH" a lot but I made a joke out of it and we both laughed. I was told that I would get my answer via e-mail in three to five business days and with the Fourth of July that would make it Wed. that I should hear something by.
Please pray for me that I will get this job. I do believe that God put this opportunity in front of me because I prayed one night to lead me to something else and the next day I received a text mess. with the info I needed to apply to this company. I would like nothing more then to leave the company I'm with. I could also use some advice on whether or not I should go to the labor board and turn them in on what they are doing.
Thank you so much for reading this far. This job would be a life changing opportunity so your prayers are so appreciated. I am sorry that this post has become a novel.
God Bless you all,
Brandy Star Myers
