    If your feeling sick and from work I would play up on it and try for a sick note but its up to you if you wanted to go on sick from working hun x

    sorry to be blunt hun but I worked in three care home one of which has been shut down now lol. I had a fellow worker who got pregnant and because of the germs involved and all that she got signed off by the doctor as there was an outbreak of random illness and a few cases of C-diff wasn't pretty. I personally hated working at each of them as the nurses treated me like poo. I quit and walked out of the last one as I'd not slept and was being forced to come into work x (nights).

    you got to think what you want to put first hunny work or baby x I'd see if you could maybe sign off work and claim benefits or something :S sounds like a crappy place if they aren't placing you away from the personal care side of things

    I think the GP would give you a note, especially if you are also feeling stressed out by what's happening. However, ms can last for quite a while, not sure if you'd get the entire time off. I take it work know you are pregnant?

    I know what you mean on the wieght side of things I moved residents in several homes using the wrong methods as the staff there were lazy and took shortcuts with everything. I feel sorry for people in homes x

    i signed myself off sick from my support worker job at 12 weeks as they said if i was being sick then i shouldnt come in as i wasnt fit for work. after that week i miraculously got a risk assessment done and got taken off the difficult jobs etc. then at 25 weeks i got pushed by a client and filled in an incident report and miraculously got moved to another house where i wasnt allowed to do anything but the ironing. now im on holiday til mat leave starts.

    your not letting anyone down by looking out for yourself and if anything happens to you and they havent risk assessed your job u could sue. dont do it if u think its a risk, they cant make you and if they havent assessed it then its their fault and they havent got a leg to stand on really. if your still having bad sickness the doctor can sign you off work for as long as necessary too. you cannot be penalised for any sickness taken while pregnant either so your work just have to lump it!

    I've been working on a ward where there has been multiple cases of C.diff and MRSA.. Also, they've had the portable x-ray machines on the ward fairly often, and was only told to stand off the ward the other day due to radiation (found out about stickybean after this) when other times I have been working fairly close to it, and been down to watch Patients have scans, xrays etc.

    Will this affect my baby? Getting worried now, not even thought of this until now I'll be devastated if it has an affect :'( x

    legally, your employer has an obligation to make sure your work will not put you or your babys health and safety at risk .

    i think working in that sort of environment is classed as a risk, and your employer is supposed to offer alternative work if possible.
    also, if you are working in a risky environment, your employer must do a risk assesment.
