The inspirational doctor paralyzed from the waist who can still perform surgeries thanks to remarkable stand-up wheelchair:"A successful Missouri surgeon has beaten unbelievable odds by returning to the OR after suffering sudden paralysis from the waist down. Dr. Ted Rummel lost his ability to walk or stand when a blood-filled cyst on his spine burst in 2010. A year of intense rehabilitation later, he was back in the game. Rummel even overcame the hindrance of sitting as he worked by utilizing an ingenious stand-up wheel chair. Now, the tenacious orthopedic surgeon can do virtually everything in the OR he previously could and maintains his physical strength with daily exercise and his emotional strength thanks to a deeply devoted family." http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2513994/Paralyzed-doctor-performs-surgery-thanks-stand-wheelchair.html

Nurse Attorneys:

Americans with Disabilities Act, by Joe A. Flores, JD, FNP, MSN, CCRN, Malenursemagazine.com:"Thankfully, over the last few decades, the government has provided for individuals with disabilities through the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). What is ADA? The federal Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) makes it illegal to discriminate against someone with a disability. This law took effect on July 26, 1992, for companies with 25 or more employees, and July 26, 1994, for companies with 15 or more employees. What Qualifies as a Disability? A disability is a substantial physical or mental impairment that limits one or more major life activities such as walking, breathing, hearing, seeing or learning. Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and HIV infection are considered disabilities."

We are continuously making efforts to increase the awareness of the healthcare community as to our desire to return and continue working with accommodations. It appears that once a nurse or healthcare worker is injured, either physically, mentally or emotionally; the healthcare community throws us away and expects us to accept it. We are not interested in leaving nursing or healthcare. We can still offer our experience and knowledge to our colleagues. We want to find ways for healthcare workers that have a disability to remain employed. If you are one of these or just interested in changing things, we welcome you to our forum and encourage your feedback. We would like you to post some personal information such as your disability story as we like to know a little about our members.

Consider Nurses with Disabilities, Donna Carol Maheady, ARNP, EdD, Nursing Spectrum:"AS THE MOTHER OF A DAUGHTER with disabilities, I’ve been involved in handicap advocacy efforts for many years, but it wasn’t until I conducted my doctoral dissertation research1 that I learned about the contributions that nurses with disabilities can make to the profession — and the regrettably scarce resources available for this growing group of RNs. That’s why I took a giant step two years ago and created a nonprofit website for nurses and students with disabilities. Called www.ExceptionalNurse.com , the site serves as a resource network for nurses and students with disabilities. It provides links to disability-related organizations, technology, equipment, financial aid, mentors, employment opportunities, and legal issues, as well as related articles and research. Since the website’s debut, more than 8,000 visitors have logged on."

The Commission interprets employment discrimination laws, monitors the federal sector employment discrimination program, provides funding and support to state and local Fair Employment Practices Agencies (FEPAs), and sponsors outreach and technical assistance programs. Any individual who believes he or she has been discriminated against in employment may file an administrative charge with the EEOC. After investigating the charge, the EEOC determines if there is "reasonable cause" to believe discrimination has occurred. If "reasonable cause" is found, the EEOC attempts to conciliate the charge by reaching a voluntary resolution between the charging party and the respondent. If conciliation is not successful, the Commission may bring suit in federal court. As part of the administrative process, the EEOC may also issue a Right-to-Sue-Notice to the charging party, allowing the charging party to file an individual action in court without the Agency's involvement."

    Hearing-Impaired Nurse Files Suit Against Hospital:"A former Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital registered nurse has filed a lawsuit against the hospital seeking more than $750,000 in damages, alleging the hospital refused to accommodate her disability, created a hostile work environment, discriminated against her and harassed her. The lawsuit was filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court by Kimberly Henderson, who said she has 4 percent hearing in one ear and 25 to 40 percent in the other. Henderson alleges she was forced to resign from Newhall Memorial on Nov. 19 after the hospital deliberately failed and refused to accommodate her need for a hearing-assist dog to help her perform her job duties as a nurse. "Filing this lawsuit was a difficult thing to do," said Henderson, who says she lost her home and car after resigning from Newhall Memorial. "As nurses we don't do that, but it came to a point where what they were doing was wrong. It was morally, ethically and lawfully wrong. I went from an independent middle-class life to having my brother support me and my 2-year-old child." Newhall Memorial spokeswoman Andie Bogdan said that since the hospital had yet to be served with the lawsuit, she couldn't comment on it."
