Connie from Bayview

My sister is a 61 year old Reg. Nurse in North Shore hospital. Diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer 5 years ago. Due to a very aggressive cancer, she is still on medications. A high risk for COVID19. Why is she still there and so exposed , you asked. Honestly, she is so scared as her immunity is low. Nurse Manager said she will not be given Covid19 patients. Then she emailed OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY for an assessment risk. She was shock, when the reply was" YOU ARE EXPECTED TO COME TO WORK UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE". (OMG... Did you really assessed her condition ???. )
Last was the NZ Nursing Organization. She was told to read the guidelines. That's it ! My sister is so frustrated that no one is listening to her. She cried to me saying that the worst thing that can happen to her is to die in isolation with no family around. Hope someone out there can hear her plight

UPDATE : My sister was told not to report to work for 4 weeks. After this we dont know what will happen
