TriageNow, a WorkComp phone nurse group was recently stumbled upon and we suggested they contact Wyndham since Wyndham’s staff are clueless on how to handle a worker injury. They are following on Twitter now. https://twitter.com/LindaAyres311.LinkedIn is proving to be a great place for outreach, and I keep making it to the top of the Wyndham stats. https://www.linkedin.com/in/lindaayres311 Maybe for YOUR level of investigative reporting, you can work in an interview with some Wyndham key executives?.Their top peeps are in New Jersey http://www.wyndhamworldwide.com/about-wyndham-worldwide/our-leadership You or one of your colleagues could approach them with an angle that perhaps you can help solve their future work comp dilemmas and the bad will that will no doubt build.
We (me and a few Injured Friends and Warriors) hope to have a new website up and running before the WorkComp Laude Awards Gala, and we would like to have a questionnaire Survey available to facilitate further communications.
Will YOU participate?

I changed my Orthopedic regular 45 day visit from December 5 so that I can be rested for the December 6th experience. The doctor’s office was THRILLED to hear that I was nominated as a finalist for the CompLaude Awards. She said, “Tell how how bad things are. They need to hear someone. Your case should have been gone a long time ago!”…. and she knows how hard they have fought to try to get me to a brain injury specialist. They couldn’t even get me to a neurologist. D’oh..I thanked her and giggled and said, “I’m a finalist, but politically speaking, I don’t think they can dare to let me win.”….. But it is still an honor and opportunity, which I take seriously.
“We ARE the media now” …..working like Antz, telling our friends and neighbors about #WorkComp atrocities.

Did any of you have a chance to see my piece in this blog and listen to the 3 minute audio of the dude from CNA insurance asking, among other things, “So, tell me Linda, when ARE you going to die?”. Yes, its recorded and all over social media.

That conversation might be a civil suit for which my employer, WyndhamWorldwide, may be held culpable as well.
My whole story is in the blog, Ask About Workers Comp Gravy Trains.http://askaboutworkerscompgavytrains.com/ see the blogs and then see the Resource page and the list of posts page.

I reached out to one of you recently to meet for coffee and I got a polite “can’t”… It wasn’t a social call.
Are you kidding me??! If y’all can’t bother to explore new opportunities, you’ll die whining.
Somebody else in this group said my posts may be pretty but they are useless. Fine. Block me.
WE are the Media Now. Ain’t nobody gonna help us, so we need to find new strategies.
WorkComp activism can be quite like “anti-nuke” activism……heavily infiltrated and hell bent on keeping people running in square circles, diefying paid mouth-pieces.
