#WorkComp Surveys…. Pros or Cons?

QUESTION: What’s up with the WorkComp “surveys”…Looks like “Big Money” is behind them. What do you think?  Maybe it’s a ‘good thing’?

WE ARE THE MEDIA NOW. CARRY ON AND ON AND ON.

 Do your own research; Draw Your Own Conclusions!  Here’s more to get started…

# # #

“Share Your Workers’ Comp Story”

http://www.propublica.org/article/the-demolition-of-workers-compensation

“As part of our ongoing investigation, we invite you to tell us about your experience navigating the workers’ comp system. Have something we should look into?”

Share Your Story

# # #

ONE ANSWER:  “If you mean the reports by ProPublica and OSHA, you’ll have to ask them. I think these are done periodically to see what is going on with workers’ comp.”

“OSHA has federal dollars behind it, and ProPublica probably has to raise funds or has endowments that allow it to operate.”

Light research:

“This story was reported in partnership between NPR News Investigation’s Howard Berkes and Michael Grabell of ProPublica, an investigative journalism organization.”

 # # #

“A few hours after ProPublica and NPR issued the first in a series of reports about workers’ compensation “reforms” sweeping the country, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration coincidentally released a paper linking workplace injuries to income inequality.”

“The OSHA paper and ProPublica/NPR stories come to similar conclusions about how some injured workers have been affected by a decade of changes in workers’ compensation laws, including cutbacks in benefits and more difficulty in getting benefits.”

  # # #

Well, I filled out both surveys, and will keep you posted if anybody gets in touch….or if it’s just a black-hole for collection and round up…

Here’s my story…. sad but true…. https://askaboutworkerscompgravytrains.com/list-of-posts.

DATE OF Initial INJURY: 1/9/2012 – Repeated failures to provide medically necessary treatment. Designated primary doctor Orthopedic Surgeon–FOR A HEAD INJURY!

DIAGNOSIS: CLOSED HEAD INJURY, CONCUSSION, TBI, PTSD, ETC.  [see blogs for more details on diagnosis and denied medical care]

Thousands and thousands of dollars spent on reports and evaluations; malicious, callous and willful DEFENSE AND CARRIER disregard of repeated requests for medically necessary treatment. Repeated failures to pay TTD in 2012 and 2013, and in 2014, carrier settled with State for EDD paid disability at a severe discount, leaving injured worker to rely on Salvation Army and continuing attempts for Social Security Disability assistance, while exhausting all personal resources for life-saving treatments and devices…. more than $30K out of pocket spent, and continued refusals to participate in interactive process for possible Return To Work, and employer failures/refusals to demand #ClaimAudit…. File churning, delays, denials seem the norm, Allegations of age, gender, disability, civil rights and ADA violations by extensive network of fraudsters also.

Has anybody else been to a doctor who practices ‘functional neurology’? It’s very scientifically based… no guesswork, no drugs.

Blogging and Vlogging are other ways we can tell our stories…. Here’s a video from 2012, after some excellent ‘functional neurology’ treatments in Palm Desert, California. Of course, the defense firm threatened the doctor and told him to stop treating me, and continued to refuse to provide any medical care for the first 2.5 years, finally got some speech therapy, vision therapy, and occupational therapy via work comp for a few days, when months were requested…. For you info…. document your stories….. we’re all fighting for our lives, and those who follow…. Carry on!

Acupuncture has also been extremely helpful since August 2013, along with neuro-vision prism lenses and therapies, no thanks to the insurance carrier.

Currently, I am most grateful for the Coastline Acquired Brain Injury Program in Newport Beach…. an incredible organization with experts in the field of brains and compensatory strategies.

LEGAL STRATEGIES TO INCREASE LEGAL FEES AND #WorkComp PREMIUMS TODAY

Rule #1:  “…. so, ignore all protests that appear widely in Social Media and Industry outlets…..”

  • Got #TBI?  Lawyer Up? Patterns of Practice in the #WorkComp Industries in America?

  • Linked In Profile Strength 1 26 15
  • this person does not play well with stupid people
  • The pattern of practice in the WorkComp industries in America for treatment of traumatic brain injury appears to be:

    .

    1. Immediately terminate disability benefits upon confirmation of diagnosis of brain injury in any of the ICD-9 codes (Within 90 days.)  Delay and Deny all requests for experts and medical care, without fear or consequences until death or settlement, whichever comes first.

    2. Shift financial burden to State agencies, delay reimbursements as long as possible, and negotiate severe discounts at InjuredWorker and tax payer expenses for lien settlements.

    3. Authorize numerous expensive medical evaluations by Orthopedic Surgeons and non Brain Injury experts, and ignore/deny/non-recommend all recommendations for specialist evaluations and treatments; do not even reimburse medical miles to injured worker, adding to financial hardships created.  Discount medical fees severely, and terminate doctors (temporarily or permanently)  from MPN if they try too hard to obtain medical care authorizations.

    4. Offer premature settlement of $100,000, less attorney fees, without benefit of proper medical evaluations and immediate reasonable and necessary treatments after approximately one year of 3-D practices, Delay, Deceive, Deny…

    5. Premature settlement offer also requires injured worker to forfeit any future medical treatment, forfeit right to apply for social security disability, forfeit right to unemployment and yes, it also requires resignation from employment, without recourse. Attempt by carriers to shift burdens to ‘Affordable Care.’

    Advise clients to have absolutely NO RETURN TO WORK interactive process and shun all requests for RTW with or without accommodations.  Rely on doctor’s regular reports of TTD, and continue to fail to authorize and/all requests for medical care that would facilitate RTW.

    6. Omission of medical records with intent to deny medical care is an apparent successful common pattern of practice, involving days of Judge face-to-face time to obtain Court Order for defense to include all medical records. No consequences when patterns of deceptions and med-legal chicanery continue. Doctor reports moving dates of injury a year forward to falsely substantial first year records as evidence of ‘pre-existing injuries’ seems to be another standard practice, and when objected to, dates are corrected in expensive supplement reports, but not conclusions.

    7. Designation of an Orthopedic Surgeon as the Primary Treating Physician, with initial intent that said MD would organize specialty doctors, then all specialty requests for evaluations and treatment with specialty doctors are to be ignored or passed on to UR, without full medical evidence, for further non-authorizations.

    WC evaluating neurologists suggest analgesics for TBI, and exercise, despite vestibular disorders, and seem in the dark that vision processing is via the brain, not the eyes.

    8. In collusion with others in the legal & work comp field, when competent counsel has not been secured by injured worker, continuous file churning for profits is the pattern of practice, along with bullying, terrorism and threats not only to injured worker, but to doctors requesting appropriate medical care; some threats appear to fall into the category beyond fraud to extortion?

    Such actions appear approved by not only WC but also DIR and DA and DOJ? Adult Protective Services frowns on the practices that cause continuous harm to such injured workers, and are unafraid to speak up. Salvation Army has also proven it’s charitable contributions in California. Local Crisis Center, State Funded, are also a source of help to injured workers when WC fails.

    If #InjuredWorker refuses to be drugged for compliance with legal chicanery, Defense can offer legal opinion of incompetence and suggest designating “Conservator”.

    IF Injured Worker fights back and cannot find competent WorkComp legal counsel, and Judge refuses to allow hourly-fee-basis legal help to unrepresented worker, although the guidelines suggest it is within the Judge’s authority to do so, ignore all protests that appear widely in Social Media and Industry outlets.  

    Object to any/all InjuredWorker  offers for mediation and settlement with lawyer-ly rudeness disguised as politeness, audacity, arrogance and further bullying….for more billable hours. Read nothing, “just say no.”

    9. Full breach of all fiduciary responsibilities to insured corporation and injured worker, without consequences and without Claim Audit by Corporation.

Linda Ayres  Wyndham LinkedIn   11 8 2014  NUMERO UNO

Please let me know if I have information that can help you make a positive impact on the lives of InjuredWorkers in America and elsewhere.  

.

I bring a perspective to the table that few are willing to consider.  

Linked In 12 26 2014
 
I believe my own case is not unlike that of Romano Trust vs. Sedgwick, except that I am still alive to fight the good fight. (In addition to TBI, shoulder surgery was recommended for me, but having read about Romano case, I declined, pending alternatives to surgery.  The defense counsel suggests I’m unable to grasp the complexities of Labor Code, but the following looks pretty simple and easy to understand:
.
“Similarly, in United States Cas. Co. v. Industrial Acc. Com. (Moynahan) (1954) 122 Cal.App.2d
427, 435 [19 Cal.Comp.Cases 8], the Court said:
“Section 4600 of the Labor Code places the responsibility for medical expenses upon the employer when he has knowledge of the injury. … [ffl|] The duty imposed upon an employer who has notice of an injury to an employee is not … the passive one of reimbursement but the active one of offering aid in advance and of making whatever investigation is necessary to determine the extent of his obligation and the needs of the employee [emphasis added].”5 “
.
Then CNA objected to the shoulder as an approved ‘body part’, and an Orthopedic QME has been in the works for nearly 365 days.  They terminated benefits nearly immediately when they received diagnosis of closed head trauma/traumatic brain injury.  They got away with it, too.  Tsk tsk tsk.  Maybe not in a Federal Court, one day.

My ‘case’ is “not usual” according to many “Super Lawyers.”  How unfortunate for America’s working class that the majority of attorneys fail it’s #InjuredWorkers.
.
Injured Workers have some ideas for the legal peeps, too; we can help you ‘find the money’ that you have been unable to successfully negotiate for yourself.
.
That up-to-15% tin cup, divided up with incompetent predecessors, makes helping injured workers economically ridiculous, so I am told.  It  has to change, so you can successfully represent the previously poorly represented, without financial hardship to your firm, or giving away money to attorneys who failed to perform and protect the injured workers that trusted them and retained them.
.
Or, injured workers, in pro per, will establish vendor networks and break the monopoly the ABA seems to have on WorkComp legal issues.  Can’t we all just work together, and get along? Compatible goals would include immediate and appropriate medical care, and expedited return to work processes, and cut out all the dubious file churning.  These are lives at stake, not just “cases” and “files.”  BE HUMAN!

I suspect that WyndhamWorldwide may be looking for new #WorkComp insurance carrier and defense firms in the foreseeable future.  

.
The CNA handling of my case has been very poor for nearly 3 years.  The legal counsel has been extremely sloppy, imho.  The timeshare industry on the whole is probably nearly as profitable as the insurance industries, so that could be a business opportunity in progress.  
wc doc can you see the problem
 
I would like to see every InjuredWorker provided with a copy of THE ART OF WAR by SunTzu to study during any work related recovery and rehabilitation.  It could minimize casualties.  
SunTzu images
 

It’s been brought to my attention that it is somewhat of an industry standard to terminate benefits upon diagnosis of a “brain injury” or any significant or potentially catastrophic injury.

.

My diagnosis was February 2012, repeatedly reiterated by more than 30 medical evaluations that did not result in treatments.
.
For some reason, people in WorkComp often confuse an evaluation and recommendation for treatment with actual treatment, even though the costs are often higher for reports. My benefits were terminated in April 2012, what a coincidence. Court orders, intervention by Adult Protective Services, local politicians, and local Crisis Center have free up funds, periodically.  It is what could be considered to be a ‘low grade financial terrorism’ and abuse.
.
Nearly $30,000 in personal funds has been spent to stay alive and get treatment. Defense apparently has no intentions to reimburse, not even reimbursement of miles to “primary treating doctors” [a PTP is State designated Orthopedic Surgeon to be seen every 45 days to request medical care with brain specialists that is consistently denied by doctor and lawyers without expertise in TBI.] Fortunately, the Salvation Army intervened so that I would have have heat and lights last year. Oh my.  
.
Social Security Disability has been denied twice, as the reviewers do not deem full cognitive abilities are required to sell ‘timeshare’….even if speech is dysfluent, short-term memory severely impaired, compounded by grave disorganization and attention deficits, easily lost to and from home and moreso to and from new places, to name a few cognitive challenges. 
.
SSDI because it’s inconvenient for an insurance carrier to act and provide coverage in accordance with policy terms? Does the State Controller know? How about the Taxpayers? Governor? Audit time? 
.
Cost shifting from a paid WorkComp Insurance Policy to the State seems…. rather odd, doesn’t it?  California seems to reward non-payment of benefits to injured workers by insurance carriers in thousands of dollars per incident.  Is there sufficient money in State coffers to put injured workers on social services lines? 
 .
It has taken Court Orders and Judge time to get basic pain relief such as chiropractic and acupuncture, with total disregard to MTUS and ACOEM and common sense guidelines for immediate interdisciplinary treatment. Is that really the best use of Court time???  It took 15 months for physical therapy authorization of 6 sessions.  One “independent”  industry doctor stated that since the injured worker (me) didn’t get brain injury care in the first two years, and being “over 35″….. no treatment would be recommended?  He teaches neurology at UCLA. God help the next generations!

.

Is that an EEOC direct hit?  1. Gender 2. Age. 3. Disability.   :/

 .
At one point, the carrier called from Chicago to ask, among other things, in light of non-treatment for nearly 3 years, “…when ARE you going to die?”   More recently, defense counsel suggested a ‘court appointed conservator’ since there is such non-acceptance to torture delivered via WorkComp systems and procedures.  #DomesticTortureReports-2015 seem necessary and a logical next step.
.
Since actual numbers of TBI victims reach well into the many millions, it is easier to see how such a risk management strategy of fast-and-potentially-lethal denials could develop as a cost-savings remedy for carriers.
.

What is your experience or policy regarding treatment for brain injuries? Is it more than CNA’s 3-year plan of a few chiropractic, a couple of acupuncture, and a couple of clinical psychology visits, and when pressed, 16 days in the third year to include speech therapy, occupational therapy, and non-specific physical therapy?

.

Does return to work ever factor in for closed head trauma, in your experience, or is that age and gender sensitive also?

Maybe it was his comments that #WorkComp doctor’s don’t think there’s much injury (despite substantial medical evidence!), even though I’ve been off work nearly 1,000 days…. you know, those doctors who changed the dates of injury to 2013, and used 2012 reports to allege ‘pre-existing’ traumatic brain injury and related symptoms, or their recommendations for ‘over the counter analgesics’ as treatment, or get this one, their neurologist doesn’t believe anybody over the age of 35 is suitable for brain injury rehabilitation, or that if one can see, there’s no occipital lobe damage, and if one can talk, there’s no …which lobe, temporal or frontal… AND LET’S TALK ABOUT LOSS OF EXECUTIVE FUNCTION.

Got a #Brain? Got injured on the Job?

#InjuredWorkersUnited…SILENT NO MORE

#WorkComp #QME #Wyndham #CNA #GRANCELL

… Yesterday I had to attend another WorkComp Orthopedic Evaluation, for the Traumatic Brain Injury #TBI of 1/9/12….. still waiting for medical care for 2 years, 6 months, several days. I was hoping that doctor knew that the ‘brain’ is a body part in the ‘head’….so few #workcomp peeps know that. Shameful. But, I didn’t get to see the doctor. Here’s why.

Do YOU have a similar story?   Tell it!  BE SILENT NO MORE!

Oh My! I gotta watch Defense Against the Psychopaths again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd6P1Ue2aGg
I may need to enroll in a Victim/Witness Protection Program.

psychopaths in power know  do you

Mr. Reubens (new hot shot defense counsel) is verrrrrrrrrrry polite, you know the kind? I asked him if he wanted to enter mediation, and his chilling response was, imho, equivalent to:

“Lady, F**ck off and die, you can’t make us provide medical care, even when it is authorized by UR. You can’t make us reimburse you for the more than $25,300.00 in medical care and miles you have spent trying to save your life, to doctors we have sent you to, or to those other doctors have referred you to. Maximum allowable expense for an injured worker’s life is $100,000, and we’ve already paid that out for all the medical reports we have repeatedly ignored.. Mr. Grancell blocked your emails from our server; I may have to do the same.”

 

PEREZ  LABOR DEPARTMENT 2014

Mr. Reubens is probably gonna be mighty mad at me, and it’s not my fault! It’s not my fault he doesn’t read. He did the same thing when I submitted new requests for medical reimbursements. I sent him past due requests going back to 2012, and new ones through June 2014. He says they don’t have to pay of them. He’s wrong, but, he is one of those guys who seems to think he’s right, even when he is wrong. Tsk. You know the kind. I think he must have buddies at the #LivermoreLab up in North California.

Grancell subjects Wyndham repeatedly to some pretty hefty fines for failure to reimburse miles to see a doctor every 45 days for a ‘meet and greet’.. and refusals for co-pays from 2012 for CIGNA insurance when I was forced to use my employee insurance because Wyndham’s people told me to “go to any doctor that takes Workers Compensation insurance” and gave me a piece of paper with no insurance information on it, and expected me to … I dunno what. D’oh. Then they said I had no right to do as I was instructed to do. D’oh!

Several weeks ago, Defense firm (Grancell) sent a letter reminding about it and if I wasn’t going, advise 11 days before so nobody gets charged. So, per their instructions, I cancelled it and told Defense. I sent it with a proof of service, since if they don’t get a signed proof of service, they lie and say they didn’t get things. They do so…even with proof of service. NO WIN/NO WIN

A few weeks later, Mr. Reubens sends me an email, “Ms. Ayres, may I ask, are you planning to attend the Orthopedic QME on 7/18/14 at 3:30 pm….”….

I AM

I sent him a polite 4+ page response reminding that I cancelled it, and why. (Fraud, Omisssion of Records, ADA violations at WCAB-Riverside, failure to reimburse medical miles and expenses amounting to more than $25, 300)… and that as I told the Judge, till I find a government agency willing and able to address the fraud (WCAB does not hear fraud complaints)…that I was unwilling to attend another orthopedic evaluation with the only intent being to support a fraudulent denial of medical care.

Ms. Mall stated to the doctor, among other falsehoods, that nobody ever said my right shoulder was messed up, ignoring the fact that she and Daniel Elliott, CNA Adjuster, simply ignored all requests for further evaluations, physical therapy, MRI’s etc, until mid-2013, and when the reports came back ‘torn rotator cuff; surgery required’ then Ms. Mall told the doctors to stop calling it an industrial injury, or else.

wc CLAIM DENIED
On her behalf, it must be said that she is a very creative writer and skewer of truth, with plausible deniability. She told the Judge they could not provide any Brain Injury Care till I had another orthopedic evaluation. Apparently, more than one Judge has believed such lies, without medical evidence etc. D’oh.

Ms. Mall has a terrible memory an even worse organization skills, her cut and paste skills need honing, and she appears to be truth-challenged, and must have forgotten that I had a copy of the “MSA” from Crowe Paradis, requested by Grancell, of November 2012, wherein she and claimant attorney #2 attempted to coerce a premature settlement without full medical knowledge of the extent of the injuries. It was just before XMAS, and counsel then representing the injured worker seemed to be drooling for Xmas money. D’oh!

WC ADA

……….Oh….. Ooops…. a little tangent….back to the aborted #WorkComp SS Eval:

So, then Mr. Reubens has his underling sonderkommando write a request for an Order to Compel Attendance at SS Doctor’s office for the PQME/Orthopedic, attaches my complaints, and the WC Judge Orders me to attend. The Judge didn’t find a problem with the illegal termination of TTD benefits, the necessity to file for SOCIAL SERVICES AND GENERAL RELIEF AND FOOD STAMPS, nor did the Judge find a problem that even for that event, Defense failed to provide advanced payment for medical miles. WHAT WAS THAT JUDGE SMOKING THAT DAY?? D’oh!

Well, I ain’t no criminal, so, the Judge says I gotta go, so off I went. A Marine was going to go with me, for safety, but that didn’t work out. So I went alone. The Court had ordered me to appear at an address that did not exist. That was dilemma regarding the letter of the law. :}

change the earth

I found the place. A Chiropractor’s office, I had to park in dirt lot, and the hot shot Orthopedic Surgeon was late…and just uses the offices, apparently sort of a SS temp holding center, it seemed. They were polite. When the doctor’s assistant arrived around 4 (my appointment was 3:30, I arrived at 3:17, even though I got lost)….

There was a Latino guy with a left shoulder injury (like my right shoulder injury) with a 4 pm appointment waiting for the same doctor. They asked if I was “the interpreter”…. D’oh!

Yeah, I told the doctor’s assistant I have a head injury, untreated for 2.5 years, and the Judge Ordered me to show up at this appointment. He was very nice and said it had been cancelled. I said, “yeah, I know, but I figured they reinstated it by Court Order….guess not.

As to being the ‘Interpreter’…. the Latino guy and I did talk, and I told him they are out to kill us, anybody over 35 is not entitled to medical treatment, but the doctors make the big bucks. He said he is 39, now on food stamps, and in the financial terrorism stage… He has a lawyer. I told him I dismissed 4 lawyers who did more harm than good…. yep…

I emailed the Defense lawyer the details while I was sitting in the office, waiting for who knows what, and asked him how long he wanted me to wait there. He didn’t write back. I wonder why.

Oh….maybe he is reading the 300 pages of omitted medical records and fraud complaints I sent Wednesday, to bring him up to date. His little underling sonderkommando has exposed his firm, and my employer, to some serious fraud complaints…It’s a felony, but, as we know, there’s no law enforcement…..

InjuredWorkersUnited SILENT NO MORE

Hooray! #Wyndham #RTW Return To Work Prospects for #TBI Survivor

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: Looks like I might get released to return to work soon!  Hoooray! Persistence Pays off! 

.
Hey, Imagine this! It’s summer time, people are thinking about vacations to escape from their lives and you own a timeshare, any time share. Nawww, for this example, let’s say you are a #Wyndham owner.
.
I don’t remember all the different levels of ownership (i have been off work for nearly 1,000 days; their doctors call it a ‘headache’ but real doctors call it a variety of themes on CLOSED HEAD INJURY, TBI, Concussion, Post Traumatic Concussion Post Traumatic Brain Injury Syndrome (PTBIS), but I do remember a goal for all salespeople is to get all qualified owners to “Platinum”….. Strategies include, with the help of “the closers”, to close ‘by any means necessary’…..
.
(Some of their doctors says it’s just a headache combined with age and poor anger management skills and a consistent “GAF” of 55-60…D’oh! )
.
So, you arrive at the sales office, anywhere, Big Bear, Indio, Sedona, Las Vegas Honolulu, Lahaina, Rome, Chicago, New York, your local resort area, wherever…. for your “FREE GIFT” in exchange for 45 minutes of your time.
.
Your sales agent does a stellar job of showing you how another investment of thousands and thousands of dollars will enhance your vacations and ensure fabulous vacations for you, your kids and your friends…for generations.
.
You politely decline the offer to upgrade.
.
The salesperson’s demeanor drops. Tears fill her eyes. She starts swearing at you, then sits on the floor and sobs hysterically, saying, “OMG, this is soooo goood for you. HOW CAN YOU SAY NOW” or words to that effect. You calmly say, “We’re leaving now, we want our gift. Good luck to you.”
.
And the sales agent, sobbing, says, ‘BUT THE DOCTORS SAID MY HEADACHES WOULD GO AWAY IF I TOOK ANALGESICS, AND IN DON’T HAVE A HEADACHE RIGHT NOW, AND THEY SAID MY CORRECTED VISION IS 20/20 SO THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH ME. THIS IS A GOOD UPGRADE FOR YOU, WHY WON’T YOU BUY IT?!!! LET ME GET THE CLOSER, I MEAN, LET ME GET THE MANAGER, HE MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET YOU TO UPGRADE….. SIT THERE, WE’RE NOT DONE, WE HAVE 20 MORE MINUTES OR YOU GET NO GIFT. YOU’RE FREE TO GO, WITHOUT A GIFT. YOUR CHOICE. WHAT WILL IT BE………….!!!!!!
.
You look at one another and quietly sit, waiting for ‘the closer’ with the big hammer.hammer this is not a drillTO BE CONTINUED……~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Awww, that wasn’t a real story, but it could be since the #TBI. The Defense Counsel mentioned that I have a remarkable ‘propensity for writing’ and he received approximately 4 boxes of legal material, and most of it was mail and emails from me. He insinuated he would not be reading it.He put our communications on a twice-a-month maximum, even though I assured him I don’t want no lawyer-pen-pal and that I just want medically necessary medical treatments for closed head injury of 1/9/12 (and consequent second impact injuries of 2/4/12 along with related orthopedic injuries; treatment authorization withheld for all since date of injury, and gross negligence and bad faith actions have been the norm.)

He also advised me to have no contact with the Insurance Adjuster nor my Employer, #WyndhamWorldwide.

Geeeez, I’m representing myself and if I was a real attorney, I think his request would be …… wrong. Whatever.

He said if I did communicate with them, he has instructed them to not respond. HOW ON EARTH AM I SUPPOSED TO GET APPROVED FOR RETURN TO WORK. NO DOCTORS WILL BE RESPONSIBLE TO RELEASE ME, AND I AM NOW NOT ‘ALLOWED’ TO CONTACT MY EMPLOYER TO ORGANIZE ACCOMMODATION REQUESTS AND A RETURN TO WORK DATE?

under the bus

Their doctors say there is nothing wrong with me, just an occasional headache, age, poor anger management when bullied and terrorized, and vision is corrected to 20/20 with therapeutic lenses prescribed, with complete report, by a Neuro-Optometrist. (that they refused to pay for, too! and have no knowledge of how vision is with the brain, not the eyes, d’oh! Neurologists are a goofy crowd, arent’ they…. If you get a brain injury, see a neuro-optometrist as soon as possible…by any means necessary…along with an acupuncturist….and any other ‘experts’ you can find…THE BRAIN IS A NEW FRONTIER….. GIDDYE UP)

So, yesterday I interviewed yet another attorney. I had an appointment with a guy attorney, and when I got there, they said I would meet with some lady.  Tsk. My eyes tear up, and off I went, sobbing an unable to talk. I said, “But I was referred to Mr. ___. Who is this lady? Is she an attorney? I just drove 90 minutes to get here, and they said we could do it over the phone, but I have had such bad experiences with attorneys, I wanted to look him in the eye before considering releasing my case to him or his staff”….sobbing commences….. and the very nice receptionist brought a box of tissues.

It was a ‘casual day’ for the attorney, but he came out to meet me, and chat a few minutes, and assured me that his colleague would be a powerful ally, if they took my case. I stopped crying, met the other attorney, and found her to be very helpful, kind, knowledgeable and street wise. They declined to help; not because there’s no case, but because it’s so convoluted and I know it better than anybody, so they encouraged me to continue to represent myself. D’oh. Oh well. She also suggested that I am far better off than most people who come to their offices. THAT’S A BUMMER, BECAUSE A HIGH IQ TBI SURVIVOR APPEARS ‘NORMAL’ (at times! ;D ) but it’s like people can’t see the neurons mis-firing, so they falsely allege there is ‘no immediate danger’.

FURTHERMORE….. Swearing and Emotional Outbursts….seem to be a common occurrence for for some #TBI Survivors. Here’s a real story:

In March, in meeting yet another ‘head doctor’…. I had a 2 pm meeting. Even to get around in towns I know, I need to fully prepare. I print a google map, and use GPS, give myself an extra hour to get somewhere, I call it the ‘lost factor’ and I cross my fingers. I arrive at 1:45. I park and find the right building in the complex. I find the suite number. There are painters everywhere. THE DOOOR IS LOCKED. Fighting panic, I calmly call the doctor’s office to confirm date, time, location (sometimes I get those way wrong!)…. I GET VOICE MAIL. Fighting panic, I ask a painter for help. “Could you, please, knock on the door louder? They have to be there. I have a 2pm appointment!” while fighting back tears. The kind painter smiles, knocks and says, “There was someone here earlier, maybe they will be right back.”

NAIDW TBI AWARENESS

TEARS FILLED MY EYES. I SLUMPED TO THE FLOOR AND WITH BACK UP AGAINST THE WALL, SOBBED HYSTERICALLY.  (This is becoming a pattern; I’m told they ‘have a drug for it’…. D’oh!!!) A Property-Management-Looking Lady walks by with a Painter and I stop them and say, “DO YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY NUMBER FOR THE DOCTOR?” With raised eyebrows, looking at me sobbing on the floor, she calmly says, ‘Is there an emergency?’ I said “YES. I HAVE A 2 PM APPOINTMENT AND IT’S AFTER 2 PM AND THE DOOR IS LOCKED”…..Sobbing…..waiting for a response. She said, “I may have a number in the office, I’ll be right back.”

SO, THEN ALONG COMES ANOTHER LADY, and looks at me sitting on the floor, sobbing hysterically. It’s the doctor. She says, “The door was unlocked, I had to go out for a moment.” Still sobbing, I said, “NO IT ISN’T UNLOCKED. THE PAINTER EVEN TRIED BOTH DOORS.” Apparently, the earlier patient locked it on his way out. I GOT UP OFF THE FLOOR, WALKED INTO HER OFFICE, AND WE PROCEEDED WITH THE FIRST VISIT, AS IF NOTHING WEIRD HAD JUST HAPPENED.

HALF-WAY THROUGH SHE SAID, ‘You know, that little event outside is NOT UNCOMMON for someone with a head injury.’ I gasped and said, “OMG, it happens more and more often. Last time I was at Court, it was heinous with the fraud and bullshit and when I got outside the Court building, I found a bench and sobbed hysterically, as if my life was over. They even called Security to see if I was ok. Then, the nice Judge walked by, a little later, as I was trying to get to my car, and all my files had spilled out of the cart on the steps to the parking area. He kindly helped me to the car and told me not to drive until I was more composed…It was a 2 hour drive ahead. So yeah, the Judge has seen my meltdowns, in and out of Court!

#############

BUT, THE #WYNDHAM, #GRANCEL#CNA doctors say I’m just fine, so by logical deduction, that would lead me to believe I’m about ready to be returned to work.

The Head Doctor has been out of the country…. and in April, she indicated I had about a 6 month window to get medical treatment, or this is as good as it gets.
TIC TOC THANKS #WYNDHAM. LET’S GET THAT RETURN TO WORK PROGRAM IN MOTION, AND WE’LL SEE IF I NEED A CRYING ROOM OR SOMEPLACE ‘SAFE’ AS AN ADA ACCOMMODATION.

Or, as previously mentioned, create a new position so I can help your HR Departments ensure that the horrors I have been subjected to by the gross negligence of your staff and the terrorists activities of your agents happen to no other American Workers. Who knows, maybe this horrible series of events can encourage #Wyndham TO LEAD THE WAY IN LEGITIMATE HANDLING OF WORK COMP INJURIES. IT WILL COST LESS IN THE LONG RUN…. REMEMBER REMEMBER….SEVERAL DOCTORS HAD ADVISED THAT …WITH MEDICALLY NECESSARY TREATMENTS…I MIGHT HAVE RETURNED TO WORK IN 2012.

The Orthopedic Doctor’s report of June 6, 2014 has been delayed, and his office said, “OUR HANDS ARE TIED. THIS IS AN ORTHOPEDIC OFFICE AND YOU NEED A BRAIN DOCTOR.” Quietly, I said, “I know they have threatened to take your off their referral list if you continue to ATTEMPT to get medically necessary treatment for my well diagnosed brain injuries. I requested repeatedly a brain specialists, and the Defense, in collusion with the WorkComp Information Officer, insisted that I see your doctor, Orthopedic Surgeon, and that HE WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ORGANIZING MEDICALLY NECESSARY REFERRALS AND TREATMENT BY SPECIALISTS. IF YOU COULDN’T DO THAT, YOU SHOULD HAVE DECLINED IN FEBRUARY 2013, NOT NOW, AFTER MONTHS AND MONTHS OF FAILURES TO GET MEDICAL CARE FOR ME. YOU TELL THE DOCTOR HIS REPORT IS NEEDED AS I AM STILL FIGHTING FRAUDULENT DENIALS OF MEDICAL CARE, AND HIS LAST REPORT WAS OMITTED FROM THE CURRENT REQUEST BY THE ADJUSTER AS WELL. THE DOCTOR KNOWS WHAT TIME IT IS. TELL HIM WHAT’S HAPPENING NOW.

I’M HANGING UP NOW, AS I AM BEGINNING TO LOSE MY TEMPER. WE SPOKE FRIDAY, AND NOW IT’S WEDNESDAY. WHERE’S THE REPORT? IT WAS DUE WEEKS AGO.

ASK ABOUT WORKERS COMP GRAVY TRAINS NOW…..SAD BUT TRUE:
