I work in the medical field as a respiratory therapist. Recently I attended a “Code Blue” (cardiac arrest) and there were 14 people in the room shouting, alarms going off and the patient’s television was on.
2 days later it was brought to my attention by HR that several of the nurses felt I wasn’t listening. My supervisor and many of the staff are aware of my hearing loss for which I am wearing hearing aids (Starkey Livio 2000). I feel like I am being groomed for termination.
I’m wondering what the ADA says about the employer making “reasonable accommodations” in a case like this.
I’m considering consulting with an attorney who specializes in disability law.
