Need some advice, not sure this is the right place but have nowhere else to ask.
So I have suspected severe asthma and have been shielding until last week when I went back to work for the nhs, I work in the community.
I have been very stressed going back but it was expected and I have been dealing with it. Occupational health said I am not to go into COVID positive patients or anyone showing symptoms and I am not to work with colleagues that have been in to these patients, all was fine until today, went into a patient that had all the symptoms and is waiting for her test results! I obviously didn’t know that until I was in there, my office didn’t know that either, the family didn’t tell us. I should have made my apologies and left but they needed my help and I didn’t have it in me to do that. I took every precaution but still.
So my question is where do I go from here? I don’t feel safe, I have basic ppe but my feeling is that this is going to keep happening and I dont know what to do. What would you do? Am I being silly?
I will call occupational health in the morning and make an appointment but I know they are really busy and in the meantime I will still be working.
If you got this far congrats!
