    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

i didnt know how to title this one so forgive me if its incorrect.....i just went to renew my trazodone online and saw that my new pcp did not renew the rx when i was in about a month ago. shes new and seemed a bit intimidated so i am gonna give her the benefit of the doubt. but heres the issue folks....i called last week to get a consult to voc rehab. since she is with the womens center, thats where i called. she is covering for another doc in oef/oif part of the vamc so i was transferred there. they put me thru to her nurse so i leave a msg like a good lil' airman. the nurse calls me back chewin my ass like a di in bootcamp! she sd i should call the womens center. god forbid this rn actually does some ppwk for the dr she's working with! i explain to her that i did call, etc. she basically hung up on me spouting she will clear it up. soooooooooo, now i am in desperate need of my trazodone being refilled and i dont want to take the chance of pissin in this rn's cheerios and she nix's my rx. not to mention i was told over and over not to go cold turkey off this stuff. and, honestly, i need the little 2-3 hrs of sleep it gives me. now my anxiety is up cuz after 2 more nites, im out! no more sleep for me unless i can get it refilled. anyone have any similar dealings like this? how can u get it refilled without going thru nurse wratchet? guess my honeymoon with the va is over, huh? <_<

clw, you crack me up! <_<

wratchet and all the rest exist to serve us; you are her General. Maybe she was just having a bad day, but I'd call back and tell them you're dangerously short on meds.

I don't know how close you are to the VA if picking them up at the pharmacy becomes the only way to get them in time. Don't yield until you get the results you're looking for, sister!

lol - well, if i can make one person laugh a day - ive done good <_<

i called the womens center this a.m. and explained the situation and the chewin i got last week courtesy of nurse wratchet. they sd it would certainly be passed on to her superior cuz she called then and chewed them out, too. then they put me thru to another rn who was more than happy to help me and was very pleasant, too. but, the womens center sd i was correct to be calling my pcp at her current location. i hope i dont have to go thru that crap again! and i certainly hope i dont require any shots from nurse wratchet any time soon!! but for now, i will take my one small triumph and be content :rolleyes:

What shes doing to you is an ethical violation and against your "patients rights".

You can file a complaint against her to go into her records through the "patient advocate".

This may(?)slow down her attitude.

It's not likely it will be your last experience like this. If you receive care through any VAMC your going to see this occasionally. It gives all the good nurses a black eye. And there are many.

Health care providers including nurses have to be medically licensed. You can also file a complaint in the state she is licensed in.

Never let the treatment you received slide. These people must be weeded out of our care system.

You deserve far better treatment than this.

Thank you for your service to this nation!

good point, allan. never thought of it like that. thx for pointing that out! hopefully, i wont have any more issues like that. i always try to be courteous and go to the appropriate people so i dont waste anyone's time. i know i dont like my time wasted. the womens center in mphs is pretty good at making sure us women vets r treated with respect from all depts.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
