I am a residential counselor at a group home. I do the overnights which is fine by me. Since becoming pregnant a lot of incidents have been happening that it honestly makes me feel like they are trying to get me to quit or plotting on me to lose my baby. I did the normal thing by informing them that was was pregnant because there is a physical aspect of my job where you have to restrain the kids. I was asked to clean the bathroom with a industrial chemical that I didn't believe was healthy for a pregnant women to inhale. I told the supervisor and she wrote me up for refusing the chore although I did another chore instead. I asked for the director to pull the write up and had to get a dr's note to do so which states I can't use industrial chemicals and to me that should be common sense. Not to mention one of the bathrooms in the house have mold in it and terrible ventilation. the directer pulled it and gave it to me
Fast forward to last night. They had not salted the drive way and the kitchen and the house were the kids stay are two different buildings. I told the supervisor I don't feel safe walking across the unsalted black ice and she pretty much had a issue with that so I went back and forth twice. Once to set up for breakfast and one to get one of the kids orange juice because they are a diabetic and had to get their sugar up. So some kids stay back so you have to do breakfast order. I did not feel safe carrying a tray of food over still unsalted black ice being seventeen weeks pregnant because if I fall. I have to go to the hospital and if I lose my baby over a fall then what could they have said to me besides I am sorry. So for refusing to go across the ice with a tray of food I was written up again. Now in my mind common sense says. Dont send the pregnant women over black ice with a tray full of food and expect her to balance her self and the food. Then get mad and write her up.
I have again gne to the director and emailed,text and left a message on their phone. I feel like is there something further I should do. I have already documented both these incidents incase I ever have to take it to Headquarters HR.
I am thinking is this place being unsafe and not caring about the condition I am in?
