I had a good answer for a question about disability checks, but? Topic: What is case management for nurses

Question: When I finished answering it, it had been deleted. this was my answer Well, I think that is pretty harsh. Having done case management for workers comp, I found the greater percent of those collecting workers comp for more than a few months were milking the system. That is not to say there certainly people who have a serious work injury that certainly do deserve everything they get and more. I applied for disability when I was 59, not a work injury,but at the time i had no insurance and could not afford a new prosthesis. To walk much with the one I had caused my residual limb to breakdown and that is a serious problem. I was denied and had to jump through hoops to demonstrate this compromised my ability to do my usual and customary job. I was finally granted the disability which a year later just became my social security check at age 62. Needless to say the system is flawed and people with little medical knowledge are making decisions. One of my dockworkers who had sustained a broken neck that rendered him a permanent quadriplegic also had a big fight to get the rightful disability checks he was entitled to receive. Why was the question deleted? I understand your answer, but you are mistaken. I was a professional Registered Nurse and my usual and customary job required mobility. To do the other jobs in Nursing I was skilled at also required mobility which I did quite well for 20 years as an amputee. I worked in spinalcord rehab, a very physical and demanding job. An ill fitting prostheses can cause medical problems even to the point of requiring stump revision. This is a major medical procedure. Thanks for the answers, especially the ones from the knowledgable people. I understand what you say, JD, and I'm sure you pushed yourself to a limit that caused you permanent damage. I'm so glad for your happy life now. Sadly many people behind the desks with the power to deny do not have the knowledge to make truly informed decisions. For workers comp, that is where the case manager is suppose to separate the wheat from the chaff. Unfortunately it often does not work that way. Many will continue a case as long as they are able to bill for visits and progress reports.

A doctor who worked as a SS adviser told me once that he had been asked to access a patient for possible disability. The person had such severe problems they were in a complete vegetative state. Being in a fetal ball is certainly a legitimate issue. Yet, against their own doctors advice, SS denied him!!! Absurd. The system accepts the fakers and denies people with real issues.

June - getting disability is insane, and I applaud you for sticking with a profession as demanding as nursing. I sometimes wonder if the first (and second ) denials are simply rubber stamps, rather than a serious attempt to look at the people who have genuine needs. Instead of approving disability for quads (and amputees who have worked, and worked hard, until they could no longer do so), it seems as though such are automatically denied right along with the claims that aren't as legitimate (or just aren't legitimate.)

Just mean really doesn't like you does she. Not much anyone else either. We both know that we can never get the public to see the leg strain of Pt. care. I have gone home with my knees so swollen up I couldn't walk straight. Now I can't walk. I have never seen anyone administer care to the sick and injured from a wheelchair and I know I couldn't do my job from one. CPR would be over quick with my legs. I can't imagine a 12hr shift on a wooden leg. That thing must weigh a ton at the end of a shift. At your best age. You got robbed. While some bike riding mostly drunken bum with back pain gets your check.

Temperance Originally Answered: Question about WIC program checks?
All major grocery stores should accept WIC. The ones that do will have some kind of sign posted on or around their door. Wal-mart definitely accepts them, but I don't know what other stores you would have in AZ... You have to separate the WIC stuff from the rest of your stuff and pay separately. Before the cashier starts to ring up the WIC stuff, make sure you tell him/her that it is WIC because they need to match your ID number to the number on the check and keep track as they ring to make sure you are only getting approved items. When they finish ringing the stuff up, they will write the amount on the check, and you will have to sign it. Then, they'll ring up whatever you are paying for yourself. I'm surprised they didn't make you watch a video about it at the WIC office. My husband and I both had to watch a video explaining how WIC works....
