My cousin’s brother is bed ridden with Muscular Dystrophy and the nursing agency (Maxim) will not push their nurses on their schedules and have call offs all the time. And when those nurses call off, Maxim does not notify right away, they wait before calling to notify. My cousin just got a new job and she was just notified of a nurse that called off 2 hours ago. She’s afraid that she is going to be fired because it’s only her second day at her job.
Is there any actions that can be done? She doesn’t have the time or patience to switch agencies because her brother needs care 24/7 and doesn’t want to live in a home.
This does not seem to be a legal problem. This is a business service problem. I think she needs to change agencies.
