While, Ms Brenda – you can see I have been sending the information this hospital needed but they keep using the excuse that we are in the middle of changes, Your Director are in Cleveland,[VA], your supervisor is to find you a non-carpeted room so you can work a Full levels.

Ms. This all STOP do to the inability for them to NOT wear perfumes /colognes/ and lotions with smells.

The doctors informed HR [E. Quesentberry] this and he in returned passed it on to Ava Pamela Womack, Chief, and Jeffery Robert Arcaro, Assist Chief. Yes, they chose a room on the first floor, the women was wear perfume so strong you would have believed she was a homeless person, trying to cover up non showering.

VA Healthcare System

If submitting everything to the corrected division, the doctors and myself are still waiting for a vent report, with swabbing.

I understand by law Human Resource took over my medical reports do to gossip amounts the medical staffing in employee health, so many have left.

Human Resources, has all the documentation they need, and the doctors keep sending, but I am still being use as the Petri Dash until this hospital can fix things.

2016, supervisor hurt my wrist with door

2017, chief ava Pamela Womack a provide me going to the ER, [ Reports disappeared], but I made them [ER] give copies before leaving locations.

2007, I was placed underneath the Accommodation Program do to I becoming more and more ill due to carpets /service dogs / colognes & perfumes.

The hospital safe and environmental team, found the location of CCU, because it gives me a bathroom at the nursing station, and provided wonderful skills for me to use, while staying healthy, and calling in less on sick leave.


The executive nurse at the time, assisted in measure before retirement but the new people were not told therefore. Issues keep coming up, [ we don’t know anything about this/ HR didn’t tell use} and around an around.

Again, as before, for additional updates and information of torture.
