This is my very first time posting on the forum. I am a diabetic college student going to school for nursing.
I was recently at a clinical site (at a mental hospital) where I was taking my blood sugar and administering insulin in the staff break room. I was approached by my instructor and was told that I needed to clean the table, wash my hands, and that I can only do my diabetes care in restrooms instead of "public spaces" because it is an infection risk.
According to my instructor, it is the hospital's policy. I couldn't help but feel my rights were being taken away/ this picture wasn't right. I didn't think the employer, in this case, is allowed to tell the person protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act where they are allowed to complete their care.
