Q. One of our employees, who has diabetes, is on the road a lot tending to patients in their homes. We’ve heard that she is having trouble seeing patient charts and difficulty pricking patients’ fingers for tests. What should we do?
A. You should meet with the employee and tell her what you have heard. You should ask her whether she needs any assistance to do her job.
You can also ask her to see her doctor and have the doctor assess whether she is able to perform the essential functions of her job and whether she needs any reasonable accommodation to do so. You should let the doctor know what others have reported and provide him or her with the employee’s job description.
