Can my employer force me to ignor my doctor's orders?

Question Details: Due to health reasons, my doctor gave me written orders that I am not allowed to work "on-call" at my job. This is the second time she has done this, the first time my employer forced me to start taking "on-call" again. Immediately my health again deteriorated. I returned to the doctor who wasn't happy that I had ignored her orders and again gave me strict written orders of no on-call. My job has several other nurses who can do "on call" and is pressuring me to ignore my doctor's orders.
