What can I do if I was written up for calling in due to a work-related injury?

Question Details: My employer wrote me up for calling in from work for 2 days after I injured my shoulder on the job.I went to their occupational health doctor the following morning after my shift on the hospital unit and was immediately put on workers comp light duty? Due to pain, I called in the following 2 days and was on light duty from the end of February to the second to last week of April. Just recently after a meeting with the nurse manager, I found out that the 2 days I called in due to the work-related injury counted against me as a write-up for call-ins. Is this illegal to have a write-up for a work-related injury while officially placed on workers comp? The hospital's call-in policy states that you can only call out with proof of having the flu.
