I was at work a couple of nights ago and I overheard another nurse talking about something that happened a few years back, she had mentioned she had to do remedial education and anger management, so being curious about it I looked her up, and it shows her license has been suspended in another state in 2004. She was indicted w/ abuse/neglect charges. Im just curious how she is still practicing? Just doesnt seem right.
No offense, but what doesn't "seem right" is the fact that you've taken it upon yourself to investigate a colleague when your state BON has probably already decided that whatever it was that she did, professional corrections were since made and that she is now deemed safe and ready for continued practice. IMHO, one needs to trust their Board of Nursing; they're not all so stupid to the point that they have to rely solely on nursing gossip before they launch investigations to find out about bad nurses. Moreover, if the nurse you're so interested in genuinely had something to hide, I don't think that she would be talking about it so freely that anyone could easily eavesdrop and have their interest piqued, like your's
obviously was. At any rate, I sincerely hope that whatever "curiosity" you had has since been fully satisfied.
As for the BON disciplinary action definitions:
temporary loss of license, can be lifted once BON is satisfied
conditions placed on license (eg. not handling narcotics)
permanent loss of license
