I had a nursing student steal my stethoscope in early October. I left it on my cart in my patients room. My patient reported to me that the nursing student took it. I asked her and she denied it. I didnt see it, i should not have left it down, so I dropped it. I told the instructor and considered it gone forever. It was an unusual color and has my name engraved on it. Well, just got a call from the school that they have it, she is being kicked out of the nursing program
and threatening to sue. They have a number if complaints with her,and apparently they have had my stethoscope since October when they found her sing it at clinical. Instead of telling me, they kept it as they were " building a case" against her. She was caught and arrested for stealing cell phones from patients.So they want me to file a police report and create a paper trail. I don't want any part of it. I feel like they were dishonest with me and now trying to make me the fall guy. I just don't want any part o f it. What would you do?
