    was yours to do with an anonymous complaint? I heard the board only has 2 years to take action on a complaint. I actually told them whom I felt made the complaint. I wonder if they would have tried to make contact with them. Im sick over this.

    Mine was d/t complaint that was not anonymous. I knew who and why. I had the right to know exactly what the complainer said, the investigator read the person's statement to me. I don't know how anonymous complaints work. I imagine there'd be less credibility to them.

    I would be a mess too. In fact about a year and a half ago. I was new to home health I took labs from a patient of another nurse. Results came in the next day, Hemoglobin was 7.2. Lab company did not call me or the MD for a critical lab. Once I saw the lab I called the MD asked his receptionist if they received the lab but did not tell them the value. Of course it was a Friday. Monday AM wife called and was upset because when he went to the MD office on Monday and the MD then read the lab sent him right to ER for transfusion. MD called my office and yelled at my boss. Why was he not told on friday of the value. Patient cancelled all services. She also wrote a nasty evaluation of our company. I do not think she called the BON but she might have. I do have malpractice insurance. Good luck with your situation.
