I can't believe they made NO investigation! (Actually I can, and that's scary.) However, that is SHAMEFUL! They needed at least to look for corroborating evidence of the complaint. When there is a complaint against a nursing home in my state, the surveyors send out someone to investigate the complaint before any more is done. One would think the BON would at least take as much care. Apparently not. I ALWAYS recommend carrying your own malpractice insurance - I want someone whose sole focus is defending me.
I don't mind the OP (information-seeking) as much as I mind a non-nurse giving nursing advice (posing as a nurse.) In my state that is criminally actionable (a non-nurse posing as a nurse.)

"Who cares about someone's feelings when LIVES are on the line? The pursuit of organ donation should be aggressive and persistent. We owe that much to those who are dying and to the families to know what their feelings may cost."
Absolutely wrong. Each person has rights, and your rights/your family member's rights DO NOT take precedence over mine! I know you will disagree, but too bad. What if I wanted your car because it was prettier than mine? Do I have the right to just take it? What if I NEED rent money, and you have more money than you need? Can I come take it just because? What if I am having difficulty feeding my child, can I come in your house and raid your refrigerator even though you say no? Where does it end?
