I wanted to get your advice on something. A while ago I was reported to the BoN (see my other threads) which turned out to be a nasty, evil mess. I have since then successfully resolved that situation (thanks to the Governor) but want to ask what you think of this:
A few months ago, a nurse in our department was caught bringing in contraband (tobacco) for, and may have engaged in some sexual contact with an inmate. The sexual contact couldn't be verified but she was guilty of the contraband. She was fired for it, and although not formally charged, she is guilty of a class C felony. As it was in the performance of her duties she was reported to the BoN by the warden himself.
We were braced for the worst, thinking she was going to lose her license. What did the BoN do? Give her a $500 fine and a reprimand!
Through an internal investigation, I was found innocent, and was never threatened with the loss of my job, yet I go through 18 months of hell in trying to clear my name with the BoN (who thought I was a sexual predator) while the other nurse gets by with a slap on the wrist? Yes the circumstances may be different, but the outcome is, I am employed, she was fired. I was found innocent, she was found guilty. Can someone explain this to me?
