I lady I work with got in legal trouble, didn't report it to the board when renewing her license and now is on probation with the board. According to the files on the board's website she isn't allowed to touch any scheduled meds. This makes it sort of complicated on our floor, we have a lot of post surgery pts who need pain meds. She usually asks other nurses to go give the pt in room whatever some Norco, for example. But I'm tired of doing this. She never volunteers to do something for my pt while I'm taking care of hers. And she's never told anyone the truth on why she can't give the meds herself.
To top all this off the NM never even told the staff about this issue with her and scheduled drugs. I found out after looking her name up on the boards site...she kept asking everyone to give her meds and I got suspicious. In fact I'm not even sure the NM knows, as there are other conditions on her license that she doesn't even follow, like she's not suppose to supervise students, but the NM assigns student nurses to work with her.
I just want to stay clear of this person...
