I have been told these are non-drug related issued I have had two drug screens recently One a patient accused me (falsely) of not giving him his narcotic medicine. The other I worked an extra shift and nodded off while charting There were also some patient complaints - had to wait too long for meds etc Both drug screens came back negative Anybody know what I should expect when I call to "self report"?

- Jul 26, '12 by Emilynn09What are you self reporting if your drug screens are negative? What is there to report?
- Well lol that was my question as well Apparenly IPN also evals and treats for mental and physical issues. Due to the fact that I dosed off at work, had a previous drug screen (negative) and some patient complaints they want me to be evaluated for underlying issues
I do have some stress or occasional depression like everyone else but that didnt come into play in these situations. I didnt realize how tired I was (it was 2hrs before end of 12 hr shift )
They are saying that falling asleep in the middle of the day is suspicious, which I get. I actually voluntered to take the drug screen
- Jul 26, '12 by xoemmylouoxI don't know if I would self report if you don't know what you are reporting for. I would find a lawyer first and see what you are legally forced to do. I wouldn't do anything until then. That is my .
- I was terminated and can be rehired once I talk to the IPN. Job states that the IPN will notify then if I dont call the IPN So, I go see them, and they want me to sign a contract and I refused then what happens? I am not sure if this situation is reportable to the BON or not
- Oh and the other conplaint was that my charting was behind
- Jul 26, '12 by CrunchRNSeriously? get a healthcare lawyer. No way should you have to sign a contract with negative screens. Who couldn't nod off doing a double?
- I have been asked by my job to self report to IPN I had two drug screens recently One a patient accused me (falsely) of not giving him his medication and the other I worked an extra shift when they called me in and dozed off at computer. There were also some patient complaints - meds late, didnt answer call bells fast enough etc, and my charting was behind
Drug screens in both were negative. I actually voluntered on the second occasion to take the drug screen. I do have a previous DUI that I self reported to the BON that they dismissed.
My job has terminated me and I am eligible for rehire once I talk to IPN. If they want me to sign a contract and refused then what happens? I do not know if these issues are reportable to the BON or not. I do have some stress and occasional depression but that didnt come into play in this situation
What should I expect?
- Yeh I am not signing a contract I should also say that I had a DUI a few years back but I self reported that to the BON and they dismissed my case , not sure if that will cause an issue even tho the case was dismissed
- Wasnt a double, reg 12 hr shift but I was originally off that day and came in because they called me and I was up kinda late the night before
