    Its not grounds for license revocation. No Way. 30 years ago every patient where I worked was required to have a social service consult. The fact that the patient made the choice not to have surgery should be noteworthy for consultation. I myself would have gone about it differently but its still not something that requires the entire country to make note of. The case has got the attention of patient care advocates all the way to the white house and makes the az nursing board look corrupt. The nurse actually followed hospital policy before the order was written. Supervisor and another witness denied any knowledge of a request and permission for writing the order. Another physician controlled action.
    We have had a lengthy discussion about this case....I think she was out of her scope and deceptive about her credentials.

    So wait, according to the document above, after all her public essays/forum posts/blog posts/responses to blog articles/social media posts/interviews with media sources, etc., she basically admits that the initial complaint against her was in fact true?

    Pretty much. Then continues to post details on social media despite the restrictions in the consent agreement. Multiple excuses as to why she couldn't attend the ethics training or psychological counseling even when services were offered at no cost. As such her RN license was revoked at a BoN disciplinary hearing in Jan 2014. She even lied in social media about receiving psych evaluations claiming she was told she is the healthiest client the mental health professionals ever saw (per blog posts quoted as BoN evidence)

    Yikes.

    I read that Consent Agreement and the findings. Using social media to bash the SBN--especially individual members, by name, is just beyond me.

    Talk about losing sight of when to shut up.

    I can witness to the fact that the AZ BON, more than MANY others, are a bunch of folks that are in fact themselves, psychotic, power hungry, incompotent as 'nurses' and possibly out of touch with reality- more so, since many of them have been 'in power' even before electricity was invented?, not to mention most are purely political pawns. That said, this file portrays this nurse in a peculiar light, starting with the titles claimed, and etc. Tough call.
    OK OK

    Looked up her info on the AZBN site. Revoked in May 14, reported as Imposter in Sep 14. Curious as to what she was doing to get that last accusation filed by the board. Supposed to be studying to be a paralegal. Wonder what law firm would hire her.

    If I recall correctly she was attempting to offer nurse consultant services and legal nurse consultant services online post revocation. Her site/blog was pulled post AZ BoN intervention.

    Some people really have an overdeveloped sense of bravado.

    Oh, she has a blog that is active... Google "Nurse Interupted" (note misspelling). This woman is all kinds of crazy. The full disciplinary report is also available on Nursys. Apparently in the course of proceedings, Ms. Trujillo made a facebook post stating that a member of the BoN needed "a shovel to the face."

    I encourage ALL nurses to carry their own malpractice insurance! I would have immediately contacted my insurance carrier at the first whiff of trouble. Obviously, the hospital did not back her up. The physician sounds vindictive and somewhat like a petulant child in the post (throwing a tantrum). We know that physicians are "cash cows" for hospitals and that hospitals in turn "kowtow" to their requests, but something is not quite right in this post. I wish this nurse luck.It sounds as she was advocating for the patient but unfortunately her peers did not stand by her. The Nurse Practice Act should have covered her actions ie; did she act as any other prudent nurse in the situation?
