    This might be off topic, but I was wondering if as a nurse you have the right to refuse to work with someone who is practicing unsafe medicine? That creep should be held accountable, but what if the others won't go along with Dayray? You can't fight a huge fight like that by yourself.

    Kudos to you Dayray. So glad to have people like you to inspire us all to do the right thing, even if it's not the easy thing.

    I'm sorry I have no advice for you, but I just wanted to say good for you for being such a great advocate for these patients ...... you're helping so many women by putting a stop to this doctor's horrific practices. Good job!

    I hope you can stop him. I've run across bad OBs in my day and continual documentation and complaining can stop him. Good luck! Thanks for standing up for your patients too.

    I am a very gentle person and would definitely feel violated as a patient if he handled me this way. I would be very upset and angry. I can't believe there have not been complaints against this jerk.

    I'm glad to see you have gone to your manager about this. I'm a little concerned about your posting of such an account on a public web site like this. I have not been participating in allnurses for long but I would be concerned about making this as public as you have. Anytime possible criminal behavior is written down, it is part of a public record that may be used in court. And although we use pseudonyms for our posts, it is possible to figure out who you are and who you work for. Just a word of caution.

    It looks like DayRay has been a member here for quite some time now. He doesn't even have his location listed ..... so I don't see how this would even be a problem.

    Thanks for all the support, it helped more then any of you know. I have put some things in motion and hopefully the abuse will be stopped. I really think there is a good chance it will.

    Someone had mentioned an issue of anonymity. Your right, this does place me at risk for someone figuring out who I really am. To be honest it wouldn't be all that hard for someone who knew me in real life to figure out it's me with the name dayray. I have a tendency to talk about the same issues I post here not to mention a few more obvious clues. I don't worry so much about this being used against me legally but I do indulge in a bit more self-disclosure here then I'd like for people in real life to know.

    I think you are being anonymous enough, Dayray.... Heck I don't even know where you live or what your real name is. I would not worry too much here, Dayray. Just know, we admire your guts and advocacy on the part of your patient. Let us know what happens next.
