    It's stories like this that push me closer and closer to the edge of leaving nursing altogether. I'm so glad you kept your license and it was resolved.

    Quote from dishes
    Canada has not seen the price hikes that US has and some Americans are ordering epipens online from Canada for $110 per pen.
    Again which proves the benefits of having government negotiate prices for drugs. Almost every other industrialized western nation does so except the United States. Here we are left largely to be fed to the wolves in the name of free market.

    Not for nursing to "handle."

    A friend of mine used to put her flavored creamer in a Tupperware bottle with the label "breast milk" on it to keep people from using up all of her creamer.

    Perhaps you ought to consider filing a claim for wrongful prosecution?

    Your BoN clearly needs to revise its approach,
    & it may take a lawsuit to get them up to speed.

    Of course it is the primary duty of a BoN to ensure public safety via
    regulating nurse conduct, but never-the-less - it is incumbent on them
    to act in accordance with professional values, too.

    Basic issues like natural justice & the merit base of the case appear lacking
    in this instance, prosecution of which has quite evidently been the cause of
    needless angst & other costs to you.

    Slap a defamation suit on the false complainants, too.

    State Boards of Nursing will not allow the nurse facing charges to know the name(s) of the person/persons filing the complaint(s). I think that is total crap. Many nurses have faced bogus & false complaints made against them by other nurses that didn't like them, a scorned ex-boyfriend/ex-girlfriend, or someone they rubbed the wrong way, which the BON don't even investigate before charging them & making their lives hell. I think the rules must be changed in this regard to prevent false complaints from being filed. Nurses have the right to know who filed the complaint(s) so they have proper avenues of redress against the false complaints. It would greatly reduce the false complaints from being filed if people knew that their identities were going to be revealed to the nurse and that they would run the risk of being sued for slander & libel.

    If I were you, I would submit a Freedom of Information Act request for ALL of the information with respect to the complaint submitted to the BON. Get the name(s) of the people and sue them for libel & slander. You've got a strong case for a lawsuit----then the person(s) that submitted the bogus complaint(s) can defend themselves in a court room just like you had to. That will make them think twice before ever doing that again.
