  3. Help here
    So many people could be saved from this disease if it weren't for the weird way some facilities do wastes. In one hospital, the waste had to be recorded at the Pyxis when the med was taken out even...

  4. How have your career aspirations changed, if at all?
    I left nursing. I couldn't bring myself to put up with the terms of my monitoring agreement, knowing that getting a job would be next to impossible once I completed it. I work in a law firm now. ...

  5. Does anyone else feel violated?
    You aren't crazy. Your rights are being violated. Many courts have found this to be the case. I think it's only a matter of time until SCOTUS will take it on. In the mean time, it wouldn't hurt...

  6. TPAPN and EtG
    They set the cut-offs sufficiently high to prevent false positives. As far as whether they test for etg, are you willing to find out the hard way? Unfair as it may seem now, you either play by the...

  7. MI nurse looking for HPRP advice
    HPRP is a career killer. There's no silver lining. They aren't there to help. Honestly, I think they exist solely to prevent nurses from being nurses. Do not be honest and do not throw yourself...

  8. Any advice on which path to take, IPN or self-report and go from there.
    When I was practicing, I was told that if a nurse fails to report a DUI, s/he may find himself in a great deal of trouble. As DUI is a criminal charge, I would consider consulting an attorney. It's...

  10. Almost 4 years, no luck finding nursing job, life destroyed?!
    I'm glad that it worked out for you. My first job was in hospite respite care and oncology and I think I suffered something akin to PTSD as a result. I know we're all headed there, and I am...

  12. nurses in recovery continue to suffer at the hands of board
    It is a covered disability if the nurse self reports before being caught being sick. Kind of ironic. You have to report that you have a disease before you've fallen so far down the rabbit hole of...

  16. Relocating with a Monitoring Agreement
    I guess it's an "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em" strategy. And I agree with you 100% that your outcome is likely to be more favorable if you have an attorney. The entire process is...

    Attorney blah blah blah attorney... Yeah. We all know we need one but when we're working for 10 bucks an hour, it seems slightly less feasable. First off, attorneys are expensive. Mine wanted...

  18. Almost 4 years, no luck finding nursing job, life destroyed?!
    Don't feel bad if you have to give up. There are many people who aren't nurses and they're perfectly happy. My feeling as of late is if they don't want me, I can do without them. I got one degree...

  19. Can NY BON request medical records?
    I cannot offer legal advice. What I can offer is reassurance that no one has requested unlimited access to my medical records. Ever. I have been a nurse since 2004. Nursing is a job, just like...

    It is a "health professional panel" that includes etg. If you have a preliminary positive, they will do the more advanced testing that will tell them if you've even had a Sudafed recently. They...

    Find an attorney. In my humble opinion, the first physician you visited had no business releasing personal health information without your approval. Yes, his lack of confidentiality may have saved...
