I completed one contract at this hospital in California and was a month into my second one with them. I was called to the directors office and told that there were 2 discrepencies with narcotics i handled. One was a vial of fentanyl that i wasted the entire thing(in front of another nurse) but it was a couple of hours after i pulled it. And the other was i accidentally pulled 2 vicodin out of the pyxis under the newborns name instead of the mom. Mom only wanted one. When i tried to return it under mom i saw what i had done. I think i tried to correct it by acting as if i were going to take one for mom so the drawer would open, put the vicodin back and then hit cancel all meds. I have never stolen narcotics but as i try to defend myself i am told that "we have heard it all". So it seems i am guilty until proven inocent. If they do their investigation and still have suspicition they will report me to the board. I don't know what to do. No one has asked me to take a drug test. And because i was familiar with the term "diverting" that seemed to add to their suspicion. My agency has informed me that if it goes to the board they will not work with me. Even without proof. I'm not new to nursing, I know that many nurses divert but I am not one of them. I need some solid advise please. I work labor and delivery and during difficult repairs the residents will often ask us to run and get fentanyl for the pt's comfort during the repair. I am sure thats what this was related to. That i pulled it per request and we didnt end up needing it.
