Preferably a RN/JD

Never trust the BON, they do not represent your interests.  Speak to a nurse specialist attorney first for your own protection.  Your malpractice insurer may be able to provide advice to you, be sure to look into this.

Are you sure it’s your BON? With all the spam/fake calls going on, this may just be one of them. Even if you verified their telephone number, that can be faked on your caller ID. 

No one in your facility has spoken to you about this. Not your charge nurse, DON, quality control? Do you remember anything amiss in that patient’s MAR? Any fellow nurses jonesing around for info? 

I’d be smelling a rat, here.

If it were me, I would find an attorney who WILL go with you or at least tell you not to answer anything and refer the BON to them.

Of course they are going to tell you "it's minor", because it is not their licenses on the line, it's yours.

Clam up, lawyer up.

This whole situation sounds shady and very awkward.  And sounds like someone is just fishing for information or rather ‘dirt’ to either bury the other nurse or yourself with.  Like the general consensus given here, I’d consult a reputable attorney before giving any information or feedback.  Long shot but I’d also request to see if I could speak with legal at the SNF to see what they might advise since they are probably aware of the case and allegations, and depending on the SNF’s involvement could direct you on what to do.

Should I contact my DON about it? I haven’t mentioned it yet and my attorney advised me to keep it confidential. However, I need to be aware of any policy changes since I have not worked there recently as PRN.

Follow the advice of your attorney. Your DON thought nothing about contacting you.

Follow your attorney’s advice. You should stop posting here too. This website is not exactly confidential.

No. Talk to an attorney if needs must. I did this. I was a new nurse and thought honesty is the best policy. I wound up with a reprimand on my license. Wish I had kept my mouth shut. 

The reprimand isn't a big deal. I've never had a problem with being employed. I just have to explain EVERY TIME what happened. It never goes away. Ever. 

I wish someone had told me to never talk to the board unless you absolutely legally have to. 

Best luck!
