I am a Correctional Officer in North Carolina. I am also a nursing student trying to get out from under such tyranist such as Gov. Easley. Anyway I dont know about your prison but at ours, when we suspect an inmate of "suitcasing" contraban they are placed in an observation room with nothing but a bed pan. The theory is whatever is in there has to come out sometime and the whole process is non-intrusive, but time consuming. I'm sorry to hear about your job, but will you really miss it?

See a lawyer!

I'm shocked!!! 1st of all thanks for all the replies. Ok update.....I contacted the Kentucky Board of Nursing and they sent a letter to my boss letting him know that a body cavity search was not in the scope of nursing.......3 weeks pass and my grandmother has a heart attack, I call into work 3 days spending them at the hospital in CCU with her......my boss calls and questions me if I still refuse to do a body cavity search, I told him yes as long as KBN says I can't, I can't.....so he then says I'm dismissed from my job because of this..........Any suggestions???
I am also from Kentucky. You can call the board, but it will NOT help. I hate to say. Call the NPO. WONDERFUL organization.
Going to look for the number now.......brb.
Their full name is Nurses Professional Organization. Their location is 1169 Eastern Parkway. Louisville Kentucky. I have only been gone a year. Im sure they would not have moved. But just in case call information if you cant get ahold of them. The phone (502)4593393.
They are specifically there for nurses that have met with injustice. They have their own legal consultants and can tell you exactly what to do. It was founded by nurses for nurses. They are there for your intersests. It is a non profit organization. Believe me, they will be there for you.
PS: They might have a web site. Im going to look now. Ill get back with you.
