Hi, I am an FNP that discovered that MD at same practice was diverting control substances for himself using my DEA number, I reported him. An investigation is being conducted, he is now accusing me of diversion because he provided me a prescription for my sleeping pill Ativan QHS. I honestly admitted that he provided me with a prescription & that I never diverted control substances for myself. He resigned, the pharmacy tech was fired since they were both involved. I am still working until investigation is conducted. Do I need a lawyer? Chances of loosing job or risking license when I am being honest?

I am no expert but you may want to at least consult with a lawyer who specialises in this sort of thing. If you are in California, I know a great NP lawyer (yes, a lawyer and a practicing NP).

Dear heavens yes, you need an attorney. I hope you have spoken to one by now. I'm guessing the DEA, your state BON and Board of Medicine are all involved. Best of luck to you as this gets sorted out!
