Sounds like they want to review the video tape to see if this nurse actually gave the med or drew it up and pocketed it. I would be suspicious of a nurse that had no reason to go into another area to give a medication and then refuse to document it.

You are correct about that as this behavior can be indicative of diversion.

jinct, I am sorry you are going through all of this. You did the right thing, don't question that. This is a situation where the cameras will help. Also, do you have a Pyxis? If so, it should have a record of who pulled the Haldol. Chin up! You will come out of this ok.

Update:

Unfortunately, apparently the reason they are pulling security footage, which I thought was odd, is because the other nurse is now claiming she never gave the med and that I intimidated her into charting that she did something that she didn't do, which is TOTALLY false. I actually feel really bad about this whole situation, but it's her unwillingness to admit her mistake that is going to end up getting her in trouble.

I assume your facility has some sort of electronic medication dispenser such as a Pyxis? It should have data showing she removed the medication.

You may want to acquire legal help at this point.

This is really getting bizarre! My first impression is that she is trying to get herself out of a hole, but I could be wrong. Very strange. Is she an ER nurse too or from another unit somewhere?

Doesn't seem right that she can now claim she never gave it when there were two collaborating witnesses that she indeed did. What in the world is going on here? Keep us up to date, this is a real mystery.

I wouldn't make the mistake of believing that stupid cliche about how if you've done nothing wrong (or at least not the thing in question) you have nothing to worry about.

Have a good lawyer advise you. Perhaps their first task might be to inform this nurse that she has slandered you at the very least?

These people are playing games, and I'm not just talking about the nurse. There is a reason they had to make a point of asking you where this happened, as if they can't figure out how to review their own footage. 🙄 Well, apparently the footage corroborated your version, so now they're on to new accusations.

(I have a theory about why they would entertain anything this woman says, beyond just doing a thorough investigation: By any chance is she a "team player" who helps those almighty ED throughput numbers by being 50 gazillion percent responsible for all the patients and all the coworkers, like all good little ED nurses are supposed to do? Without knowing anything about this, I'm willing to bet that she has been praised for stuff like this in the past--and she would have been this time, too, if she hadn't given the wrong dose.)

Why would anyone want to divert Haldol? Is this a thing?

Not the last I knew. Seroquel, very much so, Wellbutrin, yes. These drugs are now classified as "controlled" in some settings.

Intimidated? Are you bigger and taller than everyone else? Do you have authority to discipline or fire staff members? Do you have a history of violence? Are you sleeping with the CEO?

Unless one of these gets a "yes" answer, you don't have the power to intimidate anyone. What is it she thought you'd do if she didn't 'fess up to something she didn't do?

This is completely pathetic. If management can be suckered by this they're even more pathetic. Square your shoulders and stand your ground.

She's dancing pretty fast, and bound to fall over. Her lies are running into each other.
