I agree with you 100%

The problem with the post you are agreeing with is that in Texas (don't know if it's ever been made clear that's where the OP is), you can't "file quietly." You do not file with the BON, you must go through your facility.

That is true. And the BON has a history of not supporting nurses who are retaliated against.  SH unfortunately,  really is something the BON created to give appearance of addressing issue they hear as mitigating circumstances in disciplinary issues, all the time. It is a double edged sword. The BON will respond with question of did nurse call SH when errors or bad outcomes predictably occur because of poor staffing or system problems. Also when nurses claim unsafe conditions as a mitigating circumstance for a bad outcome the Board will respond with that they cannot address or influence employment or facility issues. We assist nurses navigate Board actions against their license and have seen this very issue. We have had cases where the Board charged that the nurse failed to call SH.
