IL BON disclipline?


Has anyone ever been investigated by the IL BON? What has the timeline been like if you don't mind sharing. I was informed after resigning as a case manager nurse that I was being reported for a documentation error. I initially heard from an investigator via email that a complaint was made. I returned her call and was told what the complaint was (the documentation error), that I did not need to make a statement, and that once something official was filed I would be able to see the info under a case number and that I would receive more info. The investigator did imply that they had not actually reviewed the "proof" sent to them yet or had not actually received it.

My question is-it's been one year. I haven't heard anything more. Does anyone know what the typical process is like? Will I get something in the mail? Does it usually take this long to get anything? I am ready to fight this and hate waiting. I have spoken to a few lawyers but all have suggested waiting it out since nothing "official" has been sent. I have another job at a hospital that I plan to stay at for a long time. I hate this hanging over me and really need to understand what I can expect in terms of the process. Both lawyers told me I would hear something within a few months (one said it would happen by the Summer, one said no later than the fall).

Any experience that you can share would be great.

If anyone has anything, please send me a message! Looking for experiences and outcomes, etc. Thank you!
