Impaired Nursing


Hey everyone...I am an RN currently in a BSN program and I am stuck on an issue that was presented in a discussion board. The question posed to me was how does or how has the MEDIA addressed the concern of impaired nursing (alcohol addicted or drug addicted nurses)? If anyone could be of assistance or guide me in the right direction I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks for any help.
