Board of nursing

  1. Hello. One year ago I was suspended 3 days for signing for a sacral dressing that I didn't do. My don reported me to the b o n. I got a call from them in August asking for my statement of what happened. Unfortunately I did not have malpractice insurance. Big mistake!! Last week I got a letter from them that they found me guilty of neglect. I can go against the board and fight it. Or I can pay a $250 fine a get 3 years probation. I don't know what to do. Anyone have any similar situation? Thanks.

    I would call a lawyer ASAP. I'm surprised they are charging you with neglect for this one instance.
