I am back at work. And super scared to be here in lieu of what is going on. I have a lawyer on retainer that is costing me $5000.  I am really thinking about just not coming back because I am afraid of what else they will try to sanction me with. 
I completely agree with you Why have me stay if you think I’m such a horrible nurse to begin with that you had to contact the board for me

That's the Board's first clue that the complaint is a malicious one.  Your practice is so terrible your supervisor has to report you but you get to keep working there.  Yeah, right.

I second this. I just caught up on a thread and part of me wants to tell you to stay just so then if this IS a malicious attempt by your supervisior she does something else to give your lawyer more ammo to bury her in the dirt. And if it isn't and it was just a med error that needed to be reported, then it all blows over and you are safe. Maybe he was sleeping in his later classes and that's why the audit was done?

I am so sorry for the stress you must be under!! Honestly, this was not even something I thought to check.  I count in scheduled drugs, keep a detailed record of administration but never considered that I had to verify that the medication in the bottle was correct.  WOW  Thinking of you.  I am sure right will be on your side!  HUGS

This is so unsettling. I am so sorry and hope you feel our collective support for you. This is wrong on so many levels. ?

You may have already done this, but can you find the precise definition of what the "5 Rights" are, according to your State's Board of Nursing? This could be a game changer, because I am pretty sure that the definition is not what your supervisor is indicating.

There is nothing anywhere that’s stated to use a pill identifier. But here I am in limbo and $5000 poorer.
