No response from facility

I was reported last year for possible diversion. 

*didn't waste at pyxis. The med was in my pocket. 

I was reported by another nurse, I resigned this travel the next day after, it was one thing after another at this facility. No perm staff, all agency. 

 

Anyway, when I found out I was reported, I didn't respond, I had kinda thought I was done with nursing. I was/still going through a nasty divorce, couldn't stomach both legal issues. 

Got a job in a different field after that fiasco. 

Anyhow, fast forward to now, I never heard anything else from the board,I called them 2 weeks ago and told them what was going on and that I would like to respond and keep my license if possible. She was nice and understanding, and I won't speak to them anymore. 

Has anyone else had a facility not comply with records? And are 3rd party reports easier to deal with vs a facility complaining?

Depending on your state, it could take months and even years to get to you.  I know, sounds crazy, but read through some of these posts and you will see it is true.

First, if you have an issue with any substance, take care of yourself.  Get whatever help you need to get and stay clean and sober.

Second, GET AN ATTORNEY!  Do not speak to anyone at the board or other nurses about this situation.  

Lastly, if you still want to be a nurse and can safely practice, go back to it (in case they do report you, you will be able to show safe practice record).  And bank as much money as possible.  This is not a cheap process.

If you feel you cannot go back to nursing right now, but want to in the future, keep up with your CEU's as required, and still bank that cash and hire an attorney, in case they do come after you.

Now, take a deep breath.  I know this seems daunting, but you can get through it.  Good luck and I wish you all the best.

Well, my state board IS on it. The facility has not complied with supplying the medical record. Maybe because it was a 3rd party complaint?

I am going to submit hair follicle and Peth tests over and get into dialysis in case this all gets nasty. I'll have a workable position. 

Davita has an acute position available, be a good start.

Oh, I see.  Wow, that is too bad the facility isn't doing their part.  Sorry for that.

Good idea with dialysis, that is recovery/monitoring friendly, so you should be good.

Hope it works out for you!  Stay strong!
