I received a complaint from OSBN for resident negligence in obtaining medication which lead to patient harm. The med was Vancouver for C Diff. Patient was DC’d from rehab to ALF without enough med for weekend. I obtained lawyer. Went to meet investigator. Found out ALL my progress notes in chart are MISSING. My former employer states they provided everything available. From what the OSBN has obtained it looks as though I am guilty. I have informed my lawyer and OSBN investigator of missing documents. I have a witness that corroborates my story and that I did document. OSBN is still investigating and I wait
if that wasn’t enough, my current employer just received notice from APS that they have substantiated abuse against me for the same issue my current employer had me leave site immediately.
Im at a loss now! How can I fight the fact that all my documentation has mysteriously gone missing? I have a witness but I’m afraid that’s not enough!
Im out of a job now and had no malpractice insurance so not sure I can continue to pay attorney.
I have never had complaint, med error, discipline, coaching or anything in my 10 years as a nurse.
Im sitting here, without a job ( that I love) not knowing where to turn.....
