    Board of Nursing Investigation for System Charting Error

    I did and they said it’s legit.

    Board of Nursing Investigation for System Charting Error

    The officer gave me an exact name of a patient and the drug involved. I have not had the actual interview yet. I’m consulting an attorney. I did call my facility and leave a message about the situation requesting them to get back with me. I hope that was the right move since it involves other nurses there, too. The board of pharmacy reported it. I don’t know if they make nursing reports aware to facilities.

    Yes, a notification would’ve been ideal. Because I’m PRN, I’m wondering if I missed it in a meeting or something. I like to think they informed 15 nurses involved!

    I am not paying the lawyer yet. I contacted them to see what to do first and at what point to hire. They said to hire initially to avoid providing information against my favor. If the facility is not required to be honest with revealing details, is the board of nursing? The lawyer told me the board has probably already been at the facility and has all the details to prove guilt besides my admission. The attorney said that they are calling to get me to admit guilt. He said their job is to disciple in, especially in my state. I left a note for the DON about this but it was through phone from the receptionist (on a Friday evening). I haven’t worked there in over 2 months but am still employed PRN.

    Thank you. I will postpone the interview. I contacted an attorney and they said to see what they want first then provide minimal information, then to call them back.
  6. I received an email from the BON compliance officer about wanting me to participate in an investigation. When I spoke with them, they stated it was about a med error for suboxone many months prior that 15 other nurses at the facility made. They stated it was minor and wouldn't result in suspension or loss of license, just disciplinary action at the very most. I told them I was concerned and may seek legal counsel. They continued to state that it was minor and they just wanted to get my take on the situation regarding safe medication administration. They want to schedule a time to interview. Do I accept the interview or consult an attorney? Should I speak to my unit first? Nobody has written me up or informed me of any med error regarding this. I also have not heard of our entire unit being under investigation, either. I have only been a nurse for 3 years and have never had this happen. My state nursing board has a reputation for being notoriously aggressive. What's the best way to proceed?
