I interviewed a nurse today for a position as a quality review manager for our organization. She disclosed her narcotic IPN issue at the interview, which I think was a brave and honest move and definitely got her some serious brownie points. We have not offered her the job.
This is a corporate job with no direct patient contact but she will have access to patient information and a bunch of physician information too.
She is the strongest candidate I have interviewed and I want to hire her but I am afraid she might be tempted to use patient and physician information to illegally obtain narcs.
Are my fears unfounded? Am I being too paranoid? What is our liability if she actually does this since she has disclosed her problem and we would knowingly be hiring a person with a narc problem?
