    Wondering about working for Davita Dialysis

    Hi tiffpritRn Im sorry for a late response. i kept checking my last response and didnt see any more post and didnt realize there was the next page. Thank you for the information. I am in texas, the worst place to work as a nurse. Ive made the biggest mistake of moving to texas. I have a warning with stip. I tried to find a job working in the laboratory and the company usually use the third party background check company and even though lab work has nothing to do with nursing when they do backgroumd check they pull out the nursing license stilulation. So im afraid im going to have a same problem with the davita or fresnius. Do you know if davita use third party background check company Your situation is very weird. Is the Bon investigating now? Do you have a lawyer who can help you? I hope everything is going to be okay with you because ive been through h.

    Wondering about working for Davita Dialysis

    So if i apply for a patient care tchnician and if they do background check is my nursing license information going to show or does it only show criminal record? From what i read nurses can work in dialysis with drug related disciplinary acrion so i think uou might be okay.

    Wondering about working for Davita Dialysis

    If i have a board order from nursing am i going to be able to work as a patient care technician instead of nurse and is it still going to show up on the background check and going to be an issue? What kind of information is shown from background check at fresnuis or davita dialysis?
  4. I got warning because i was accused of hitting a patient in nursing home. thats why i got warning. Now I know I am never going to be able to work a nurse again/ If I got wrarning because I forgot to chart something or made a minor med error, maybe there is a chance I'll be able to find a job. Now i'm worried that even if I go back to school in another medical field, is warning on my license going to haunt me for the rest of my life? Are they going to look up my license? I dont know how I'm going to explain why i left nursing. I am feeling so hopless right now
  5. I need an advice from you guys because I dont know who else I can ask for help. I received a warning on my license and I know I am never going to be able to work as a nurse again. So i thought about going back to school and study medical lab technician. Then I thought even i finish the program am I going to able to find a job? Because I have to list nursing work as a previous work history and they are going to know why I quit nursing and became a lab tech and I have to tell them why. Do you think tag on my license is going to prevent me from finding another job? Should I not even waste time to study med tech? Is there a chance they might check my nursing license to find out why i have warning on my license? I dont know what to do
  6. I need to ask DON at long term care facility and i need an honest answer. If a nurse comes to you and tells you that her license has been disciplined for a false accusation of hitting a patient. Her license was put on either warning or reprimand. Is that a ground for an immedate termination at your facility?

    medical coding

    Is medical coding differet from HIT? ARe more hospitals or doctors office more likely to hire nurses with coding training or is it sitll difficult to find jobs after completing the program? I'm worried about how many people mentioned that medical codes can be charged with fraud.

    medical coding

    Is anyone here working as a medical coding? I would like to hear more about it about job outlook, how difficult the job is, is there a lot of risk involved with this job?
  9. How about an inpatient rehab unit in the hospital? Patients are less acutely ill, better patient to nurse ratio then LTC. Your nurse manager doesnt seem to be very fair to me. ((hugs))))

    how to find a lawyer

    i'm looking for a lawyer to defend my license but if they charge more than other lawyers then it means they just want to make money?

    how to find a lawyer

    I am looking for a lawyer but how do I go about finding one? If I go to doctors office, there are some doctors who barely examed me and wanted to charge me for it and there are doctors who takes time and do a through exam and explain things. So i assume lawyers are the same thing. How do I know if a lawyer wants to help or just wants to make profit?

    IT depends on where in HOuston you are going to be moving to. IF you apply anywhere, you might end up driving 40 or 50 miles to work and some places are not very safe area so its better to find place to work after you move to HOuston or come to HOuston and find place to work befoe you actually move.
  16. what is your facility's policy when a staff observe and reporting an abuse?
