It can be easily said from those nurses who’ve been through the AZBON disciplinary process that it is political and has very little to do, in many cases, with public safety. In many cases there is simply a collusion between Adm Law Court & the Attorney Generals office, and, of course, the AZBON. If a trial is suppose to be a search for the truth, as a respondent, you can forget that. You are entering the most politically corrupted system our local government can produce. We all must face the fact that this agency does see a large group of narcotic thefts and stupid nurse behaviors, but not all cases are accurately pigeonholed to nurse career doomsville. Many nurses are crucified for political favors to protect each others financial and political interests. The icons are many more besides the Trujillo case which has brought the view of outrageous regulatory actions into view for the rest of the country to see what Arizona has done to nurses. SB 1452 as well as more deregulation actions will help stem the tide of this out of control system. The pictured individuals below are two primary reasons for illegal governmental nurse disciplines. The lady with the glasses in top view represents the Az Attorneys Generals Office. Beth A. Campbell, the bottom picture is judge Pat Starr and between the two they’ve destroyed more lives than cancer. The evidence of imperfection is a gross understatement.
There are many specific cases noteworthy for names, dates and times but with this kind of illegal arrogance it is wise to remain security conscious, therefore posters please DO NOT post nurses names.
I know not what others may choose but, as for me, give me liberty or give me death.
I know of no way of judging the future but by the past.
For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst and provide for it.
Experienced nurses know that psyche evals aren’t really the gold standard in defining patient safety. Somebody had a bad day and its not a stretch to be considered for the UNA Bomber potential. Protect yourself. Word to the wise:
beware those of you who are ordered a psych evaluation. If you feel unwarranted do not do it . Yes it is rigged all the way. If you had dui or other problems , and do a psych evaluation . DO NOT sign that the board of nursing can CALL THE PSYCH , or release information to them !!!! the board has NO BUSINESS calling them and discussing your case. If you do not sign they cannot do this. !!! It has become a common practice , and is not part of what they bon ‘investigator needs to be doing ! A written report is sent to the board. THIS is a problem for the BON , but it was them who decided the nurses would pay for psych evals . WHen the board was paying they can get what ever they want but NOT when the nurse is footing the bill. They want it both ways though, too bad , stick to your rights !!
With the signing of SB 1452 a message is being sent that the abuse of nurses is being monitored and new rules will regulate the AZBON, AKA Lynch Mob, from enjoying what has unnecessarily destroyed the careers of many qualified and experienced nurses. Its a lengthy bill and amendments which can be turned into a positive event for nurses which can also have an indirect results on quality patient care. This new bill should help stem the tide on expensive and ridiculous complaints that the Board seemed to get high on. The term limits portion has a message for us all to get a present day standard of view and get away from a tainted cultist cronyism judgement. Congratulations to R Nancy Barto of Dist. 15 for her continuous dedication to assist nurses and their work promoting quality patient care.
