AZBON The Bermuda Triangle of Nurses

Having inside connections with many nurses whom have gone through the disciplinary process of the AZBON this group is well aware of, and knowledgeable that the public is loosing good experienced nurses to a biased system; as well as legal mishaps that are founded upon a system structure not for public safety as it so powerfully highlights, but frequently out of administrative cronyism. Thankfully the AZ legislature and the tireless dedication like that of Nancy Barto, a new bill reducing this behavior by next year will be implemented. In the mean time if you are a nurse thinking of cruising through the nursing Bermuda triangle of Arizona, be aware of the horrors of those great nurses now residing in Davey Jones’ locker. Be advised.

  1. There are so many areas that need attention that has been long ignored . Now we know that Ducey and Ridenours husband , Cindy McCain , were all on a committee together but when it comes to DOING YOUR JOB. The cocktail hour should take back seat., bonding, making friends should be over ! I mean really sex trafficing and any of of these people know ANYTHING about it ? Just the fact the cases has sky rocketed since this waste of money was spent is telling. More victims , just like the BON. Now , we look at the BON cases , it appear as Michael Raine has been doing cases , WHAT?? That is four full time , (well mama might be a 1/2 timer ) attorneys just for the board of nursing??? What is going on? Are there that many bad nurses ? Or are they prosecuting whistle blowers? Or is Elizabeth A Campbell whining AGAIN. “sunita is only 50% and blah blah blah . ” well when nurses are short staffed no one cares and they do not get extra help . Campbell has a staff of paralegals, secretaries, and is whining like a child , too bad . MAYBE is she didn’t take bullsh*t cases she wouldnt be ‘overwhelmed ‘ Anyone feel sorry for this b*tch? The taxpayers are footing the bill for this pour acting !!!!

  3. Lock these corrupt judges up and watch their little party balloons pop. Elizabeth “Nifong ” Campbell,
    sometimes when you make your boss look bad , especially in a political year they come down hard on the one doing the corruption . (or got CAUGHT ) . lying , fraud, perjury, cutting things out of the record that were said, playing with the transcipts . It is all there. !

  4. Some of these cases are so crazy and ALL OVER THE PLACE with the results ! the same case ends up so differently . You would hardly believe that some of these board members have a nursing license . Writing on one nurses “findings of facts ” which should be “findings of witchhunting F O farts ” hot air is all it is!!! . they cited a nurse stating g “It is not standard of care to pull drugs prior to administering them ” DUH??? When do they pull meds AFTER they admin them ? then they go on to cite the nurse for not hanging iv fluids quickly enough (although the patient needed a picc line ) and drama queen investigator states that possible ACUTE kidney damage could occur. (this investigator has a glass ball and makes ‘guesses” predictions. . But when she does hang the iv fluid and runs it open , (we all know it will only go SO FAST WITH A PICC ) they make the statement the patient , could have(more predictions by the wizard investigators, drama queen ! ) gone into CHF. total IDIOTS !!! Nurses you cannot win, with these mormons running the show. they have no idea what it is to handle a team of patients and do the best you can .

  5. Arizona known as the worst state , for nurses and healthcare ! Here’s another one. The tele monitor coming in for nites pages the nurse and the cna to put the patient back on tele. She says she wants everyone on the monitor when she comes on runs a strip of each of them She got tired of calling and waiting , so she gets up and goes to the patients room to put the leads back on , and the leads were on , the battery was not dead the patient was ! And this happened in AZ . and one of those “great hospitals in the desert ” Right on the Colorado river border town , just across from Mexico . Of course the staff there will tell you nothing ever bad happens at this facitly ! Starts with a “y” . A mgt team that can lie their heads off ! OH the best part , nurse never reported , hush hush.

  6. I like one that happened at the Bannerific facility. tele monitors up on the counter for new admits . Nurses take the ones marked for their patients . Monitor tech transposes the numbers . the numbers not verified . One patient goes funky looking on monitor . Meds ordered given repeated, no change repeated no change. Well low and behold they were treating the wrong patient . Another Az case, and what happens at the BON ? nothing.

  7. hey hey hey reminds me of another one , also at the border town, that is in denial . the crash cart was used on nites, the band was not on , charge nurse calls pharmacy, who gave her #(*4(&$%$, FLACK . They sent up another cart. As luck would have it patient coded within < 2 mins of arrival . The icu nurse opened the cart and started saying very loudly "there are no drugs on this cart " . And repeated that statement many times (the hospital was very lucky no family to hear ) . The icu nurse was right. Running to grab 2nd cart in ob , the crash cart was loaded with purses !! the purses went rightfully FLYING across the room . well it turns out the pharm tech put in drawer #4 which was marked IV , (roman numeral 4) but she put all iv fluids in it, AND in the iv drawer she loaded that with iv fluids and left out all the drugs. of course the outcome for the patient was not favorable . Oh and the % of those who do not speak english at this facility is very high, just a stone throw from Mexico. So the language barrier didnt help in this mistake, but the pharmacist lose his license ? how can he , it was never reported . Nurse is responsible for all of it , all of it , all of it !

  8. stroll down memory lane, this was a while ago but still makes me shreak ! Remember when they gave shots to ‘dry up the milk if the mother was not going to breast feed.? Well , thats how long ago, but Ridenour was at the BON , so thats telling too!! (term limits HEY HEY) dinasour. (oh and if you think experience , just ask your buddy Preston, what that means ….NOTHING , you can still be a novice !! Ok back to the ‘hmmmmm med error . Well the nursing instructor asked the student what is the med for she told her, then she drew it up and went into the patients room , lifted up her hospital gown and gave the IM injection right in the breast ! oh yes she did Why ? your guess is as good as mine, get to that target tissue? lol? Now the best part again the instructor , nadda , no letter , no doc , nadda , SO another case of “cover up the big errors in AZ ” and ‘lets go after that NP with a DRs Degree that is writing emails to that boyfriend she hates now !!!!

  9. OMG . ! And I thought i heard it all ! Well , I cant tell you how many times I followed nurses , and the patient either crying or just plain upset, one telling DR G “do you know the difference between a rectum and a vagina ” he said “yes” then the patient said “well you better tell the nurses around here , she shoved the suppository up my vagina ” . OWW Ouch. Making rounds with the Dr, he said ‘it happens all the time we need to do an inservice. ” haha either that or pass out flash lights , or anatomy refresher. YEP happened in AZ . the nurses guilty of it , have nothing on their license , except active good standing. Yes AZ these are you GOOD nurses !

  10. A lady who moved to AZ from Calif with her sister both retired , ended up in one of AZ finest facilites (tongue in cheek ) the sister was given days of narcotics with nothing to counter act the constipating effects. So ‘pligged up ” she wanted to be ‘evacuated” the nurse refused , so gave her a suppository. Her sister who watched after her , said to me “it didnt work, the suppository was passed but nothing else, I saw the little silver suppository in the BSC , nothing else !!! Well you know as well as I do , the nurse did NOT take the wrapper off ! to make matters worse this was in ICU !, BEWARE of being a patient in AZ or working there ! Nurses cant even give a suppository right !

  12. well Marie that is what makes big headlines in AZ , IF they have targeted you. Nothing to do with ‘patient safety” . Now when the unsavory, head heifer at the AZBN gives propublica a statement ‘ the best communication cant stop nurses when they are intent on manipulating the system ” ARE YOU KIDDING ME !! Well Ridenour , that is JO Elizabeth Ridenour , the disreputable and unscrupulous monster at the BON , we are agree that it is YOU , that is MANIPULATING the system ! Doing what ever legal or not skirting around the law, but directly ignoring the law, your day will come , karma is a bitch !

  13. Drain the AZ Swamp , start with the AZBN , that the word is out , do not get a license in AZ, too risky . Not when these crazies can do what ever they want and just shoot from the hip with their “cases” . Some of the complaints should have been tossed when Janine, who likes to be called “dr ” although she cant even work as a NP and be safe , another AZBN JOKE ! The AZBN likes to calls nurses who work legally , state hoppers. But it is ok for them to take 3 -4 years to get a case to trial. !!! While the AZBN office is one big revolving door. The staff changes quickly , seems that some of the smarter ones get the picture of what is really going on , and want no part of it. It does take a real narcissistic individual to do the unscrupulous work .

Well this liar who can just make up crazy stuff on the spot only a wack job could believe a word she says . well now , she is bragging about ‘her grandfather was instrumental in carrying out the attack and heading up 200 men to kill Joseph Smith. She is from Carthage Ill. and she did say her father was COP, and she is not part of the mission . In fact a Jew. Little miss Ann, wow , if your mgt team could only hear you saying these things , taking down the leader , of their faith . We all know they protect another one but what would they do if she was bragging about her relatives taking down the prophet . ? This is just too funny . She is one that likes to puff her credentials and experience, she really is an odd ball . You would think ONE of her lies would put her in major doubt , but they didn’t amazing how that happened . so many lies and crazy stuff , trying to make someone else look crazy, such OLD tricks . but it sure did not do wonders for her . Keep bragging about how your relatives “killed off that crazy cult leader” . !! And the little bird who slipped this one out, ‘worked with her for about 6 months, i’m in hospice now” and it did not take 6 months for her to figure out she was working with a chief bullsh*tter!

    So UNimpressive . titles can work for some, especially sociopaths ! That is why they pretend to be what they arent just like that witch from Yuma in above article. Bragging about 200:2 (oh yea she said they ‘killed his no good crazy brother too” . just a tidbit of things , like the truth about SENIOR investigator !!! hahha no other agency would do this NONE !!! when you are the senior partner, you have EXPERINCE but with the BON , just do the dirty work is all that counts. !

  17. Oh hey will we’re at it . A nursing instructor told me that the board of nursing contacts her and warns her that a student put in a complaint !!! WOW !! that really blows their line of bull on the web site “every complaint is INVESTIGATED ” hahah NO investigation , no questions asked just report the student to the instructor !!! . ANd guess what else, i recorded the whole thing. !! yea , for me !!
    only because of a nasty old bon buddy running around doing unethical unprofessional things , (helping the board ) that would bobbin robbin.
    Now I’d bet what the bon is saying < we know this instructor and she would NEVER do that , (how do they kNOW???) no investigation !!! I cant wait to ask her again and see if she changes her answer !!! that would be the cat's meow , wouldn't it. !! now she can either tell the truth , and lose her buds at the board or lie , and then well, i guess THEN the board would have to charge her with unprofessional conduct.! oh now REVOKE cause , she is working with VUNERABLE PATIENTS !!! And how could a patient trust her anymore? ANy guesses how this will go ?

  20. Nurses do not let the time slip by before filing your claim against this evil board . So many are sorry they did not act sooner , or sorry they signed the consent agreement . When you look at the cases of nurses on probation and getting their licenses cleared it is a rare bird. This AZ Board of Nursing is the worst the most uneducated and corrupt in the entire nation. Better yet do not sign the consent , your lawyer is not doing you any favors asking you to do so . Be careful of lawyers who are ‘working with the BON ” having pow wows behind your back . Do not cave in , if you are being framed, the truth will prevail , and it surely wont come out of any board members mouth .

  21. Sometimes it just gets too deep to ignore the BS this board likes to spew . Every consent agreement , reads like a bunch of made up crap ! “consistent with public interest” REALLY , how does the BON know what the public is thinking ? I know one thing, many taxpayers are not too happy spending the money the board is spending , on trivial matters . Using Federal monies to retaliate and silence a mostly female profession. And yet at the same time protecting their own corner of the world , nothing to do with protecting the public.
    Ever call the BON office ? no one answers the phone , keeps directing you to their web site, and other directions that show they could care less. IF a nurse had a clinical question on the spot , they would not be able to get through the lines . HOW IS THIS PROTECTING THE PUBLIC , not being available . What is the head heifer doing , counting her pennies? having pep rallies on , DIG DEEPER , keep digging, call that psych back again until she writes it down ! , did anyone order lunch on the boards credit card yet. ?
    very disorganized, the knowledge of the entire board wouldn’t fit in a thimble. Horrible excuses for nurses, embarrassment to the entire state. ANd they call themselves LEADERS??? like ANYONE would want to be ANYTHING like any of them !

  22. This would almost be funny if it wasn’t 100% true. IF they spent time providing customer service and really taking public safety seriously , it may be safer in the hospitals in AZ . But with this poor group, and poorer leadership, they just spend taxpayers money foolishly . No wonder changes are in the works just not fast enough , been a long time coming. It will be nice to get some fresh blood , and clean out the old has beens/ never was !. If Jokey knew anything about managing employees , there wouldn’t be such a high turn over. the top dogs stay forever the rest scramble.
