    AZBN The Revoke Queens 

    About a year ago the AZBN was chosen to present their model for disciplining nurses which we recognize as being selected through Emma Mamaluy, in house legal counsel, and Janeen Dahn associate director in charge of Complaints & Investigations. This was done at a National Council of State Boards of Nursing conference in view of many representatives of the country’s  nursing boards presumably because of the model the AZBN used with success in the vast volume of nurse disciplines served. Arizona is second, only to California, who successfully revokes dump truck loads of nurse licenses. The presentation by both Mamaluy and Dahn give a clear picture of the pristine approach of the window dressing used to remove nurses from practice. The massive volume of fallen nurses is in itself and by itself an alarming trend that simply adds to the now well known fact that health care in the U.S. is the 3rd leading cause of death. The presentation, again and again, state how their goals are specific to protecting the public.  Is that right? The U.S. Dept. of Public Safety reports that at least 1 person every hour, in every state, dies from UNREPORTED medical errors. Bernie Sanders, chair of that committee, announces that 20 years ago it was reported that figure as being 100 a year. What happened?

    The ‘great minds’ Dahn refers to in her presentation defines to the general public what a great job the AZBN is doing in disciplining violators of the nurse practice act. Mamaluy defines the legal aspect in accomplishing this process in the cheapest way possible. ‘One size fits all.’

    These presenters get their information and complaint investigation evidence through a venue that has many different levels of staff and health care agency management whose costs are unmeasurable but common sense knows this figure to be in the high millions. They are convinced they do the best job in the world.

    Many a nurse interviewed about this disciplinary process they just went through will easily define perjury and tampering with evidence, incredulous witnessing and intimidation as the mode used to be expelled from nursing.

    Mamaluy, is the pit bull on social behaviors deemed harmful to the public. Domestic violence with your drunken husband, exposing patient safety issues, testing positive for marijuana, defining physician quacks, crying during a ten minute ridiculous psychological evaluation and an unreported OUI can cost you your career; if not send you to jail. We won’t even mention the collisions between health care administrations and nursing boards. Huge false allegations are reported, over and over. Of course racism belongs on the same flagpole with the Arizona state  flag. Broadway Joe is a disgrace who was allowed to continue for 20 rs. or more.

    The patient toll keeps rising as does the costs for maintaining these monstrous agencies whom are packed full of ambitious people making lots of tax payers money who don’t have a clue what the floor nurse goes through in a 12hr shift. That is where the experts are at, not in the war locker of the AZBN, as they claim. I take it back, maybe they do have a clue, that is why they so desperately present themselves as public saviors in spite of the fact the general public is scared to death to use the health care system. 

    Mamaluy and Dahn need to get in the field and help nursing stab these horrors of dereliction of duty and report the truth in medicine. It might be suggested for either of these ‘great minds’ to work the floor to get a better perspective of ‘real nursing’. Well, size them up in this video & see if either one could make to the end of 12 hr shift.

    ‘Rino’ Administration 

    Most experienced nurses have a solid understanding what the term ‘confidentiality’ means in relation to patient privacy without needing a 10 week course in relating to what the general public has access to. It is relatively simple, or was before the massive governmental regulations bored itself down on every comma, period and sentence ever printed on health records.

    What about the nurse who gets investigated by the AZBN and submits themself to evaluations by providers and pays for that evaluation themselves. Being of sound mind and body the future of those records are guarded from release to the public, most of the time, depending upon the politics of the case and, more importantly, what that nurse agrees to on a consent agreement. The access to those evaluations, even for the nurse who bought and paid for an evaluation, is blocked by the attorney general, violating federal law. Siting some rinky dink state law sponsored by AZBN. As many Arizonians now are aware of the overburdened government is overburdened by the overburdened government. That isn’t a typo. Rules, laws, laws,rules and the continued monster growth of a government is so far removed from the Goldwater foundations there isn’t enough sky up there to float another bond to pay for this overburdened monster.

    Any consent agreement you sign for the AZBN is about protecting the faults and errors of the AZBN and the attorney generals’ office. This process has zero to do with protecting the public. However, it does not over ride Federal law for access to those who have paid for an evaluation and the record can ALWAYS be made available to that person. In the ‘Rino’ state of Arizona you’ll need to file suit to get your own records that you paid for.

    Dear Ms. Lynn Reichle,
    Please read the email below from Elizabeth Campbell, Assistant Attorney General assigned to the Arizona Board of Nursing, regarding your request to obtain materials used in the psychological evaluation conducted in September of 2015 which was requested by the Arizona Board of Nursing.

    Dr. Rollins,


    As you know, I am one of the Assistant Attorney Generals who represents the Arizona Board of Nursing.  Although I do represent the Board, please note that I do not represent you and cannot provide you with legal advice.  I understand that Ms. Reichle has requested documents from you related to the evaluation that you performed on behalf of the Board in September 2015.


    In connection with your evaluation of Ms. Reichle in September 2015, Board staff sent you documents from the Board’s investigative file.  Under ARS 32-1664(M) and (N), documents received and maintained by the Board as a result of its investigation are confidential.  Because you were acting as a consultant for the Board in performing the evaluation, documents provided by the Board remain confidential in your possession.  Specific items from the Board’s investigative file are available to a respondent under ARS 32-3206, but that is only in connection with an administrative hearing, and those items would come from the Board (not the evaluator).


    In this case, instead of pursuing an administrative hearing, Ms. Reichle resolved her Board case with a consent agreement in November 2015.  Ms. Reichle did not comply with the consent agreement and, pursuant to its terms, her RN license and AP certificate were revoked in January 2016.  Ms. Reichle’s Board case is closed and she is not now entitled to receive documents from the Board’s investigative file at this time.


    If Ms. Reichle has requested documents not addressed in this e-mail, please let me know, and I will provide further information with regard to those specific requests.  Also, if Ms. Reichle were to take any legal action to obtain confidential documents, please let me know so that the Board can take appropriate action.

    The roaring lion needs to go back to law school. Law allows provider to decide. Suppose to. The dedication of this post, and other posts, is in direct evaluation that the A.G. office is directly noted with obstructional actions. Can it be confused with being legally correct.  It is when you don’t have to answer to anybody. Confused about the legalities related to health care records?? If there is a law it doesn’t matter when you are with the A.G. .


    On a lighter note, rumor has it Stormy Daniels is challenging Joe Arpaio for the vacant senate seat.
