“Protecting The Public” AZBN

It hasn’t been too long since the azbn has moved downtown in the government center in an attempt to consolidate the regulatory agencies. A move which is evidently the creation of an administration wanting to reduce costs. Several new bills which deregulate the Board’s power have been signed by the governor. Protecting the public is a phrase so commonly heard at Board meetings as to say it over & over is believing it to be factual. You feel lucky today?

Security is seldom a concern of the honest, I’m not a terrorist and really don’t know anybody that is even close to that definition. You know how that goes. So at the new Board Home the entrance is guarded by armed guards with a personnel metal detector. You feel safe going into the building. Although you notice in the long line waiting for entrance @ 8 am people are emptying their pockets and putting personal items through scanner. The lady in front of you has a fairly large metal necklace and the next person has a metal belt; no bells or whistles sound. Another administrative convenience bypass to avoid big delays. You feel lucky today?

Protecting the public starts with the laws put out by the legislative structure. Getting the legislature to understand that their orders are ignored may not equate rapidly enough to protect anybody except azbn staff. One of the major goals of this group here is to get the word to the executive branch that the Board is ignoring their orders. Many nurse interviews focus around ‘self will run riot’ at azbn. The Board does whatever it wants and the so called public protection laws are manipulated for Board convenience. New revised statutes  are ignored. What law? There is no law, just Randy Quinn & Joey Ridenour’s law.

  1. This statement could be converted to something more powerful as courts and court officers who ignore orders, as stated, create unethical events that can lead to disbarment. I’ve heard about this Board back east and to avoid Az for work, I will take that advice seriously.


  2. American Nurses Association responds to the defeat of the MA safe staffing Ballot question:

    “we are pleased that the Massachusetts voters soundly rejected Question 1.

    —Pamela F. Cipriano, PhD, president” WHO WOULD BE PART OF AN ORGANIZATION THAT IS AGAINST SAFE STAFFING PRACTICES, POLITICAL HACKS. !! Stop joining this group , paying dues to join and be a part of this !! Just like the corrupt board of nursing they protect hospitals , and do nothing for the nurse !


  3. A board of nursing who is there to make sure people with a license are giving safe patient care. It would make NO sense , that this same organization would be teamed up with a political group, who’s name implies they are an association of nurses who work together for the betterment of patients they are taking care of. It makes no sense they would be in with the AZHHA, too. ANd makes no sense that a BON would be against unions for nurses. UNLESS they are not doing what they are suppose to be doing. No room for politics. NONE.
    What kind of ANA would write a comment about voters rejecting to have saver staffing. ANA , AZNA is the enemy of nurses. While some nurses want to ‘work together with them for the improvement of the pateints , ” it will not and won’t work. The AZ BON and the AZNA appears to not give a two cents about nurses or patients , just collecting money , and making polices against them . Horrible organizations both of them .


  4. I have seen a few people who have been suggested to follow the ANA legislation for staffing.

    The reason we fight for a safe patient limit is because that legislation while looks good on paper is not actually useful for patient safety in application. There is NO accountability to hospitals with that legislation because there is no penalization process.

    In short the ANA legislation is a carrot 🥕 to wave infront of nurses to make people think they actually are for supporting nurses and patients… when in end it is weak legislation that allows hospitals to manipulate the process and allow them to maintain the status quo of staffing to their budget.

    Here is an example of what I mean. A travel nurse who worked in a state That already uses their legislative staffing methods… Illinois.
    She was smart enough to keep record of her experiences and she even went as Farr to try to get it corrected by the state… no change occurred… shocking I know.

    Still a hard #YESforSafePatientLimits

    And I will keep fighting with many other nurses until we are heard and make the needed changes to protect our patients.
    Following the AZNA is like driving off a cliff . 5% of nurses are members of the ANA , so 95% are NOT members . While the ANA AZNA does some minor representation of APRN’s and Nurse EXE the do not truly represent bedside front line nurses . Just a Medical Moneyball.


  5. The AZNA supports this Corrupt board of nursing , and they are SUPPOSE to be “Separate ” but obviously are not. ! Scratching each others backs. With the BON member of eight years being the AZNA lobbyist, KATHYRN BUSBY, very telling. As she could not be on time for a board meeting , by 0800am, and then again late after lunch. Late twice in one day, when it is brought up on many nurses “they were late many times ” . WTH? When Tory was exposed and ‘backed out ‘ ‘ quit” ‘replaced” or maybe still has her sticky fingers in the mix. The AZNA stating ‘this is what the nurses want ” WHAT NURSES ? your vote is corrupt as the election polls in Broward Cty.


  6. I have filed a legitimate complaint through the board of Registration in Medicine and can tell you that went no where. The fact that the BORN follows up on BS complaints while the BORM dismisses complaints with legitimacy is a big part of the problem in Massachusetts. While a Dr has to leave a wrist watch in your abdomen or assault a patient to be investigated and a nurse just doing their job is subject to investigation is troubling. Matt, RN Mass.
    This is happening in AZ in record numbers , and it is not just a nurse doing their job , but nothing to do with nursing in any manner shape or form and not illegal activities. Just a controlling board who thinks they rule every facet of anyone who holds a nursing license day to day activites or free speech. when your dealing with those who learned their behavior but running inside the sunday halls for how to run their own lives , and ratting out others who belong to this , gang of ‘reporters” they actually think this is normal .


  7. it’s extremely painful to bring necessary change to a corrupt system. The people who are courageous and speak up are targeted in the most vicious ways because those being exposed are sending a message to others that the same or worse will happen to them if they speak up. So far, this tactic by the medical mafia has been highly effective. The truth is if more can summon the courage to expose the corruption, the house of corrupt cards will begin to fall. The powerful will panic when they realize they’re becoming powerless. It is inevitable, they will begin to turn on each other in an effort to maintain their standing. That’s the moment when change is inevitable.
    I can only speak for myself, holding on to the secrets, looking the other way, and being an indirect player in the medical mafia is contributing to the harm and death of patients and painful aftermath families absorb. That guilt is worse than being wrongfully convicted on death row.
    If the depression becomes unbearable and a decision to end my life will also be the decision to end some of theirs before completion. I’m crazy, right? Damn straight.


  8. here is a perfect example of how Drs skate and nurses do nothing wrong and lose their licenses .

    GRAND JUNCTION, CO (CNN/RNN) – A doctor, formerly of Colorado, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of harassment and received a sentence of community service for dying his patient’s genitals purple.

    An online petition with Care2 is calling for Dr. Barry King’s medical license to be revoked in response to his October sentencing for the January 2017 incident. The petition has nearly reached its goal of 50,000 signatures.

    After a female patient accused King of dying her genitals purple as a “joke” for her husband, the doctor was immediately suspended without pay from his job at Colorado West Woman Care in Grand Junction.

    In court this year, the victim, a breast cancer survivor, told the judge that she went to the gynecologist because she was worried the cancer may have returned, this time to her genital area, The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel reports.

    She said, after her exam, King said her husband, whom the doctor didn’t know well, should take a look at the area. That night, she noticed a purple color on her toilet paper, which she recognized as gentian violet, a medication used to treat some types of fungal infections.

    The woman worked in an administrative side of King’s practice but said she hadn’t heard of that particular dye have been used for years, according to the Daily Sentinel.

    The next day, when she asked the doctor about the dye, she said he told her it was “a joke” for her husband.

    King was ultimately charged with a misdemeanor count of harassment, to which he pleaded guilty Oct. 26. He was ordered to complete community service and kept his medical license.

    Those signing the Care2 petition are asking the Colorado Medical Board to look more closely at the incident and not allow King to practice medicine.

    “In my mind, doing that to somebody’s personal parts is no different… than molesting them,” said Grand Junction resident Buffy Lake. “I’m very shocked he has his medical license. That’s a person that you’re supposed to trust, and that’s just way over the line.”

    Court records show King last worked in Louisiana at a military hospital. The hospital says he doesn’t work there anymore as of Oct. 31 but did not say why.

    A nurse can make an off cuff statement to a co worker , like they all do and Drs are the biggest abusers , but putting purple dye on genitals as a joke , is kinda ‘out there”.
