Code Brown AZBN

If there is a single factor promoting nurses to advance on their education and get degrees after their names it would be for better pay with less work. The intensity of the workload in the clinical area has increased greatly in the past 25 years secondary to not only the increased acuity of the patients but the load of patients each nurse is assigned. The for profit industry has fought nurse patient ratio laws to keep profits up by reducing the availability of nurses. This view is not in dispute through out the real world of nursing. Many nurses who’ve moved on up to management and regulatory positions have avoided the horrors of code browns with the accompanying endless regulations created by those not tuned into code browns. I use this fecal festival event as not only first hand knowledge of this horror but the answers to interview questions that caused the nurse to further their education. So as odd as it may sound many nurses moved away from staffing positions and into management because their discomfort with cleaning and attending to patients. The very reasons they used to claim why they went into nursing. It would be a redundant topic for this page if there weren’t huge complaints about the present day nursing care that is commonly complained about by patients. Patients who’ve laid in feces for two days, even after the fecal festival was identified. Patients who never saw a wash rag or a basin of water through an entire admission. The list is lengthy of complaints that one would not have seen 25 years ago. Can an excessive amount of filthy patient complaints be placed in the lap of the AZBN?? The leaders got to be leaders because they mainly didn’t like patient care, it stands to reason when at a meeting you never hear a complaint of an extended fecal festival left unattended as our leaders aren’t concerned with nurse staff ratios and over working. Real nursing involves properly managering fecal festivals. And why is this never a topic, ever. Never addressing the increased infection rate? They’re controlled from the 40 billion dollar year for profit industry that wants that figure to remain as profitable as possible. Addressing the filth and increased infection rate costs money. 

The above opinions are based upon interviews with patients that were former nurses whom are known to make the worst pstients. Also the best assessors.

  1. There are many cases of poor nursing care not only in Arizona but everywhere in the U.S. The inability to care for ones own self is on the rise as the age of our seniors rise as does their numbers. Its not rocket science to get interviews with former patients and their family members. There are a bizillion stories of bad care, fraud, and crooked attorneys that is never ever carried by the contemporary news. Do Not Get Sick In Arizona!!

  2. There issues noted in this post are well known to patients that have had horrible experiences in Arizona; the ones that I know of refuse to be treated in Az and go to Calif.. Is it any better there??

  3. Better in Calif , just ask anyone from Yuma , they pretty much will tell you head west on 8 to Palm Springs if you want real medical care. Some fair way better in Mexico. Politics have kept competition out of a second hospital . The staff is either related or transient help. Most nurses leave as soon as the 2 years contract is up, Drs are in and out. Of course Krishna ‘s father staff Dr got on medical board ; which raises questions , how those Drs fair at the board . Still on staff ? dismiss, Protect the medical center. Even if is appears to be an over size morgue at times.

  4. Requiring nurses to get a BSN is pretty crazy. They do it to suck them in, got 6 years invested, hard to just move to a real profession , where you are treated well. Some of the ‘write ups ” are really crazy. People who move to any type of mgt , you cannot trust . They either speak the money saying nonsense or they do not have a job. They do not help because they do not know anything. They have to ask their stool pigeons questions before they can act . Meeting , feeding their faces, and blah blah blah , Always ‘idea of the month ” . It is isn’t how to give report , or aidet, or telling patients how to mark how ‘satisfied they are . Your right about the bed baths .Come in to work, how many patients are discharged the toothbrush not unwrapped, nothing used, 3-10 days. basic care is gone. New grads on phone flirting around playing ER drama queens bitching about patients attitudes while sending photos of their newest tat to everyone on the floor , and playing guessing game on a patients BAC. results . Everyone wears gloves for the entire 12 hour shift . who teaches them THAT ??

  5. When these board members meet up in their green jello meetings, snitch over heard randy Quinn (WRAP IT UP RANDY ) telling Paul Boyer , why don’t you have your wife apply to be on the board. Oh yea, a shitty nurse , whacked out thought process as Randy Quinn, time after time, needs to have his own type on their to protect his license and those who work in the same outfit. It is actually a pretty good deal for the temple heads. take someone like idiot quinn pay for his schooling grad by 25, work til 65 so you got 40 years of 10% of what he makes , then add 10% of wifee wages , who got her bsn at a byu funded school where mccormies runs her mouth, pretty good set up this business of promising an island, of course they never have to prove it the after life . pipe dream . Literally makes one wonder what makes these people tick supporting and paying money for what ? And if they don’t pay up , stay away until you do so, because you are not worthy . But to nurses you have stolen their careers from you aren’t worth sh*t anyways.

  6. here is what a citizen thinks of the OAH , just change the name or occupation to NURSE / NP and it is all right there , and SPOT ON !!! Instead of cabinets , the customer doesn’t like where the IV is, and you lost your job reported to BON , a witch cunt pursues , and lose your license .
    place at the ROC for their twisted ego’s!! Destroying lives DAILY!!
    And if you ask for a hearing…You have just wasted your time (and money if you hire an attorney!!) The hearing offices Judges are a complete joke and do whatever the ROC wants 100%, like a bunch puppets that they are!!
    If you are considering getting a contractors license in Arizona! Do yourself a huge favor and move on to the next state or do not bother!!
    They are as bad and crooked as it gets!!
    Example: Imagine remodeling an entire kitchen with everything brand new…including cabinets, sink, counter top, new microwave, new refrigerator, new dish washer, etc…
    And the customer does not like the color of the counter top! Files a complaint with the ROC! And the ROC along with the Hearing Offices makes you give ALL THE MONEY back to the customer for the entire job…INCLUDING the brand new refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, microwave, and cabinets!!
    Yes! You are reading right!! This is how crooked and incompetent the ARIZONA REGISTRAR OF CONTRACTOR and THE HEARING OFFICE IS!!
    But, it is time that they are exposed for what they really are!!

Once you are targeted they will create the crime, get people to perjure themselves against you, even break the law themselves to create their case. And the worse thing we have against us is purely the propaganda that the government has created that sets up the following:
    1. Any nurse/np with a board complaint is ‘bad” .
    2. Any Nurse who goes on probation is a druggie, or made a huge patient error .
    3. Must have done something wrong, or the board would not ‘act” .
    We all know this is NOT true even in the slightest .
    It is just hard to believe that an agency that is all about caring for others are such wicked turncoats just plain EVIL.

Not to discourage any of the ones trying, but this criminal case is spot on to the AZ BOARD OF NURSING !! Thank you for your kind words but it doesn’t work like that in the real world. My innocence is well documented all the way to the United States Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals to US Senators a few Governor’s etc…. The issue is what do we do when we are denied our Constitutional rights by the same people who swore oaths to uphold the Constitution and laws. In this day in age you have a much better chance of winning the lottery then a innocent American citizen getting the justice he/she deserves. So when Judges turn a blind eye to crimes being committed by Officers of the Court there is no Constitutional protection and remember this, it happened to me, why can’t it happen to you or someone you love?

Write up another offficer your employee file will be free and clear of any wrong doing. The AZ Certification board , is NOTHING like the corrupt board of nursing .

Code brown, calling nursing . The lawyers who defend nurses against retaliation cases of unjust discipline , never seem to prevail . At least since 1994 not one case at OAH has the corrupt board of nursing lost. Amazing huh? When these lawyers defending a male occupation never seem to lose . Nurses not only fired by licenses revoked . These cops rarely get fired , and almost never lose certification , amazing how that works ! AZ ! . . In late January, after an eight-day jury trial in the U.S District Court for the District of Arizona, Wieneke Law Group partners Kathleen Wieneke and Christina Retts obtained a defense verdict on behalf of their police officer clients.
    The Section 1983 excessive force case was brought by the estate of a 31-year-old man who died after an altercation with the police officers. Citizens called 911 for the man, believing him to be in need of medical care. The man fought with police, was tased, and suffered a cardiac arrest on site before being transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Toxicological results revealed the presence of a large amount of methamphetamine in his system, as well as a small amount of alcohol. Plaintiff sued four officers, and WLG was able to get one of the officers dismissed before the case went to the jury.
    The jury deliberated for one hour and 15 minutes before delivering a defense verdict against all police officers, absolving them of all liability.

Just imagine if a hospital had the reviews from patients as horrible as this board of nursing agency . 2.2 (stars average ) will subtract the suck ups and figure it takes A LOT for a nurse to complain about their governing agency so I’d say average in real time is 1 star maybe , but only because you have to give 1 star to post . Pretty bad ratings . If they were paid on satisfaction scores , they’d be broke but Ducey supplies them well with funds , what a waste of taxpayers money ! one big cluster Fk !! their website is confusing and their policies are unbending. It’s sad that a board that regulates understanding, hard working and kind individuals can’t reflect a single one of those values

    Each time I have called the AZ state board I have been helped in a positive manner.
    Wait time is long, however it depends on the time you call.
    Each individual has been very nice.

    Went today and couldn’t be happier I drove from Tucson. I moved from Minnesota and the ladies in the office were so efficient and helpful with everything I needed to complete for my license!

    Very rude. Must not be a happy place to work! No follow up. You must constantly send emails. Search “Complaints Arizona State Board” and you will get some very surprising information. Does not appear to be professionally run state agency.

    Horrible experience with the testing procedure for the CNA course. They do no recording of the test results, the test proctor used her husband as the actor and they totally botched the results to steal money from students. Nothing explains …More

    The Arizona Board of Nursing is a JOKE! Would give a negative star rating if I could. They should embody compassion as nurses are taught. Instead they NEVER answer the phone, and when they find it in their hearts to do so, they are rude and …More

    Lost everything I sent to them. Took days to get anyone to look. Still have not found it. Impossible almost to talk to a real person but that is not surprising since they are Gov. Employees.

    Transferring a CNA license between states is at least a 30 day process, which begins once they receive your paperwork. Seems a little bit arbitrary and drawn out. Things like this are why there is a worker shortage in the nursing field.

    If I could I’d like to give only 0 star. The staff on the phone was very rude. The only thing she did was passing the buck to others; she didn’t solve any problem at all. I was stunned by her discourtesy and lack of professionalism.

    Getting a hold of someone is impossible! Some questions can not be answered online and that is the reason for the phone number provided to call and ask questions that are not available online. It is ridiculous, I have been on hold for over an hour finally giving up. Do you job!

    Ducey needs to CLEAN HOUSE all the way around !

    Like

  14. in 2005 a male nurse willie mangum decide to do a travel assignment in AZ , came out from Penn worked at ‘county ” (same place Jokey Ridenour was working when she got the mgr job at AZ BON (her husband working for government / gov ) and left county took her stool pigeons with her , her crew to ‘group ” manage the bon ) . When Willie a black man went into the patients room a man from LHC yelled out “i don’t want no nigers for a nurse ” . When Willie stated this direct quote at the bon 2 years later when he found out he had a complaint , they kicked him out saying it was a threat . WTH??? Many lawyers instruct any nurse to write down EXACTLY what a patient states swearing or not . This crazy board will turn ANYTHING into a ‘threat ” . They are a threat to ever nurse ! 2005 , 2007 bon meeting , he left the state got out of here told Penn , they refused to prosecute . BON reported to data bank , which usually cinch’s the deal to put a nurse / np out of work for life . Penn said this was ridiculous and did not act. then 2019 !! yes, talk about STALE case , AZ bon got wind that another state did not agree with them. Now you know this nasty bd employees will contact them and try to get their way and every other board to ‘go along ‘ with them or THEY look bad. In court , 1/ 2020 this month YES FIFTEEN YEARS after the complaint , !! Willie asked Krishna if she or anyone contacted Penn bon, her reply “we have no jurisdiction over Penn ” . (didn’t ask you THAT miss, did you call them or contact in any manner ? “”” WE send information to the national Data Bank”” AGAIN avoiding ANSWERING THE QUESTION. Now the crooked judges at the OAH sham court , sun a shady organization , make it look like they are “getting to the bottom of things ‘ . a real judge would make the liar by deceit , ANSWER the QUESTION. Then Mr Willie said this is racist , and he filed an eeoc, which gave him a letter to sue AND passed it on the DOJ for prosecution. with JOKEY RIDNEOURS name on it. This one she cant flip onto the bon members . If enough nurse would do this simple act her name would light up the board and be thrown out on her *ss as should be . Oh and Jokey we know you have spies on here so do not think spreading a few blacks around the office , front desk smart mouth, bouncing bookkeeper boy, and now on the board . WHEW that made randy quinn upset , replaced by a woman WOOHOO . She will do a much better job than that biased creep any day, or at least lets’ hope the politics don’t cloud her thinking . Good luck Wille another unjust discipline by Quinn, this should teach travelers a lesson , AVOID AZ !!!

  15. heard about that one , went to meeting , so weird ! isn’t there a statue of limitations , i mean this is like MURDER trial . And that creepy looking investigator PETE , i am sure that a couple calls the L A would produce a record that is not shy of complaints ! Then Janeen Dahn , who is suppose to be Valerie Smith’s replacement in court and her side kick Emma , are probably the ones who contacted Penn . “we have to stick together, did you notice we put him on the data bank? ” when actually they are trying to put him out of a career and ability to earn money , so he can’t keep fighting . DIRTY bitches , Dahn is as swift in court as she was as a nurse (not ! ) .
