Jenny was the nurse that had been strip searched in a A SCOTTSDALE E.R. secondary to an order from director Ridenour of AZBN. The cam recorded file of that search was sent via male police cam.
All of the failures in this case continue on today as the foundation of drug addiction has no defense. If there is no success with methamphetamine do we need these kind of civil rights violations behaviors?
If there is a nurse whose momentary pain and or mental disorder doesn’t consider self medication, and does so, accepts themselves as the affected. At least for that moment will self medicate. There are no stats on this but many nurses will self medicate. Jenny and her case represents this fact as well as understanding how a school.of sharks pounce upon their own. When was random drug screening done last of those that run the Cando AZBN program?
The reminder of Supreme Court 1974 ruling that random drug screening is civil violation, and illegal. Jenny didn’t know who AZBN was when she handed her urine over that very first time. What if she said she couldn’t void and walked away? She is far from a falling down drunk. What if she didn’t return to work and in spite of anon complaints Bd demanded specimen?
Specimen accuracy should be considered before a nurse should ever submit. Signing waivers for employment should not be a detriment in random screening refusal. Wait til the end of shift and leave without submitting. This approach is when you wouldn’t trust the examiners; although their wagons will circle you. The defense shouldn’t have to be explained via Harvard Law…but it is the accurate evaluation that not all labs are equally accurate and many other factors effect accuracy. It is the blind and sober nurse who can test inaccurately that now defines a system that polices people first, Building a case against Jenny, who actually didn’t even have a parking ticket to start with, is a demonstration of the loss of the foundations of modern nursing. Toss the urine on the floor and walk away; or don’t be surprised if you test positive.
