Most experienced medical personnel have probably heard the term, “Medical Mafia”. The term represents a state of mind that corrupts the health care system with lying lawyers, alteration of medical records to avoid litigation, ignoring medical errors, victimization of medical mal victims, manipulation of regulatory agencies like AZBN to destroy whistleblowers and anybody else that threatens their money train, promoting staffing shortcuts to make more money, and much more. Unlike the Mafia so many are aware of you don’t know this organized crime unit exists and is designed to make money and lots of it. The largest incidences of white collar crime is disguised as the most caring & righteous event you could ever hope to have, only to wake up irreversibly damaged for life. The new mafia lives well on our insides and the expenses are high when it comes to real quality.
All one has to do is check the AZBN website for the disciplinary action review and get quite the eyefull of alleged violations committed by nurses that have been disciplined. Some of the most egregious cases make it seem that many nurses are so out of control. Speaking to many of these nurses, at random, which takes a certain amount of persistent research as direct contact information is seldom available can bring the flip side into view. Many of the nurses have exercised their own values as well as the value of their mentors to end up on this disciplinary page and whose own story often is a long stretch from that viewed on this website. Information that is tainted beyond the reality of what actually has occurred is common. Why would a nurse who completed probationary stipulations in another state, be forced to repeat the same monitoring regulations in Arizona? Once declined and fuck off Arizona and go to another state, why would that discipline action remain on the Az. web page for better than ten yrs.?? The case was over in the previous state of Washington, and closed, so when a potential employer searches the web they find the Arizona review which carried the ‘out of state’ evidence in their deposition which the nurse refused to accept; case should be deleted. One of many cases that expose over regulation and under management. Where are the bad nurses?? The truth is well known but can not be handled.
The following is an older post but supports a long standing fact of the unequal disciplinary actions nurses are subjected to. There is a nurse right now helping herself to drugs meant for the patient. She is well known to be an addict, but slips by because she is somebody’s somebody. Sorry for its length, at the bottom actual decisions of AZBN.
It be us, the nurses in the field, to promote patient safety. Troubled nurses and physicians can be impaired; the % of complaints related to drug abuse and alcohol related issues is 38% of total complaints. 37.75% won’t help themselves and lie to the AZBN. Pay attention, it’s up to the nurse in the field to put a dent in this epidemic. Nursing in Arizona could be a governor’s campaign issue. Of course not D. Ducey, doesn’t care about nurses, or nurse abuse.
The actions and results of Auschwitz were well known from the start. Don’t know what it takes. To the one who saves one nurse, saves the world.
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.
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.

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.
The black population of Az is one of the lowest in the U.S. Can an answer come to us why that is? Many states are equal or about 20% black, with Washington, D.C. the highest with better than 60%. Az is less than 3 %. So when a black male nurse starts working in Maricopa county he would be considered a big fish in a little pond. Willie, Raheem Mangum is a well seasoned black, male nurse from Penna. who was reported by a patient for abuse, filed report several weeks after incident, which didn’t occur. Police investigation tossed the complaint out. The complaint was further advanced due to Mangums’ unresponsiveness, as he fled the state before being hung. Two years after back working in Penna. he was notified by Penna. that Az had revoked his AZ. license. He would claim the day he left Az., after he bought a house in Maricopa County and working four years, was for the specific reason of investigator Blake telling him she didn’t like black nurses. Being labeled ‘disruptive’, at a Board mtg he was escorted out by security. Disruptive for the experienced generally means being clear headed and speaking the truth. He says he wasn’t disruptive.
Nurse Mangum went home that day, packed his bags, and went home to Penna. The Penna. Bd put him on unrestricted probation, he is still working as a nurse. Scared to return to Arizona. “Its been bad enough facing racism but I also got the feeling I needed to be a closet heterosexual just to survive.” Willie says. “If I was gay as well? Tar and feathering?
There comes a time when there is a point which long term, deleterious public abuse will not be tolerated, this doesn’t want to apply to Arizona.
Barry Scheck, who took enormous bad hits for being on the O.J. defensive team, went on to define greed, stupidity and neglection of duty in 100s of other cases. A brilliant investigator whose solid integrity never stumbled. These levels of discrepancies rudely reign in and around the AZBN with demonstrations of false witnessing, witnesses with Alzheimer’s disease, imposters, and most importantly filtered through the corrupted attorney generals’ office.
We, as nurses are the largest group of workers in the world. The only administrative positive is the highly mechanized ability of the AZBN to eliminate the constitution. That’s a positive? It is for the Board. No doubt our group has a huge potential of addiction and drug theft which, if we could eliminate, we could also get rid of the AZBN.
The evidence of constitutional violations fills databanks but when the administration defines the power of the AZBN you just as well might fill out the paperwork long before the case has a chance with the truth. The stupidity of this paperwork is viewed with the genius of Bill Gates. The trail of corrupted governmental evidence is quite remarkable. How one has the balls to determine the outcome of a case in advance is the academy award for arrogance. How does Bill know this? He invented the technology in the back room, and the Bd is tracked through its own system. Easy to find.
There will come a time when that victimized nurse will break the assembly line abuse of good nurses who report patient safety issues, and it maybe at a high price. Somebody’s got to be watching the clock that is rapidly advancing on 12 noon, and take the public concerns to the street for the duel of a lifetime. Somebody has to do it. Who is that nurse? You?
“The once honorable profession of law now fully functions as a bottom-line business, driven by greed and the pursuit of power and wealth, even shaping the laws of the United States outside the elected Congress and state legislatures.” Retired Az Judge John F. Malloy.
There were zero surprises for those of us who’ve gone through the political process AZBN when this posting came online. Its annoying not knowing who it is. Perhaps it would be brushed off as just another nurses’ rant about political nursing, The lastest bad evaluations for the AZBN in social media makes this post more potent in that it defines volume, how many more??
Post From Rebel Nurse
OK guys and gals , anyone who has been to the crazy board of nursing office, and met with an “investigator” who pretends they don’t know what you are talking about, but has in their hands your statement ! Short term memory problems??? Ok so at the end of this waste of time, the ‘investigator ‘ says , do not talk about this to anyone, except an attorney that you have hired. I looked like , excuse me ? Looked as if I agreed, but got to thinking , this “investigator is talking with who ever they want, and I will talk to WHO EVER I WANT ABOUT ANY FACTS OF THIS NONSENSE THAT IS GOING ON AT THE BOARD OF NURSING ~!!!! How illegal !! Wow if that is a peek of what is to come, they sure think they can do what ever they want ! Rude awakening with this gal !
Well Missy, You are well on your way to being immune to their tear gas. email@example.com
The. first indication of the sexual exploitation of a minor in a recent sexual felony case against a nurse came through a complaint by a 17 year old male, the alleged victim. The nurse was criminally charged in Oct 2017. She was summarily suspended this month by the AZBN. The hard evidence maybe sexual texting, otherwise the courts still have the case which trial to begin in July 2018. No verdict as yet; although the sexual details of the nurses’ alleged actions are posted for the entire world to see. Brutality of the ‘innocent til proven guilty’ phrase. AKA TAINT THE JURY POOL.
The Bd this past Bd meeting brought forward the reasons for probation, monitoring and regulating the control of active nurses which is the routine answer of ‘public safety’ as well as stated by director Ridenour, ‘to reduce state liability from what a nurse might do’, which would allow a patient or their family to sue the Nursing Board. The rule in basic nurse training is you, and you alone are responsible for what you do. Even if you have a physician’s’ order you’re still liable as you should know what you are doing. Show us a case where family or a patient successfully sued azbn for a negligent act a nurse did and I’ll eat my shorts. Now if found not guilty of molestation, a defame case against azbn should be a slam dunk?

We want to believe our administration is there to help the public be safe. Believing in this secular Board is like living in a dream world. They simply have little understanding about nursing in the real world. The Agencies now are a mess and we really don’t specifically know why, although there is ample evidence in many cases of illegal activities. Many nurses are unnecessarily destroyed by this regulatory Board, and more importantly, many walk away and do nothing about it.
