    Hell’S Angels AZBN 

    Many years ago my Dad gave me a book about a motorcycle club as he knew I loved motorcycles. He said it was a very interesting story mainly because it was penned in the first person. The writer was actually a member whose descriptions of events were seen by him. My father called it credulous as the writer stood behind his stories. Although Hell’s Angels, A Terrible Saga, doesn’t equate to nursing it sheds enormous light on first hand knowledge carried beyond the shield that the public can not see. 

    Nursing must not be afraid of management and the governmental regulatory agencies which I do believe they are; so demonstrated by many interviews of nurses who were so free to tell me stories but not willing to be published. Why? One can only take phone calls and deflect bizarre communications that go down the road to destruction. The underground network connects to the courts where you can easily end up in handcuffs and behind bars if you cross any line they tell you not to. Patient safety DOES NOT MATTER. The first amendment is bought and paid for and not on a nurse’s salary. The nurse who discovers that the standard of care is egregiously violated and reports it, it had better be upon another nurse and not a physician, or hospital. If you decide to do that, as a nurse, you better have your affairs in order as your career as a nurse is over. Many of us here can support that this statement exists in Arizona. Without a doubt. I must say it was quite the Hell’s Angels’s ride through liars and corruption where you learn that the love of money is the root of all evil and the road to incompetence is paved with incompetence. The following article was the gold standard definition of incompetence by Lisa Wynn, former director of the medical board and the AZBN. All of the facts were documented and in evidence eight months before the unnecessary  death of 38 y.o. Elisa R. the mother of two and a husband. When incompetence goes unaddressed it reoccurs.

      How the fbi treated Michael Flynn is exactly how the Arizona Board of nursing administers their ‘justice’.

      Tucker Carlson Tonight said that the bureau continued with the probe until it “could invent a crime and crush Michael Flynn and in the end, that’s what happened.”

      “There is nothing worse than this. It’s how the secret police operate in Third World dictatorships,” Carlson said.

        How do We The People impress upon our employees (all, but most especially those in powerful, entrusted positions) that we will no longer tolerate corruption and/or incompetence, and that they must not only be able to but, in fact, will, indeed, fulfill their extremely important duties fairly and squarely… in keeping with their oaths of office and laws of this land?!
        Wrongdoers and violators who spoke solemn oaths to faithfully execute their duty to “support and defend” the nation against all enemies — but then subsequently refuse and fail to do so — must be held accountable, and their employment terminated for good and legitimate cause when and as necessary… pronto.
        This is a standard in any profession, industry, or business. There must be oversight, performance evaluations, investigations, and swift remediation and consequences for each and every impropriety evidencing misconduct, subterfuge, sub-standard, and, certainly, any unlawful activity.
        OBJECT TO, AND VOTE OUT INCOMPETENCE AND CORRUPTION! PRONTO! Bring attention to the ones who appoint this board, the unlawful director, and the ones who supply the corrupt prosecutors. They are ultimately responsible .

      This is true . You think you live in a country where you are free to speak your mind. When the “hell’s devils” at the corrupt board of nursing , think differently . Controlling, nazi ninja’s . Who knew the admin law was so dirty and allowed to prosper ? Described as Dishonorable , Unethical, and Immoral . It is a hard concept to swallow and those attracted to it are not in public office for protecting people’s rights. Don’t the other members at the nursing board see this ? A few seem too stupid to even know anything technical , besides gossip. Their “work” is setting up the future for their children and grand children to be that of ‘police state”. Communism . Just selfish , wicked thinkers. No surprise that mamaluey is attracted to admin law. From the big cheese state, that allows attorney’s to practice law without taking the BAR exam. She has to resort to clandestine tactics and pull others into her scheming and plotting , while trying to lurking in the shadows, of innocence, that ship has LONG sailed ! Only one who can be happy for her devious ways is Jo e Ride n hour .

      yes that is how they do things , ‘invent a crime”, manufacture a case, who would believe this , unless you see it for yourself. While the board of nursing state agency is trying damage control , using intimidation techniques, keeping the victim nurse suppressed, make people wonder how can any nurse question what was a super deal on a platter, while gaining support of other agencies, who are fools with no logical thinking.
      New nurses are hard nuts’ to crack, they want to get into nursing to help people , they are vulnerable from the get go , mostly females ,dutiful , lowest rung on the hospitals totem poles. Eventually if they become the next victim of the board, they start putting it together. Those who work their entire lives with no bd complaint, will never figure it out, unless they know a nurse well and trust what happened to them was not their fault and sees this board for what it is, corrupt !

      IF a set up like Michael Flynn can happen, who could possibly doubt a board of nursing could do this to a poor nurse ? Shame on them .””” Even the federal judge used Flynn to rail against what he saw as a treasonous plot. What is left in the wake of the prosecution is an utter travesty of justice.
      Justice demands a dismissal of his prosecution. But whatever the “goal” may have been in setting up Flynn, justice was not one of them.”””
      And justice is never the goal of the board, the ‘cases” are all over the place , corruption all the way !

You know exactly what you are doing wrong , you know your dirty little tricks, intimidation, attacking ones character , purposely , while stating many lies in your false investigations , that no real investigator would ever claim . DO NO HARM TO NURSES .! Cease and desist harming nurses , you are using your position as “the board of nursing” when you will be singled out and answer for your actions and be held accountable.

        got a clip from former friends who are still in az. (chl 5 cbs, i think it was 5 or 6 oclock news 5/4/20) . a nurse working st joe’s icu crying on the news talking like she is ready to ‘crack ” states her anxiety is “debilitating” and her mental health is affected by this pandemic . Now if the azbon down there does not pull her from work and psych evaluate her , all the cases of psych evals go out the window. Someone needs to get to her that the board of nursing takes all emotional moments and equates them with mental illness. And so does Elizabeth Campbell . We all know that the real mentally ill, cannot show emotion so therefore who is really mentally incompetent in their job ? It will be interesting to see if they contact her , cause she “looks like ” in the clip she is about to ‘crumble”. She can’t handle the pressure and family separation. And people dying with no family member present. If there was ever a sign of burn out , need to take time off , traumatized, she has it . They cannot use excuse none of them saw it. that would make them really illiterate, and show signs of turning their backs on any information. and of course (with eyes rolling repeatedly , public safety , is their concern) . A definite cry for help.

      many concerns those who have cases pending do not like this logging in, the board has retaliated through hoa’s , new jobs , getting those fired, police , security guards, won’t be posting due to loss of anonymously replying . many sites RT”S , DO”s PA”s , NP, do not post with info that is reflection of poster and for very good reason, same reason bd members/ azna log on , and read, without disclosure, been told comments will drop off, for that reason, highlight caption is good but not allowing posters anonymously to post whether they can figure things out or not . the dirty board has passed new rules they want where you work on your license now. (nursing is not like real estate and having a broker) it is more control over nurses, something they can write you up for not keeping it up . imagine registry who work all over and for different companies . So many things are not any of the boards business. passing on what thoughts of those who know the board reads and stalks nurses in every direction fb, non nursing jobs, etc etc , just fking control freaks this is one area felt safe, and trust the moderator is very closed lipped to even those who show up with false ‘good ‘ intentions. too taa loo

          Not one nurse who tells the truth, and says the absolute truth , is not interrupted, silenced, and not heard . A male,lpn nurse writes how the ALJ interrupted him several times during his CLOSING ARGUMENTS. Tammy another dirty judge. Like he says, it lost it’s affect, no reason other than to get the speaker to lose their train of thought, stop the message, and leave out keep points . Anyone who speaks the truth at the bon meetings is silenced , “we know your story’ “we’ve heard your story” . silencing, the verbal argument. changing the subject, ‘are you working now?” so they can get your fired from another job. If that doesn’t work dirty mamaluey will text the bouncers she has brain washed so they will act . And if McCormies letting out her signals and sighs about the “time” someone is talking , usually someone they don’t want what they have to say on the record , or others to hear it , cut them off . Like jack ass randy quinn telling a nurse of 34 yrs, “wrap it up you got 5 mins ” . unreal this creep , of course she is female and they are throw away objects, don’t need career. Thinking any amount of talking will be received , and allowed to give a full version of events is going to happen, nope . in writing , when some one down the road may read it and say, omg that’s is exactly what’s going on. yep in writing, as far as exchange, it is a one way result on their minds. anyone at the board is not listening only waiting until you get done to state what was prearranged. A lot will fall off if unable to post , anonymously until their case is heard in court. for the same reason w/o a union nurses wont speak up and picket when they get carried away with their bs like the bon !

        SOCIOPATHS:
        You can convince a person who abuses substance they have a mentally illness and they need help. But you cannot convince Sociopath’s that they are mentally ill and need help. What are the actions of Sociopath’s: they stalk what they consider prey (Prey: a person who is the aim of an attack, ridicule, or exploration, by a hostile person, or group of persons, or negative influence). Sociopath’s actions: they lie, they steal, they murder, they rape, they kidnap, they commit forgery, they alter documents, commit adultery, commit perjury, they tamper with witnesses, they play people against each other in order to maintain control. Sociopathy’s ultimate actions are to commit injury to their prey.
        A well know list of sociopaths: Jeffery Epstein, Ted Bundy, Bernie Madoff, Diane Downs, Warren Jeffs, Petersen, & his father David, McConkie, Ridgway. AZ predators- Symington, Peasley, Martinez, Antenoir, Velasquez, Miranda, Arredondo, Bundgaard, and the list goes on.
        Sociopath’s persona can be: Glib, lack of remorse, lack of compassion, lack of sincerity, self-important, convincing, law breakers, stalkers, manipulative, and shallow, they linger around the parameters of society and never allowing others to see their true character. Sociopathy’s do what amuses them, they stalk others, e.g.: calling personal references of nurses to prevent the referencee from giving a positive reference for that nurse ever again, (STALKING), they call employers, (STALKING), they call family members, (STALKING), they lie to get subpoenas so they can look into nurses bank accounts,(STALKING), get text messages, (STALKING), get emails,(STALKING), getting into positions of power, and using that power to threaten others. Sociopath’s call neighbors,(STALKING), convince people to harass nurses by subjecting us to aggressive behaviors, and intimidations, assaults and lies, convince cops to harass us too, and judges to harass us as well,(STALKING), convince so called mental health trash to falsify documents against nurses, (STALKING).
        AZBON has full time investigators who also work in medical facilities just so they can look into nurses who apply for jobs at their facilities, (a form of stalking). But let me make it crystal clear to you AZBON you calling other state hospitals of veterans and looking into veteran files is a federal crimes. YOU ARE STALKING US, LYING AND VIOLATING THE PATRIOT ACT. YOU ARE VIOLATING THE SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY OF THE STATE, AND YOUR OWN QUALIFIED IMMUNITY WHICH IS SUBJECTING YOU TO PROSECUTION.

          i disagree if you have not committed any violations that reading the absolutely astounding crazy talk written by valerie smith now janeen dahn and emma mamaluy , will not persuade the reader to think you have done many violations . when they write probation with so many stipulations, you have to double take to see if you can breath and take a shit and shave while on probation. So restrictive they know they can ‘get ya” on one. And when you do not want to give up your appeal rights and say fk you , you can provide all this nonsense I’m not living under your nazi nurse naughty nasty nerds party. So they write up you failed and make a long list. Anyone knows what they rights has so many lies and to think , that the average person, including nurses would not think your a real screw off , and makes them look bad is just poor judgement call. We know the board is nuts and out of control, but to someone who doesn’t know, it will put you in a bad light. A group of Drs , who are victims of the likes of Sucher , Lett dirty docs, are more cautious than the nurses so it goes without saying , it is always best to let them guess. The SOCIOPATHS is right on, the description of the board, only when they are violating many things they are not immune. the f t investigators are witch hunters, the investigation is just out of line. It is a focused targeted hit list . When they find a court proceeding from 20 years ago they only add what the defendant had to say to the file . Obvious they are not looking for any truth or protecting any public. that same lie is told over and over . “our main concern is for the safety and well being of our employees. ” IS there anyone who believes it.

        AZBON,
        I have a few simple request if you would; it is that you kindly budget for furniture, table manner courses, and dress code courses. I am simply sight sickened each time I go to the board meetings, or see one of your investigators in a public restaurant, and witness the severe need for these types of budgets.
        Larger Chairs: this furniture is to accommodate the Hippo sized asses of your investigator who constantly squeeze their large framed back ends into those tinny weenie flimsy chairs in your hearing room. It would also relieve any fears of us who sit directly behind them during the bimonthly board meetings.
        Table manner courses: this course would prevent the waitresses in restaurants, and others patrons who have witnessed the hog pen actives in public places and heard the loud grunting and snorting sounds as your employee’s stuffing their selves into booths and compete for the food with each delivery by the waitress.
        Dress code Courses: this course would prevent innocent spectators, sanctioned nurses, and two bit thieving low life lawyers for physical harm if a chair were to break, a zipper or button tears loose and fly’s across the hearing room, and you from a personal injury lawsuit. The sight of your investigators squeezing into their clothes is frightening, and having to look at human flesh bubbling over on human flesh is an awful sight.
        Kind regards anomalously due to fear of whistleblower retaliation.

Although it is not something I care to dwell on about anyone, i look at the person, but because it should bother them, and get others to take a gander , it is here for all to read. It is that same put on personality , that ‘little bo peep” I’m so innocent, fake front , when that dagger in your back has their finger prints all over it. calling employers to get nurses fired . How low can you whore’s go? I mean lawyers are KNOWN for being the lowest scum of the earth , but isn’t there some type of ethics this profession requires. ? Lower than a lawyers filth is pretty low , scum suckers.
          Oh they are certainly stalking , manipulating others . Surely in the past most nurses very upset of course understandably so , would suffer in silence , and never run into the hogs anywhere. Love the fact they are being exposed for what they are and what they do . It’s nurses week so this is something they can think about . The venomous snakes just continue on, odd they continue to do things they are not suppose to be doing, well yes , but hey it worked before try it again. Each investigator is not taught how to find out if the complaint holds any truth. They are taught dirty tricks of the diseased ones . When you read the sociopath comments , the reader has got to be saying, THIS is what the board of nursing is doing ? wow . It is all true. All true. Just like the meeting my former classmate attended saying ‘there were 4 armed cops at the BON meeting . ” the public has to be thinking, wow , is this a problem down there !

      AZBON,
      I have a few more request if you would; it is that you kindly budget for: Anti-terrorist course, PETA course, Swollen head syndrome course, Blow it out your deep end without stinking up the room course, Stiff neck and stone faced course, and the scratcher course.
      Anti-terrorist course: this course is for all….fat asses, skinny asses, boney asses, sad case of the gone asses, unschooled asses, networking asses, goodness of fit asses, and Jack asses, dumb asses, smart asses, illegal asses, and fat male asses with tiny whiny dictionaries, and know it all know nothing asses. This course should focus on terrorist prevention among staffers to reframe from tactics like lying, false documenting, threating and intimidation tactics, breach of confidentiality, and so on. The goal is self-explanatory.
      PETA course: this course is for your fat asses ONLY from the ASBON, AZ nurses assoo, and the AZ att. Gen. off.. This course educates on how to lay off the consumption of animals, and animal made products. The goal is over time have your fat asses become skinny asses. All the fat asses should cease consuming animal products, and turn in all products made from animals. Fat asses should be given flip flops to wear, flip flops make nice little slapping sounds as you walk across the floors. The purpose of this is to disguise the cracking sounds of the floors, sidewalks, and streets with a flip flop slapping sounds instead. The flip flop slapping sounds are less terrifying than the cracking sounds of floors, etc. especially in a multilevel buildings.
      Swollen head syndrome course: This course is specific to cranial diseases like the ice hole pea brains from azn asso (R. Schafer). This course covers swollen head issues, NOT mental illness, and it should cover cases where one obtains a power position and abuses the power with stupidity and ignorance. The goal is to recognize pea sized brains in oversized skulls, and that they are useless.
      Blow it out your deep end without stinking up the room course: this course is for your board members since they sit so close together for such long periods of time. This course should educate on reframing from beans, and cabbage products one week prior to board meetings, and sphincter controls. The goal is self-explanatory.
      Stiff neck and stone faced course: this course teaches those with good sniffers to disguise the fact they have caught wind of a blow it out your deep end course Violator. Jockey I will leave the training and curriculum to you since you’re a natural at stiff necks and stone faces.
      The scratcher course: this course is specific for those with STDs, this course teaches how to carefully and in a prudent manner scratch in public by diverting attention. The staff who should take this course are those especially like v. smithy who writes up investigative reports with sexually explicit details that no self-respecting human would care about unless they were into pornography themselves.

    Investigators/Attorneys AZBN 

    Its probably been two weeks since  a poster asked what we know about attorneys who represent nurses and AZBN investigators. In general terms I only know of two attorneys that represent nurses at the Bd. T.Sanzio, who is also a nurse I’ve spoken to on several issues and have seen her representing a nurse. I thought she would give as good as representation as any other, including K.Macdonald, but as she once told me, “This is a ‘monster Board’ and by the time I get it its already been decided.” Although there are some cases where an attorney can help I only know of one, which was a positive drug screen on a random test. The nurse had to submit evidence of random weekly clean drug screens for 2 months and present this to the Bd via an attorney. Costs were over five thousand because somebody smoked a joint at a party and forgot about it. However, the Bd commits so many violations of law and a good attorney might make a difference.  T. Scott King of Bowwlaw works both sides of the isle for big bucks who does pimpish chores for Campbell to harass nurses. I strongly suspect the cash flows well between these two. 

    Investigators I’ve had five different ones. Only one was a nurse who didn’t stay long at that job which seems to be normal. All reports were inaccurate, some were statements from police reports that were not ever presented in the jurisdiction court they were written in. This automatically classifys them as hearsay and in the real legal world can not not be used in another court. Some were 35 years old and in cases where I was never arrested or charged. All of this remains in the unethical circle until the investigator sends it to Beth A. Campbell who adds her own twist at the convenience timing of a witness for perjury with absolutely no collaborative evidence. By the time you’re sitting in Adm Law Court mail fraud has already been committed as the Assist Attorney General has already put a U.S. Stamp on these false documents and mailed it to you. The investigators like Linda Monas will burn in hell for false testimonies. 

    The advice seen frequently here that you asked for is don’t sign anything and say nothing. Many nurses are not guilty of anything except being hard nurses whose history does not reflect Board complaints. There are many. many violations of law this Board commits, but they get away with it. A nurse I know well received  a Banner complaint, went to Board meeting, called them crazy, was escorted out, packed their bags that afternoon. went back to their home state, worked for two years before having to answer to that complaint. Stuck to the crazies and received nonrestrictive probation from the home state and kept on working. Most cases the Board hears are well determined by robotics before you show up. If the evidence changes in your favor, you can not convince them as their minds are already made up. The outcome would seem to depend on the case, but don’t count on that. The best defense is to immediately leave Arizona and do not sign anything or speak to an investigator about anything. It will catch up with you but you stand a better chance away from these crooked creeps. And generally if you’re a decent nurse you’ll still be able to work through it.

    If your case involves pt. safety or administrational complaints which relate to physician producing income you need to avoid being tossed under the bus and get out of Arizona ASAP! Do not sign anything or speak to anybody.

    Sign overhead AZBN, “Please Do Not Confuse Us With Facts, Our Minds Are Already Made Up.”

    “When a witness falsely testifys, they commit to that lie as there is no incentive not to.” Peter Neufeld American Attorney.

I learned of this site years after my experience, which is why this group is trying to inform nurses before ever becoming nurses or considering nursing in Arizona.
      I started out angry, then sad, now with little feelings about it as I see this as God calling me back to walk close with Him again. I’ve learned that if I want God to forgive me for my wrongdoings, I must forgive those who have wronged me. Additionally, God sees all, knows all and will deal with the wrongdoings for me. Also, people reap what they sow. This lifetime is just a speck of sand in all of eternity and upon our death and life review with God , we will know and see immediately why this had to happen in our lives. There is tremendous power in remaining positive and finding a new normal. You are worthy. Needed, and loved…..do not let these people have you thinking any other way.

      Certain lawyers seem to have more favorable decisions. Which shows you how corrupt this board is. Greg Harris , taking clients to the Bon gets his way, as former lobbyist , whose main goal is to influence legislatures . Can’t be too hard , when the men’s prayer group turns into bills for the BON and against nurses . It appear Kelly McDonald exited from representing nurses at the BON, and for good reason. Can’t work both sides and expect to gain any followers. Robert Chelle who calls himself “rob ” , . seems like he is not really into defending. . He openly tells the board they are more punitive than most boards, (which proves our point ) . Non Aggressive . In fact none of them are . Sangio is probably the most, and will get complimented on her ‘good argument” that is just before the punch in the gut coming , usually from mcCormies who thinks she is an atty by blood lust , but is really a joke. Then there is Williams , David who will meet with nurses , listen for about 2 1/2 mins then tell the nurse, it will cost 10k. Basically you are buying a mormon who get favorable verdicts because of his association. Then Klink , another one who gets’ his way, another one who in a free consultation can tell you all about your matter in < 1 min, but when reviewing it hourly it will take a whole lot longer. Kinda Kinky Klink , just an observation with no basis , hunch like Quinn would do at the BON . A Scottsdale firm who 's description of what they do and how aggressive they are, sounds like a politicians dream sheet, but then the reviews are the pits .
      In stead of leaving the state I encourage all nurses , nursing students to never buy a license in AZ. Never ! If you have one, put it into retirement status stat ! And either go back to school for another profession or work in another state. Don't even work under compact, the AZ BON likes to call other boards and get them in "mind think alike " . And some are dumb enough to buy the it.

      Well Poo Poo, you must be an azbn lover. The only ones who should not have been licensed is that sow jockey and her pungent face husband. If you have any education and especially in mental health you would know its a normal response to fight back when shoved into a corner, lied on, and have your livelihood stole. What is not normal is to run when you have been wrongly accused with no evidence. Satans dimensions from the azbn have take the food off our tables, clothes off our backs and roofs from over our heads, as well our kids have had these things taken from them too. AZBN sits on their fat asses in chairs throwing their cow sized heads back and laughing after they do this to us. Speaking of Jews, a true Jew full of their faith and goodness does not do to others what the cow campbell does, I know, and you cannot tell me any different. These sadist creatures from the azbn like jockey are so full of self hate they think by playing others against one another they can maintain control, divide and conquer. They just did not bank on Amanda T, this site, or AM, and others who are fighting them, those of us who fight back are the ones AZBN hates the most.
      Any nurse with a long HX in the profession has had the opportunity to care for many, many faiths, many beliefs and many backgrounds, traditions, and heritage of people. We know all those we care for we learn from every minute we serve them. Its slim filled creatures like Sunita, campbell, and jockey who have no idea what it’s like to learn from those we care for or defend.
      Sunita, campbell, and jockey have abused the PATRIOT ACT by subpoenaing our emails, our bank accounts, and so much more. I full support anyone who fights back and if they call one of those creatures from hell a name, so be it.
      But I cannot support those who use their religion, their faith, their tradition, nor their race to harm others and innocent.
      So suck it up, fighting back is normal, even when words are used.
      DO NOT SPEAK TO THE AZBN, THEIR INVESTIGATORS, AND DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING….THE ACTIONS OF sunita, campbell, and jockey CAN BE CLASSIFIED AS CRIMINAL.

      Sure seems normal to want to tell everyone what these nerds did to good nurses. They have sent out supeona’s on the email carrier. This is what they do, call and tell you there is a complaint at the board of nursing and “they can send it by email if you want it now .” so you give email address to them , and they supeona, all of your records.

      A site with First Amendment Rights, maybe the AZ board of nursing and gang can learn a few things.

      Another tip for nursing students , do not contact the AZBON and put in a complaint on the board site, about the nursing instructor. The board is so spooky they collect IP addresses , (and WHY?) good question ! For a fact , the AZBON will contact that instructor and tell them ” we’ve got another complaint about you, and read it to the instructor !! Some get calls every 3-4 months. (NOW if this bd is for public safety why are they reporting the reporter and not investigating the complaint !! ) How many nursing students were retaliated by bad instructors who found out illegally . How many did their grades suffer, they were attacked and fabricated things in clinical. Some of these instructors will attack anyone who makes them look bad. And a lot are guilty of treating students differently and not fair . And based on their cult attendance . In fact in smaller schools who worry about having enough for a class , like Safford , surely they recruit from the areas they hang out 95% of their lives with their own kind . Is it any wonder the instructors act like partners with the board ? The AZBON certainly does not want any instructors telling students anything bad about them, in fact they make it mandatory for them to attend the meetings .

Look at the so called frumpy butt “experts” who are low lives , sociopaths with an ink pen , screwing the nurse over with words like , ‘somewhat defensive ” . who would not be?. or “defensiveness” , guess the nurse is wasting their time to explain what really happened to these over paid kooks, with initials. All hand selected and partners in crime with a dirty director ! Don’t go to one of these kooks either . Just another ‘law ” on the books that that AZNA came to bat for the bad board.

      There are a few of the lawyers who come to the board on occasional basis, they see that no matter what they say,it won’t make a difference. exact words of one. And why is that ? Is it because it is all predetermined what will take place at the board ? That the legal malpractice advise has already been determined. Maybe educated attorneys, won’t bother, they won’t suck up and do what is expected of them , bow down to a bunch of old hens who just like to hear themselves talk . While nothing is coming out , and do not listen when someone tries telling them information, usually something positive about the nurse. They just sit there thinking of something to counteract you statement with . Basically too stupid to educate. While abusing human rights .

NOBODY…and nobody said stop warning others or fighting…….but let me repeat myselfagain…..filthy dirty name calling and talking about womens pubic hair as carpet…that’s not only disgusting and unprofessional but downright just portrays you as a special kind of stupid.

      Be angry, fight back, warn others …but for God’s sake do it with tact and class!

      Everyone responds to life experiences differently..not one better than another.

      Anger and bitterness that continues over years not only sets a person up for lifelong unhappiness, it is the very food that grows cancer. .

      as I have progressed thru this journey, not only have I been told by friends, family, clergy, and counselors ” to get over this”….and believe me…getting over this does not mean I wont think about it every single day until I die..it means I have learned things along the way like how else to view this, other perspectives..only trying to offer something other than anger, hatred, rage and bitterness to the next victim of this azbon.

      We all see on tv , these nurses who are going to “help out another state”. Is that their motive , or just their excuse. ? First of all they are NOT volunteers, the majority of them if any going to make money . They are getting paid 10k a week . They know they have to work 21 days / 13 -16 hrs day, straight, Any nurses knows this is not safe especially under the conditions of worried about catching the virus, leaving children at home, being in a different location, not knowing who you are working with or for, sleeping in strange places, jet lag, and shortage of ppe ++. And the fact that cheapo save a buck hospitals are calling them off in AZ, based strictly on census not acuity , encouraging them to take vacation pay and stay home, cancelling them. So work dried up in AZ , they go to NY make big bucks, so when they come back after being on an air plane and around the sickest of the sickest are they really going to quarantine for full 14 days, how much stress are their children under with them being gone and when they come back are they going to get a quarantine hotel room, and protect their children , talk to them through glass ? And if not , is this unprofessional conduct. If they come down with virus will AZ hospitals tell them you got it in NY ? we’re not paying . What kind of mind frame will someone be in who is with a team who tells them which one lives and which one we won’t get a vent to, and watching the numbers of deaths and body bags going out with young , old patients and former co workers . The news is buffaloed into calling them hero’s . Hero’s or martyrs ? Is this really the best decision for their lives right now, and the citizens of AZ , who have no control over these people bringing virus’s back to them , Go back to work in a hospital setting where fresh surgeries are opening up . hero’s , enjoy the fame , it is always short lived for nurses.

      Not sure real friends would tell a person to “get over it” . Like your career, your reputation, just take it. Basically the victim nurses of the dirty board and investigators , discusses their matter out of disbelief that this is how the ‘system ‘ works . Discussing with a real friend is a form of counseling. Since you probably don’t trust real (aka hold a license /counselors) after being screwed over by a “expert ” , your true friends or someone who has been through it can help you realize , this is the boards way. Bringing the diseased minds to light will destroy the bacteria festering. “get over it means they tire of hearing about it, realize they can only listen to the same thing over and over so much . Find like victims and share what you know.

      Any insight on why if you have a nursing license you are not suppose to have any disputes, no disagreement with neighbors, no family matter disputes , which are very common. No discussion with your landlord, or hoa, or any argument with anyone who wants to give you a hard time. Can anyone explain why nurses dare not speak about any problems going on in a relationship with someone who does not want to break up . Why things you said in a text in a personal message are BON headlines, yesterdays, grudge holders , nasty neighbors who want to give report to BON in anticipation to make you ‘get in trouble ” like they are some kind of disciplinary nun with a ruler . Seems like they are dictating you entire life, sticking their nosey ways into areas that are quit frankly none of their business. A dui is not part of nursing , but is a poor decision. So is not managing your money. How many board members/ nurses have bankrupt on their record, gambling addiction , porn watching, bounce checks , pay bills late unresponsible , smoke cigarettes, go to bed with Drs who are married , have sex with someone other than their spouse, Why are these habits off duty not patrolled by the board of nursing .

      here is what a real psychologist says , about narcissist’s , if this isn’t how the az bon members and the entire agency who joins in, and da’s . This may answer some questions but certainly others need to chime in. Don’t take time away from your cases , just a quick comment what you can do to help this person discover what makes them tick, they are literally crazy . This is so ‘right on the mark” to how the azbon operates. 2 can play the game. Just do it for public to see, like they do .
      WHAT UPSETS A NARCISSIST ? Losing control. You can find this out for yourself the second you take control away from a narcissist. You will be astonished at the underhanded cruelty they will employ in attempt to get you back under control (or discredit you completely if control isn’t possible). If they can’t control you, they will usually try to control what others think of you. The narcissist’s extreme behavior at this stage usually reveals how disordered he really is – normal people would cringe to air their dirty laundry in public and feel very uncomfortable “taking down” a fellow human. Not the narcissist and his flying monkeys (the people he manipulates to maintain under his control and attack the victim).

      This is a pain for a narcissist because, depending on the behavior of the victim and the integrity of others having knowledge of the situation, his mask will start to slip. It is very difficult for him to keep his story straight, and neutral parties will definitely notice that his approach to the situation with the victim is not normal. Therefore, losing control of the victim, followed by the inevitable smear campaign and gaslighting, creates a potential for the narcissist’s mask to come off and his carefully constructed world to come crashing down. {This is why the azbon has tried everything they can to stop the spread of truthful news, reports, why they have sent ‘insiders’ to infiltrate this group . Be very careful giving any information, anything ! and those who post adding words like “we” . There is no ‘we” , there are plenty of nurses have been done dirty , go find them , you won’t convince this one, you have any good intentions at all, and who can spot a snake a mile away}

And gets them to dramatize. it . That description of narcs is Emma the ring leader, is right on the mark. While hurtado is more rabble-rouser . she has been there so long she knows EXACTLY what Ridenour expects of her and it is nothing that someone of high standards would put up with for a minute. I am guessing she gets a nice Christmas bonus and presents, to keep her silence what really goes on. And one of her relatives does the house cleaning .

      Hurtado, has no degree no formal education and has a low rating for credit supposedly. But yet she is a senior investigator ? Intake triage , laughable really .! Any decent hospital system would never hire her . Mayo won’t hire anyone with bankruptcy. And for good reason. Gutierrez has bankruptcy and not years ago either . Anyone who cannot manage their money, or has problem paying bills, what is the reason do they have addictions ? gambling , drinking, what are they spending it on , supporting a dead beat man, who knows ? Filing also erases the debt so that is stealing in a way. You won’t borrow again for a long time. Anyone who is around patients needs to be looked at , they will steal from the patient . Make themselves beneficiary . Especially home health. and it has happened. If Hurtado is dragging statements out of someone on the phone, or putting key words into their mouths or just making stuff up , she is stealing licenses . And how does she get rewarded for this ? promotions and well possibly some ‘tip jar money . Better be putting that in your financial report Robert, you have the initials that can put you away.

      The corrupt board of nursing and staff have a plan and got this on the books, in order to appeal a board decision (that the da told them what to vote on ) you must apply for a rehearing and time frame it is short. Most nurses are not lawyers, and do not realize the requirements , it does not matter because no matter when you say, what your well thought out argument is , the decision is in. Rehearing , denied , not happening to them . Basically this requirement is there to give the board heads up you may be headed for appeals court . (a step you must take which was put into law by none other than the dirty board and attorneys ) It is like telling a hospital you are going to put in a complaint on them . Some one will come out and give you a free lunch pass in the cafeteria while the back room is makes big changes to the record. “doctoring them up ” . So it is merely a heads up to the BON, and of course they add more BS to the record, and write a huge tainted version of the truth and post under your name .

BSN, hospitals are requiring in some areas, get you really in debt and they got ya. I hope others who have been victims of the corrupt AZBON will give a few words of wisdom to the new grads. No money in the card, just , some sound advise for anyone thinking about buying a license in az . Here is my advise to the new grads.
      Congratulations . It is not easy and is something you will guard is your nursing license. A huge number of nurses worked for many years then became targets of the corrupt board of nursing . The very best Grad gift , I can give you is to tell you to not get a license in AZ , and if you do not listen, 1) buy license protection immediately lots of it dont let it lapse 2)read up on what the AZBON is doing and how you can make changes in laws to benefit you on this site . (lots of reading) 3)azna is not for nurses better to start your own real association for nurses . This is the truth, and again best graduation present you ever got ! <1% of nurses know how the bon operates , listen to those who know. Not your instructors who are being licensed by the board, so they can avoid bedside and first hand knowledge 4) NP is flooded and they get BD sanctions too, 5) If you do ignore what we learned first hand, and decide to do it anyways , because you are careful, your mother was a nurse and she didn't have problem, the BD told you we are rebels, you have to find out for yourself. Please work on a second career, do not allow yourself to be set up to lose it all and cause yourself to have a lifetime of lies by the board of defaming character . This is the best graduation present anyone can give you , don't take it lightly .

        I wonder how many women that heinous repulsive slim raped? As bold and in your face with his sexual predatory activity, and his attitude, “I CAN DO WHAT I WANT AND NO ONE CAN MESS WITH ME”, I guess he thought he was untouchable. But look, it took those women from the Maricopa county attorney’s office sticking together that brought that slimy MF’er down. I wonder how many so called Christians boys at the Maricopa county attorney’s office watched that predator commit these crimes against women and laughed about it or wish they were him so they could get away with what he was doing too. Every dog has their day, and that two bit MF’er Martinez got his. I cannot wait to see what that slim ball snatch Paul Peterson gets from ARKANSAS. News reports have said AZ & UT are going to cut him a deal, but ARKANSAS don’t slim balls like Peterson. Kirshna & Campbell your day is around the corner.

    The Criminal Mirror AZBN 

    Most of the comments here are the responses from experienced nurses who’ve been through the disciplinary process of the AZBN. The volume of circulation of views isn’t posted but is about 10x more than when the page started 4 years ago. What this means electronically is that the page ranking is elevated enough to produce more search returns on words and or names on this page. Therefore when posters use names like Ridenour, Campbell, Milhasky, Greabell, Sutter and the list goes on forever, the search engines returns this location, and often on the first page. The recent post about horrible state integrity, probably involving propublica at some point, defines Arizona as  a total failure in state government integrity. The investigators have been informed, with collaboration, of the crimal activities of Beth A. Campbell, Diane Milhasky and J. Ridenour, just to name a few.

    The criminal behavior of state’s regulartory agencies is well known and reflective in the study. The Radonda Vaught case, the BSN nurse at Vanderbilt’s Hospital who gave a paralytic instead of versed and was cleared by the Tn Board, is the catalyst to move governmental unethical behaviors into the criminal environment. The fed easily figures and proves colusions to save hospital loses. A fact many Arizonains are well aware of.  Vaught is scheduled for jury trial in July. Her lawyer, at arraignment, was actually ignorant enough to declare her innocent as the Tn Board had cleared her of any wrong doing. The statesintegrity study declares just 11 states with passable grades. Although there are many states fighting to remain at the bottom of immoral governments lists Arizona is pure in its corruptional standards by allowing Assist Atty General Beth A. Campbell and judge Milhasky to do it repeatedly under oath. Their actions are the acts of unethical governmental officials but also are criminal.

      The Administrative Law Court is generally joke according to my attorney, along with the ALJ’s . The entire set up is a scam. Send the case over to the OAH, so it has the ‘appearance ‘ of being a separate agency with no connection or reason to be biased. . In my recent case, the ALJ and it was Diane , disagreed with the Board. Maybe she is getting nervous, close to retirement and all . So rare I think it is the only one. So in that matter Campbell lost. she recommended the board, accept the withdrawal of my license , Campbell doesn’t want to keep fighting when a lawyer is involved , and she certainly doesn’t want to end up in a higher court, where the judges are not impressed she is 1 of hundreds of attorneys at the atty gen office . She doesn’t want to get out of her comfort zone. At OAH, all she has to do is get on the elevator and the board is right there . Now the board does not have to accept that recommendation, and certainly the prosecutor has no business suggesting to the board what she agrees with or not. Another Nurse of long term service , can’t get away from Arizona and the crazy nursing board.

In return is appears he is expected to let mormons get what they want whether it is soc sec disability , and deny all none mormons. Take care of their own, how ‘religious is THAT?” More corrupt than a ALJ’s in other areas , in his case a cult.

      Now, the repentance process depends on the situation. Mormonism upholds the idea that “where much is given, much is expected.” We also believe that the nature of the covenants a person has made affects the situation, too. So if a person who breaks the law of chastity is young and has not made higher covenants in the temple, repentance is easier. The youth can confess to the bishop, forsake the sin, try to make restitution as possible.
      Yes the bishop is the one who makes all the decisions . BUT :
      you know it means we are held responsible for what we have. If we have been blessed with talents, wealth, knowledge, time, and the like, it is expected that we benefit others.
      Taking away ability for NP, to practice their profession is against their own teachings. There fore it is ALL about money .

      Be great to have a featured section of the board members, my uncle did his own research. He went to Banner Thunderbird, with chest pain radiating down his left arm , classic for follow up, the NP was asked several times if he needed to go to the ER, she said no, ekg was done no results were given to him. The NEXT day, he went in with same pain, and was 100% blocked. Negligence, malpractice . It took four years to get to the board, on the list of cases, like they were hoping he would just forget about it, or die . Then he looks up who made the motions (motion to dismiss , it was BOYER !! What the hell does SHE know about cardiac events , chest pain in adults, and ekg ‘s , she is working as a ‘preceptor” in pediatrics AT Thunder bird Banner. Too obvious this person , another “BETH”. is protecting Banner . She did not even rationalize her answer , just immediately motion to dismiss . Then uncle tries to say something and he was hung up on !
      What is a non clinical pediatric nurse (ELIZABETH “BETH” BOYER) doing making a motion to dismiss a cardiac event in an adult ? Predetermined, if not persistent it would not have been on the list of cases !

      In 2009, Officer Edward Krawetz of the Lincoln Police Department arrested Donna Levesque for unruly behavior at a casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island. While seated on the ground with her hands cuffed behind her, Levesque kicked Krawetz in the shin. Krawetz responded by cocking back his right leg and nailing Levesque in the side of the head, knocking her over. In March 2012, Krawetz was convicted of felony battery despite his claim that he kicked Levesque in “self defense.” The 10-year sentence he received was immediately suspended, and Krawetz was ordered to attend anger management classes.

      But he wasn’t fired from the Lincoln Police Department. Under Rhode Island law, the fate of Krawetz’s job as a cop rested not with a criminal court, or even his commanding officer, but in the hands of a three-person panel composed of fellow police officers—one of whom Krawetz would get to choose. That panel would conduct the investigation into Krawetz’s behavior, oversee a cross-examination, and judge whether Krawetz could keep his job. The entire incident, in other words, would be kept in the family.

Numerous means he had a pattern, and was so hated, once he was caught and put in jail, the citizens broke in while jailers who hated him did nothing , and hung the sob. But yet the brain washed followers keep on praising that slime ball. Kicked out of many states, NY, Missouri , Gov ran their asses out, and ended up in AZ , where the Gov caters to them via Koch brothers . Remember this at election time, and who the AZNA supports (one who will carry on this corruption ) .

      You have to look and may still not find a honest judge in AZ. That is the bottom line, Atty Gen do not ‘win’ cases , it is just corrupt dirty unethical judges who shame the profession . There doesn’t seem to be much public outrage that the justice system is corrupt.” The corruption cases have detracted from other serious problems in highly politicized courts. “People now ask only if a judge is honest,” atty said. “It’s not just corrupt judges, but inept and lazy ones that are the problem.” Indeed, corruption convictions have become so commonplace that they create little stir in AZ . There is a dreary sameness to accounts of SHAM hearings. This will be the judges who helped the AZBON, story to be told :: the convicted judge pleads for mercy, saying he has learned his lesson. They think they are an exception. He said he had lost his position, his pension, his self-respect and license to practice law. “Former friends walk on the other side of the street and don’t call,” he said. “My children wonder why some of their friends don’t play with them anymore.” Yes this is the final chapter they will be saying. Everyone rat each other out trying to get the best plea deal .

I thought twice about it, but then hey, if she can do this, they let her see how it feels to be exposed for something unrelated, personal, even if true or not people will wonder . I see it is not accepted by some, but the reason for posting is something she should be expecting. “when you attack someone EXPECT some back lash. ” She stirred many hornet’s nests. The one comment she signed off on, a homosexual male , is probably the worst possible thing you could say about a man.

    Defendant Integrity & AZBN 

    Many defendants, and not the chosen AZBN word of respondent, is defined for those whose careers are on the chopping block as defending yourself is what you end up trying to do. There is an advantage that every defendant has and that is you are probably the only one who knows what the truth is. You know whose lying but generally are clueless as to why until one day it dawns on you that the AZBN needs you so they can get paid a salary with benefits. The image that they are protecting the public is plainly a joke. How could they actually convince the present day public that their mission is to protect the public when so many. many nurses are aware of their deceitful practices of intimidation, posting inaccurate non-public documents, suborning perjury, perjury tampering with evidence and just being an obnoxious and expensive government waste? The only person who can protect the public is the nurse in the field. The nurse at the bedside knows the truth and the AZBN knows politics, money and job security. Without that nurse to discipline they are nothing. They go through better than 5 million dollars a year clobbering nurses that half the time are merely humans trying to protect the public. Arizona nursing care is doomed if this organization is allowed to continue to break states laws and violate civil rights. Horrible just plain horrible.

    Anybody who lies about a nurse or lies to a nurse is a fool. We see right through you. Unite and for the truth in nursing!

      I know too well of the hatred spewed out by the AZBN who claim they are protecting the public. Really??? By destroying the livelihood of the nurses that have spent hard earned money to work in the profession of their dreams? To wait until they come to AZ to destroy all the good they have done?? Why is it that nurses must come to AZ to be humiliated at the hands of these pompous frauds. That head male idiot should be on the other side so we as nurses can line him up under fire. Quinn and Mul-drone both should be subjected to their own “laws”. She has the audacity to have a real estate company built with the money earned destroying the lives of nurses. There is no justice with AZBN. The public should be made aware of just how much they are NOT protecting them. Anyone can provide a false allegation or a complete lie and watch these frauds go into action manipulating and de-frauding the facts to make the nurses life hell and claim it’s all in the name of protecting the public. The public needs to be protected from AZBN. Try contacting the Governor who should be able to do something and he turns a blind eye. It’s all about money. Just think how many PPE’s could have been purchased with the money these liars received for destroying a hard working nurses life.

      Lots of good information.-posts. Someone new to the board and looking at how they do “business as usual” , have a lot of catching up to do . The board likes to over step their boundaries a lot. It occurred to me that nurses think if they sign probation, it will end when their “time is over “. Keep in mind when you sign the paper , you let the board off the hook . Ever notice how they always want to jump on voting a signed consent agreement in. The person has signed , giving up rights to due process. Some feel they must sign to keep working, and don’t want to take a chance losing their license. Some think , they will do probation and that’s it , over , without any thought at all they will lose their license anyways. Not that probation is violated, it is just the stipulations are ones no one can do and being under the pressure of being ‘watched” like a nursing student again. You will make errors or the board , con artists will call and call the supr until they give them that little tiny corner of a hint something happened. That is what they are looking for . Don’t believe the lying board members , it would please me if you got through probation and were successful in your career. NO! , these, known critics , looking for dirt, anything to make you look bad, to make their jobs look like they are doing something are never sharing in joy in any accomplishment you have . It is all about them. Do not trust them . Especially one who can look you in the eye and tell you BS like that !

      What kind of God do you know or would want to worship that would want you to ‘ dish out extreme injustice ‘ to your fellow man? Do these religious cult members (Mormons) really think they are earning favor in God’s eyes by ” screwing over the innocent nurses thru their perverted justice system”?

      Do they really think having zero integrity and operating in their evil ways will serve themselves in any positive manner in the ‘after life / eternity ‘ ?

      The most and best they could do at this point is to repent, be an impetus for immediate change and justice, and right their wrongs…if not perhaps they need to pick the real Bible up and read about God’s wrath and the Eternal Lake of Fire….and how living there for eternity will be like.

      Shame on these wretched, evil people and their vile ways ..destroying the hard work and reputations of innocent nurses….how can their thinking and logic be so distorted between right and wrong? And how could the sickness grow to the magnitude of so many people, offices, the cover ups???

      Just plain unimaginable and unfathomable!

      They are brainwashed. Imagine raised from birth and hearing some “authority figure ” up on stage yelling ROSANNA ROSANNA ROSANNA . Then taking a hanky and ‘wave it like a helicopter” . Dirty old while males, who want to have sex with young girls , and more than one. Pick up any book of those who are damaged mentally , still struggling , but know what they were told was all LIES. The dutiful women on this board go along with the LIES, who why wouldn’t they go along with the lying witnesses , it is obedience , hand maidens. You think they have any say so in their own households, when some male reminds them they are second class every chance they get. They think , they are the only true ones so none of them can do no wrong. They even defend the killer Derek Brown , who slaughtered a man then the mormon rode off on his bicycle. He has never been punished, hiding like the coward they are. And the killer cop, mormon missionary . All about money. And some promise of something they can’t prove. Just like the how the board is run no proof of anything, everyone one of the nurses is a liar, don’t trust them, must be punished . Mormon females have learned the evil looks , the disapproving , to be judged by one of them is just sickening to say the least! Ducey is dictated by Koch, and guess what they are . Sad state of affairs, that is for sure. I do believe they question their ‘teachings ” but know the outcome if they were to speak up . Gutless except when in their board chairs knowing their audience is some beat down , unfairly treated, vulnerable nurse .

      So I guess these perverse evil Mormons will count their money on their trip to hell…God is not in hell..goodluck with that….they WILL get what they deserve unless they repent and turn from their evil ways and seek forgiveness….

Sound like a bunch of old hen’s cackling , like prosecutors , bring up crazy stories , that are so old , no one could remember . Ignoring any success and tear the nurse . cna apart. Notice the ones who stick and continue to work there are the nastiest. Friend of one of the investigators , said Michael Pilder , quit . I would imagine he would get a little sick of the hen pecking , small minded meddling women, who enjoy making someone else’s life hell And what is expected of his job, to search out dirt on hard working nurses. Of course if he is going to continue his career in nursing in az he won’t burn the bridge, since they are in charge of his career, even if he were to do nothing wrong.

Seems to be a turn over, the ones who stick at the ones who are willing to join in childish games and dirty work. And lazy let everyone else do the reading and you just “aye ” . Let’s see how long it takes Fountain to figure McCormies out , and her motive to be the President of the Board, and how A F reputation will take a dump, and how she got talked into it , after R Q approached several of the others , he had to have a shoe in, time will tell the whole tale eventually .

      Something I want to share , and was tricked , into signing, you get to that point when you want to get the fk away from the evilness and be done with them . But unfortunately it only lead to a downhill disaster . Do not sign those consent agreements with the corrupt board of nursing. You are letting them off the hook. In many cases there is no case. Along with signing lies, which then makes you an unprofessional, you give up appeal rights due process. And this is the statement you must sign . It is Sign or Revoke , either or . Of course signing you can lose the license and your rights . Don’t let these dirty bullies at the board, intimidate you, or defame your good name .
      This is what is written on the consent agreement . “Respondent agree to and waives all rights to hearing, appeal or judicial review relating to this matter . Respondent further waives any and all claims of action, whether known or unknown, that respondent my have against they State of AZ , The Board of Nursing , it’s members, offices, employees and or agents arising out of this matter . “””
      (atty comment :::”ANYONE THAT WOULD SIGN THIS IS A FEW COOKIES SHORT OF A DOZEN , OR INCOMPETENT” .

      a trick, scare tactic, something a dirty lawyer would tell you , you have to sign . Now, bear in mind , if you do not sign, they will revoke stating that you are and will never be able to be regulated . Sound like animal farm ? It is !

Yes, put your life on the line to make ROBIN (fake nurse) proud !!! right ! who would ever join this group and listen to this nonsense , only board members , more fakes .

      Dear dedicated and brave nursing professionals:
      We are reaching out on behalf of the Arizona Nurses Association (AzNA) to let you know we are thinking about you, support you, and stand with you during this exceptionally challenging time.
      The world is experiencing a historic public health crisis and nurses are stepping forward to do what they do best: care for patients and save lives. Many will never fully comprehend the level of hard work, selflessness, and sacrifice it takes to do what you do on a daily basis – let alone during a global pandemic. While none of us are in this for glory and attention, it is clear more Americans and Arizonans are recognizing every day that nurses like you are the beating heart of our healthcare system.

      Our message to you is simple: keep doing what you do every day while being vigilant about your own health and safety. Your patients will always come first, but their health and well-being ultimately depends on yours. Take care of yourselves. Stay as well-rested as possible. Wash your hands a little bit longer. Eat healthier. Of course, follow all state and federal guidelines when caring for potential and confirmed COVID-19 patients.
      As we all know, the PPE situation is problematic. Though there is a massive public-private effort underway to secure additional protective equipment, the Arizona Department of Health Services acknowledges the “current expectations for re-supply are low.” AzNA will continue to advocate for appropriate PPE usage guidelines so that Arizona nurses are able to do their jobs safely and effectively.
      Thank you for all you do – and for making us proud.
      Stay well,
      Selina Bliss, RN
      President
      Arizona Nurses Association
      Robin Schaeffer, RN
      Executive Director
      Arizona Nurses Association

        anonymous,
        How do I get in touch with you, I have copies of subpoenas they sent out on me to other states and more. AZNB has sent subpoenas to my email company, to my bank, and much more. These are federal crimes: jockey and her pig pen full of sows need to be brought up on federal charges. Superior court, nor supreme court is not the place for these type of crimes, federal courts are the place. All those who work at the Universities, DES, and the boar hog that works at ARIZONA@WORK who are involved need to been charged just like that slimy Paul D. Pettersen.
        I had a cop ask me where I worked, and within days I lost my job while under investigation. I also have copies of where the sow mammalay intercepted a complaint I filed against AZBN, the complaint was not assigned to her nor addressed to her, nor even in her department but she responded to my complaint. I REPEAT: THESE ARE FEDERAL CRIMES. EMMA in not the only one committing these CRIMES, the AZBN staff assigned to harassing me is one of the investigators. I have been denied food stamps, unemployment, and health insurance due to the collusion.
        How can we get in touch with one another.

      . It is no surprise they will attack anyone who exposes this Arizona board for what it truly is .
      Put in a complaint that the nurse and the board knows is lies. Soon as they show you this, you spill your guts, then they twist that , take ANYTHING , a swear word, a off comment and add that to the mix, And your fighting an uphill battle , sign consent agreement and then …
      Case closed, right?! Simple! Yes, indeed, this is pretty much how police and prosecutors close cases… and dupe everyone!

      He/she is guilty! No investigation to see if this complaint is all trumped up , is necessary. The public has been put on notice to hate this nurse, and any potential job lead has been tainted. The nurse been publicly maligned by allegedly truth-telling, credible authorities. The nurse is discredited by a small hick up in their way past, dui in high school , or mgr who loves to do write ups about nothing. And the board will willingly regurgitate the story as the state of Arizona tells it, while silencing the victims . . One-sided reporting is extremely effective. Unchecked rampant abuse ensures the suppressors of it.

      Oh, and the accused is hung out to dry , labeled , and discredited their entire life .

    Review Legal Assessment AZBN 

    The run of the mill expressions here have brought a good amount of views throughout the state, and nationally, which has informed many nurses from all specialties. Comments have a wide range of sources that can be character assassinations to accurate probative evidence defining names, dates and locations of incidences of violations by AZBN. It would be a higher focus to call many definitions declarations of crimes. As this information has filtered throughout the internet much might be described as anonymous as names were vacant. In the past 2-3 months I have placed my name on posts that can be directly linked to me which has brought to me people and groups who want to move with the numbers of nurses that have been abused by this Board with issues ranging from false witnessing, posting at the national council site hearsay statements not to mention a mountain of violations by Beth A, Campbell, the AAG, of intentional ignoring of state statutes. We’ve been over this territory many times. There are groups of attorneys and nurses now making moves for review through the legislative process to address these issues and we need as many nurses whose civil rights have been violated to have this Board, and their constituents brought to accountability. Without going into specific detail I would say that the review is not for a while so we have got time to organize the evidence and prepare presentations for each nurse. The time to face your fears is soon, these bulls of abuse are in our cross-hairs and your input can guaranty relief from the illegal damage they’ve done to you and your family. The requirement of coming out of the shadows is a must and without sunshine on their evil deeds more and more nurses and patients will become victims. drethics@cableone.net and pearyb@yahoo.com are the contacts. Stand up and face the demons.

      Thank you my friend for having a well formed conscience as to what is truly going on with this particular licensing agency and what we can do about it. Thank you Peary, for giving me the strength to fight and look into the laws that have been implemented for the people. As TAANA states “justice delayed is justice denied.” I am sure if we work together we can address our legislatures with information in which we applied our due diligence and illustrate a pronounced need for legislative reform. I look forward to nurses who have had past discipline of any kind or licenses denied to contact Peary and I. We hopefully will get enough volunteers to really work together. All names will be kept confidential as there is justified fear. We look to make a difference through the legislative process that is our right as Arizona Citizens. God bless you my friends!

Only a real whore can sell their soul , like that . Great actress . But there is one who has had 3 bd complaints , sure seems was on to them and what they are made of and decided to do that little trick. They knew better , and didn’t care, just like this writer , avoid the snake. Although the aag , was stretching it to ask one’s sunday’s activities. the alj recently
      written about did ask the respondent. ALthough they don’t ask questions of the ALJ ! ??’s WHY would that upset her ?? why did n’t the alj ask her ? Why is it no one else wants to work with her ? why is it that she is targeting the social media against the board ? One area they cannot control, until now it appears. Why can’t the one who wants to run the show, just look up the list and see who is before the board and contact them. but instead focusing on 1 area. hmmm . Then pretends to be one, but ‘won’t talk about it ” . Very telling. When one of the psych who was on “the list ” . makes a statement , when asked does any of this makes sense to you ? ( and got record or it ) , “you are dealing with a bunch of mormons at the board of nursing ” Dr Walters . He made 2 nurses reports show , ‘no further treatment ” when Mccormies was pissed and mentioned she was “concerned ” that two nurses did not warrant further “punishment” or counseling , and he found nothing wrong to state they should follow up , even on their own. Then “joke ridenour ” stated she would look into it. so he was taken off “the list’ , except very specialized , rare cases , where he had that focused expertise. And the fact that the board was wrong by ordering a psych eval . They just cannot admit they are wrong. Little pretend momo, is still working for the board , trying to get others to obey , and be obedient of her . Your as strong as your weakest link, and she is going to control that too. Social media is the boards enemy, putting the truth , the real truth , not just the ones who . are all talk. Little ms pretender did not even show up for OAH sunset, she is steering you in a direction that won’t exist ,or MATTER , cause we know it is a dominant control legislature and senate , and a major distraction. one person can bring up the facts, but she wants to flush out, who’s involved. They have proven they CANNOT BE TRUSTED , and will only take care of another one. Using others. Not real smart either , already publically telling the enemy her next move, on a sight that bugs out Mamaluy’s eyes , the spy queen, while looking for anything legal to go on while getting paid.

Your incorrect assumption was precisely that, incorrect. If individuals on this site do not want to help as a group then no one is forcing you.

      Remember when Elisabeth Campbell , was with the pharmacy board, but did not make it . She goes for easy pick en’s namely nurses who are hard workers , don’t think of how to screw someone over, have a heart, and are not in it for the money, or they do not last. Campbell, is such a liar, she will say anything and do anything to get the nurse to sign . SIgn or no license , by signing you will lose your license . And let them off the hook, but duress does mean a lot.
      maybe God Bless can go to the board meeting in march , it wont take much to find those who find the board to be ‘out there” and biased , and basically a bunch of numnuts like Brnovich . !
      Once Campbell has to face other judges out side of the sham oah court, she is nervous and takes her boss, or someone else , cause she is NOT GOOD AT what she does. A legal stinky fart. She will also sign her name, and since she is a fing NO BODY , and a twat to match, she has to remind the judge, she is doing this —FOR MARK BRNNOVICH . why does she right that ? to let them know it is the AG she is writing her lies for, and since she has NO CREDIBILITY , sign my legal mess paper for HIM>, the male, also the fact she is a pussy , and women do not prevail in court without a penis.

      ANd for those of you , who read the whistle blower to the IRS, is a little tidbit about finances, that is what keeps certain ones to keep doing the illegal , ignore, and intentionally work against. They can be bought and lots of money to go around. They also put guilt trips on members to do the maintenance and cleaning of the doom temples to save a buck for that island paradise (LOL !!) . or to buy in their next candidate ! Sounds like money laundering , and they are all a part of it. Numbers decreasing. It is a business model.

      ANd for those In Arizona, that same Deseret News page says “In Arizona, the church owns at least $117 million in commercial and agricultural properties and vacant land, including about 6,000 acres of farmland and orchards in Maricopa County.” That’s what it fesses up to. It actually is known to own considerably more than that, in addition to the 500 parcels it owns in Arizona alone for what it calls its “ecclesiastical operations.”

      Purposefully overpaying for land being bought from favored church members or other people to whom the church owes favors or from whom they seek influence is a favorite tactic of the church when it needs to compensate a member or pay back a favor to or seek influence from someone and they don’t want to have to explain things – and that is how much of this land has been acquired. For example, in 2008, the church paid $72 million for 1900 acres of raw land in Pinal County, Arizona, 35 miles south of Phoenix, roughly half-way to Tucson. That works out to $37,800 per acre for totally raw, undeveloped, desert land with no water rights, no utility access, a long way from anywhere. The article in the Arizona Republic about that purchase quoted several puzzled real estate professionals as saying it was worth only a small part of that, and they were mystified as to why the church paid so much – as finished lots (already legally subdivided and with paved streets and utilities in, ready to build) right on the outskirts of Phoenix don’t sell for that much. The church has never explained that high purchase price.
      And you don’t think the have one guilt feeling about stealing from nurses their finances? ? Think again .

    Lobbying For Safety AZBN 

    The principles of patient safety that so many experienced nurses learned many years ago are now interfered with by AZBN as so much of their history is defining nurse discipline unrelated to clinical issues. Nurses who’ve had the unfortunate experience of dealing with domestic issues of a vindictive spouse and ex spouse that brings a complaint against the nurse’s certification can expect some action by the AZBN. The AZBN loves attaching itself to complaints as being a monitoring entity for safety. Under scrutiny many of these nurses become blocked from working in the field of their chosen profession. The continuation of disciplinary actions on nurses known to step on Banner money trains for patient safety issues, and the numbers of those nurses are not hidden here.  Overall the aspects of disciplinary actions that are corrupted by known criminal behavior of the AZBN and the Attorney General’s office flys in the wind and goes nowhere to help either the safety of the general public or the nurses.  In general terms the effect of nurses to express themselves here is relatively useless in terms of cause for successful actions in stopping this behavior of rule violations well established by those in the center of this sterile abscess. This Board does not follow the laws and rules passed by this administration. We all know that its business as usual and any attempt at justice in the courts is a laughing matter for the Board. The options from that point is to certainly approach the problem at its weakest point which is their open meetings so the students can be shown what they might expect when they decide that being blind robots for profit is uncomfortable for them. The presentations for this may sound improbable especially when these ‘Dudley DoRight’ meetings standout in the form of the smoothest silver tongued devils the public has seen but make no mistake,  a thief of justice is basically a coward at heart and will be exposed as such. The names of the victims of this Board represent patients as well as nurses. The most explosive event will always be the most unpredictable in timing.

      Once again, I will humble myself and encourage people on this blog to contact me regarding the Sunset Review. If you really want to do something , we must collaborate for change in the legislation. The Kentucky board of nursing recently passed laws to allow statute of limitations on past board disciplinary. If one does their due diligence and works as a team, it is amazing what can be done. Please of course proceed with blogging on this feed if it is therapeutic however if you really want change contact drethics@cableone.net

      drethics The legislative branch and the governor three years ago passed a bill with that precise law of statute of limitations on priors not to mention several.other nurse saving laws. The AZBN totally ignores these laws creating a well known criminal agency. Criminal behavior must he dealt with in a criminal way by the right person. That person must be willing to take a bullet for the sake of others.

        May I please see the ARS reference as I am unfamiliar with this passed legislation. If you don’t mind, so that I may reference and research it? Thank you so much Peary as I appreciate any assistance here. I believe you may be speaking about the board no longer being able to post on their website. They have joined with NURSYS so they have bypassed that law. However I need an ARS reference so that we are on the same page. Thanks again Peary.

      haha the board of nursing, may have teamed with nursys , but they did not bypass any law. The Corrupt board of nursing was putting UNDER INVESTIGATION on the nurses name , even before the nurse was notified. A judge ruled against the Corrupt Board of nursing, that this was convicting without a hearing. It puts the nurse out of work. Now the Corrupt board of nursing takes any employer listed on the intake questionaire and calls them with ‘the sky is falling BS by Emma Mamaluy, ” drama queen actress herself. “We have a SUB STANCIAL Situation , and this is the board, we never investigate unless it is a SERIOUS issue and we just want you to be AWARE! Oh it is not your facility, not yet, but just a heads up , this person is UNDER INVESTIGATION , and of course we are hear to protect the public , so we want to make SURE you are aware. ” (gag me , while puking guts out ) now the nurse get fired , ‘until the board issue is cleared up” and then in their bullsh*t write up of events , is sure to write , and she / he was FIRED from ____ facility . Adding to the drama, that they caused. liars is all the AZBON is LIARS . Oh and when you tell EMMA The ACTRESS, that you were fired due to her phone call , she says , “OH , I was HOPING that would not happen ” (and if you believe that lying pile of shit , i got ocean front property in AZ to sell you . )

        What is so strange is the fact that State Attorney Generals Offices claim they have no control or oversight of nursing boards but they will use state funds to represent them in court. If you have ever watched the videos from https://www.ncsbn.org/ you can see how these so called slimmy assistance to the attorney gen.’s from around the nation brag and lie about their big catch (nurses) to the other nurse hunters/killers. But boy oh boy you should see slimmy jockey and her predators of suck ups brag about their mother load of catches. Emma sow will lay on her back and suck anyone to tell her foul lies, yeah she was a real fat sow in college, I wonder what kind of diseases she has from blowing anyone and everyone to keep her job? Emma does call employers regularly, so Nurses who are under investigation in AZ, when you get a job in AZ and keep it for only a couple of months before getting fired, and this happens over and over again you can thank that diseased up sow Emma and the others from the AZBON, they are running our SS#’s and calling our employers.

      notice how the corrupt board of nursing is all over the place with their ‘decisions” . the worst cases in which they are attacking nurses has nothing to do with nursing at all . but cases that concern patients are dismissed or letter of no concerns. for instance take mike wentzel he used a nasal trumpet up a patients rectum. Where did he learn that ? Is a nasal trumpet designed for an a hole ? then he connected it to a foley catheter bag, creative, but who said it is ok ? and what policy does this follow. imagine trying to take a dump once this nasal trumpet is taken out. IF no tears in the rectum it self he lucky. the board has no concern for the patient and so a loc was issued . Really do nurses even think this is ok , I guess when ridenour is the patient we don’t care what they shove up her ass , right / ? she needs a size 13 Roper boots , with a swift kick in the ass , running a corrupt board the way she does.

      The arizona board of nursing is an out of control system. When the members say , doesn’t matter if what is said is true or not, they go with the hospital manager , cause they would never lie. Or play mean nurse . Just stick with your integrity , and do not sign those lies. (they call consent agreements ) NO NO NO do not sign. THAT is unprofessional to sign your name to a pack of lies. IF you have to live in a tent do not sell yourself to these wolves. Signing lets them off the hook, you agree to do things that are not even possible ! You don’t know it but they do . You sign and guess what < you can't get out of it. Who would live in America and sign their freedom, their due process rights to appeal away. At some point the truth will prevail. No matter what you have to do, do not sign. Contact and study up, keep the appeals coming , because one good reason is the board agency , has backed down when they know a nurse will take them to court . Seen them hand over a very light fine.

    Documentation of Permanency AZBN 

    Continually posting here at this page does get the attention of many that stumble upon it and perhaps plant seeds of curiosity amongst  influential viewers. Keyword would be ‘perhaps’. Many of us, the damaged set, only have a vision of hope that someday truth will be found and that nurses will find justice. The conflicts demonstrated here with the AZBN and its ancillary departments is, in many cases, very clear and leaves little room for doubt that the AZBN is nothing more than a political arm of corporate owned health care. I would say that there are a substantial number of nurses disciplined for stealing and abusing drugs giving Board righteous images of public protection. There are nurses today, this minute, using drugs stolen that are not disciplined out of political inconvenience. Somewhere in the U.S. today a nurse will die of a drug overdose from drugs stolen from the workplace. They are not disciplined because they’re dead; that data remains locked up in police reports. End of story. The evidence in the Radonda Vaught case of Tennessee and Vanderbilt hospital is the foundation of known uselessness and political highlights of nursing boards where and individual can kill a patient out of sheer neglect and be cleared by a Nursing Board as the truth is bad for business. There are many stories of patient abuse and errors reported by nurses only to end up in disciplining actions against the nurse. Many of those are listed here on http://www. azboardofnursewatchdogs.com although some are aliases out of fear of retaliations. Their stories represent the back room activities of the AZBN. Many nurses are wrongfully disciplined trying to protect patients and or being human in a domestic dispute totally unrelated to nursing. All of this is not new to this site. This information is in this moment a passing knowledge which truly isn’t a part of nursing history. Although many cases are in court documents these documents are generally entered into governmental databanks by nursing boards themselves. Shoring up the statement that the definition of justice is seldom connected to any part of the justice systems. This page will often carry a completely different version of the same case. Giving this information validity will require more than the internet can provide. It is long lasting but still is basically temporary. The need to make nursing board activities a permanent part of nursing histories that can be assessed 25 years from now lies, at this point, with the international standard of book numerations which will allow a constant published account of say the actions and definitions of corruption. Therefore those actions such as Diane Mihalsky and Beth A. Campbell can easily be found with their own ISBN, at a glance 25 years from now. This is as critical to patient safety as Nightingale’s basic nursing works. As easily as these individuals tarnished the reputations of many nurses they themselves can have that behavior of corruption and perjury identified in a permanent and easily accessible databank. These events must be known for patient safety reporting to be effective.

      Seems like a revolving door at the OAH SHAM COURT, aka kangaroo court. SO efficient , they are, they even have the ‘verdict” figured out before the hearing. ! And the nursing board members actually type out the opinion , for the alj to sign.

But the Valerie Smith/ aka Dahn, will put some whacked out comment taken out of context that does not tell what really was said or the most effective statement. Of course it is what goes on the internet, which looks to the nurse as something out of a Stephen King novel of distortion, and a weird night mare of someone’s figment of their wild imagination. Lying “so called witnesses” , are marked credible. ! How can that be, you stated their lies ; you proved your case, even though it is the state that bears the burden they never do ! <even though Diane Mihaskey is so clever she tells the nurse , she does not want to hear any of that , nurses pointing out the lies. Would Diane tell an atty this ? What he can bring up or not , is this the rules of court ?

      There is little doubt throughout the community of health care that outcomes of treatments can be horrible. The add on to modern nursing is promoting in patients to have family members or other informed guards for every patient. Considering what is common knowledge, at least in Arizona, is being a patient is a very dangerous position even for the simplest of procedure.

      AZ Healthcare is one of the worst. The public is ‘fooled” by US news, reports , fake headlines and bought off reports. Yuma medical center top five , what a JOKE ! here is what a local wrote in email, “”The hospital is understaffed (especially the ER) and won’t hire anyone due to a hiring freeze. They say that they’re broke and can’t afford to hire the appropriate staff for the hospital to run efficiently yet they have all the money in the world to keep buying up all the private practices in Yuma.
      Unfortunately all the ranting in the world will not do any good. They don’t care about their overworked and underpaid staff who keep quitting due to the work environment there. It’s very sad for everyone involved, especially the patients who end up suffering due to the hospital’s greed.””

      What patients suffering and what is the BON doing about that ??? HELPING THEM !!

      And YRMC certainly does not value nurses. Why isn’t Marla, Leslie , Karen, putting on their tenny’s and helping out. Just a bunch of liars who will deny anything wrong going on , while stating ‘not for profit” , If their mgt team spent more time on actual patient care , doing back ground checks on the low lives.Instead of dreaming up ways to screw the nurse over they would be more positive approach and professional but instead choose to do dirty tricks, and lie their heads off .
      This is an example of the horrible hospital care in AZ . The AZBON does have a part in this !!

      When you are under anesthesia ANYTHING can happen, without your consent .
      Janine, a nurse in Arizona, checked into the hospital for stomach surgery in 2017. Before the procedure, she told her physician that she did not want medical students to be directly involved. But after the operation, Janine said, as the anesthesia wore off, a resident came by to inform her that she had gotten her period; the resident had noticed while conducting a pelvic exam.

      “What pelvic exam?” Janine, 33, asked. Distressed, she tried to piece together what had happened while she was unconscious. Why had her sexual organs been inspected during an abdominal operation, by someone other than her surgeon? Later, she said, her physician explained that the operating team had seen she was due for a Pap smear.

      Janine burst into tears. “I started having panic attacks trying to figure out what had happened,” she recalled in an interview. “I have a history of sexual abuse, and it brought up bad memories.”

      She felt especially unnerved as a medical professional: “Patients put such trust in the medical profession, especially on sensitive topics such as going under anesthesia.” (Janine asked that she be identified only by her middle name. The hospital declined to comment on its policies regarding informed consent for pelvic exams.)
      You cannot trust any healthcare to do what is asked or consent to do the right thing !

IS there anyone who truly believes that a board is not capable of black balling a nurse, and a corrupt board voting to require so much they wont agree to it so revoke . based on their distorted punitive mind sets. No, anyone who has an opinion of someone losing their license and posting a haha is not someone I would allow a voice , as liberal as a site can be , no way. Which should make that person grow up and think. !

      When you hear it from a former bd member , would they still deny it happens ?””” But in my time at the Board rarely did I see the application of rules to the RN executive for oversight, management, and supervisory responsibilities that are found in rule. The Board consistently places the responsibility on the nurse , and falls back in the old adage that a person can’t control the actions of another- therefore the nurse executive gets off with a slap on the wrist only. In my view, that nurse’s lack of action places multiple more patients at risk…. “”””” and of course “public safety ” . right !

      Uh, so weird , the ones who say , well i have a friend who is a nurse and they say that this cannot happen , blah blah blah, . So because someone has a nursing license they know how a board o f nursing operates ?? ? more dumb and dumber ! Once in awhile you will meet some sharp people who don’t doubt it for a minute. Then there are those who , base their mind set on the AZ NA !! no kidding ! the azna is not for nurses , and now they have a former board member , Busby as their lobbyist ! . Then there is that group who will actively work to expose them , then the ones who are so damaged they went into deep depression. . Putting someone into the darkest days of their life , they can only (try) to blame it on the nurse and not take ANY responsibility for their actions ). deliberate actions .

        DUCEY is the one who appointed Busby to the board. This article tells of her DUI, but seems she had multiple. dui’s . and her BAR member ship . is that intact . raises lots of questions. And if Randy the dip sh*t that makes BS statements , he wants to HELP people (haha) what did he do to help a co board member ???
        Turn a blind eye. is all. While his fb (which is coming next , ) has cans of soda pop, with statement “this is how mormons drink” After all Quinn is one of those “GOOD ‘ mormons, A dirt bastard playing judge , is all we see. In his own mindless thought process. AZBON and Kathryn L. Busby, JD: Extreme DUI Dismissed by County Attorney? How? CTY ATTY office is corrupt . (an OAH ALJ is from that office BTW! )

        Perhaps THIS is the reason why so many nurses get by with DUI, extreme/aggravated DUI, or DUI with hit and run with nothing more than a non publicized/private slap on the hand by the Arizona Board of Nursing. It appears as if Ms. Busby has herself *allegedly* received an extreme DUI with what appears to be some *alleged* time in jail holding in 2013.

        Interestingly the charges were DISMISSED BY THE COUNTY ATTORNEYS OFFICE. How? With a blood alcohol level between .15-.19 with a red light run? I have sources working on confirming whether these are the same individuals but the middle name and birthdates match…

        Does the STATE BAR take DUI THIS LIGHTLY? Did they facilitate a possible dismissal of charges against Busby? If this is the same individual who sits on the State Board of Nursing, how is she allowed to hold a spot on this Board having committed an offense such as this? The AZBON touts its mission as protecting the public, yet Busby herself allegedly endangered the public. Arizona Board of Nursing Bio states she represents various healthcare providers and entities??? How does she “represent” them? According to the State Bar of Arizona Ms. Busby is currently on “inactive” status.

        Board Member McCormies advertising herself as an MD, Busby allegedly involved in a severe DUI and RED LIGHT RUN, past reprimand from the State Bar……who has Ducey appointed to sit on this Board of Nursing and what does it say about the standards by which he operates to protect the safety of the public?

      Interesting, from an observer who is silently paying attention. I have sent you a great deal of information from the study I have been doing on the Board of Nursing. But I wanted to add some additional observations that may (or may not) be of interest to you. Things have gotten way out of hand over there and I am extremely concerned for a few of my colleagues who are currently caught up with the Board, and nurses in general in this state.

      While working on my research study, I found statistic in their journal that reads 40% of all complaints are never opened or are dismissed. I don’t know if this is useable to you but I do know its a result of the statute changes that provide more latitude to the board. that being said, when they make the decision simply not to open a complaint are they doing the same thing to other nurses that they did to me, dismissing valid complaints that should be looked into? How many of those 40% of complaints are deemed “retaliatory” when they are actually important missing pieces to an investigation that help put together the true nature of what happened??? This greatly hurts nurses, and puts many out of work, and doesn’t provide a full investigation, or at the very least, a fair one. I still cant get the complaint opened against Frank Fausto and yet that would have made a huge difference, especially because I had a witness that would have testified I did nothing wrong in my case. But the Board continues to ignore the valid complaint I file, refusing to open it and investigate it–and that’s with me telling them how this nurse violated the nurse practice act.

      The quote is in their regulatory journal for may 2012 volume nymber 1 page 16 by Kathy Malloch: “Once you are reported to the board for an alleged violation of the NPA, it is on your record for- ever. FALSE. (Approximately 40% of cases/complaints reported to the board do not meet triage criteria and are either not opened or a violation of the NPA has not been found.)” My concern is that the amount of latitude given to the board is too wide and people are falling through the cracks. I understand the auditor generals past concerns in his reports, but in pressuring the board to improve their investigation times the board has been compensating by tossing out complaints or issuing mass letters of concern in order to increase the movement of cases through the board process====which in effect hurts both nurses and the public. Im finding in my research that the past couple of years there has been a rise in letters of concern more than the other years and this coincides with the auditor generals recommendations to improve their investigation times.

      Most of what hinders the investigation process is that with each nurse they open a complaint on they go through the ENTIRE history of the nurses work history instead of just investigating the complaint at hand, they interview all former work places and coworkers which takes a lot of time, they also subpoena any and all medical records of the nurse and his/her pharmacy records which also takes more time. This is understandable in cases where substance or abuse has been involved, or medication errors or sentinel events (injury/neglect/abuse/death), but the length through which the board goes through to dig through a nurses history is extensive and their investigation times and manpower and use of resources would be greatly improved on simply focusing on those severe cases that involve the aforementioned issues that truly can put people in danger. They also order psychiatric evaluations on every other nurse which takes up more investigation time, but it also is unnecessary in many cases. In many of the cases I read, the order for the psych evals are requested at the time the nurse initially presents to the board and given 45 days to complete it.

      These are the very same people that are getting no punishment and letters of concern and put back out into the public. Pushing cases through at a rapid rate they way they are now is not serving the public well being whatsoever, and neither is using personal judgement to decide who gets a complaint opened and who doesn’t. There needs to be more criteria set forth that doesn’t allow them this kind of power. They are interpreting the law and misusing it. They write their own rules, which gives them more power, and this is how people are falling through the cracks. There needs to be more oversight in the rulemaking process and the application of it. Greg Harris the legislative liason doesn’t count either, because he actually used to serve on the board and helped make a lot of rulings. It should be another party from another agency who oversees how the board is actually interpreting and applying the statutes in a way that not only benefits the public but also in an ethical manner that doesn’t hurt good nurses. The fact that medical records are used against us, the privacy that’s violated there— and in one case I know, a nurse practitioner currently under investigation==their sexual orientation and practices being used against them===is horrific at best……..

      Why do we have a Nurse practice Act if the Board is going to pick and choose who to apply it to? Whats the point? That doesn’t protect the public—at all. The injustice of the inequity in disciplinary measures—- is tragic for nurses

      If a nurse has any discipline on their record, they cannot serve on the BON, But a ‘public member” who was caught doing the unethical , was able to just ‘turn in her license ” and be done with them ! A nurse cannot simply , turn in license without it ruining the rest of their life and chance to work . And why is that ? where does that fit under protect the public. As if the boards do not have records or resigning license, if you re apply. They have to announce it to the world. , so guess what, turn about if fair play. expose the corrupt board, some of them should have their licenses revoked , but it is expected of the dir that you are unethical so nothing happens. Here is Ms Busby’s , out of her role as a public member . OH BTW she is the lobbyist for the AZ NA, surely got big recommendation from the board, she knows dirty politics and is a willing partner . Former – Attorney Kathryn Busby of Phoenix; ethical misfit

      The state of Arizona provided Kathryn L. Busby with a law license in 1982 after she graduated from Arizona State University Law School.
      The Arizona State Bar found Kathy guilty of the following misconduct.
      In one matter, Kathy became a frequent customer of a Phoenix restaurant and later socialized with the owner and then provided him with legal and business advice. Shortly thereafter, Kathy filed a dissolution action on behalf of the owner and when he remarried; his new wife helped managing several restaurants.
      Kathy received a 1% ownership interest in the restaurants as payment for her legal work. However, she failed to make the client aware of any of the legal ramifications of a business transaction with a client. The terms of the business transaction were also not fully disclosed in writing as required by the Ethics Rules, a fact well known to Kathy.
      Several years later, Kathy drafted a will for the restaurant owner and his wife, but failed to failed to obtain their informed consent in writing for the joint representation.
      As a consequence of her misconduct, the cheerleaders of Attorney Misfits sitting on the Arizona Supreme Court punished Kathy by gifting her with a complimentary admonition.
      As we speak (ca. July 2015), Kathy practices at 2601 East Edgemont in Phoenix, Arizona.

      More AZ corruption. Cops break the law, get investigated, rare anything happens, If they do have a mark on their certification, the law makers (except for ONE honest one) wants that scarlett letter list to be hidden !! Look at all of the public shaming this corrupt board of nursing does to nurses . UNIONS needed a REAL Nurse Association, not the robin schaefer pretend , for the nurse, group of mgt thinkers protecting the hospitals and screw the nurse .
      MORE CORRUPTION AT IT’S FINEST, PLEA, PHOENIX LAW ENFORCEMENT ASSOCIATION. SHOCKING!!

      House Bill 2114, introduced by Phoenix Republican Rep. John Allen, adds an appeal process for officers prior to even being put on that list as well as other additions, such as making it so an agency can’t use the list in hiring or firing practices.

      The #PhoenixLawEnforcementAssociation, or #PLEA, helped write the bill and is its primary advocate.

      The bill was approved Feb. 19 by the committee on a 6-1 vote.

      The only lawmaker who opposed it was Rep. Richard Andrade, D-Glendale. He is also the only member of the Public Safety Committee who has not received campaign contributions from PLEA’s political action committee, according to campaign finance records.

      Nava, the son of a police officer himself, said he was concerned with how the appeal process could further complicate trials, given that little is known about how such appeals would be conducted.

      “Really, I haven’t heard a lot about how this appeal process is going to work,” Navas said, adding that the bill seems to be less about “due process for officers” and more about protecting “possible #badapples.”

      Proponents of the bill, such as PLEA Executive Director #JoeClure (who is on the board of the Maricopa NAACP and they ironically have very little to nothing to say about Phoenix Police violence), shot back, saying that the Brady List is a “scarlet letter” for officers and getting off the list is often a difficult task.

      “We are not here to protect bad apples,” #SeanMattson with the #FraternalOrderofPolice said. “This is just to instill an opportunity for due process.”

      Rep. John Kavanagh, a Fountain Hills Republican and retired police officer, said the list is currently public record and not difficult to obtain.

      However, ABC15 recently spent nearly a year making public records requests in order to create a publicly searchable version of the Brady List of Arizona officers for the first time ever.

      The list, which contains 1,400 law enforcement officers, also contains the name of Rep. #AnthonyKern, R-Glendale, who sits on the #PublicSafetyCommittee and voted in favor of the bill.

      Kern was fired from his job at the #ElMiragePolice Department, where he worked as a code enforcement officer, for lying to his supervisor. That landed him on the #BradyList, the Phoenix New Times reported last year.

      An investigation by USA Today last year found that many prosecutors across the country aren’t even properly using or tracking officers on the Brady List, sometimes leading to wrongful convictions.

      The bill will next head to the house for consideration by the full chamber. It must also pass the Senate to become law.(AND WE KNOW WHAT TYPE SERVE ON THE AZ SENATE !! COPS AND FIREMEN VOTE, GET ON THEIR GOOD SIDE , FORGET PUBLIC SAFETY !!! ) Imagine if the BON had to take down all of their one sided lies !!

      Not only is the use of these “witnesses” the leading cause of wrongful convictions, they are the catalyst behind much of the misconduct in our Justice System. Prosecutors and police routinely rely on these dubious sources in order to convict people, while engaging in misconduct to hide either their lack of credibility or the fact that they have received incentives for their testimony. It’s a practice that needs to stop! There will never be a “fair trial” in America as long as the Authorities are allowed to purchase perjury! Don’t think that the skank’s Elizabeth A . Campbell and Sunita Krishna Cairo aren’t doing this very thing ! Who’s the real unprofessional here ? Who’s the real criminals here? They know the “witness ” is a lying but it is encouraged. And the shanks on the board and working at the board ,are right in with it. Between the investigators who write up a work of fiction , to present to the board, who knows it ‘s lies to the ALJ who knows it too. While the nurse is trying to explain why they are lies, the interruptions by all just keep on coming. No one interrupted those rude bitches. It is all one big plan of attack. The more who are involved the less they can point the finger at one, (THINK AGAIN).

    Diane Mihalsky Adm Law Court AZBN ‘The Firm’ 

     

    Do not confuse the definition of justice with anything related to the justice system.

    It has long been known that the AZBN has not complied with state laws that involve felonies and several ethical issues that would get another state governmental agency in hot water. Many have posted comments here which support that statement, however posts maybe vague to dates, times, and people the overall consistency creates validity in spite of undetermined accuracy. Meaning the volume of statements has value. There is absolutely nothing that can remove vagueness as well as accuracy of names, dates and times. The following account of an AZBN case covers ten years which accurately defines felonies by many. Case began in 2010.

    The patient is a hysterically converted personality which had Freud confused by not being able to focus on anything except anxiety founded. Supporting major surgery of the spine would normally require a diagnosis. For Dr. Isaac Thapedi, formerly of Chicago, doing major spine surgery requires only a perfectly normal spine with a patient claiming paralysis. The crooked implants tore up the patient’s esophagus causing huge weight loss and major dysphagia. This knowledge came about after a year of moron exchanges between Thapedi and family, with a dash of Bullhead City Municipal Court corruption.

    The surgeon’s continuing practice during this time was nightmares for patients and staff as well. Infections and redos were common. Putting drains in on Saturday or Sunday to avoid too much exposure was the norm.

    The main focus of this article is not necessarily to define Dr. Thapedi as an incompetent and ruthless person but for the failure of the AZBN to avoid the clear evidence of patient abuse. The intimidation by Beth A. Campbell AAG and Dr. Thepedi’s counsel T. Scott King are the make up of the well known 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S. today; the health care system itself. Another patient subsequent to this case died at the age of 38 with a very similar condition. Had an appropriate intervention been applied her life would have been not lost. That is a fact.

    Dr. Thapedi had an attempt at WARMC in Bullhead City to promote them to file  AZBN complaint against me which they refused. To their credit they denied his request and cancelled his contract with embarrassing stipulations to which he spent a year and 6 months in court to be relieved of. The restriction he opposed was a limitation of employment at WARMC’s competitor, Valley View Medical Center; where I worked after being terminated from WARMC for allegedly threatening Thapedi. After he won petitioning out of his contract he put all his rotten eggs in one basket to work at Valley View. I was terminated from there shortly before his hacks started there. His performance remained unchanged and he was thrown out of surgery soon after. By this time Dr. Thapedi was the Bullhead City Icon of surgical horrors. All of this was known before he and the AZBN came after me with false allegations. Patient safety is secondary to politics.

    The attorney general’s office is responsible for prosecuting cases when respondents refuse probation. Dr. Thapedi and his nurse manager, girl friend  Therese Rowan perjured themselves in December of 2013 at the bequest of AAG Beth A. Campbell. Leading witnesses to make false statements under oath which sways a judge is a felony, suborning perjury is a serious crime. This is routine at Adm Law Court, as many of my colleagues can prove. 

    My application for renewal after about six years of useless investigations was denied for violations that the statute of limitations had run out 25 years prior. A 5 inch stack of police reports of complaints from former girlfriends was illegally presented as my ‘long criminal history’to which I failed to state on decades old applications. Any police report that isn’t used in open court is NOT for public knowledge. Not to mention I was acquitted at trial anyways, in 1990. Diane Milhasky said I had a long criminal history. I DO NOT have a lengthy criminal history. I was never ever arrested or convicted of a moral turpitude crime. To which is the foundation of injurious crimes and it never was a licensing issue as there was none.

    Throughout 2019 I attempted to get licensed and denied through the sham court of Diane Mihalsky of the Adm. Law Court of Phoenix. I must admit that this was the most exciting and obnoxious demonstration of all the injustices seen in this case. The Amended Law ARS 32-1232 and many more of the Health Care Regulatory amendments was a major accomplishment for the legislatures, Nancy Barto,  and the governor. In that law it states, amongst others, the AZBN can not move on their own motion. When this was brought up at trial Judge Mihalsky played very dumb at the direction of Beth A. Campbell and power pointed in the overhead an old law. You can always tell when somebody is singing karaoke, however coming from a family that has lawyers their Interpretations are different. I call it karaoke, my people call it this. ‘Any attorney or judge that does this is coded fruitcakeville.’ They fly around in their own flying saucers waiting to crash. 

    The facts also place Linda Monas as a lying perjuror at several different levels with the rum and cokes not seen. If I was any of these people I would be a hopeless drunk. Lying under oath, ignoring state statutes, tampering with evidence and suborning perjury would be something I could not live with. 

    Many years ago as a young Navy recruit I was sitting in a classroom with many other similar personnel listening very attentively to  Cdr Nurse Eleanor Parker giving her introduction to hospitalcorpsman instructions. “You will not ever falsify medical records while working as a hospital corpsman in the Navy. One false blood pressure documentation is grounds for a court martial and a dishonorable discharge. If I find out I will travel around the world to get you court martialed.” Commander Parker was a hard ass in true Navy fashion and she trained hard asses. Failure in medical ethics costs lives and my involvement in this case saved a life. This case costs $1,750,000.00 in medical bills alone. Undetermined amount of social misery; on a case that never needed surgery and fraud was what brought it forward. The only point it was good for was identifying the corruption in the Attorney General’s office, the AZBN, and the Bullhead Municipal Court Justice system. The management knew already, before this case, that Dr. Isaac Thapedi and Therese Rowan were bad providers but hired then anyways. There are several untold pieces to this story, the end being one of them.

      Diane Mihalsky is as corrupt as many of the judges at the oah, kangaroo court . This is Amanda ‘s Trujillo, “judge ‘ too, who pretends to listen, but will sign anything the dirty lawyers will put in front of her. One judge recently recommended a nurse allowed to withdraw application. What the nurse wanted. Another just rubber stamped a case, ignored everything mentioned in the case . The atty wanted to table the case until next board meeting, she was telling me, a case from FIVE years ago, but the board refused to allow it delayed 8 weeks. Weird, It was ‘beth campbell who objected which is really weird , and no basis for the delay , other then the judge prepared it ‘for this meeting ” . Prepared what ? ? her rubber stamper ?? obviously alj did NOT read a word. The investigator lied (pinnochio peter ) . as much as the board members who said they read it . She said got it two days prior and read the transcript and the other cases LIARS. She said the board is always telling students how much the nurses lie to them . board lies campbell lies investigators lie. IF they had to do a case without liars where would they be ???

      There is no doubt that this agency dominates over the rights of others with injustice and does so with impunity. When nurse Trujillo came forward several years ago with the details of her case many were in disbelief. There have been changes in the system, at least by the proxy of the administration but this post focuses clearly that the AZBN still does what it wants irregardless of state statutes.

When it is the nurses turn , Diane makes a statement , “it is about this time that the defendant starts calling the other side liars and sorting out lies they made, and I don’t want to hear any of that ” What the hell kind our GROUND RULES IS THAT !! Amazing , that she admits the nurse has been telling the judge the AAG are lying ! A crooked biased alj, who knows what she is going to sign and doesn’t want the record to reflect the truth . ! Your biased diane and have no business judging anyone ! Stop favoring the board bitches side !!

      Here is an evaluation of the OAH, the court the corrupt board of nursing uses. Why is it nurses do not fill out evaluations ? They think it will be held against them . who is filling these things out Elizabeth Campbell Sunita Cario ? Rigged ALL THE WAY AROUND ! anyone use the OAH Admin law sham court . the director there doesn’t believe in statues , hides the mandatory evaluation on the web site, rights all over the place about fair , impartial non biased, but when you arrive the final opinion has been decided . Beware nurses, this is who hears your matter , unless you sign the lies written by the BON investigator. Here is one comment .

      “””The order issued in my case was full of inaccuracies and was in direct conflict with the facts listed within by the Judge as well as supplied in evidence.
      No statutory declared timelines were upheld. The respondent missed every deadline but was always allowed to submit anyway. Then the Judge herself missed the 20 day deadline by more than 30 days. I questioned this verbally with no response so I then submitted a formal written questioning for reasoning and expectations which prompted a rushed and inaccurate order to be written and issued that same day in the respondents favor with the order itself listing contradictory evidence and facts!
      I am floored that this is our people’s legal system and that I believed it was fair! I guess it is time to seek my ombudsman to assist with my due process rights to a FAIR consideration of evidence!”””

      What so many Nursing Boards fail to recognize is the details of the now well established robotics demonstrated in this inpatient’s post while in the hospital. A very common sense of lack of care by the alleged professional whose goal is vacant of the Nightingale Model.
      So, I’m in the ‘new’ Lake Forest IL hospital. Nothing but a cold, glass and metal structure, and the amount of mistakes I have already caught (6 so far) and I am still in here..is completely unacceptable. When you attempt to call them on it, they just wave their hands and blame their computers that tell them what to do, when to do it, etc. Even the “doctors” are clueless; choosing to ignore an already diagnosed potentially fatal condition called Serotonin Syndrome. The younger “nurse bots” have the personality of tan wallpaper. They need the assistance of nurses who have been on the job for years to start a single IV. Yet their yuppie parents pay for their piece of paper certificate stating they can indeed do all of this! I have caught these young nurse bots attempting to overdose me by giving me a one per day medication THREE times per day. When I attempt to give them my list of medications prescribed, or allergic to, they wave that off too, because the computer “cannot make changes”. Bullshit. The days of personal medical care are completely GONE, and ushered in are the mechanical nurse/doctor bots that are taking our money and making mistakes at an all time high. When you attempt to contact someone regarding the mistakes, they either A) ignore you or B) say it will “be looked at internally in the admin. offices” In other words, they will not do a thing about it. Every patient needs to advocate for him/herself, do NOT let them make continuous mistakes “because it is in the computer” No wonder the percentage of medical mistakes/malpractice is so very high.

      Just to point out why the title of this site is ‘corrupt ‘ BON. Planned Parenthood is suing Joey Ridenour , as well as others but the corrupt board of nursing puts in their minutes, P P VS AZ BON. Sure looks like she is the target of their investigation and how she runs the board, education, rules, she is screwing other woman out of due process, and they are not even nurses. BTW , a recent poll showed the majority of nurses are pro choice, and non judgemental of those who want to abort or now. P P also has many services to prevent pregnancy. Shameful Ridenour , putting women in the back alley , going backwards with this dinasour thoughts and ideas , women only good for breeding mentality . “”Planned Parenthood alleges the laws violate due-process protections because they lack any legitimate benefit and impose undue burdens on women seeking abortions. The suit asks the court to bar the enforcement of the laws. “”” Just like the board itself , lacks any legitimate benefits to nursing world. This is a decision between a woman and her Dr, not her and Brnovich bitches, J. Ridenour and sheep.

Ridenour, doesn’t care if people have to drive hundreds of miles for health care, look at how she took the stream off the web site, when her board members , got butt hurt, live. Now they have to record them but don’t think for a moment this board wouldn’t ‘doctor up that ” . eliminate anything against them Or said wrong.

His image at meetings appeared so very righteous and politically correct but with so many nurses with stories of liars and just plain trash cases it is obvious his influences were very bad for nurses.

      RANDY QUINN is just plain “a legend unto himself.” Moron. Generally when people attain adult hood, they start to look around and wonder and compare themselves to others and question is what they were taught was lies. Looking at others he is radically different, and that is certainly no compliment . Most people would say, yea that he is really out there, weirdo , but he can’t get out. He cannot make a statement at all derogatory , he would be shunned for sure. At his age no penetrating that brain washed monster . Time will certainly tell is Makoba- Hill will be honest or continue to let Carolyn McCormies dictate how the rest of the board will vote.
      This site , attempts to educate those nurses who just cannot wrap their minds around most of what is being told . They are learning so much, in that rose colored glasses stage. But eventually , they will understand . A fellow nurse taken down, who knows . Until then still providing a free service to nurses who even think about getting a license in AZ !

      Quinn wasn’t the only disturbed corrupt one on the board , McCormies is back and tainting new ones too stupid to think for themselves . And the ones who work there on and off of the board. It takes a village of thieves and liars to attack a nurse. Once some one lies just makes stuff up with motive it is hard to fight , but why should it be? Any prosecutor who brings in liars, and a judge willing to sign they are credible , are working in collusion with the corrupt board. the DA , and Judge have some immunity but the board , dir and staff, do not. Maybe AZ needs to be a little more progressive (a LOT more ) do what Ct did . How well do the investigators check out ‘witnesses” , well with the amount of lying they are willing to put into their report to the board, they simply do not care, And the ones promoted to assoc director are the ones who really gave up a piece of their soul , if they had one , for the raise.
      You don’t need prisoners to lie, the A AG can find enough liars willing to say what ever they want .

      With the stroke of a pen, Connecticut became the first state in the nation to require prosecutors to track information on jailhouse witnesses with the signing of State Bill
      The first-of-a-kind law will require that the state’s Office of Policy and Management Criminal Justice Division set up a system to track information on all potential jail houses that can be accessed by every prosecutor in the state.
      “It’s important for prosecutors to have that information so they can assess whether or not this person is reliable,” said Michelle Feldman, State Campaign Director for the Innocence Project which helped draft the bill.
      The new law is meant to add another layer of transparency in the use of testimony provided by jailhouse witnesses, Feldman said. “This is the first state in the nation that will have the information available for all prosecutors,” she said.

      “””” the only ones to “blame” are the prosecutor who solicits that kind of questionable testimony and the judge who admits it as credible.”””” This statement is right on the mark.

      “” Jurors go off what prosecutors tell them which is normally a huge lie. If you had prosecutors who had ho or or integrity this kinda stuff would bot happen. I’ve seen prosecutors lie and make up big glamorous lies with no proof to back them. In my case I have personally seen the prosecutors and their witnesses lie and there is nothing you can do about it. I will be going to jury trial on the sole evidence that I’m guilty because I was in the building. Oh and just fyi I was a cop when all this crap started. I was asked to lie by the prosecutors and say I saw something when I didn’t. I refused and they got pissed and came after me. So I have no faith in prosecutors or the system at all and the end of this year I will loose my life because of the corruption in the system. I’m fighting to open peoples eyes and it probably will not open a single one because people are either sheep or they just don’t care””

      This is what happens to nurses who report unsafe conditions . They are destroyed from working again. But the ones who just may be a patient , of course they think they will get ‘special ‘ treatment .

      A senior district nurse who was unfairly dismissed after blowing the whistle over valid safety concerns has told how the ordeal has left her life in “chaos” and she feels forced to quit the profession for good.

      Linda Fairhall, who had worked for 38 years, has spoken to Nursing about her experiences after she successfully challenged her employer’s decision to sack her. (you would never see this in AZ NURSE no way no how, AZNA is too corrupt to expose the truth!)

      “I don’t want anyone else to suffer what I’ve been through”

      Linda Fairhall

      Between December 2015 to October 2016, Ms Fairhall raised 13 concerns to the trust regarding staff and patient safety.

      At the time, she was managing a team of around 50 district nurses in her role of clinical care co-ordinator.

      She was concerned about her team’s workload, employee stress and sickness, and she had also reported fears about the risk to patient safety, including concerns over one patient death.

      Ms Fairhall’s staff were under additional pressure because of a new requirement put upon them by the local authority.

      New medication prompts required district nurses to closely monitor patients to ensure that the correct medicines were taken at the correct time.

      This caused a sudden increase of approximately 1,000 extra visits per month for the service with no extra resources.

      Ms Fairhall told Nursing that these changes “led to absolute chaos” as nursing home closures and safeguarding investigations added to the pressure.

      “I’d been escalating all these concerns as a result of the pressure on staff and I’d been putting it in writing, following all my [Nursing and Midwifery Council] guidelines and professional code of conduct,” she said.

      “I [thought] nobody is listening to me properly, I can’t do anymore. I am so concerned that there’s imminent risk to patients and to staff and I want to invoke the formal whistleblowing policy.”

      However, upon returning from annual leave on 31 October 2016, Ms Fairhall was told that she had been suspended.

      She was informed that the suspension was to allow an investigation into allegations of gross misconduct regarding her leadership.

      “I was absolutely bewildered,” she said.

      “I was utterly devastated. It was a real ethical dilemma for me because I was trying to balance my loyalty to the organization with my role as a nurse.”

      Ms Fairhall’s suspension continued for a further 18 months until she was dismissed on 16 April 2018.

      During this period she was battling with personal tragedies.

      Ms Fairhall was still recovering following breast cancer treatment and her teenage son was also very unwell at the time, and as a result he was being home-schooled.

      Eight months into the suspension, Ms Fairhall’s partner died from a heart attack.

      “I’ve had some really dark times,” she explained. “Not only am I trying to grieve for my partner, I’ve had to build a case to try and defend myself but I didn’t know what I was trying to defend myself against – because I knew I hadn’t done anything wrong.”

      Last year, Ms Fairhall took the trust to an employment tribunal in attempt to prove that her dismissal had been unfair.

      Employment judge Gerald Johnson oversaw the hearing at the Teesside Justice Hearing Centre, where he found in favour of Ms Fairhall. (YOU WONT FIND THIS AT THE CORRUPT OAH HEARINGS !!! )

      In a report published this month, the panel described Ms Fairhall’s nursing record as being “clean and unblemished”.

      “Workers who speak up should be thanked for doing so”
      Significantly, it also found that Ms Fairhall’s complaints when she worked at the trust had contained sufficient information to prove the safety of staff and patients was likely to be endangered.

      The panel noted the close proximity between the beginning of Ms Fairhall’s formal whistleblowing process and the trust’s decision to suspend her.

      It found North Tees and Hartlepool’s investigation into Ms Fairhall to be “unreasonable” and criticized a “lack of credible evidence” from the trust’s witnesses during the trial.

      Upon hearing the decision in her favour Ms Fairhall thought she would feel elated, but instead she said it “just felt flat”.
      “I was happy that I’d won it but I thought, this hasn’t ended yet.”
      Ms Fairhall has had to pay for her legal representation which has been a significant financial investment, and as a result she is seeking compensation.
      She has let her registration lapse and said she “can’t be a nurse anymore”.
      “I don’t think I’d be a safe practitioner because I wouldn’t dare report anything,” she added.
      “My whole life has been in chaos. I’m a different person. I don’t sleep at night. (the ones who are responsible for this, are amused by another person’s suffering , like J Ridenour, and crew)

      “I don’t want anyone else to suffer what I’ve been through.”
      Ms Fairhall has been supported by her family and friends, and she also noted that her trust’s Freedom to Speak Up Guardian was “really supportive.”
      Dr Henrietta Hughes, the UK’s national guardian, responded to Ms Fairhall’s case.

    National Mentoring Month 

    January is national mentoring month and the father is Ben Franklin. “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” There will be students today, 24 January 2020, that will read this and remember the visuals they got by watching the AZBN meeting and conclude how important their position of protecting the public is. There are a boat load of revoked nurses whose complaints to the FBI have merit of corruption and you as students must some how change this corrupted regulartory agency. You do have the governor’s help with new laws and regulations but still your help is needed in exposing the Banner collusion. Banner is the largest nonprofit organization in the world and sends more $$$ to the Utah Locker and cheats the state out of enormous tax revenue. So when you think today the meeting is impressive take your birth control pills, as if you get a nurses license in Az., you will eventually get screwed. Good Luck.

      Well Ducey is not going to do anything that is for sure . Not only stacking the board with political hacks, but putting the corrupt ones back one. Read the line up C McCormies , who will make every motion , taking over Randy’s Quinn total control of the board, and the sheep following suit. McCormies is a mess, brain washed to think her way is ‘one size fits ALL” , let’s hope that HILL the PRESIDENT does not allow that to happen , and takes charge . the PRESIDENT is suppose to be in charge not know it all , know nothing wanna be , cult clouded “carolyn ” will be arguing her point soon enough. And restacking includes Machesky, GO AWAY , your yea is just to make the vote of mccormins mind-less set pass .

      Students seem to think asking their instructor about the board of nursing is where the answers are . (wrong) We had discussion how the board meeting went, amazing how the students did not catch small details . (I guess my cia skills kick in here ) . or students trust too much. When the board tells you they won’t discuss cases, it is to hide real reasons, there is NO protection or “UNFAIR to the nurse. ” Fairness is not part of their make up ! The entire process is unfair to nurses. LISTEN closely , and read from those who have been through it. Remember nursing students, the board is the one who is over the schools , the instructors are not going to say anything bad . Just like she is not going to go full throttle on the CEO ,and the political connection there. Banner Ceo 21.million. a year. Best thing nurses can do in AZ is form a union at your hospital, it is illegal for the hospital to fire you. Hospitals will fight tooth and nail to stop this . It is the only protection you have . How many articles are written on ‘protecting your license” . Nothing they tell you will stop a corrupt board from going after your license .

      ANd what is really weird, is BIZARRE BETH, Another prosecutor thinks this is what needs to happen to BIZARRE BETH . AND Rogue defense lawyers who are helping the other side. !!

      Good one ! BIZARRE BETH , you hit the nail on the head there, and for those who don’t know , who this is, her name is : ELIZABETH A CAMPBELL , aka “beth” who takes money for prosecuting nurses . , whether they need it or not.
      Yes , the legal community is well aware of the skank, legal sell out, and corrupt methods , to make up for sloppy preparation .
      The AAG’s who associate with the BON, generally get the hell away from them within a year or two. ANd then they have to ‘train a new one , into their thought process, which is a real wild ride , so they leave. Campbell has been associated with the corrupt Bd for some time, which raises questions, is there a tip jar ? Got to be some illegal perks going on . ‘there’s no such thing as a free lunch” .

      Does sound like a good plan, and one that can be worked out. I heard someone who asked the woman’s name who was baked to death at the prison, looked it up and saw “the prosecutors decided not to prosecute this matter , as not enough evidence . ! “” Like a dead body with 108 temp isn’t a clue . BUT those same prosecutors will go after a nurse who took an extra condiment in the hospital cafeteria ! (btw true story ) fired , for ‘stealing’ worked nites didn’t know how much she needed when she ate later so took extras and she was fired. That is how the hospitals / BON values nurses ! they don’t throw away’s, and make laws to trump up the numbers so they have a steady stream of fresh meat .

      Many here have taken to character assassination out of frustration & anger. This page allows that as its justified. Collaborative evidence of perjury, suborning perjury is available in many cases. You can try but you too will eventually come to the reality that this Board, the Adm law court and the Atty Generals office are criminals. Tampering with evidence, wire & mail fraud is an everyday evident. You must prepare yourself to die if you want justice from criminals. Its wiser just to leave the state as many have done and succeeded with other Boards.

      As a future nurse , and taking boards , if you can take board in az but get license somewhere else . ? At least until I have two years experience. One case i heard, a nurse from another state , was working with no problems , applied Arizona and on the boards meeting. He did not mark the application correctly under his past arrests. When a board member said letter of concern , and added “welcome to arizona we really are very nice ” . Which really raised concern, are the board members trying to ‘save their bad reputation by handing out decisions that are fraud on the application , falsifying records . ? then another did the same thing . and got decree of censure . which is a higher form of punishment apparently . I believe the first one lied to the board too saying his attorney told him to . Not sure an attorney would give THAT advise . And the same one who said “welcome to arizona ” Karolyn MCCormies, said to the SECOND one , ‘it clearly states whether expunged or not ” but did not say this to the first one. this is quite concerning, and shows what i’ve read , the board is all over the place and they will try to say every case is different. No difference just the ‘ruling ” was different .

Then when the two of them were assigned to a committee , it was more than obvious. Mekoba – Hill needs be more assertive , this is not a ‘let others take over the lead”

      A nurse who has excellent work history , credentials, was victim of Peter Wittenberg. Who wrote many lies , it was all explained to us. each and every false accusation. LOTS ! Along with added words to make the report ‘juicy” . For instance , the nurses sharing pictures , Peter the liar , wrote NUDE photos, when this was not the case or never before showed up anywhere except in Peters, report of fictional mess. Peter is a trouble maker for sure. Raises questions , if this nurses had no police history, why would Peter be involved ? Seems like a wrong assignment there BUT she refused an evaluation based on his lies , so he had to ‘soup it up ” for the court hearing . And make stuff Up !! . Someone knew how Peter operated, and that is how it happened. What was also concerning was Machesky’s statement , if they refuse evals , then HOW CAN WE REGULATE THEM ??? Question ” Jaena Machesky, how are we going to regulate you and liars like Peter ?? Who is regulating the board, we know Joe Ridenour encourages this behavior so don’t say her.

      “””Staff mocked him, laughed at a joke about the “boy who cried wolf,” and ignored him as he moaned. When nurse Theresa Horn arrived later that morning, she did not help either — instead threatening to chain Ellis to the ground if he continued to complain.

      pretty crazy statements by aprn4jc, you cannot talk bad about a board for giving out way to severe punishment for minor infraction, and then show a nurse who treated a patient like this , with fatal outcome and say “she is still working ” , to show what liars they are about public safety . What public member would want a nurse like this ? She is obviously not skilled either not to recognize any of his signs of needing further medical treatment. And doing the basic assessment. I think , that aprn4jc is the one who needs to THINK before pointing fingers at others.
      While anyone would have to be extremely naive to read the boards or the judges opinion , or just plain ignorant , how rigged the system is , biased, and believe a state agency such as this is doing corrupt things, but there is plenty of proof to back this up .

      I must put this here but don’t give out my email, because I need to get a license when i graduate . This story above, I need to say , you are absolutely right about this board. A woman explained that her husband of 64 years had a lung procedure he told her he couldn’t breath she told the nurse, over and over . He sat up , to breath , in air hunger, she said he was soaking wet, labored breathing , no one came to the room, for a long time . The nurse saw him sitting up and threatened to get restraints if he did not lay down, the wife said he can’t breath, I need a Dr, the nurse came back told them she got the Dr for haldol . The wife told them no refused it for him, and knew it should not be given to elderly , another relative had a bad outcome. The charge nurse came down and said , I’ll take care of her and you take care of him . The charge told the wife she had to go home , and get some rest, haldol given , patient died a few hours later. This nurse got up there denied any talk of restraints , said she told the wife , she had to stand by him is he was sitting up , (sounds like a big lie because they wanted to get rid of her and using the call bell) . And that she ‘did everything she could, She denied everything, the board did not ask about haldol because that would be documented. Basically this nurse ignored her patient and his power of attorney , and put him in a chemical restraint. I have nightmares about this . When the pres of the board , Makoba- Hill (hyphenated name ) motion to dismiss , i was floored , I though this mans widow would have a stroke . She told this story with such emotion reliving this tragic ending of her husband’s life. It really makes me cry everytime I think of this, I believe that wife, and she was failed by an incompetent nurse, and a board who appears wants to bury this . This nurse basically killed this man, through negligence , then lying, and the board killed this woman broken heart. A simple procedure, my preceptor thinks he was drowning in his own blood from biopsy. SO disappointed in this board member . Not even a letter of concern ! Nothing ! I am betting that his age was their reason, he was old and gonna die anyways. Shame on Hill and all who agreed with this case is in any way no fault of this nurses. I will remember this and never , ever ignore pleads from family .

      To the victim of Peter Wittenberg, the pig who can make up lies , surely has many false confessions in his baggage. Just made up an investigation report , fabricated stories, committed fraud on the court . dirty cop for sure. This woman last name Smith, seems to think that nurses should get psychological evaluations to “clear their names ” . Another whacked out statement . 1) she is either really ignorant of how the board is set up , and really works 2) she’s just cannot admit any wrong doing by the board. (This corrupt AZ board ordered a psycho sexual evaluation, no evidence of it at all . Just Peters stretch of the imagination , nothing is further from the truth . In fact Peter the liar, wrote she is a sexual predator ! Wow. ! Only the reports from the other end did not jive with his blatant lines of bullshit . Just to let students know Smith is way off course to point , I think she needs a psychological evaluation .if she has sat in as many board meetings as she has and still saying things statements. First the nurse must see someone on the board list. A set up. In order for a Dr to get on the list you must write something that will give the board reason to order further tests , probation, skills, ethics there are a number of harassment tools of their trade. Many nurses have paid for psych evals SMITH , only to get more evidence against them !! These Drs will do anything for money, sociopathic have no conscience , they do not care ! 9 out of 10 have some real issues themselves ! Just like this board they do not care, if you are on probation and have to get counseling . The nurse does NOT clear their name, if a Dr does not find ‘problems ” they will be taken off the list . Just ask dirty McCormies about Drs not finding any problems with nurses. Probation also puts them out of work . IF you are going to be on a board , you need to get educated or get off . Do not tell nurses that when asked they must do what is asked . YOU are of the obedient type ! This is when the courts decide , only sadly the OAH court is another sham . Both statements made by Smith were based on true ignorance or a real shady character , she’s been brainwashed into .

      Why is it male dominated professions never seem to be punished ? They won’t take the petty micromanaging . It is a path of greater resistance, women love to control other women , what ever. Aurora Colorado DA would not prosecute a cop. Found drunk in his patrol car with a loaded gun, 5 x’s the legal limit. Because of garrity v new jersey , that says you cannot hold information against someone in an investigation process that is self incriminating. Cop admitted he drank vodka while on duty and before his shift. Got off scott free . Now compare to AZ BON , who will bring up anything from a meeting with the investigator, whether it is true or not. Any minor detail. unrelated . And bring in a second investigator , and to court, to verify the first one is telling the truth , when they are both lying . A large number of cases it is nurses, along with license carrying board , who testify against another nurse, mostly willing to lie as well .
      (note ” if you are facing a board complaint DO NOT meet with investigator, while you THINK , I’ll go and clear things up, they are not at all interested in clearing anything up or dropping anything. they will ask a lot of questions , fishing before they take you to court, they will know what your response will be. . Don’t answer Don’t go. Why aren’t they answering YOUR questions ? You should do the same .

The fact that many cases define criminal and unethical behavior transcribed here which go nowhere means that the statements are true. I, Peary Brown, do not need Willie Mangum or Amanda Trujillo to shore up the validity of this page. I have myself. If a known incompetent physician and unethical nurse and lying assistant attorney general lawyer falsify evidence while motioning illegally then I openly call them Isaac Thapedi, Therese Rowan and Beth A. Campbell. Many of my colleagues have more. The administrative law court doesn’t count because they do not even know the law. The many issues for the public nursing community to be aware of focuses on the ability of the nurse to give quality care within a safe environment that has a reasonable cost effectiveness application. This is not happening. The community is hoodwinked by the appearance of the AZBN to be honest and fair and protecting the public. I can prove all kinds of illegal & unethical behaviors except the most suspected one which is bribery. Meaning what possible reason would an AAG attorney knowingly falsify evidence and suborn perjury? I am not a forensic accountant but do know the hardest money to track is cash. I can think of no other reasonable explanation for this illegal behavior.

    Years of not many ago I could track a leopold in a rain storm and draw him out of his cave. Today I can’t get a couple of low level rats to snitch at unbaited cheese in the middle of the desert. What am I missing?

      no one should censor anyone’s comments . Then your acting like the anal retentive board staff. When they go after Amanda for posting ” i have to go to the AZBON to get spanked ” , they hold it against her? wow stooping to petty , small minded little girls gossip , while Valerie Smith paid big bucks to read her fb pages . Like snooping in someone’s diary . the board sure does not like anyone stating anything against them and cannot take constructive critic can they ? as long as the board has been in operation they sure make A LOT of mistakes. Big mistakes . Still can’t get the phones to work or the mics , like amateurs running a government agency . If nurses made 10% the errors they do , they would be written up and fired over and over. Oh that is what PETER found with Willie, fired but able to return , how many times was Peter complained of at work that would get a nurse fired, but not a cty mounty . well can’t be too bad. Nurses over years get fired for anything , ANYTHING . So what ? Means nothing, anyone over 40 has been harassed to quit , a Dr complain she educating my patient !! fired ! How many were fired when a certain hospital ran credit scores, before allowing rehire ? LOTS . Never see AZBON look in areas they are the most guilty ! oh no . !

      Does your hospital say they are non profit ? Here is the truth what that means . How nonprofit hospitals get away with the biggest rip off in America

      Marni Jameson Carey

      January 17, 2020

      Med News

      All across the nation, cities big and small are having their pockets picked and their communities decimated by their local nonprofit hospitals.

      How so? Nearly two-thirds of our nation’s 5,000 hospitals, or around 3,900, call themselves nonprofit, a designation that allows them to avoid paying taxes. Unlike for-profit companies, including for-profit hospitals, nonprofit hospitals pay no taxes. They pay no property tax, no state or federal income tax, and no sales tax.

      In exchange, these charitable organizations are supposed to plough what they would have paid in taxes back into the community, largely by way of lowering healthcare costs or providing free care for those who can’t otherwise afford it.

      But that’s not what happens.

      Instead, those would-be tax dollars go into seven-figure executive salaries, boondoggle retreats, extravagant galas, private jets, billboard ads, skyboxes, offshore bank accounts, and to fund special interest lobbyists whose job it is to make sure Congress keeps the sweet deal the way it is.

      Meanwhile, these same “charitable” institutions send patients struggling to pay high medical bills to collections and put liens on their houses.

      America, we are being scammed.

      “It’s the biggest abuse of the U.S. tax code by far,” said Tom Thomas, a Florida CPA, and founder of the Association of Independent Doctors, a national trade association working to stop the injustice.

      According to the IRS, to qualify as a tax exempt 501(c)(3), organizations must meet these criteria:

      · No part of their net earnings is allowed to inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual. (This specifically includes earnings by way of profit distribution or excessive salaries.)

      · No substantial part of their activities can consist of carrying on propaganda or otherwise attempting to influence legislation.

      Yet, nearly half of the CEOs of America’s leading nonprofit health systems last year had salaries that exceeded $2.5 million. The highest paid, the top executive at Banner Health, in Phoenix, received $21.6 million. In St. Louis, the chief at Ascension Health made $13.6 million; and $10.6 million went to the top paid executive of Northwestern Memorial HealthCare in Chicago. Those salaries sure seem excessive in a country where medical bills are the leading cause of bankruptcy.

      Meanwhile, Atrium Health Foundation, the allegedly charitable arm of the tax-exempt Atrium Health System, in Charlotte, NC, had so much spare change, they parked $52 million of it in the Cayman Islands, according to the nonprofit’s 2017 990. See page 31 of this report.

      To keep the money flowing their way, last year the American Hospital Association, historically one of the top five spenders in Washington, paid $24 million to lobby Congress. Over the last 10 years, the AHA has spent almost $400 million on lobbying, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. So much for not using money to influence legislation.

      Now let’s imagine if all the money that has gone to excess compensation, offshore accounts, executive perks, and currying political favor actually went to lowering healthcare costs and helping the poor with their medical bills.

      A study by researchers at Yale, University of Pennsylvania, Carnegie Mellon and the London School of Economics looked at how nonprofits charge, and found they don’t price any less aggressively than for-profits, a finding that prompted study co-author Zack Cooper, of Yale, to write: “We subsidize not-for-profits to the tune of $30 billion annually, in the form of tax exemptions, and we have to ask what that money is getting us?”

      Not much.

      But it could. A few year ago a business columnist at the Orlando Sentinel looked into what Advent Health (formerly Florida Hospital) and Orlando Health, another nonprofit hospital in the same community, would pay in property taxes in just five Central Florida counties. The reporter found that if these institutions paid property taxes alone, the community would net an additional $45 million a year.

      In a mid-sized metro like Orlando, $45 million would pay for a lot of schoolteachers, police officers, and, yes, community health care and financial aid for those who need it.

      But instead the community has seen medical costs go up, property taxes increase, health systems get bigger, and healthcare executives get richer.

      Nonprofit hospitals also use their tax-free surplus in more insidious ways. They use it to buy up independent medical practices in their communities, and turn independent doctors into employed physicians. This consolidation decreases market competition and increases the hospitals’ market power, meaning they can negotiate higher payments from insurers. It also allows them to layer in facility fees, which independent doctors don’t charge. These added fees cause costs to increase three to five times. Oh, and the taxes those previously independent medical practices used to pay into the community? They all come off the tax rolls.

      We pick up the slack.

      One way nonprofits hospitals get away with this is by using Chargemaster prices when filling out the charitable contribution section on their 990-tax forms. These are made up prices that nobody actually pays that are many times higher than what commercial insurance or Medicare would pay for the same service or procedure. Because nonprofits can make this number up, they can inflate how much they “give back” to the community as much as they want. This would be like you getting to invent what you paid in mortgage interest and making the number so high it zeroed out your income tax.

      And by the way, for-profit hospitals provide charitable care to the community and pay taxes.

      Ostensibly, the IRS is beginning to crack down and enforce the laws that exist to prevent just this kind of abuse. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chair of the Senate Finance Committee, has allegedly written the IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig and asked him to step it up.

      He’d better because we can’t count on Congress to fix this. They are bought and paid for. Getting the IRS to better enforce its own tax code and to make nonprofit hospitals that behave like for profits to either pay taxes, or provide true (not inflated) charitable care to its community is a critical next step.

      In addition, American patients need to wake up to what’s happening, get angry, and demand that the nonprofit hospitals that profess to be charitable institutions stop paying their executives outsized compensation packages, and start giving back to the communities they take from. Either that or pay taxes like the rest of us. Eliminating the abuses of the tax-exempt status would help take the financial burden of healthcare off the backs of U.S. workers and employers. It would also pour needed healthcare dollars back into communities that sorely need the relief, the very ones that were ripped off in the first place.

      looky here Campbell /Krishna /Reine/Smith ! and this was over a prison , took the nurse down too, unlike AZ . A jail/ prison nurse in AZ gets away with murder , literally . (to protect another state agency NOT THE PUBLIC SAFETY baloney they fling around )
      Judge orders sanctions against state attorney, DOC in prisoner litigation The Court fears that no amount of judicial action can fully mitigate the harm done when defense counsel treats opposing pro se parties as second-class litigants or when counsel so ignores the standard of review on summary judgment as to demonstrate complete disrespect for the Court’s and opposing party’s time,” the chief judge wrote . “This Order and the sanctions issued in it are a small but hopefully meaningful step toward halting this practice by deterring counsel litigating against pro se from proceeding down the same ill-advised path.”
      chief judge also imposed sanctions in the same case against attorney and his client, Pamela Hagemeier, a DOC nurse. Hagemeier was the subject of a show cause hearing in January 2019, when the court questioned her about allegedly submitting false statements regarding her interaction.
      ANOTHER LYING NURSE , abusive , willing to lie . In AZ she’ would be promoted. And the Judge would be lying their ‘due process butt ‘ off too !
      Board of nursing AZ has former prison nurses on their panel of liars and thieves ,they learned how to go along with the corruption very well, they were ‘trained ‘ in prison .

      NURSES DO NOT SURRENDER YOUR LICENSE !! Do not let this BOARD off the hook go to court and make a record. (this advise is not for those who have done damage intentional, or those who are a real threat to the public ) Mainly it is nurses who get tired and stressed at the board ‘s constant badgering , harassment . You may regret it down the road . One nurse , her husband could not contract to do repairs in a facility that accepts medicare money. Does the AZBON tell you this ! oh hell no, no disclosure from them , even attys do not advise their clients ! Many healthcare professionals are unaware of the negative long-term effects that discipline could have on their medical license.  This includes submitting a voluntary relinquishment of the license while there is an open investigation or pending charges.

      A voluntary relinquishment of the license after notice of an investigation or while a charge is pending is treated the same as a disciplinary revocation of the license.  In some cases, this scenario is worse for the provider if the agreement to voluntarily relinquish also includes an agreement to never apply for another license again. Most people don’t realize what else can happen as a result of  discipline, revocation or even voluntary relinquishment (under these circumstances).

      Reports to Other National Organizations on Provider Discipline.

      It’s important to know that the discipline (including voluntary relinquishment) will now be public record.  It will also be reported out to national reporting agencies, including the National Practitioner Data Bank (NPDB).

      As a result, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will most likely start action to exclude the disciplined provider from the Medicare Program. This means he or she will also be placed on the OIG’s List of Excluded Individual’s and Entities (LEIE).  This will bar a provider from the Medicare Program or working for or contracting with anyone else who does (including insurer’s medical clinics and most health care providers).  This by itself will also have many negative consequences.

      For example, if you are excluded from the Medicare Program you are automatically placed on the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) “debarred” list.  You are automatically excluded from working for or contracting with, in any capacity, any organization, individual or agency that has any government contracts or accepts any federal funding.  This act can bar you from working for a public school, working as a real estate agent, or many other jobs.

      Consequences of Revocation or Other Discipline on Your License.

      To summarize, the most serious adverse problems that may be caused as a result of discipline on your license may include the following:

      1.  May cause discipline to be commenced against any other health professional license you have, such as a nurse, acupuncture physician, chiropractic assistant, nurse’s aide, home health assistant, etc.

      2.  Will prevent you from obtaining any health professional license in the future.

      3.  May cause discipline to be commenced against any massage therapy establishment license for a massage therapy establishment you own in whole or in part.

       4.  Any other states or jurisdictions in which you have a license will also initiate action against him or her in that jurisdiction.

      5.  Mandatory report to the National Practitioner Data Base (NPDB), which remains there for 50 years.

      6.  The OIG will take action to exclude the provider from the Medicare Program.  If this occurs, (and most of these offenses require mandatory exclusion) the provider will be placed on the List of Excluded Individuals and Entities (LEIE) maintained by the OIG HHS.

      7.  If the above occurs, the provider is also automatically “debarred” or prohibited from participating in any capacity in any federal contracting and is placed on the U.S. General Services Administration’s (GSA’s) debarment list.

      8.  Third-party payors (health insurance companies, HMOs, etc.) will terminate the professional’s contract or panel membership with that organization.

      9.  Regardless of any of the above, any facility licensed by AHCA (hospitals, skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), public health clinics, group homes for the developmentally disabled, etc.) that are required to perform background screenings on their employees will result in AHCA notifying the facility and the professional that he or she is disqualified from employment.

      Could not come up with a better subject line.

      ANOTHER physician who I KNOW personally has surrendered their license after MANY years of fighting a corrupt (ARIZONA) Board of Medicine.

      I know lots of the facts of the case. This was wrong. The public was not protected by this. Many patients were harmed by this doctor being removed from practice.

      That is all I have for now.

      Appreciate the comments, the entire state is corrupt but the AZBON is the worst state agency. VOTED #1 in corruption . Doesn’t say much for the dir of Gov who allows this to happen and continue in this manner .

      nurses be aware of the abused women who belong to these secret societies hiding under ‘religion “. There is a pattern , watch for them if they come in to Er, or urgent care . While the public talks about what “good ‘ wholesome people they are . BTW JANA MACHESKY board member (who did NOT want to be on the board anymore, now wants to !) She can’t waddle out of those meetings fast enough, ) Just what nurses do not need a board member who is wishy washy , a political plug, keep the vote numbers against the targeted ones.

      The Amish Keep to Themselves. And They’re Hiding a Horrifying Secret
      A year of reporting by Cosmo and Type Investigations reveals a culture of incest, rape, and abuse.
      image
      By Sarah McClure
      The memories come to her in fragments. The bed creaking late at night after one of her brothers snuck into her room and pulled her to the edge of her mattress. Her underwear shoved to the side as his body hovered over hers, one of his feet still on the floor.
      Her ripped dresses, the clothespins that bent apart on her apron as another brother grabbed her at dusk by the hogpen after they finished feeding the pigs. Sometimes she’d pry herself free and sprint toward the house, but “they were bigger and stronger,” she says. They usually got what they wanted.
      As a child, Sadie* was carefully shielded from outside influences, never allowed to watch TV or listen to pop music or get her learner’s permit. Instead, she attended a one-room Amish schoolhouse and rode a horse and buggy to church—a life designed to be humble and disciplined and godly.
      image
      By age 9, she says, she’d been raped by one of her older brothers. By 12, she’d been abused by her father, Abner*, a chiropractor who penetrated her with his fingers on the same table where he saw patients, telling her he was “flipping her uterus” to ensure her fertility. By 14, she says, three more brothers had raped her and she was being attacked in the hayloft or in her own bed multiple times a week. She would roll over afterward, ashamed and confused. The sisters who shared Sadie’s room (and even her bed) never woke up—or if they did, never said anything, although some later confided that they were being raped too.
      Sadie’s small world was built around adherence to rules—and keeping quiet was one of them. “There was no love or support,” she says. “We didn’t feel that we had anywhere to go to say anything.”
      So she didn’t.
      Even on the day the police showed up on her doorstep to question then-12-year-old Sadie’s father about his alleged abuse of his daughters.
      Even on the day when, almost two years later, Abner was sentenced by a circuit court judge to just five years’ probation.
      And even on the day when, at 14, she says she was cornered in the pantry by one of her brothers and raped on the sink, and then felt a gush and saw blood running down her leg, and cleaned up alone while he walked away, and gingerly placed her underwear in a bucket of cold water before going back to her chores. A friend helped her realize years later: While being raped, she had probably suffered a miscarriage.
      It wasn’t until now that Sadie decided to speak up, to reveal the darkness beneath the bucolic surface of her childhood. She’s tired of keeping quiet.
      Over the past year, I’ve interviewed nearly three dozen Amish people, in addition to law enforcement, judges, attorneys, outreach workers, and scholars. I’ve learned that sexual abuse in their communities is an open secret spanning generations. Victims told me stories of inappropriate touching, groping, fondling, exposure to genitals, digital penetration, coerced oral sex, anal sex, and rape, all at the hands of their own family members, neighbors, and church leaders.
      The Amish, who number roughly 342,000 in North America, are dispersed across rural areas of states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, New York, Michigan, and Wisconsin, according to the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies at Elizabethtown College, a leading authority on Amish life. Because of their high birth rate—and because few members ever leave—they’re one of the fastest-growing religious groups in America. Lacking one centralized leader, they live in local congregations or “church districts,” each made up of 20 to 40 families. But the stories I heard were not confined to any one place.
      In my reporting, I identified 52 official cases of Amish child sexual assault in seven states over the past two decades. Chillingly, this number doesn’t begin to capture the full picture. Virtually every Amish victim I spoke to—mostly women but also several men—told me they were dissuaded by their family or church leaders from reporting their abuse to police or had been conditioned not to seek outside help (as Sadie put it, she knew she’d just be “mocked or blamed”). Some victims said they were intimidated and threatened with excommunication. Their stories describe a widespread, decentralized cover-up of child sexual abuse by Amish clergy.
      “We’re told that it’s not Christlike to report,” explains Esther*, an Amish woman who says she was abused by her brother and a neighbor boy at age 9. “It’s so ingrained. There are so many people who go to church and just endure.”
      And yet, as #MeToo has rocked mainstream culture, Amish women have instigated their own female-driven movement. “It’s much slower and less highly visible,” says Linda Crockett, founder and director of Safe Communities, an organization that works to prevent child sexual abuse. “But I have seen a real uptick over the past 10 years in Amish women coming forward. They hear about each other—not on Twitter or Facebook, but there’s a strong communication system within these communities. They draw courage and strength from each other.”
      “I get phone calls now….There’s a bunch of Amish who have my cell phone number, and they use it. The men call on behalf of the women,” says Judge Craig Stedman, former district attorney of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania—home to nearly 40,000 Amish—who has served on a task force that connects the Amish to law enforcement and social services. (Although most don’t have cell phones, the Amish might use pay phones or call from “English” neighbors’ homes.)
      Some victims, like Sadie, have long since left the church and the Amish way of life, but others, including Esther, are still on the inside, sending out an alarm to the world they’ve been taught to reject. “They want to talk,” explains Crockett, “so they’re turning outside.”
      image
      There’s no one reason for the sexual abuse crisis in Amish Country. Instead, there’s a perfect storm of factors: a patriarchal and isolated lifestyle in which victims have little exposure to police, coaches, or anyone else who might help them; an education system that ends at eighth grade and fails to teach children about sex or their bodies; a culture of victim shaming and blaming; little access to the technology that enables communication or broader social awareness; and a religion that prioritizes repentance and forgiveness over actual punishment or rehabilitation. Amish leaders also tend to be wary of law enforcement, preferring to handle disputes on their own.
      As a child, Sadie was up before dawn every morning to milk her family’s cows, wearing a pleated head covering and long dress, her shoes and socks a dull black, as her local church rules, or Ordnung, required. “If you didn’t work as hard as you possibly could, you were considered lazy,” she says. She never turned on a light switch or shopped for clothes in a store. She didn’t speak English at home—just Pennsylvania Dutch, the only language she knew until first grade. And she never revealed her abuse to anyone, except a cousin and her father himself, when he asked her, point blank, if her brothers were touching her. (The next time he asked, she lied, fearful he would beat the boys, as he often did.)
      But what was happening in her house was a poorly kept secret, according to several of Sadie’s relatives. One of them reported Abner, who has since died, to local church leaders—Sadie remembers her father being “shunned” for six weeks, a common form of discipline in which the accused is socially ostracized and forbidden from eating at the same table as church members. After a shunning, the person confesses in church and the community is strongly compelled to forgive and forget that the “sin” ever happened. In Sadie’s house, she recalls, everything went back to normal—or at least, to how it had been before.
      When the police and social workers later showed up on her doorstep, most likely after being tipped off by a local non-Amish person, Abner told authorities that “things which we were speaking about had been brought up and dealt with in the church,” according to a police detective’s notes. He also silenced his daughters. “You say nothing,” Sadie and another relative remember him demanding.
      image
      Authorities returned a second time, asking him “specific questions about having sexual intercourse with his daughters,” according to the case file. Now Abner confessed to having “sex with two of them,” insisting “he made love to them at least three times each but didn’t hurt them.” Sadie, who had heard from a cousin that her dad was also abusing her sisters, didn’t dare breathe a word in their defense.
      A relative recalls that Sadie’s mother told social workers “to do whatever they could to keep him from going to jail.”
      It worked. A grainy VHS recording from 2001 shows a gray-bearded Abner standing with his hat hanging between his hands before a judge, as an attorney explains that he is pleading guilty to a reduced charge of sexual abuse in the first degree, and not incest, because “the family is not desiring that he be incarcerated.” Instead of serving a sentence that might have been five years or more, Abner got probation.
      Sadie says her father abused her for five more years. When I reached out to her brothers, two confirmed that Abner had touched Sadie; one of them also said he himself “messed around” with her when they were young but that he did not rape her; the other denied raping her. A third brother did not respond to a request for comment.
      Some victims aren’t just silenced—they suffer something worse. Lizzie Hershberger was 14 when she went to work as a “maude,” or hired girl, for a 27-year- old Amish man named Chriss Stutzman and his wife, taking care of their four children and helping Stutzman in the barn. One night after they had milked the cows, he pinned her against a wall and kissed her, then pushed her onto the feed bags. Because it was a frigid winter in Minnesota, Lizzie wore pants under her dress, which Stutzman removed while she tried in vain to fight him off. “Relax,” he whispered into her ear as he raped her.

See it on the floors, woman who ‘s husband is the ruler at home the one who is the boss, the 2nd class female has to be in charge outside those prison doors . Has to have authority over others, intimidate others, and act like the authority figure . You just know the type, at work , they are called BITCH , behind their backs and they are. Guessing , no knew it first meeting but a co worker who stayed at her house says “the husband a cop runs the household” . yep , we already knew. I really don’t think anyone would be glad to see her and her mouth back , just as know it all as ever. But needs a lot of correcting. And when you do tell her what the real answer is, she still argues ! BITCH , yep fitting . Oh and no the students know what you did with another student . You should have been fired !

The board not having a timed case at the time listed . MANY violations. and what does this over paid , do nothing , That is what he does, nothing. Is this his job to turn a blind eye , and protect state agencies no matter what . Well Garone , you have failed , in regards to the agency nursing board. He call’s himself Citizen’s aide. The only one he is aiding is his wallet. You should know the laws, you want everyone else to do your work , and they rag on about how many complaints you have . No one cares DANEE boy.

      MORE THREATS BY THE BOARD OF NURSING , guess they are not too proud of their “investigative ” report , that is chuck full of lies . Anyone who believes this nonsense , the controlling power hungry board. Tell them to take a hike , it is UNprofessional to tell nurses this ! A person who obtains information from the board pursuant to this section may not release it to any other person or entity or use it in any proceeding or action except in connection with the board’s review of the investigation, the disciplinary interview and any administrative proceedings or appeals related to the disciplinary interview or hearing. A person who violates this subsection commits an act of unprofessional conduct.

      yes , the hidden secret society is hiding many things, kind of wave over anything points to a mistake by them, but them many mistakes are bigger than others. A CNA prevailed in court over them, a pay out of 45k partial payment. And she never even worked in AZ ! Imagine what a RN with 10 years case is worth. She applied for certificate and was denied . Wrongly , But because the board and investigators , like bonnie are liars, she went after them for false statements . Bonnie the unprofessional conduct queen. While the aag ELIZABETH A CAMPBELL, and SUNITA KRISHNA sat on their twats and let it happen . Randy Quinn , oh my , now you have to disclose this on YOUR record the rest of your life and the other corrupt board members. This is an act of unprofessional conduct , when a person tells you , it is lies don’t tell them they are liars . “you wont be the first nurse to sit in that chair and lie to us ” . every one is liar but you Randy Quinn, did we get that right ? or is that the way you were raised , you are the only true one , which you interpret as truth one. in your mindless head only . Looks like Carrie Smith took this case., and the bon lost . How many atty’s does the corrupt az board of nursing need to defend their corruption !! Another excuse to ‘go for legal advise ” and excuse it was !! it had already been signed , more violations of the open meeting information act . Bonnie and Quinn must share the same gene pool LOL !

      Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, possible text that says ‘Is Your Doctor a Frankendoctor? Frankendoctors are licensed by boards of nursing, not boards of medicine. They are not supervised by a physician, may have an online doctorate degree, and do as little as 500 hours of clinical training. Scary!
      that is their biggest mistake being licensed by the bon, you can be a PA and be under the medical board, And not be treated like a disposable nurse, throw away, what is the big deal , who cares about a nurses career .
      Nurses fired, for the most minor things , but mostly in back wards ‘southern states’ ,

      Much has been said about people in the healthcare field and horizontal violence . While a fair number who hear about cases of nurses reporting someone to the board, for retaliation , or something so minor it is not even worth anyone’s time , and should make the reporter subject of a ‘what makes you tick ” evaluation . With a full physical to see if they are hard wired and actually human. Or just basically, a mind set , if I can make you look bad, I look good grade school mentality . But they are out there . Big mistake with most licensed nurses is that the board of nursing will be aware or know that this is fake news false reporting and trust that those put in charge will have ‘common sense’ . Do not over estimate a board of nursing , especially in AZ . Oh they know this happens , but don’t care , they will go with it anyways. Job security , plus they get paid for these cases. And it is the taxpayers money they are spending so do an investigation that is more costly and time consuming than catching a terrorist. In an industry that revolves around serving others, nurses and other health professionals sometimes find that they are the ones being pushed toward a treatment program. According to a recent study, physician wellness and quality of patient care go hand-in-hand. Long hours, heavy work loads and stress among health care professionals can sometimes lead to unsafe, unprofessional behavior and impairment allegations. And that is what it generally is false allegations , nothing but someone’s hateful , dream up , how can I get this person in trouble. ? Whether is it a neighbor , jealous relative, and ex spouse wanting to make you sweat . Send a nurse for some counseling, sounds pretty benign, until you look at the lengthy and domino effect it has for life. Instead of a board, looking at them as troublemakers they use them to lie their heads off coach them what to say and even give them ‘pointers ” or added ideas. Both parties are evil.

      I am leaving a second message on this feed. Please I need nurses who have been treated with disdain and unfairness to contact me. drethics@cableone.net. I am not an Arizona State Board of Nursing employee or affiliated with them. We need to bring these concerns to the legislature and we have started the process. Please contact me as we need everyone to join or no progress will be made. There is strength in numbers.

      Please contact me at drethics@cableone.net. Even if you are retired or no longer practice nursing…..we need you. Peace be with you all 😊
