I do not accept the Administrative Law Court rules related to hearsay and false documentation against April Cobia for factual reasons never brought forward. The adminstrative law court judge has the the final say as the trier to determine the resolution of a case. No nurse has ever prevailed against the court either on the first go around and or appeal. The rules of evidence seen in higher courts have no meaning in this court owned by the AZBN. Steven Kessel, the crooked Adm Law Court Judge, ruled on the Cobia hearsay and false documentations complaints that he had no legal standing to rule on that. But he did. Its ‘AZBN, its all good.’
I‘ve read 100s of adm law court cases and interviewed many disciplined nurses and few who deny the AZBN motions for monitoring ever return to nursing. Diane Milhaskey, the initial Adm Law Court judge was the usual repeat offender by allowing Sunita Kreshna to violate ARS 32-1263.03 by moving on several Cobia’s complaints by their own motions. Kind of basic law limiting people like Krishna & Capone from filing its own income taxes; fabricated in response for complaints she filed against former employers as this behavior of perjury and tampering with evidence is ancient history. Some of the dates of the complaints are older than four years which is in direct violation of the Health Professional Regulatory Act that was enacted in 2013. Its an act of Arizona Congress that is ignored over and over by the AZBN, Adm Law Court and Az Attorney general.
Details of the Nurse Cobia case represent many of the issues bedside nurses have experienced beyond the scope of fairness which when delivered by organizations that have No Laws to follow reveal details that make excellent evidence for Nursing History. The laws are written in English but to the AZBN they simply do not exist. They really don’t.
There is a perfect window into the destruction of nursing coming from the organizaton of nurses who’ve been retaliated against for reporting of quacks and hacks in the the health care system. The social and career annihilation of Nurse Cobia represents, ‘No Good Deed Goes Unpunished’. When I first heard that I had no idea what it meant. I really did hear this early in my Az working career. After working in Arizona for a few years I know precisely what it means. Any reports of errors generally results in tar & feathering of the reporter.
If you are a student and remembering your history, throughout your entire life you’d best rethink filing for nursing in Arizona, If you spit balled somebody in the the six grade the AZBN will find it and they’ll not give you a license if you failed to declare you were a former spit baller. No joke.
Nurse Cobia’s disorderly conduct charge that was dismissed was presented, again, as a Board’s motion which is also a violation by presenting evidence not jurisdictionally reviewed. I can not count the number of police reports, ancient history, that are included in cases that were dismissed or not reviewed in the county they were written in. In most states this is a civil rights violation, they don’t even know in Arizona. Not all public documents are meant for republication.
The long list of violations in the April Cobia case is not outstanding and is another case that can be added to Nursing History which this site’s primary mission is. The fact this site contains names and evidence of corrupted Board members. Like Randy Quinn, J. Ridenour, Kim Delorenzo, Shawna Bonner, Linda Monas, Beth A. Campbell, Sunita Krishna, Katherine Eldridge, Lola Folre, Dolores Hurtado, Doug Parlin and Savahna Keliipuleole. If you don’t see you name here, be patience, we’ll get to you or Karma will get you first, We Hope.
Can one ignore the extraordinary, absolutely eloquent depositions posted by Krishna in the Cobia case? No one can not. I thought Hemmingway would climax at the bold, smooth sarcasm exhibited on a platter of student optimism so commonly seen in automated cases. Under scrutiny there are different students doing the legal briefs as some got the omnipotent flare of a corrupted shoe in government, when other students do not.
The display of the modern day card swipe treatment of nurse issues can create Hall of Fame Social Abortion events such as creating false documentation confirming perjury as in the testimony of K. Williams. Not sure how AZBN investigator can testify to Nurse Cobia’s ethnicity roots and the use of the ‘N’ word when the only person who heard it was a black person dressed in African garb whose twang trained ear heard Mississippi. Repeat after me, “Don’t confuse me with facts, my mind is made up.” Case dismissed but still brought forward. Perjury by documentation unrelated . Just another violation that falls apart as another lead into alledged HIPPA violation is not supported by federal statute and must include fraud for violations to be considered. The fact Nurse Cobia had medical records, off site, of former patients in itself and by itself is not a violation of federal statute whom has standing on these records. The presentation of documents aligning Nurs Cobia’s possession of alledged medical records is easily countered with computer timing accuracy and demonstrates nothing but arrogance and or negligence. There are multiple documents available throughout this case that will remain in Nursing History.
