5 tools to protect your nursing license and your livelihood
Over the past 20 years, I’ve represented more than 300 healthcare providers before the various licensing boards. I’ve seen nurses accused of practicing medicine without a license for misunderstanding the dosage, nurses accused of neglect for failing to answer another nurse’s patient’s alarm like when the other nurse said she would answer it, and nurses accused of abuse for removing a patient’s hand off a foley catheter as the patient was trying to yank it out.
It surprised me that so many healthcare providers would find themselves in this position. I looked at my cases and noticed there were similar issues that ran through them. I figured if I could develop a system that could help healthcare providers prevent being before the board, it would be helpful.
