The other members would listen keenly to the proceedings then comment at the end of the case. This paper will focus on reporting on two out of the five cases presented to the Board on the 16th February, 2012. The first case involved a female Registered Nurse who was on probation for alcohol consumption and possible drug abuse while on duty. During the previous ruling, she was enrolled in the Indiana State Nurses Assistance Program (ISANP). This is a program that provides rehabilitation and monitoring services for all Licensed Practical Nurses and registered nurses who have been involved in alcohol and drugs abuse. According to the ISBN program, a Registered Nurse is expected to sign a Recovery Monitoring Agreement which binds them to the ISANP regulation. According to this program, the nurse is expected to attend the group meetings and report to the Board periodically at scheduled times. The nurse is also expected to undertake drug screenings and interviews at scheduled times and send the report back to the Board for review (Indiana State Board of Nursing [ISBN], 2011). In this case, the nurse was not compliant to the ISANP requirements. She failed to attend the group meetings and report to the Board. ...
When asked about her misconduct by a Board member, she was unable to respond. She claimed that she was a skilled team leader, and thus the Board should not suspend her license. She also claimed to have completed her probation period without any arrest or charges for possession of drugs or engaging in illegal activities. She further explained to the Board that she had practiced as a Registered Nurse for 6 years for which has always been committed and professional. The panel discussed the issues concerning the case aloud before passing a ruling. All but one of the Board members ruled that her license should be suspended. This was because she did not show commitment to the rehabilitation program. She also failed to observe the rules stipulated in the ISNAP even after signing the Recovery Monitoring Agreement (RMA). The ISNAP stipulates that a nurse who violates the program’s rules shall be disciplined accordingly (ISBN, 2011). Although her license was suspended, she can appeal the decision in 6 months according to IC 25-1-6-5.5 in the ISBN (2011). The next case involved a male nurse from Illinois who was previously denied licensure due to a drug conversion charge in Illinois. Following this charge he was put on probation from the State of Illinois. He also held a Registered Nurse License from Arizona. He was under a drug testing program for the last four years from which he had been committed to the rules. He had been attending the rehabilitation meeting and regularly sending the reports to the Board. Although the panel sought to identify the cause of his drinking problem, he claimed to have had no problem at the beginning of his addiction. In his defense, he claimed to be sober for the past four years and diligently followed the rules of the ...
