How can PMHS justify keeping a nurse on staff who was just arrested last week on drug charges? Who works in an area with patients who have mental issues and chemical dependency problems. It's bad enough they pay her to be on her telephone all night, but when she is arrested with a parole jumper and drugs, just doesn't make sense to me, especially since she has only been there a couple of months. There are plenty of new nurses wanting jobs, nurses who don't have drug problems, and don't talk about their patients on FB.

Maybe you need to go to human resources and pass along the information. Also, if you have proof that the person was on FB talking about patient information, please bring that proof to the attention of the HIPAA privacy officer.

Innocent until prove guilty. If found guilty she will probably still keep her job, or move on to the next one. The State Board of Nursing makes that decision.
just curious
