Hello all! I am wondering if anyone on here knows how I can find out the true reason for a nurse being fired?! Long story short,my mothers good friend (46) was fired from her job as a "head nurse".My mothers in bad health&this lady "helps" her&will visit my mom,help w meds,etc.the "friend"never admitted to being fired,just said she decided she didnt want to do it&quit...taking a job paying a third less!Long story short...my moms always in pain&is on Fentanyl(morphine)patches7has been for 9 years.Well wouldnt you know it..again meds are missing...only this time,the entire half of a months worth is gone.Which means my mom will now be going through major w/d's&pain for 2 weeks because this person took them. The reason I think its this ex nurse is because she was working for someone I barely know with a home health aide company&this person rec'd a letter a year or 2 ago saying this "ex nurse" can not work there due to her being fired from a nursing job for stealing several controlled substances!! Unfortunately my moms naive&doesnt want to believe its her or get police involved. But this also casts a cloud over the 5 or 6 people that do visit my mom including myself. So Im trying to have printed proof that she was fired for this very reason,which will then open my moms eyes! I hope ! lol Isnt this public info? How do I find out? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Ps. If anyone knows how my mom would go about trying to get new patches early besides paying cash,please let me know! The dr knows my mom has had a perfect track record for the past 9 years shes been on them. Thanks so much!!

This website might help as it is a nurses' licensing board.

www.ncsbn.org

I would hope that they would have documents available regarding any disciplinary actions. The violations would surely effect her license to practice nursing?
