RN Reported by Employer for Drug Diversion Has Board of Nursing Case Dismissed

Professional:
Registered Nurse

Primary Issue:
Registered nurse was terminated by his employer for suspected drug use and drug diversion following high usage Pyxsis report.

Benefit of Using Chapman Law Group:
The nurse retained our attorneys to assist the RN in the State Board of Nursing investigation related to allegations of drug diversion and possible substance abuse. We obtained the complete personnel file, the urine drug screen results and fit for duty assessment. We obtained an independent substance abuse evaluation by a HPRP-approved provider and thoroughly prepared the RN for his interview with the State investigator. During the Investigator interview, the RN was able to explain the high usage Pyxsis report due to his position as a Charge nurse and Preceptor in the ICU. The substance abuse evaluation and drug screen results confirmed there was no evidence of drug use.

Result:
The case was closed following the meeting with the Investigator and no disciplinary action taken against the RN.
