az Board of Nursing.

http://omagdigital.com/print.php?pages=4&issue_id=216620&ref=1 The Az put out guide lines for nurses to use social media, basically don’t use the patients’ name, unless the patient agrees to it and says so in the post. Being fearful of our governmental agencies is always the first step and link to opposing oppressions. Nursing Boards can easily destroy careers and patient safety issues, it is the job of every nurse to confront these issues and report it to the general public. Amanda Trujillo of Az has clearly brought forward the issues of patient safety and education and nurse abuse. She is a leader in what is right for our patients, believe in her.

The board of nursing in Az is not known, through this case and more, to be honest. When they present cases with a geriatric judge administer of law who falls asleep during hearings the asst attny generals have field days presenting false statements against nurses whom have been singled out as dissenters by profiteers, against the health and well being of not only the general public but our economic system. There are many, many cases not unlike Amandas’ which throw good nurses under the bus. Many complaints can definitely put the board in an awkward position but many cases can be resolved in a humane way without demonstrating power actions that clearly define the Board as corrupt; simply to make a case. They have destroyed public trust just as the Az Medical Board has by just recently terminating its director for many state violations. Basically the same thing as saying we’re not doing our job for protecting the public. Both agencies are connected in their behaviors. The Az Board probably does have a legal case against Amanda but their Draconian approach to such a minor violation demonstrates their inability to fully understand the roles of bedside nursing. Nurses with bedside skills play a huge role in the well being of our communities. Disciplining them for these kinds of minor violations only demonstrates the Boards inability to remember what the founder of nursing did. The already wealthy woman who jumped in the muck of war to make a difference for her fellow man. A woman not in fear of questioning the physicians. I know the details in this case and in others, and the Board has destroyed the opportunity to create a nurse willing to open alternative avenues of treatments. Their actions in this case, and in others, alerts the public that public agencies do not pay attention of the real needs of the patient. They only follow the money, which has rimracked the health care systems through-out the state. There have been doctors, and for profit industries, fleecing America for years and in many cases getting away with murder. The real victims here are certainly the bedside nurses who came into this profession simply to help those that need it. I’ve seen many issues in my 35 years in the clinical area of nursing and have seen my share of corruption but none with such blatancy and abuse of power. And so what do you call a Dr who discharges a patient with a 1″X2″ hole in her esophagus and says its OK to drink fluids? He put that hole there. Doesn’t tell her, doesn’t document it, and doesn’t tell anybody else. You’re right, the doctor is a “Quack” of the highest order and these are the kind of witnesses the Az Board uses to make cases against good nurses like Amanda Trujillo, R.N. No matter what the Boards’ decision now is, Amanda will always be an R.N. This post will hopefully reach about 1000 governmental health agencies. Feel free to forward it as well. All you nurses get the word out there and help stop nurse abuse and promote patient safety and education. The next abused nurse could be you

I have been a registered nurse for 33 years. I live near Laughlin, Neveda and do private duty nursing of many different types. Most assignments are generally related to newly discharged clients that still need assistance with medication administration as well help with activities of daily living.

Private duty nursing, or home health nursing will be a profession that continues to be more prominent in the next coming years for several years. Those reasons stem from the changing environment of not only limited care in the critical care arena but diminished returns that physicians will be seeing from Obamacare. This may not be fully clear at the moment but many of the changes directly effect how much a physician can get from each patient.

For many years the health care system has gone somewhat unmonitored and many administrations have gone for a profit health care system. Perhaps its always been for profit but its profits frequently remained within the system that created it and further contributed to its quality and progress. The overall quality of the U.S. health care system has dropped 30 levels since the 1990s. About the same time that corporate America entered, with earnest.  Those levels of quality also cost the tax payer four times as much than say France or Germany. The third leading cause of death in the U.S. is medical errors and over-treatment.
