How can nurse overcome sleeping on the job accusation? – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889
A home healthcare nurse was allegedly sleeping while caring for a patient and a family member reported him to his employer.
The home care agency fired the nurse and reported the firing to the state board of nursing. When fired, the nurse was told that despite no one being harmed by the sleeping on the job allegation, it is required to report the firing of any employee.
As I have emphasized many times, the state board of nursing’s major responsibility is to protect the public from incompetent and unsafe practice.
