In this matter we encouraged our client to self-report her termination to IDFPR and have her evaluated to determine that she was fit to practice. Furthermore we investigated the cause for the positive alcohol screen and were able to convince the Nursing Board at an informal hearing that it was not alcohol that caused the positive screen. Our client received a non-disciplinary outcome.
NURSE RECEIVED A THREE (3) COUNT COMPLAINT FROM IDFPR ALLEGING THAT SHE WAS TERMINATED FROM GENESIS MEDICAL CENTER FOR TESTING POSITIVE FOR ALCOHOL.
