License Complaint Investigation Against Registered Nurse Closed with Finding of No Probable Cause

Posted on Firm News, Professional Licensure Investigations by Robert Nicholson

After considering the rebuttal statement prepared by the Firm on behalf of a Registered Nurse accused of improperly handling narcotics, the Probable Cause Panel for the Board of Nursing determined that probable cause did not exist and directed that the case be closed by the Florida Department of Health.  The Firm fully investigated the allegations contained in the preliminary complaint against the Registered Nurse, and specifically that the Nurse improperly handled and disposed of narcotics, as well as engaging in other “questionable” conduct.  The Firm identified several inconsistencies in the record and highlighted evidence which confirmed that the client had not acted improperly and had not violated the Nursing Practice Act.
