You may recall that back in September of last year I blogged about at least one complaint being filed against Nurse Allysha Almada and Vicki Lin with our Board of Nursing (BRN). It’s come to my attention that BRN investigators have interviewed several Huntington Memorial Hospital (HMH) nurses regarding the Almada/Lin affair.
At this point I have no idea what these nurses told the BRN investigators or what questions that the BRN investigators had for the nurses. However, as I learn more I’ll be sure to share the information on The Nurse Unchained. Of course the BRN investigators may conclude that there wasn’t a violation of our nurse practice act in which case the allegation can be closed with or without merit. However if its decided that the allegation is substantiated then the allegation can be refer to the Attorney General for formal disciplinary action or refer to cite and fine. This is call an accusation and if a nurse has an accusation filed against him/her it will show up on a license search.
