Scenario #4: The actions taken against a nurse’s license are public knowledge. Many state boards of nursing publish this information routinely. The state of Wisconsin publishes a newsletter that includes this information four times a year. Go to the following link. http://dsps.wi.gov/Boards-Councils/Board-Pages/Board-of-Nursing-Main-Page/Board-of-Nursing-Newsletters/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery Once there click the January 2017 link. Scroll through the newsletter. At the end you will see the actions taken by the board of nursing. Click on several of the Registered Nurse cases (it shows in the right column what type of nurse, and you can open the case by clicking the link in the far left column that says ‘Order No’) and read about them. Look at the case listed of ‘Amanda Anderson’ (the first one listed).
1)What legal issues exist in this case?
2) What ethical issues exist in this case?
3)If you were working with this nurse and noted the behaviors, what would you do and how would you communicate this?
4) Are there other cases that you found interesting? Why?
