|Original Issue Date:||8/15/1991|
Licensee was employed as a nurse on the neurology unit at Barnes Hospital in St Louis, Missouri. From 11/5/97 to 12/10/97, Licensee overrode the patient profiles in the Pyxis system for at least 15 patients, withdrawing Demerol for which there were no physician’s orders, and for which no chart entries were made indicating the administration of the drug. During said period, Licensee misappropriated Demerol, a Schedule II controlled substance, and self-injected it while at work. After admitting to the aforementioned misconduct, Barnes Hospital required Licensee to enter into a “last Chance Contract,” whereby she was required to get treatment and to comply with the requirements of the Employee Assistance Program for hospital employees. In January 1998, Licensee submitted to a random urine drug screen pursuant to the requirement of the Employee Assistance Program, results of which were positive for Cocaine. At the time Licensee misappropriated Demerol, she was under the care of several dentists for the treatment of oral pain. When contacted by the State Board of Nursing investigator relative to the investigation of the acts and events alleged herein, Licensee admitted the above facts. Employment Restrictions: Licensee shall only work as a nurse at a facility where there is on-site supervision by another nurse or physician.
Happy Fourth Anniversary!
