    the nursing board accused hill of failing to report information crucial to the safety of a patient and of failing to maintain accurate patient records. it also said hill should not have been administering medicine in the recovery room without consulting tucker. hill said tucker had ok'd her giving medication in the past -- and she believed she had his permission to do it without checking with him first.

    rather than fight the charges, hill gave up her nursing license.

    How sad! Although she made several mistakes, this CRNA is not a 'murderer' and the fact that they are trying to paint this out to be some '30 y/o grudge' is repulsive.

    This atrocity is only one of many reasons why I am getting the h*** out of nursing after 36-1/2 years.

    At least if I get hired as a Cashier, I won't have to worry about being arrested for murder if I unintentionally screw up.

    i would seem to me that if they had any concrete evidence they would have brought charges before now, this has been likr 5 years

    let this be a warning...do everything 'by the book' you never know when you will be called on to explain something that has erased from your memory years ago
