Are there any reporting obligations for licensed professionals?
Yes. Institutions and licensed professionals are expected to report misconduct or dangerous, inappropriate behavior to the Minnesota Board of Nursing.
Institutions (and chief nursing executives/administrative officers) are expected to report:
- The revocation, limitation, or suspension of nurse privileges.
- Dismissals of nurses.
- Disciplinary action against nurses.
- The resignation of nurses before disciplinary proceedings.
Licensed professionals working with licensed nurses are expected to report "any conduct believed to constitute grounds for disciplinary actions," as well as unethical, unprofessional, or mentally unstable behavior.
