Common Illinois Board of Nursing Complaints

IDFPR disciplinary actions against nurses typically fall into one of the following categories:

  • Unprofessional Conduct: Actions that are likely to deceive or defraud the public, such as falsifying documents while applying for a nursing license or falsifying patient records.
  • Unsafe Practices: Engaging in reckless behavior or providing substandard care that may endanger the health of patients.
  • Unethical Practices: Discrimination, harassment, inappropriate sexual relations with patients, breach of patient confidentiality, and similar unprofessional practices.
  • Criminal Convictions: A conviction for criminal activities in which there was a plea of guilty or no contest. Most felonies and misdemeanors fall into this category.
  • Substance Abuse: Alcohol or drug impairment that endangers those under their care.

When a complaint is lodged, it is reviewed to determine if it warrants an investigation. If the matter is investigated and enough evidence is uncovered, it could lead to disciplinary action, such as a reprimand, probation, suspension, or revocation of the license. Complaints could also lead to other issues, such as loss of hospital privileges or loss of provider status.
