Gary L. Simpler represented a health system in an arbitration case where a nurse was terminated for diverting narcotic medication.  The arbitrator upheld the termination based on evidence that showed the nurse’s ID was used over 40 times to access the narcotic bin in the hospital’s computerized medicine distribution system but not withdrawing the narcotic, yet the number of vials decreased. Although the nurse denied taking any of the narcotic, he was the only nurse to work on each of the days when the narcotic bin was accessed with his ID and there was no evidence to show his ID was obtained by another person.
