  1. I made the mistake of using CME on various courses. It didn't help. Very basic info. I scored 22/25 without looking much up. It was way easier than the PANCE imo.
  2. Also, I'm not sure how I'm going to explain this to the new employer. I didn't tell him initially because I didn't think there was any point going into it. Now, I'm going to look like a liar. I literally worked there for 2 days and the place was sketchy so I left. Yet, even this is going to follow me around? I can't even quit a job without BS. I'm really starting to hate this profession.
  3. Hello. I recently worked at a job for 2 days, seeing around 10 patients. I was covered under malpractice insurance at this job. However, this practice was very disorganized and backwards. I decided to leave. I now have a new job that is requesting previous malpractice coverage. I do not want to draw attention to the fact that I very briefly worked at this job. Would you recommend listing this previous malpractice insurance? Is there any way to check if I was on malpractice insurance in the past...like a national database or something?
  4. I agree with you. I've been practicing for around the same amount of time and I'm ready to call it quits. I work full-time as a PA now, but I also have a side business. If the business takes off (or if I could find another business that will), I'm looking at getting out of the profession, which is fine by me. For me, it's not so much the patients as it is the bureaucracy. I don't like being told what to do by administrators that don't understand medicine themselves. I also hate the CYA nature of medicine and the massive rules/guidelines that we have to follow. I like doing my own thing
  5. Try to see if you could have some kind of pre-trial intervention and get the record sealed/expunged. There are plenty of health care professionals that have gotten DUIs that have had no effect on their careers (I personally know some of them).
  6. I have multiple references and I already know which one gave the bad reference. This is early in my career, yes.
  7. I talked to a few attorneys (not in my state though....on referral). They seemed unimpressed and basically told me that quality assurance files can be sent between hospitals without my knowledge and that the information in those files are actually protected from me. Also, I was notified of this "withdrawal of privilege" verbally and not in writing. I signed nothing. I don't even know what to think about that. Basically, I have no idea what's going on, what I have to disclose on future job applications, why this even happened, or what exactly is in that file. Is it many complaints that
  8. Thanks for the response. I actually did some research over the past day and found this: https://www.bannerhealth.com/NR/rdonlyres/42F62C4B-17FD-4FE4-BD15-331C36975F29/75461/BannerDesertCredentialingManualJan2016.pdf Not every facility appears to have the question below, but many do. I'm nervous that it actually is reportable.
  9. I'm not really concerned about the job that I lost because of this (though it has been very inconvenient). I'm more concerned about my ability to obtain employment going forward. Luckily, I have money saved up and I was able to move back in with my parents. But I'm currently unemployed and technically homeless. I was supposed to start the new job on Monday. I had already left the old the job when I was contacted on Friday and told that they were not hiring me. I just found out a few new tidbits just before posting the OP and now I'm scared that this will affect me for the rest of m
  10. From my current supervisor. In my practice, I had a significant turnover of SPs. I was on good terms with my previous supervisors. I had some bumps in the current one, but I thought we resolved the issues (apparently not). To be honest, I'm not sure. There's apparently a file lying around that I don't have access to. There are apparently things written in there about me, but I really haven't been able to get a straight answer as to what all it consists of. I've had "reviews" in the past, but all of this was downplayed. Further, others in my group also had these reviews. After
  11. Found this thread: http://www.physicianassistantforum.com/index.php?/topic/5398-denied-hospital-privileges/ Any thoughts?
  12. Hello all. I've been a practicing PA for over 3 years with the same employer. I recently left that employer and was set to work for an employer in the same system, only to be called by the HR department in that new company a week before I was supposed to start in this position. She told me that they will be withdrawing my privileges (based on a bad reference), as opposed to denying privileges, so that it wouldn't cause me any adverse issues when applying elsewhere. I've never had an adverse events against my license or any other issues. My question is: does this ruin my career
