Hi, My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provided you with Excellent Service,
I am so sorry to hear that your son had a stroke, I never even realized that a child that young could have a stroke. I hope that he is doing well. Being a mother, I can certainly understand what you were going through and how priorities change. I am equally sorry to hear what the State Board of Nursing has done to you.
Q. Did you ever report to them what had happened to your son and why you did not complete the drug program in 2004 ?
Thank you for your additional information,
When an individual's name is XXXXX XXXXX the list maintained by the Office of the Inspector General, US Department of Health and Human Services, they cannot work in any facility which participates in the Medicare, Medicaid and all Federal health care programs, and if any facility which participates in these programs hires an individual whose name appears on the Exclusions list, will be subject to civil monetary penalties,
However, you can apply for reinstatement. First, you must find out when your period of exclusion ends because applications for reinstatement will not be rejected if they are submitted before the expiration of the exclusionary period.
In order to apply for reinstatement, send a written request to OIG at the address I have provided below. The OIG will then provide you with a Statement and Authorization forms which you must fill out, sign before a Notary Public, and return to the Office of the Inspector General. The OIG will evaluate the information you have included in your forms and will send you written notification of their decision. The process can take 120 days or longer, so you have to be patient.
Send your request for forms and reinstatement to the following address:
HHS, OIG, OIAttn: ExclusionsP.O. Box 23871Washington, DC 20026

Bonus and Positive Feedback on survey is very much appreciated,
I wish I could tell you that there is a faster way, but there isn't. I do not know what reason the nursing Board gave, possibly that you did not complete the drug program that they put you on. Maybe, before you request the forms for reinstatement, call them first and ask them why your name is XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXXX list and also ask when it was placed on the list. That way, you will know what issues you need to address in your request for reinstatement. I understand that it has been a long time, but now that you are in the home stretch, I do not think it would be wise to push the Office of the Inspector General, it's better to have them on your side, rather than working against you. Once you send in the Notarized forms for reinstatement, you can call them from time to time and ask the status, but I would not start pressing them before they even sent you the forms. Please be kind enough to give me a positive rating so that I can receive credit for researching your question and giving you Answers and information. Thank you for understanding,
