DELIVERY/CONFID~~TIAL

Ms. Tra',.;eek:

This is official notification that you will be reduced in pay
within your present class of Registered Nurse 2, range N45, step
P, $3,543 per month to step L, $3,216 effective December 1, 1994
through February 28, 1995.

This disciplinary action is taken pursuant to the Civil Service
Law of Washington State, Chapter 41.06 RCW, and the Washington
Administ:r-ative Cede, Title 356'W;'.C (HSR),· and Sections 356-34-010

(1) (a) Neglect of duty; (b) inefficiency; and (h) gross
misconduct, and 356-34-020 Reduction in salary-DemotionProcedures.
Specifically, On May 14, 1994 Offenderlll,

DOC#~hO has a

hear~ disease, presented herself to y~~ith complaints of

dizziness, lightheadedness and fatigue. In response, you
admittedly took her blood pressure and found abnormally low blood
pressures (less than 60 in the second figure). Subsequently, you
failed to record the offender's complaints or blood pressures in
the medical record or chart (Primary Encounter Repor~, DOC 13435). Furthermore, you did not info~ Dr. Christopher Badger,
Medical Duty Officer, of the complaint or low blood pressures.
Instead, you dis~issed the offender from the clinic, and she
returned to her living unit without specific instructions. These
incidents are described in more detail in the Employee Conduct
Report (ECR) completed on September 8, 1994 which is attached
hereto and incorporated herein as Attachment #1.
Minimum Health Record Documentation Requirements effective
September 3, 1993 states in pertinent part:
"DEFINITION:
ENCOUNTER:
Any face-to-face contact made by a health

You understood it was your responsibility to thoroughly review
each section of the health care manual as evidenced by your
signature on the signature sheet dated October 30, 1993. Your
signature on this sheet certified that you reviewed, understood
and could perform each procedure outlined in the Health Care
Manual. A copy is attached hereto and incorporated herein as
Attachment #2.
As a Registered Nurse(RN) you have a duty to work efficiently,
exercise sound medical jUdgement and comply with standard nursing
practices which are a part of any basic nurses training. A
trained RN should know that a physician should be made aware of
any or all abnormal physical condition(s) found during a patient
examination and that it is required .to record patient contact
(i.e. vital signs) in medical charts and records whenever a
patient is examined or treated. Recording requirements and
standards were reinforced by clinic practices regarding medical
record documentation as published under "Minimum Health Record
Documentation Requirements" in the nurses procedures manual at
this institution as stated above.
You neglected your duty and were inefficient when you admittedly
"forgot" to write the offender's complaints and blood pressure
readings in her medical records on May 14, 1994 in order to be in
compliance with standard nursing practices and the "Nurses
Procedure Manual" located in the clinic. "Forgetting to record
critical medical information related to the progression of a
heart patients condition and treatment places the patient at risk
for severe medical complications and thereby cannot be
tolerated.
You further neglected your duty, were inefficient and committed
an act of gross misconduct when you failed to notify Dr. Badger,
the Medical Duty Officer, of the offender's complaints and blood
pressure levels. You state that you didn't contact Or.· Badger
because the offender had shown abnormally low blood pressure in

0603

/

the past. But, according to Dr. Badger, your actions could have
had serious implications as stated in his memorandum to Donna
Horgan dated May 18, 1994. (Attachment #1, page 5 of 9) in
pertinent part:
1I • • • The occurrence of this episode is extremely disturbing
because Inmate
has significant ischemic heart disease for
which she receives a variety of medications. The level of
her blood pressure was such that she would be at risk for
life threatening complication such as a heart attack or a
••• (stroke) as injury from a syncopal episode if the low
blood pressure continued. Fortunately, Inmatelll is quite
insightful regarding her illness and its treaement. She
appropriately attributed this low pressure to her medication
changes and discontinued the Prozac on her own. Fortunately,
this was sufficient to correct the hypotension and there
were ne adverse consequences. Her blood pressure on May '16,
1994, was 110/80 ..• "
.

III

A review of your personnel file was conducted to assist me in
determining an appropriate sanction. Overall your work
performance was rated "normal" with a fe'li areas assessed as
"exceeds". Other information from your personnel record which is
pertinent to this review include:
1.) Letter of appreciation - reporting for work under
extreme weather condition.
2.) Letter of commendation - actions resulting in saving a
staff's life.
Your work performance has been good in some respects, however
there is a previous incident in which you failed to follow
established written procedures and demonstrated indifference in
complying with those reporting procedures. This incident coupled
with your present actions begins to establish a pattern in your
behavior which is of concern.
In determining the appropriate disciplinary action in this case,
I have weighted both your overall work history and your
willingness in assuming responsibility for your conduct as
expressed during our meeting on August 18, 1994. Therefore I am
persuaded that a reduction in your salary is appropriate for
these circumstances.
The delivery of poor Health Care performance which jeopardizes
patient care or safety cannot and will not be tolerated at this
institution. You are warned that future acts of this nature may
result in further disciplinary action inclUding dismissal.
Under the provisions of WAC 358-20-010 and 358-20-040, you have
the right to appeal this action to the Personnel Appeals Board.
Your appeal must be filed in writing at the Office of the
Executive Secretary, Personnel Appeals Board, 2828 Capitol
Boulevard, Olympia, Washington 98501, within thirty (30) days

0604

•
.

.

after the effective date stated in paragraph 1 of this letter. As
an alternative, You may file a grievance under the provisions of
Article 10 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the
Department and the Washington Public Employees Association/to
appeal this action to the Personnel Appeals Board, you'may not
pursue a grievance over the same issue.
The WACS, Department policies and Collec~ive Bargaining Agreement
are available for your review upon request.

Supervisory In\le5tigation of an ECR filed by Chris Addison, RN3 on ~ev Traweek, RN.
The ECR alleges that Nurse Traweek failed to note the blood pressure :reading on inmat~
in the patient's health record, when, in fact, the offenders history had jnc1uded cardiac
problems. In addition, it alleges that she failed to notify the medical duty officer of A blood
pressure in the log as 89/46, and in the ECR as 88/54.
~
Pinally, the ECR outlined a failure on the part of Nurse Traweek to register complaints
expressed by inmate
with regard \0 diZZiness and Iightheadedncss. It was the feeling of
"the supervising nurse that patient safety, indifference toward patient 'tIelfare, an~ a liIethreatening condition all existed ~s a result of thcs~ actions.
"

III

On the weekend ~ question, May 14 llnd 15,1994, inmate_had h~r blood pressure taken
twice on Saturday by Nurse Traweek. Initially tl reading of 54/'44 wa~ obtained. Subsequently,
Nurse Traweek used the wall mounted unit and recorded a re~ding o( 88.t54. ~ohnson
took inmate_blood pressure on Sunday, with a readin.,g of 60/52. Inma\e_
medications'h:d7ecenUY been changed, with Protac being prescribed the previous Thursday.
The inmate was concerned about her symptoms, and yet there was no documentation that she
had ever ooen seen, let alone that any blood pressures had been taken.
A memo qated May 18, 1994, by Christopher Badger, Medical Direct9r, to I?onna Morgan,
Health Care Manager, expressed his strong concerns with regard to t~e manner in which this
case had be~fl handled. Dr. Badger went on to point out that with in~l\ate_history of heart
disease, s~e was al risk for life-threatening complications, such as he~rt attack or stroke.
Inmate_herself, disconlinu'!d the Prozac which WdS prescribed (or her. Her blood pr!!Ssure
is documented as being 110/80 on May 16, 1994.
1n this particular case~ the ECR had to be sent to the employee by Certified Mail on May 26,
.1994, since she was "not able to receive it at home and had some diIfi~ulty going to the post
office for It, even though tldvised to do so by Nurse Addison. She indicates that she finally
received it Monday, June 6, 1994. Nurse Traweek indicates that during the period in question,
she was extrenlcly busy, and while she did enter her findings in the 24-hour-log., she did not
enter it in the medicZll CiJe. She raised question with regard to the seVerity of the blood pressure
problem,·since lhis particular inmate has tl chronic history low blo04 pressure and had not
been, in her mind, prescribed any medication for that problem. In r~ality, the hellrt disease
experienced by jnmat. had led lo her to be on several medicati~ns, to include: Mediprol, a
calcium blocker, "Nitrobid, and Prozac. These medications were tec~nical1y ordered for her
heart, tlnd not specifically for hypotension, but they do effect blood pressure !lnd Medjprol is
indicated for blood pressure probl~ms.

Supervisory Investigation: Bev Traweek, RN
Page 2

June 10, 1994

In summary, it can be concluded that the necessity to repeat the bleod pr~sure ~t should . have led to a contact with the medical duty officer, as well as a review of the. file.in which it
would have been noted that her medications now included Prozae. The prudent course of
action was not taken in this case, and therefore it can be concluded that the patienes welfare
was~~u~e~
.
For the record, the union representative for Nuxse Traweek has asked that this ECR be
dismissed as a result of the institution's failure to meet established time frames associated with'
the report being delivered to the employee. My investigation of that situation has revealed that
institution met its obligations with regud to that issue.

SUBJECT:

_DOC~~

M.D., Medical Director

I saw inmate~on May 16, 1994, for evaluation of her right ankle
ulcer which we are treating.
At that time she related a . e r
disturbing occurrence over the week-end. According to inmate
she came to the clinic both on Saturday, May 14, 1994, and Sun ay
May 15, 1994, complaining of dizziness, light-headedness and
fatigue.
She related that her blood pressure was taken by Bev
Traweek, RN, with the automatic machine and a reading of 54/44 was
obtained.
A repeat was 88/54. She was released from the clinic
without specific instructions. She continued to be symptomatic and
again came to the clinic on Sunday, May 15, 1994~ Cindy Johnson,
~took her blood pressure at that time and'it was 60/52.
Inmate
_
was particularly concerned about these low blood pressures
because she had had a change in medication including an increase in
a beta blocker lopressor and institution of Prozac therapy both on
May 12, 1994.
She was again dismissed from the clinic without
soecific instructions. Of partiCUlar concern is that there is no
documentation in the chart that indicates the patient was even seen
let alone these low blood pressures were taken. I was not informed
either Saturday, May 14, 1994, or Sunday, May IS, 1994, that this
had occurred.
The occurrence of this episode is extremely disturbing because
Inmate. has significant ischemic heart disease for which she
receives a variety of medications. The level of her blood pressure
was such that she would be at risk for life threatening
complication such as a heart attack or a stoke as well as injury
from a syncopal episode if the low blood pressure continued.
Fortunately, Inmatelllllis quite insightful regarding her illness
and its treatment. ~appropriately attributed this low pressure
to her medication changes and discontinued the Prozac on her own.
Fortunately, this was sufficient to correct the hypotension and
there were no adverse consequences. Her blood pressure on May 16,
1994, was 110/80.
I believe this is extremely poor nursing practice on the part of
both Nurse Traweek and Nurse Johnson.
I would consider this
malpractice.
