Recidivism

Non-recidivism:Completed the 2001 probationary term and were not reported to the board of nursing for additional offenses within a four-year period from 2001 to 2005.

Recidivism: Failed the 2001 probation by having additional offenses during or after the probation.

Recidivism

Disciplined nurses who recidivated were about three years younger than those who successfully completed the 2001 remediation.

Those who were under the age of 40 years old were more likely to recidivate

logistic regression analysis
Logistic Regression Analysis

There is a negative correlation between age and recidivism, every unit increase in age decreases the odds of being a recidivist to 0.95. For a 10 year age increase, 40% decrease in the odds that the older individual recidivated

If a disciplined nurse changed employers during their 2001 probation period, she/he will be 2.55 times more likely to recidivate compared to those who remained with the same employers.

conclusions
Conclusions
  • Male nurses, LPNs/VNs, and nurses who had prior legal histories were at higher risk for recidivism.
  • Changing employers during probation, committing different types of violations were positively related with recidivism.
  • Age of the disciplined nurses was negatively related with recidivism.
recommendations
Recommendations
  • Carefully screen the prior legal histories of the disciplined nurses.
  • Focus on male nurses, LPNs/VNs, as well as those nurses at a younger age (under 40 years old).
  • Pay more attention to those who commit different types of offenses.
  • Whenever possible, encourage disciplined nurses to remain working with the same employer.
