How and When to Report
Feel free to call ISNAP at any time to get more information or to get your questions answered about suspected impairment. You may also request from us a short in-service educational program by one of our staff for your facility.
If you suspect you have a problem, you may call us anytime.
Any citizen, patient, family member, nurse or administrator may report instances of impairment to either the Attorney General’s office or to ISNAP.
By Indiana State Board of Nursing Administrative Code 848 IAC 2-2-2-(11) and 848 IAC 2-3-2-(10), licensed practical and registered nurses are required to report impairment. Additionally, registered nurses are ethically required to take action as directed by the American Nurses Association’s Code of Ethics.
You may call ISNAP during the hours of 7:30am-4:30pm Monday to Friday at (317) 295-9862 or (800) 638-6623; or if you are experiencing an emergency you can contact our emergency beeper, (317) 554-7872, for help.
Help is available. Recovery from addiction is possible. Intervention and treatment do make a difference and help to return a nurse to good health and a safe nursing practice.
When you call us, you will be asked to provide details concerning the incident, the name of the nurse and if you know it, his or her address, phone number and place of employment. You will be asked to provide your name and contact information. Your information remains confidential during the investigation and is only divulged to the Attorney General’s Office if proceedings are undertaken.
