Dear Raven,

I have had the same thing happen to me at my doctors office where the nurse takes my blood pressure and it is so tight that it hurts my arm. On top of that my doctor comes in and retakes my blood pressure and does not hurt me and my blood pressure is fine and tells me that the nurse did not do it properly. I think what I am going to do next time I will tell the nurse I am going to pass on her taking it. Also, I would show the doctor the full email that she sent you. A doctor is sworn to patient doctor confidentiality. I remember you saying there were so many nice nurses that your doctor had in the first practice that I am sure he could find someone else. There must me more patients there that are on to her. The more people that complain about her the better. While you are at her mercy try not to let her know you are on to her. Also, sooner or later you have to unfriend her on facebook. So sorry you are in this predicament, but I am sure you will work it out. You're a pretty smart lady. Sending you my love and a big hug.

Dear Raven,

I started reading your spoiler column when I began watching ABC shows after my CBS shows were canceled. I have followed your battle with cancer as well, though I have never commented or contacted you.

I am also an Oncology RN who works in the chemo/infusion office of a regional oncology center. I understand your complicated situation with your beloved oncologist. And if I am understanding correctly, the oncologist is aware of the situation but has chosen to keep the nurse on staff. This woman has crossed so many professional lines that it makes my head spin. Even befriending a patient (or even previous patient) on social networking is a huge ethical misstep. I know you do not want to cause issues for your oncologist, and rightly so since he seems to be the only one you've had good care from, but I agree with the person above me: show the email to the doctor. Or send a letter and copy of the email to the state board of nursing. Also, FYI, you should be able to look up this nurse's record on the board of nursing's website. It will tell if there are any disciplinary actions or complaints against her. Although it seems like you already have a good read on her. :(
