Iowa nurse’s license suspended indefinitely

An indefinite license suspension was recently ordered for a Mason City registered nurse after he allegedly committed unethical practices, the Globe Gazette reported on June 17.

According to reports, 35-year-old nurse Zachariah Jonathan Davis has been convicted of several criminal charges, including counts of domestic violence that he committed in 2013. Records also showed that Davis was convicted in 2014 of drunken driving that resulted in injury. As authorized by the Iowa Code, the state’s Board of Nursing is suspending the licenses of nurses who have been convicted of a crime that may interfere with their position. In the case of Davis, the Board ruled out that his violent nature has violated their code of conduct. Davis is scheduled to appear in a hearing with the nursing board in March.
