The assistance of a nurse attorney is valuable if you’re facing a case before the Texas Board of Nursing. Your defense can be strengthened further if you’re going to face the Board, even if your case is multiple instances of failure to follow a procedure. There are times where mistakes at work could be inevitable, which is why a nurse attorney can assure full assistance over such errors. Disciplinary actions could have been thought about by the Texas Board of Nursing if this particular RN from Brownsville, Texas hired a nurse attorney over her case.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed at a hospital in Brownsville, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and four (4) months.
An incident involving an RN happened on or about June 27, 2018, through September 25, 2018, the RN withdrew two (2) tablets of Tramadol, one (1) tablet of Acetaminophen-Codeine 300-30mg, one (1) tablet of Alprazolam, and one (1) syringe of Morphine, from the medication dispensing system for patients but failed to follow the facility’s policy and procedure for wastage of the unused portions of the medications. The RN’s conduct left medications unaccounted for, was likely to deceive the hospital pharmacy, and placed the pharmacy in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
In response to the incident, the RN neither denies nor admits the allegations or the accusation against her. But still, this put her in a bad situation. The Texas Board of Nursing will subject the RN to disciplinary action which may also put her license at risk.
However, without the help of an experienced nurse attorney, the RN’s defense led to the suspension of her license. The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) found her guilty for the complaint against her. She lost the case simply because the RN failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney.
