At the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in Beaumont and had been in that position for two years and one month.
On or about August 21, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse in Beaumont, the RN and on assignment in the home of a patient, she lacked the fitness to practice professional nursing in that she was observed to be sleeping while on duty.
Her condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in patients’ conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side. However, she was not able to provide a good defense for her.
Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
