When you need help with your case filed to the Texas Board of Nursing, it is important to call a nurse attorney in Lewisville. On or about January 30, 2020, while employed as a Registered Nurse in Lewisville, the RN lacked the fitness to practice nursing in that she was found to be sleeping while on duty. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that it adversely affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in the patient’s conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patient in potential danger.

In response to the incident, the RN states during the night the room she was in became unusually cold and in an attempt to stay warm she wrapped up in her sweater and completed her charting. She states she started reading on her iPhone, and a moment later the patient’s mother opened the door. She states at that point she realized she lightly dozed off for a brief moment. The RN states it was a momentary, unintentional event, that should not be considered a lack of fitness. She states she would not consider herself to have been in a deep sleep and was easily aroused, alert and oriented. She states she was not under any influence of drugs or alcohol.
