Nurses are always at risk for accusations of medical malpractice or negligence. If someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Beaumont, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who were charged with negligence and failed to hire an effective Beaumont nurse attorney.
At the time of the incident, she was employed as an RN at a hospital in Beaumont, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) years and one (1) month.
On or about March 22, 2019, while employed as an RN at a hospital in Beaumont, Texas, RN admits she took two OTC medications, Sudafed, and Benadryl, resulting in the following behaviors: stumbling, shaking and dozing off. RN’s condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in 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 patients in potential danger.
In response, RN states she was suffering from the beginning of a cold or allergies when she took one Sudafed pill at home and then 1/2 a Benadryl pill while at work. RN states she is not used to taking Benadryl and should have refused the Benadryl when it was offered to her and admits she should have gone home when she started feeling the effects of the two OTC medications reacting together. RN states she provided a urine drug screen, and it was negative.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(3)(A)&(1)(T) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(E)&(5).
However, without enough evidence to prove she’s not guilty and an effective nurse attorney in Beaumont to help her defend her side, the RN lost the case. This is the reason why the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license under disciplinary action.
