On or about January 8, 2008, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a hospital in Decatur, the RN lacked fitness to practice nursing in that she was diagnosed with and sought treatment for, prescription pain medication addiction. 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 patient in potential danger.

In response to the incident, the RN states she now recognizes emotions that in the past triggered drug usage and that she has since learned how to deal with those emotions. She states she has a strong support system, including twelve (12) step meetings, church, and family. The RN further states she feels she has proven that she has dealt with her past addiction. Additionally, she states that every drug test she has been negative, and that stated that she did not qualify for any treatment options due to the length of time and her abstinence of the drug she had abused.

Having all these problems was never easy and should never be dealt with alone. You need someone who can help you at times like these, someone that is very reliable and knows what to do if you are facing such allegations or accusations. Any problem always has a solution.

The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse attorney could have helped the case become better for the RN. So if you ever encounter such an issue, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 for a confidential consultation.
