False accusations are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied over the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an RN in San Antonio failed to do so.

On or about March 9, 2018, through March 29, 2018, while employed as a Registered nurse in a medical facility in San Antonio, the RN withdrew Dilaudid and Hydrocodone from the medication dispensing system for patients in excess frequency and/or dosage of the physician’s orders and failed to document and completely failed to accurately document administration of the medications in the patient’s medication administration records. Additionally, the RN failed to follow the facility’s policy and procedures for wastage of the unused portions of the medications. The RN further misappropriated or failed to take precautions to prevent the misappropriation of the medications.

Subsequently, she engaged in the intemperate use of Hydromorphone and Morphine in that she submitted a specimen for a drug screen that produced a positive result for Hydromorphone and Morphine.

During the hearing, the RN acknowledges she did relapse and misappropriate narcotics from the hospital as alleged. She states she recognizes the patterns and has recommitted herself to her recovery, including re-entering therapy to manage these issues and taking full responsibility for her decisions and mistakes.

The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.

Because the RN failed to provide a nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
