The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN/LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
At the time of the initial incident, he was employed as an RN with a home health care service provider in Corpus Christi, Texas, and had been in that position for eleven (11) months.
On or about October 7, 2020, through November 18, 2020, while employed as an RN with a home health care service provider in Corpus Christi, Texas, RN lacked fitness to practice vocational nursing in that he was observed showing increased signs of anxiety, nervousness, and irritability. RN’s condition could have affected his ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ conditions and could have affected his ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgements, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.
In response, RN states at times he was emotional in the office due to the constant cussing, humiliation, and verbal abuse she received from the Director of Nursing. RN further states he was experiencing back pain, numbness, and edema in his joints, mainly his right hand. He has seen several specialists and was ordered to have physical therapy for severe tendonitis, a bulging disk, and reversal of normal cervical lordosis.
The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(9),(10),(12)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B)&(1)(T) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(4),(5),(10)(A),(10)(D)&(11)(B).
However, without enough evidence to prove he’s not guilty, the RN lost the case. This is the reason why the Texas Board of Nursing placed his RN license under disciplinary action.
