Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a Texas nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nursing is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke, suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that a Texas nurse attorney can also defend a nurse’s license against any form of accusations.
On or about April 27, 2020 through June 16, 2020, while employed as an RN at a nursing facility in Carrollton, Texas, RN was accused of the following:
- RN lacked fitness to practice vocational nursing, in that he was observed to be exhibiting impaired behavior while duty; including but not limited to shaking, sweating, repeatedly spilling medication, and being observed with orange-colored medication residue on his mouth. RN’s conduct 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.
- RN misappropriated Nucynta 150 mg tablets, a Schedule II narcotic, belonging to a patient, or failed to take the precautions to prevent such misappropriation. RN’s conduct was likely 13 defraud the patient of the cost of the medication.
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) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B), (4),(6)(G),(8)&(11)(B).
Unfortunately, the Texas Board of Nursing found him guilty of his deeds. His RN license was subjected to disciplinary action. He did not hire a skilled Texas BON attorney to fully defend his case which led to this decision by the Texas Board of Nursing.
