Any type of accusations can be defended if there is a skilled Texas nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action, or revocation.
At the time of the initial incident, he was employed as an RN at a hospital in Mission, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and two (2) months.
On or about November 27, 2020, while employed as an RN at a hospital in Mission, Texas, and assigned to provide care to a patient, RN playfully and gently patted the patient on his buttocks while he was changing his diaper. RN’s conduct could have created an unsafe environment and potentially exposed the patient to a risk of harm.
In response, RN admits to gently ‘patting’ the patient on the buttocks while changing his diaper. This was an isolated incident that was never intended in a harmful manner and never put the patient in any actual risk of harm. RN was trying to connect with the patient in a playful manner and was always gentle with his actions.
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)&(1)(M) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A), (1)(B),(4)&(6)(C).
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend his side, but the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help him with his case and without proper defense, the Texas Board of Nursing then decided to place his RN license under disciplinary action.
