In every proceeding before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON), the first thing that you need to remember is to get the assistance of a nurse attorney. At this point, it is important to note that exercising your right to counsel will be beneficial on your part. Keep in mind that even if a legal counsel does not represent you, the proceeding or hearing of your case will continue. When this happens, there is a high probability that you will eventually lose in the case.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a medical facility in Garland, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) years.
On or about March 4, 2019, the RN entered into a Consent Agreement with the Board of Nursing suspending his license to practice for deficiencies including failure to appropriately document and failure to intervene independently. Such suspension stayed subject to Probationary Terms for a minimum period of one (1) year. A copy of March 4, 2019, Consent Agreement is attached and incorporated herein by reference as part of this Agreed Order.
In response, the RN states he was overwhelmed by the adjustment to military life, and stress, anxiety, and depression affected his cognitive abilities. Subsequently, the RN was administratively discharged from the Air Force in June 2018.
The LVN’s conduct constitutes a violation of the Texas Occupations Code according to the Board of Nursing. As a result, her license was disciplined and suspended.
