Nurses facing criminal cases they never committed should hire a nurse defense attorney to strengthen their defense. Professional help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing as an Registered Nurse or Licensed Vocational Nurse faces an accusation of any criminal charge they wish to deny. This is just one of the many cases the Registered Nurse from Austin should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.

The incident occurred on or about June 17, 2016, through November 21, 2016. While employed as a staff nurse in a hospital facility in Austin, the RN submitted falsified unauthorized prescriptions for Diazepam, Clonazepam, Hydrocodone, and Oxycodone to multiple pharmacies,  using the name of a three DEA members.

Her conduct was likely to deceive the pharmacy, and possession of Diazepam, Clonazepam, Hydrocodone, and Oxycodone, through the use of a falsified unauthorized prescription is prohibited by Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.

The Registered Nurse was given the chance to defend against her case and present herself to the Board. But because she failed to attend the hearing or even a nurse attorney to defend her, the Board of Nursing placed her under disciplinary action but without any suspension whatsoever. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, more so if she has the proper defense to her case.
