The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RNs in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines. As a matter of fact, the RN license can even be suspended or revoked. This is why you need the right nurse attorney to help your license not to be revoked or suspended.
A perfect example to this happened to a certain RN on August 28, 2016. While employed as RN in a medical center in Irving, the RN obtained Oxcarbazepine from a pharmacy through the use of a fraudulent telephonically communicated prescription, using the name and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) number assigned to a physician.
Additionally, on or about September 13, 2016, she attempted to obtain Oxcarbazepine through the use of a fraudulent telephonically communicated prescription, using the name and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) of another physician.
Her conduct was likely to deceive the pharmacy, and possession of Oxcarbazepine through use of a fraudulent telephonically communicated prescription is prohibited by Chapter 483 (Dangerous Drugs Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
As a defense to the case, the RN states that her daughter did not have medical insurance, and she made the choice to get her daughter the medicine she needed.
However, the Texas Board of Nursing finds that her conduct violates the Texas Occupations Code. As a result, her license was disciplined and suspended.
This is just one of the many cases why every RN in Texas is expected to act with prudence in practicing the profession. Any form of misconduct or fraudulent acts on the part of a licensed RN is never excused.
As a result, the Texas BON found the RN guilty for the complaint against her. Her RN license was disciplined and suspended. She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective, efficient and the right nurse attorney.
