On or about November 1, 2011, while employed as a staff nurse in a health care center in Houston, the RN used the name and number of a Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) nurse practitioner, to call in fraudulent unauthorized prescriptions for two drugs, Hydrocodone and Azithromycin.

The RN could have deceived the pharmacy and the possession of these drugs through the use of unauthorized prescription is prohibited by the Texas Health and Safety Code.

As a defense to the case filed against her, the LVN states all medications were administered as ordered and communicated toattending staff during the course of patient care. Additionally, she states shehad been treated by and believed she had authorization to call in theprescription, but admits she should not have called in these prescriptionshimself.
