Disciplinary actions could have been thought about by the Texas Board of Nursing if this particular RN from Amarillo, Texas hired a nurse attorney over her case.
As an example, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Amarillo, Texas on or about August 21, 2017, and August 25, 2017, and was on assignment at a Medical Center in Houston, Texas, while working as a Registered Nurse, the RN misappropriated one (1) syringe of Morphine 2mg from a patient, and one (1) ampule of Fentanyl 50mcg from the second patient, belonging to the facility or patients thereof, or failed to take precautions to prevent such misappropriation. The RN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients of the cost of the medications.
In response to the RN’s actions above, her conducts constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section Texas Occupations Code and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE.
