An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney.  Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the RN license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.

The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN licenses.  The BON has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse’s license.  It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.

On or about December 28, 2016, while employed as a staff nurse in a medical facility in Gainesville, the RN engaged in the intemperate use of three controlled substances, in that she produced a specimen for a random drug screen that resulted positive for those controlled substances.  Possession of such drugs, without a valid prescription, is prohibited by Chapter 481 of the Texas Health& Safety Code (Controlled Substances Act).

Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing summoned the RN to explain her case. However, she failed to hire a nurse attorney to properly defend her side. As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing disciplined and suspended her license.

The use of controlled substances by a Registered Nurse, while subject to call or duty, could impair the nurse’s ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in the patient’s condition, and could impair the nurse’s ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patient in potential danger.

She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney.
