An instance wherein an example of this issue was charged against an RN happened on or about May 14, 2015, when the RN knowingly attempted to obtain a medication by misrepresentation, namely hydrocodone, a controlled substance, by seeking to fill a prescription at a pharmacy in Chambers County, Texas.
The said hydrocodone which prescription was in the name of another person, who the RN then knew was a missing person and possibly dead already.
This conduct by the LVN was likely to deceive the pharmacy staff and attempting to obtain a controlled substance by misrepresentation, fraud or deception by submitting and seeking to fill a prescription for a known missing person is prohibited by Chapter 481 of the Texas Health and Safety Code (Controlled Substances Act).
The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse defense attorney should be hired.
The allegations filed on the RN were all denied by her. However, she failed to hire an experienced nurse defense attorney to defend her. The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse defense attorney could have helped the case become better for the RN.
