Every practicing RN license holder in the state of Texas is required to follow certain rules and regulations imposed by the government. These laws and statutes were implemented to ensure that the safety of the patients is protected by the state. An RN who commits any violation can place her RN license in jeopardy. The Texas Board of Nursing has the authority to revoke or suspend an RN license in the country for as long as there is a justifiable reason. Failure to hire a nurse attorney could lead to RN license suspension or revocation.
At the time of the incident, she was employed as an RN at a hospital in Georgetown, Texas, and had been in that position for ten (10) years and one (1) month.
On or about 2020, while employed as an RN at a hospital in Georgetown, Texas, RN misappropriated four (4) vials of Ketorolac Tromethamine. Furthermore, on or about July 27, 2020, law enforcement found the medication in RN’s residence and RN admitted to taking the medication from the facility. RN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility of the cost of the medications.
In response, RN states her errors were in judgement beginning with trusting and getting involved with the wrong man. RN relates that she regrets her actions.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(4),(6)(G),(8)&(10)(E).
However, without enough evidence to prove she’s not guilty, the RN lost the case. This is the reason why the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license under disciplinary action.
