Many people want to become LVN or RN in the state of Texas. These individuals strive hard in finishing their nursing degree in order to qualify for the board examination handled by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). This only shows that this kind of profession is really popular in the country. Since the number of professional nurses keeps on increasing every year, the government of Texas has enacted certain rules and regulations for the protection not only of the patients but even the nurses themselves.
Notwithstanding these laws, there are still a high number of registered nurses who keep on violating the statues and special laws enacted by the government. This is the primary reason why there are many complaints filed before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). One of the nurses got involved in a particular case.
On or about January 22, 2015, while employed as a registered nurse with a health care facility, the RN nurse obtained ninety (90) Tylenol #4 and ninety (90) Gabapentin from Walmart Pharmacy. She was able to commit this through the use of fraudulent telephonically communicated prescription under her brother’s name. At the same time, she also used the name of a physician. The conduct of the respondent was likely to deceive the pharmacy and possession of Tylonel#4 and Gabapentin is prohibited by Chapter 481 Of the Texas Health and Safety Code (Controlled Substances Act).
A case was ultimately filed against her before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). The said allegation was fatal to the RN nurse’s capability to perform the essentials functions and duties. The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) found her guilty of the offense alleged in the complaint.
The BON ordered for the suspension of his professional nursing license. Sad to say, the nursing defense attorney who handled her case was not able to properly defend his interests and rights before the Board.
