The practice of the nursing profession can become challenging and demanding all at the same time. An RN in Texas needs to follow several rules and regulations to prevent suspension or revocation of her RN license. In the past, several cases were filed against different nurses for misconduct and gross negligence which may have put their RN license in danger. Therefore, nurses need a Texas nurse attorney to defend their case.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an Acute Care Adult/ Gerontology Nurse Practitioner at a medical spa in Arlington, Texas, and had been in that position for only ten (10) months.
On or about October 23, 2020, through November 21, 2020, while employed as an Acute Care Adult/Gerontology Nurse Practitioner at a medical spa in Arlington, Texas, RN practiced outside her authorized scope of practice in the role of Registered Nurse by performing suction-assisted lipectomy with tumescent lidocaine anesthesia for six patients without sufficient medical supervision given her licensure, training, and experience.
In response, RN states she has fully cooperated with the Board’s investigation and has been completely forthcoming. In addition, RN, on her own initiative, completed remedial education courses and ceased all med spa work over a year ago. Additionally, RN states that any practice outside her authorized scope of practice was unintentional.
The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(T)&(4)(A) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §221.12 and §221.13.
Unfortunately, the Texas Board of Nursing found her guilty of her deeds. Her license was subjected to disciplinary action. She did not hire a skilled Texas nurse attorney to fully defend her case which led to this decision by the Texas Board of Nursing.
