Cases such as negligence have been a signature specialty of a criminal nurse attorney when handling cases for some nurses. However, some nurses tend to forget this fact because they really felt like they should be responsible even if they never intended to commit such an error.
In San Antonio, an RN whose prescribing practices came under scrutiny by the Texas Board of Nursing has voluntarily surrendered her nursing licenses.
The RN was accused of nontherapeutic prescribing practices, alleging she issued 8,798 prescriptions for controlled substances to patients while working in an emergency room setting during an 18-month period.
She has also accused her of failing to properly screen a 14-year-old patient before giving her testosterone injections for gender dysphoria and providing pre-signed prescriptions to a nurse practitioner student.
This issue was filed as a complaint and sent to the Texas Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction in all cases that may affect the status of an RN or LVN’s license in the future. But they advise nurses to attend a hearing first before placing the sentence, which the RN attended for her career’s security.
The 29-year-old RN from San Antonio voluntarily surrendered her registered nurse license, advanced practice registered nurse license and prescriptive authorization
As a result, the RN can’t practice nursing or prescribe medications in the state of Texas.
Because of the agreement, she no longer faces an administrative hearing on those licenses.
The RN — who owned a nurse practitioner organization and treated many transgender patients and low-income patients — had no comment. However, according to her colleagues and friends, they say the RN certainly never intentionally or knowingly posed a risk to any patient – nor did she harm any patient.
As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license to disciplinary action. It’s too bad that she failed to hire a criminal nurse attorney for assistance if she had every reason to defend herself in the first place. Her defense would have gotten better if she actually sought legal consultation from a Texas criminal nurse attorney as well.
