An RN who committed a malpractice, dishonorable act or violation of state laws may be subjected to a disciplinary action. It is therefore essential to hire a nurse attorney to defend your case. The governmental agency that has the authority to deal with the acts and omissions of the nurses in Texas is the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). This agency is composed of several members who are responsible for hearing and deciding any complaint or case filed before an LVN or RN.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN at a hospital in Frisco, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) years and six (6) months.
On or about November 14, 2020, and January 5, 2021, while employed as an RN at a hospital in Frisco, Texas, RN misappropriated medications belonging to the facility and patients thereof. RN was seen on video removing blister packs from her pockets and putting them in her purse after she left the pharmacy. Respondent’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients of the cost of the medications.
In response, RN admits to misappropriating Seroquel in November and in January as she has a prescription for the medication and was afraid of running out before she could refill it. Also, RN states she misappropriated Promethazine in January due to periodic nausea.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12.(1)(A),(1)(B),(4),(6)(G),(8),(10)(E)&(11)(B).
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN enough time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right RN/LVN license attorney to handle her case. The negligence of the RN/LVN license attorney led to the decision of the Texas BON to place the RN’s license under disciplinary action.
