It’s never easy for a nurse to deal with any case, most especially those that involve criminal liability. In most cases, Nurses fail to protect their reputation with their licenses eventually getting revoked as a result of not seeking the help of a Nurse Attorney.

You can count on these professionals to help you get out of these unfortunate circumstances. Nurse Attorneys would do their best to resolve your case and help convince the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) to prove your innocence of any wrongdoing you are accused of. An RN had been working as a registered nurse for two (2) months at a hospital in Marshall, Texas, at the time of the occurrence.

On the 4th of January 2021, while on her shift, the nurse reportedly administered a controlled substance 0.5 mg with a frequency exceeding more than what was prescribed by the physician. This obviously would hold her liable as the RN put the patient’s condition at risk of possible overdose and may have endangered her life. Moreover, the hospital had to bear the same consequences in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.

On the same day of January 4th, 2021, a registered nurse allegedly pulled out 2 milligrams of the controlled substance from the prescription distribution system for a patient without proper pain assessment and inability to document the essential information on the medical records. This misdemeanor would have likely caused unprecedented injuries due to poor judgment on the right care plan and insufficient assessment information.

As the RN faced the said allegations, she mentioned that he had a full patient load, but regardless of the case, he did his best to give equal care to every patient possible. He resorted to such an act because the patient was in great discomfort and he didn’t have any options left as the patient’s primary nurse had yet to arrive, therefore he hurriedly checked the patient’s MAR and saw that a controlled substance could be given, by then he took the medication and gave it to the patient. The RN also clarified that he had done the necessary pain assessment, and admitted that he failed to document it.

The Texas Board of Nursing initiated disciplinary procedures against the RN following those two incidents. She could have sought assistance from a competent Nurse attorney to further clarify the matter at hand.
