An experienced nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead to disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital facility in Garland, Texas, and had been in that position for seven (7) months.
On or about April 28, 2020, through April 29, 2021, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the said RN lacked the fitness to practice nursing in that he was found sleeping while on duty. The RN’s condition could have affected his ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in the patient’s condition, and could have affected his ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patient in potential danger.
It was on or about April 28, 2020, through April 29, 2020, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN falsified his timesheet for hours he did not work. The falsification of the RN was likely to defraud and deceive the facility of money paid to the RN for hours not actually worked.
In response to the incident, the said RN states he left the worksite with the permission of the house supervisor and returned within 30 minutes, and this break was reflected on his timesheet. The RN admits he left two other nurses to cover his assigned duties when the house supervisor found him on a nearby sofa, and there were no patients present at the hospital during the time away from his workstation. The said RN further explained that he worked seven (7) consecutive twelve (12) hour shifts and was taking newly prescribed medications for a medical condition.
However, the RN without the help of an experienced nurse attorney to help her defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to discipline her license as a result of her actions. She failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
