Promoting a safe and respectful environment is of utmost importance in healthcare settings, and nurses are expected to uphold high standards of conduct and professionalism when interacting with patients and residents. Unfortunately, there are instances when tensions escalate, and inappropriate behavior emerges, putting both the nurse’s professional standing and the well-being of the residents at risk. Such actions not only compromise the RN’s professional integrity but also have the potential to negatively impact the emotional and psychological well-being of the patient involved. When facing allegations of unprofessional behavior, a nurse attorney can provide vital legal guidance, ensuring a fair investigation and representing the RN’s interests throughout the process.

At the time of the incident, she was employed as an RN at a rehabilitation facility in Frisco, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) months.

On or about May 19, 2021, while employed as an RN at a rehabilitation facility in Frisco, Texas, RN engaged in a verbal altercation with the resident, slammed a door, and called the resident an “a*****e.” RN’s conduct was unprofessional and likely to cause the patient emotional harm.

In response, RN states that the resident called her names, and in response, she said to the nearby CNA, “Man, he is an a*****e.”  RN states that this does not constitute verbal abuse.

The above actions constitute 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 §217.11(1)(A)&(1)(B) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A), (1)(B),(4)&(6)(C).

Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side, but the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case and without proper defense, the Texas Board of Nursing then decided to place her RN license under disciplinary action.
