The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the administrative agency that is responsible to hear and decide cases involving nurse license in Texas. This agency exists in order to ensure that the professional nurses are equipped with the right set of skills to perform their duties. At the same time, it is also necessary so that the nurses will comply with the laws promulgated by the government as well as the administrative rules issued by the Board to keep their nurse license.
For this reason, every nurse is expected to perform well in his or her daily practice. Otherwise, he can be subjected to a disciplinary proceeding before the Board of Nursing. In case that there is a violation, a complaint may be filed against the nurse involved. This is exactly what happened in the case of Jenny who is an RN in the State of Texas. The RN nurse was charged with one crime and her nurse license was in peril.
In the complaint filed before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON), the RN nurse was accused of removing certain drugs and medications from the Acudose Medication Dispensing System. However, there was an error in the process of doing such an act because the RN nurse took it without a valid physician’s order. As such, she was not authorized to perform such conduct. The complaint further stated that the act of Jenny resulted in a possible injury on the part of the patients. It was emphasized that the act of the RN nurse could have resulted in patients suffering from adverse reactions.
The evidence against the RN nurse was strong. At the same time, she was not able to properly defend her case in court. As a result, her nursing license was revoked. She was no longer allowed to practice the nursing profession in Texas. Avoid the similar thing from happening on your end. Make sure to find the right defense lawyer in case a complaint will be filed against you before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
