Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines. As a matter of fact, the RN or LVN license can even be suspended or revoked. To avoid this, it is important to look for the right and experienced nurse attorney.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN license and LVN license. The BON has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
A perfect example of this happened to an RN. At the time of the initial incident, the she was employed in a hospital in Austin, Texas, and had been in that position for just three months.
On or about November 27, 2002, the RN incorrectly transcribed the physician’s orders for Phenylephrine eye drops for a patient. Her conduct exposed the patient unnecessarily to a delay in treatment. Since the Phenylephrine, a dilating agent, was not administered as ordered, the pediatric ophthalmologist was not able to examine the patient’s eyes, as the eyes were not dilated.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side of the story. The RN was given the chance to defend her license but she failed due to lack of proper defense from a nurse attorney. Unfortunately, her license was disciplined.
