Whenever someone filed a complaint against Fort Worth nurses, their license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney.

On or about September 30, 2007, an RN from Fort Worth falsified a physician’s release for a return to work statement and presented the false statement to her employer. The statement indicated the RN was not released to return to work until October 15, 2007, but had not been authorized by the RN’s physician nor any member of the physician’s staff. Her conduct was likely to injure patients in that falsifying a release to return to work statement could have caused a shortage of nursing staff to care for the patients.

During the hearing, the RN states that she never submitted any form of note that was forged nor ever received a note from the optometrist. She states that she was going to follow up with her optometrist to be released back to work. She states she was waiting to submit a note because she had been battling pink eye for a period of about 6 weeks prior to the incident. She states that she normally worked 110-135 hours every 2 weeks and that she liked her overtime check so the idea that she forged a note to obtain sick time makes no sense to her. The RN adds that she feels this whole incident stems back to one event on August 24, 2007 when she submitted a safe harbor request.

Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN. This is why Fort Worth nurses should hire a nurse attorney for help.
