The administrative body in the state of Texas that has authority to hear and decide cases arising from the practice of nursing is the Texas BON. This government agency provides certain rules and regulations that will govern the acts and omissions of every LVN or RN nurse in the country. If you are a practicing RN nurse in Texas, it is important that you comply with all the statutes or laws. Otherwise, you will be subjected to a complaint or case before the Texas Board of Nursing.
As an RN nurse, it is necessary that you avoid committing any violation while you are engaged in the practice of professional nursing. In case that there is a violation, a complaint may be filed against you before the Texas Board of Nursing. This is exactly what happened in the case of Jennifer who is a registered nurse in the state of Texas. The RN nurse was implicated in two charges.
The first one involved an alleged act performed by her while she was employed in a hospital.
The complainant alleged that the RN nurse failed to properly maintain the Controlled Substance Dispensation Record for the patient in that the RN nurse withdrew a dose of “Xanax,” that the RN nurse states was previously recorded as wasted, to administer to said Patient. However, she did not completely and accurately document her action. The act of the RN nurse could have exposed the patient ot the risk of harm in that subsequent caregivers would have relied on an incomplete or inaccurate records on which to base their future plan of care.
The charge against the RN nurse was filed before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). This led to an adverse decision rendered by the Texas Board of Nursing. As a result, his nursing license was revoked with finality. Avoid the similar thing from happening on your end.
