Any type of accusation or negligence can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action, or revocation.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital facility in Austin, Texas, and had been in that position for five (5) months.
On or about June 2018 through June 10, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN accessed the narcotics safe on three (3) separate occasions when there were not any patients needing medications and without documented on the narcotic inventory log. Subsequently, one hundred and six (106) tabs of Hydrocodone 5/325mg were discovered missing. The RN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients thereof of the cost of the medications.
In response, the RN admits to taking 8 pills, approximately ten (10), but denies taking one hundred and six (106).
Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license to disciplinary action.
The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
