However, there are some nurses who thought they were guilty of the charges failed to hire a nurse attorney just because they thought it’s the doom for their license already. But that is not entirely the case as there is still hope.
Between July 25, 2019, to August 1, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Prosper, Texas, a person expressed concerns that the RN may be impaired.
On or about September 2, 2020, while employed as a Registered Nurse, a patient accused the RN of diverting the patient’s Tylenol #3. The RN submitted a urine screen on September 2, 2020, in which an MRO ruled the test positive for Oxycodone and Oxymorphone.
In response, the RN denies the allegations. On September 2, 2020, the RN’s person and property were thoroughly searched and no Tylenol #3 was found. On September 3, 2020, the RN voluntarily obtained a urine drug screen that tested negative for prohibited substances. MRO over, the RN voluntarily underwent hair follicle testing for over two years without positive results of prohibited substances.
Because of the conduct committed by the RN and as a result, the Texas Board of Nursing decided to discipline the RN and her license.
