This is the main reason why you should be careful when doing your job, or else, complaints or charges might be filed against you. Without the help of a nurse attorney, you might get suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing. Well, if you are an RN facing accusations or issues and you do not know what to do, consult a nurse attorney regarding such a matter.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a Hospital in Mission Bend, Texas, and had been in that position for (3) years.
On or about May 4, 2020, the RN was issued a Consent Order, wherein her license to practice as a registered professional nurse was suspended.
On or about March 18, 2021, the RN was issued another Consent Agreement, wherein the RN’s license to practice professional nursing was suspended indefinitely. The suspension was stayed and subject to Probationary Terms and Restrictions for a minimum period of two (2) years.
In response, the RN states her prior substance abuse issues stem from unresolved health issues for which the RN has since received treatment. Two years before she entered the Consent Order, the RN states she referred herself to the Texas Peer Assistance Program for Nurses (TPAPN).
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) gave the RN sufficient time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right nurse attorney to handle her case. This had caused and led to the suspension of the RN license.
