The disciplinary proceeding before the Texas Board of Nurse (BON) is an administrative proceeding wherein LVN license or RN license holders are charged for the commission of an offense or violation of certain state laws. Any RN or LVN in Texas may be subjected to a disciplinary proceeding before the Texas Board of Nursing. Whenever an LVN or an RN finds herself in such a situation, she will need to find the best nurse license attorney in the country. This is important, as it is her only chance to protect her LVN / RN license. Otherwise, the BON may find her guilty in the administrative case and order for the revocation of her RN / LVN license.
This is the incident that happened to an RN in 2018. At the time of the incident, she was employed as an RN at a dialysis center in Longview, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) years and eight (8) months.
On or about January 20, 2018, while employed as an RN at a dialysis center in Longview, Texas, RN exhibited a lack of fitness to practice in that RN was found incoherent and disoriented in the hallway of the dialysis center. Subsequently, RN was transported by emergency medical services to the nearest medical facility where RN was found to be critically ill and required hospitalization. RN’s conduct could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing patients in potential danger.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(12), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(B)&(5).
However, the Texas BON found the RN guilty and her license to practice nursing in the State of Texas was revoked.
