There is a long list of individuals who want to become nurses. They strive hard in studying in order to obtain a nursing license in the future. This only shows that this kind of profession is really sought-after in the state of Texas. Since nurses are increasing in numbers every year, the state has implement several rules and regulations to govern the practice of every RN nurse.
Unfortunately, many RN nurses violate the statutes and special laws promulgated by the state of Texas. This is the reason why a lot of complaints and cases are filed before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). One of the RN nurses implicated in a particular case is Annabelle who received a Nursing Degree in a university.
At the time of the incident, Belle was employed as a registered nurse in a downtown hospital for two years. It was alleged in the complaint against her that she lacked fitness to practice her nursing license for failure to comply with the rules set by the hospital. The RN nurse allegedly committed misconduct by verbally assaulting the patient who was admitted in the hospital.
According to the RN nurse was reluctant to accept the comments of the patient about the services provided by the hospital. The patient requested for another nurse to handle her case, which eventually made Annabelle unhappy about the situation. Because of this, both the patient and the RN nurse had some altercations. The act of the RN nurse was a complete violation of the Texas Administrative Code. As a matter of fact, her act was one of the grounds for disciplinary action.
The nurse was designated as the respondent in a complaint before the Texas Board of Nursing. A legal counsel, who failed to raise the proper defenses to acquit her from the charges, represented her before the Board. The case of Annabelle is a classical example of a nursing defense lawyer who failed to protect the interests of her client.
