An instance of this happened to an RN in Fort Worth. At the time of the incident, the RN was employed in a hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) months.
On or about May 23, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse and providing skilled nursing care to a patient, the RN allegedly violated the professional boundaries of the nurse/client relationship by inappropriately touching the patient’s erect penis with her bare hand. Additionally, the RN allegedly placed patient’s hand on his own penis and told him, “It’s your hand, you can do that, because it’s your hand right?”.
The incident was captured on video surveillance and the RN subsequently admitted to trying to bend the patient’s penis while changing his diaper. The RN”s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and/or psychological harm to the patient, and may have caused delayed distress for the patient, which may not be recognized or felt by the patient until harmful consequences occur.
The Texas Board of Nursing sent a letter to the RN regarding the issue so then she can have the chance to defend herself. However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself. Therefore, the Board placed her RN license to a disciplinary action instead.
