It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
On or about September 18, 2013, an RN from El Paso was charged with DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED WITH BLOOD ALCOHOL CONTENT.
The Texas Board of Nursing sent a letter to the RN regarding the issue so then she can have the chance to defend herself.
In response to the incident, the RN states that in October 2010, she was driving home from a friends house around 9:30 p.m. and she got lost. As she was turning into a parking lot a police officer followed her. She states that she explained the situation to the police officer. After doing everything the police officer asked her to do, she was taken to the police station and charged with Driving While Intoxicated.
At the time, the RN did not plead guilty and requested a jury trial. She further states that on April 1, 2013, she was having dinner with coworkers. Shortly after heading home from dinner she was pulled over by a police officer. She was informed by the officer that she did not slow down enough when making a right turn on a prior street. She adds that when questioned if she had been drinking she stated that she had one drink at dinner. After further conversation with the officer, she was arrested for suspicion of DWI.
However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself. Therefore, the Board placed her RN license to a disciplinary action instead.
