Nursing assessment skills are one of a nurse’s most valuable assets. This is the main reason why whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving the illegal use of drugs, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a Bryan nurse attorney.
On or about January 10, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in Bryan, the LVN allegedly engaged in the intemperate and unlawful use of Amphetamines and MDMA (Ecstasy) in that she produced a specimen for a random drug screen that resulted positive for of Amphetamines and MDMA (Ecstasy). Unlawful possession of Amphetamines and MDMA (Ecstasy) is prohibited by Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health & Safety Code. The use of Amphetamines and MDMA (Ecstasy) by a Nurse, while subject to call or duty could impair the nurse’s ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in the patient’s condition, and could impair the nurse’s ability to make rational, accurate, private assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing patients in potential danger.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side.
However, the LVN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. She also failed to present a valid defense and evidence to support her claim. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation same as that of the LVN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case.
