Cases such as drug use have been a specialty of a nurse attorney when handling cases for some nurses. However, some nurses tend to forget this fact because they really felt like they should be responsible even if they never intended to commit such an error. 

One of the best examples is a RN in Harlingen who was accused of drug usage. According to allegations, long before child abuse arrest, the RN was a nurse accused of using patients’ drugs that were intended for patients.

On or about November 2, 2016, while employed as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) in Harlingen, the RN lacked fitness to practice. Additionally, the RN had to be relieved from her anesthesia case. 

On or about December 13, 2016, the RN lacked the fitness to practice professional nursing in that she exhibited slurred speech, appeared to be under the influence of drugs, and his behavior was erratic. Her conduct could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ conditions, and could have affected his ability to make rational accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger. 

The Texas Board of Nursing investigated the RN and suspended her license.

As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed his RN license to disciplinary action. It’s too bad that she failed to hire a nurse attorney for assistance if she had every reason to defend himself in the first place. Her defense would have gotten better if she actually sought legal consultation from a Texas nurse attorney as well.

So if you’re facing a complaint from the Board, it’s best to seek legal advice first. Texas Nurse Attorney Yong J.
