Any charges filed against an RN or an LVN could badly affect their license and their career as a nurse. This is why a nurse should never neglect the need to hire a nurse attorney for defense when such a circumstance happens.

At the time of the incidents, the RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Abilene, Texas, and had been in that position for seven (7) months.

It was on or about August 8, 2019, an RN lacked the fitness to practice nursing in that she exhibited signs of impaired behavior while on duty, including, but not limited to slurred speech, heavy/half-opened eyes, falling as she attempted to get up from a chair and an unsteady gait. The RN’s condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in patient’s conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.

As a result, the RN’s conduct or action was proved to constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10),12)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)0B), and 22 TEX, ADMIN, CODE §217.12(1)(A),C1)(B),0 KE), 43&).

The following incident had caused the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) or referred as the Board to place the RN and her license into disciplinary action. She should have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications on the case. Having a good and reliable nurse attorney around during a trial or any proceedings can result to a different outcome.
