If you have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit unexpected medical errors while on duty.
One such incident happened to an RN on or about January 20, 2016, through January 29, 2016. During the said date, the RN allegedly withdrew two (2) syringes for Morphine 4mg and one (1) ampule of Fentanyl 100mcg from the med dispense system for patients but failed to follow the facility’s policy and procedure regarding wastage of the unused portion(s) of the medications. Her conduct left medications unaccounted for, was likely to deceive the pharmacy, and placed the pharmacy in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
On or about January 19, 2016, through January 29, 2016, the same RN misappropriated one (1) injection of Hydromorphone 2mg, four (4) syringes of Morphine 4mg, and one (1) ampule of Fentanyl 100mcg from three patients. Her conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients of the cost of the medications.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side.
An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
