The disciplinary proceeding before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is an administrative proceeding wherein RN in Texas are charged for the commission of an offense or violation of certain state laws. And if you are an RN and have violated these state laws, it is important to have a nurse attorney to defend you against such a case.

This is the incident that happened to an RN in 2019. At the time of the initial incident, he was employed as a Registered Nurse in a mental health facility in Wichita Falls, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) months.
On or about May 11, 2019, through May 12, 2019, while employed as an RN in a mental health facility in Wichita Falls, Texas, RN failed to appropriately assess and document Patient A’s ongoing vital signs and neurological status, after the patient fell and sustained a raised bump to the back of her head. The patient had a history of brain surgery, prior stroke, and was prescribed Plavix, a blood thinner, as a treatment for her medical conditions. RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient from lack of nursing interventions for risk of head injury in a neurologically impaired patient and also resulted in an incomplete medical record.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(D),(1)(M)&(3)(A) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B)&(4).
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN’s license to revocation. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
