If an RN or LVN is terminated without reason or unjustly, having a Dallas RN attorney could be the best advocate they can find. This is what an RN from Dallas should have done when she was accused with misconduct.

At the time of the incident, the RN was employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in that position for two years and five months.

On or about November 6, 2017, the RN allegedly slapped a patient across the face and threatened to sue the patient. The RN’s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and or psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered or disrupted this patient’s treatment.

Because of the incident, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to hear her side of the story. In response to the incident, the RN states the patient was trying to bite her and other staff while she was attempting to administer medication. According to the RN, the patient subsequently spit in her face and, through a reflex action, not one done deliberately or to cause harm, the RN touched the patient’s face with her three fingers and the palm of her hand.

The Texas Board of Nursing decided to suspend and discipline the RN.
