When choosing an attorney for your Texas Board of Nursing matter, you have to make sure it is someone who knows what they are doing and has done this type of representation before. When doing so, hire the best RN lawyer in Dallas.
An RN from Dallas is an example of a nurse who failed to hire a competent and dependable RN lawyer in Dallas.Here is her story.
At the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in that position for approximately one month.
On or about March 31, 2006, the RN allegedly lacked fitness to practice professional nursing in that while on duty she appeared sluggish and confused, her speech was slurred, and her pupils were pin-point. Her condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ 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.
Subsequently, on the same day, the RN was alleged to have engaged in the intemperate use of her prescribed medications, including Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, and Propoxyphene while on duty resulting in the RN potentially being unsafe to practice professional nursing. She produced a specimen for a reasonable suspicion for cause drug screen which resulted positive for Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, and Propoxyphene. The use of Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone and Propoxyphene by a Registered Nurse, while subject to call or duty, could impair the nurse’s ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in the patient’s condition, and could impair the nurse’s ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patient in potential danger.
Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing summoned the RN to defend her side. However, her lack of a competent nurse attorney led to her suspension.
The Texas Board of Nursing disciplined and suspended the RN.
