On or about October 3, 2019, while employed as an RN at a hospital in Amarillo, Texas, RN withdrew two (2) tablets of Diazepam 5mg for a patient from the medication dispensing system in excess frequency and/or dosage of the physician’s order. RN withdrew and documented administration at 0302 and the subsequent dose at 0640. The physician’s order was “Diazepam 10mg Q6H”. RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that the administration of medications in excess frequency and/or dosage of the physician’s order could result in the patient suffering from adverse reactions. Additionally, RN’s conduct placed the hospital in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.

In response to the above incident, RN states she was under a preceptorship and followed by a preceptor during this time.

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)(C)&(1)(D) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(4),(6)(G),(8)&(11)(B).

The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN enough time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right RN/LVN license attorney to handle her case. The negligence of the RN/LVN license attorney led to the decision of the Texas BON to place the RN’s license under disciplinary action.
