Once a charge from the Board is filed, that case becomes a public record and available for the world to see. When this happens, this makes it very difficult to get a job that takes insurance. An experienced nurse attorney in Dallas knows how to avoid these pitfalls.

On or about March 3, 2015, an RN may have lacked the fitness to practice nursing in that she voluntarily admitted herself to a hospital in Laredo, Texas for Alcohol Detox and Major Depressive Disorder. The RN’s condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in patient’s 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.

During the hearing and upon the investigation, with the RN’s statements, the RN stated she took the appropriate steps to preserve her health and fitness to practice nursing. The RN states she has completed the day hospital program and has also attended some sessions in the weekly nurse support group. The RN denies ever working while impaired in any way.

However, the RN failed to properly present and defend her case against the court. She was disciplined warning to suspension of her RN license for violating Texas Board of Nursing (BON) regulation.
