An experienced Dallas nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead to disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases.

At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Irving, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) months.

On or about December 4, 2020, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN lacked the fitness to practice nursing in that he exhibited signs of impaired behavior, including, but not limited to driving poorly on the facility grounds, hitting traffic cones, a sign, and a trash can with his vehicle, inability to hold items in his hands, unsteadiness, rigidity, and slow speech. The RN’s condition could have affected his ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in patient’s conditions, and could have affected his ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.

In response, the RN denies the allegation. The RN states three hours into his shift, he submitted to a sobriety field test at the request of the nursing supervisor and nurse manager and the nurses concluded that they saw no indication of impairment and they left his office. Respondent states he continued to work until his meal break. The RN states he was driving a rental car and was unaware of the clearance and brushed a trashcan with a Stop sign in it. The security kiosk person asked if he was alright, to which the RN said “fine, and why?” and they told him he hit the trash can, to which the RN stated he had brushed it with his mirror. The RN  states he went back to work and was again approached by the nursing supervisor, who stated the security guard had reported that he had hit a cone. The RN explain d what had happened. The RN states the second approach angered him, so he decided t resign. The RN lastly states that when he was gathering his belongings, he was holding a small heater by the cord, which unraveled and fell to the ground.

The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) to place the LVN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications for the case.
