The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by an effective nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
A perfect example of this incident happened to an RN in 2018. At the time of the initial incident, he was employed as an RN with a medical center in Frisco, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and five (5) months.
On or about January 12, 2018, through January 30, 2018, while employed as an RN with a medical center in Frisco, Texas, RN misappropriated one (1) vial of Lorazepam 2mg from Patient A, one (1) vial of Morphine 4mg from Patient B, and one (1) vial of Fentanyl 100mcg from Patient C, belonging to the facility or patients thereof or failed to take precautions to prevent such misappropriation. RN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients of the cost of the medications.
The above actions constitute 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)(E) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(4),(6)(G),(8),(10)(E)&(11)(B).
However, the lack of evidence and expert nurse attorney to defend him led to the Texas Board of Nursing’s decision to place his license under disciplinary action.
