Whenever someone filed a criminal complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from San Antonio, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who have been disciplined by the Texas Board of Nursing.
A San Antonio nurse whose prescribing practices came under scrutiny by the Texas Board of Nursing has voluntarily surrendered her nursing licenses.
The state nursing board had accused the RN of nontherapeutic prescribing practices, alleging she issued 8,798 prescriptions for controlled substances to patients while working in an emergency room setting during an 18-month period.
The board also accused her of failing to properly screen a 14-year-old patient before giving her testosterone injections for gender dysphoria and providing pre-signed prescriptions to a nurse practitioner student.
The former RN was never charged with any criminal wrongdoing, according to complaints.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. However, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
The RN voluntarily surrendered her registered nurse license, advanced practice registered nurse license and prescriptive authorization through the agreed order.
As a result, the 46-year-old RN can’t practice nursing or prescribe medications in the state of Texas.
