This is the incident that happened to an RN in 2019. At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN with a nursing facility in Beaumont, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) years and one (1) month.
On or about August 21, 2019, while employed as an RN at a nursing facility in Beaumont, Texas, and on assignment in the home of a patient, RN lacked the fitness to practice professional nursing in that she was observed to be sleeping while on duty. 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.
In response, RN admits to the conduct outlined or charged against her.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(9),(10),(12)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B)&(1)(T) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(4)&(5).
