Dealing with a case or any criminal case is never easy for a nurse to handle. Some RNs and LVNs missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation only because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to defend them. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any complaints or any cases over them can be denied or resolved by the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance.
On or about October 5, 2021, the Board provided notice to the RN that an investigation was being initiated into alleged violations of the Nursing Practice Act and/or the Board’s Rules and Regulations Relating to Nurse Education, Licensure, and Practice, as follows:
On or about April 28, 2021, through June 28, 2021, while employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Colleyville, Texas, the RN removed Ativan, Morphine, and Dilaudid from the Medication Dispensing System for multiple patients, but failed to administer the medications, document the administration of the medications, and/or waste the unused portions of the medications. Additionally, the RN pulled Ativan, Morphine, and Dilaudid for patients that had expired.
On or about July 2, 2021, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN engaged in the intemperate use of Opiates and Morphine, in that she produced a specimen for a drug screen that resulted positive for Opiates and Morphine.
On November 1, 2021, the Board received a notarized statement from the RN voluntarily surrendering the right to practice nursing in Texas. A copy of the RN’s statement, dated October 28, 2021, is attached and incorporated herein by reference as part of this Order.
The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing 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.
