It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing charges related to any case. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
On or about August 13, 2019, an RN was issued the sanction of Limited License with Stipulations through an Order of the Board. A copy of August 13, 2019, Order is attached and incorporated herein by reference as part of this Agreed Order.
On or about August 13, 2019, through the present, the RN became noncompliant with the Agreed Order issued to her by the Texas Board of Nursing on August 13, 2019. Noncompliance is the result of her providing direct patient care when she should not. Section I, Stipulation A of the Agreed Order dated August 13, 2019, states:
“(A) While under the terms of this Order, RESPONDENT SHALL NOT provide direct patient care.
On or about August 13, 2019, through the present, the RN exceeded her scope of practice by administering Botox and other cosmetic filler injections to patients, without required physician orders and supervision. Additionally, the RN is falsely using certification credentials, including “DNC’ and “CANS”, in connection with her practice. The RN’s conduct was likely to deceive the general public who relied on her credentials and believed that she was practicing in accordance with the Texas Board of Nursing Rules and Regulations.
In response, the RN states she was not aware that there were certifying bodies for aesthetics. The RN states she spoke with a lawyer and the boards to help get clarity and removed those certifications immediately. Response states in the past v\hen she was practicing and actively licensed, she had gotten certified to inject and thought that was aesthetics certified. And also stated that she oversees the business side of things as needed. The RN states she has a physician and nurse practitioner and RN that run the various offices. And lastly, states she is 100% aware of her current licensure status and does not provide direct patient care at this time.
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN the chance to defend herself. However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself, especially when the drug screening results were brought up to her. Therefore, the Board placed her RN license to disciplinary action instead.
