At the time of the initial incident, he was employed as an RN at a hospital in Mission, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) month.
On or about October 1, 2020, while employed as an RN at a hospital in Mission, Texas, RN slapped and restrained a restrained patient across the face while transporting the patient to the observation room. RN’s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and/or psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
In response to the above incident, RN states the patient was placed in the restraint chair and taken to the seclusion room. RN states on the way to the seclusion room, the patient kept repeating to him, “You’re dead, when I get out, you’re dead.” RN states the patient was coughing something up and attempting to spit it at him. RN states he quickly reached out with his hand to redirect the patient’s face and turn his head so that the patient could not spit on him.
The above action constitutes 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)(B) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(4),(6)(C)&(6)(F).
However, without enough evidence to prove he’s not guilty, the RN lost the case. This is the reason why the Texas Board of Nursing placed his RN license under disciplinary action.
