On or about December 19, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse and in the role of Emergency Department Manager in Lancaster, the RN lacked the fitness to practice nursing in that she exhibited signs of impaired behavior, including, but not limited to: wandering around and talking obnoxiously about random subjects.
In addition, a staff member asked another staff member if she smelled like alcohol. She also exhibited signs of impaired behavior, including, but not limited to: messy appearance, slurred speech, and not following droplet isolation precautions in that she entered a patient’s room without gloves or a mask. In addition, emergency medical technicians commented on her behavior.
Her condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ 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.
Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN’s license into disciplinary action.
The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
