An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
One such incident happened to an RN on or about June 16, 2015. During the time of the incident, she was currently employed as a staff nurse in an acute rehabilitation unit in Midland, Texas.
On or about June 16, 2015, the RN engaged in the intemperate use of alcohol in that she produced a specimen for a for-cause drug screen that resulted positive for alcohol (Ethanol). The use of alcohol by a Nurse, while subject to call or duty, could impair the nurse’s ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in a patient’s condition, and could impair the nurse’s ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing a patient in potential danger.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side.
Because of the incident, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
