Marianne is a professional nurse who graduated from a prominent university in Texas. Right after graduation, she immediately took a review and filed an application to take the nursing examination before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). She passed the board examination after one-take. She has long employment history, considering the fact that he had experience in working for over fifteen medical facilities.
Everything went smoothly in the early years of Marianne’s career. There were no problems at all until one day; he received a notice of hearing from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). Apparently, a case was filed against him before the BON. It was alleged in the complaint that while utilizing her Privilege to Practice (PTP), she withdrew Hydromorphone and Fentanyl from the Pyxis medication dispensing system for patients. Nonetheless, she failed to put into records the administration and/or wastage of the medication
Moreover, the RN nurse was also accused of removing and altering important information in the medical records of certain patients. According to the complainants, she was manipulating the entries in these records for some personal use. Clearly, this act is very unbecoming of a professional nurse. Because of this wrongdoing, the lives of patients in the medical institution were placed in jeopardy.
During the hearing of the case, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) gave her an opportunity to depend her side. She appeared before the Board without a lawyer. It was her option to use self-representation. Instead of hiring a competent nursing defense attorney to handle the case, RN nurse Marianne chose to face the complaint on his own, without a counsel helping him. This is a big mistake because the Board ruled that Marriane should be held liable for his own negligence. Thereafter, the BON ordered for the revocation of her license.
