For complaints regarding use of substances or drugs, a Denton nurse license attorney is the one to contact. However, many failed to do so, resulting in suspension or revocation of their license. Just like what happened to an RN in Denton. Read below to know her story. R150173N6622

On or about May 23 2013, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in Denton, the RN engaged in the intemperate use of Hydrocodone and Hydromorphone in that she submitted a specimen for a reasonable suspicion drug screen that resulted positive for Hydrocodone and Hydromorphone.

Unlawful possession of Hydrocodone and Hydromorphone is prohibited by Chapter 481 of the Texas Health and Safety Code Controlled Substances Act.

The use of Hydrocodone and Hydromorphoneby a Registered Nurse while subject to call or duty could impair the nurse ability to make rational accurate and appropriate assessments judgments and decisions regarding patient care thereby placing the patient in potential danger

In response to the incident, the RN denies the misappropriation. She states she did submit to a drug screen and tested positive. The RN states this was an isolated incident.

However, the Texas Board of Nursing finds that there exists serious risks to public health and safety as a result of impaired nursing care due to intemperate use of controlled substances or chemical dependency.

Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side.

However, without valid reason and defense to properly explain the RN’s side, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.

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 Denton nurse license attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a Denton nurse license attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
