Any type of accusations can be defended if there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action, or revocation. 

At the time of the incident, she was employed as an RN at a medical facility in Brownsville, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years and ten (10) months.

On or about April 4, 2020, while employed as an RN in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a medical facility in Brownsville, Texas, RN knowingly entered the room of a patient, who was under investigation for COVID-19, without wearing an N95 respirator face mask, as mandated during the national pandemic. RN’s conduct unnecessarily exposed the patients, the patient’s families, her coworkers, and herself to a risk of contracting COVID-19.

In response, RN states that this was her first COVID patient, and the patient was very anxious and requested something to help her sleep. RN states she administered Restoril, but the patient suddenly raised out of bed, threw her legs over the bed between the side rails and mattress, and began waving her arms above her head. RN states she responded rapidly with PPE consisting of a bonnet, goggles, surgical mask, gown, and 2 pairs of gloves, and rushed to the patient’s bedside because she feared the patient would climb out of bed or fall.

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)&(1)(O) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A), (1)(B)&(4).

The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled Texas Nursing Law Attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a Texas Nursing Law Attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
