It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.

On or about April 7, 2008, while employed as a Register Nurse in a hospital in Greenville, the RN lacked fitness to practice professional nursing, in that she appeared unfocused doing routine tasks; she smelled of alcohol, and she was responsible for a medication error that day. Her conduct 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.

In response to the incident, the RN states: On April 7, 2008, our facility was being audited by the state. My technique of drawing up medications was being observed and I was nervous and made a medication error. My administrator took disciplinary action and has continued to monitor me and will do so for a minimum of eight weeks, post-incident. She will monitor me weekly after that time frame.

The Texas Board of Nursing sent a letter to the RN regarding the issue so then she can have the chance to defend herself. However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself. Therefore, the Board placed her RN license to a disciplinary action instead.
