If an RN is terminated with unjust reason, they will need a nurse attorney to help them get back to their work. One of the examples where a client failed to hire the right Houston nurse license attorney will be discussed in this case. R150150N9345

On or about February 23, 1985, the RN from Houston was arrested by the Houston Police Department for DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED.

In response to this, the RN states she had driven to the town’s golf course to wait for her husband to finish playing. While there she sat with some friends and drank four beers. She had not eaten yet and didn’t realize how the alcohol had affected her.

On her way home she was pulled over and charged DWI 1st offense. When the court gave judgment her charge dropped to deadly conduct. She is on probation and has to drive w/ the interlock device, report to her probation officer every month and has to wear a SCRAM bracelet. She is attending weekly TAIP meetings.

On or about November 6, 2013, the RN was seen by a doctor to undergo a chemical dependency evaluation.

The RN found the assessment of the RN leads him to conclude that she has substance abuse problems even if not chemical dependency. He recommends she work with a substance abuse professional to morc fully address her pattern and reasons for use as well as ways to curtail her abuse. It would appear prudent for the licensee to address this use before it interferes with her work duties even if she is currently able to perform satisfactorily.

At the very minimum, he strongly recommended that this licensee participate in substance abuse counseling for several months so that close work with a chemical dependency professional can better monitor her use and abuse of alcohol and marijuana. If the licensee is unable to moderate her use of substance, a more intensive program should be considered.

Because of the incident, the RN was disciplined by violating the Texas Board of Nursing regulation. The RN also failed to hire an effective Houston nurse license attorney  to properly defend her side of the story.
