(Respondent), of Houston, Texas. GX 1, at 1. The Show Cause Order proposed the revocation of Respondent’s DEA Certificate of Registration MB1907611, which authorizes her to dispense controlled substances in schedules III through V as a mid-level practitioner, as well as the denial of any pending applications to renew or modify her registration and any applications for any other DEA registration, because she does ‘‘not have authority to handle controlled substances in the State of Texas, the [S]tate in which’’ she is registered with DEA. Id. (citing 21 U.S.C. 802(21), 823(f) and 824(a)(3)). More specifically, the Show Cause Order alleged that effective February 17, 2015, the Texas Board of Nursing (TBN) issued a summary suspension of VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:04 Jul 05, 2016 Jkt 238001 Respondent’s ‘‘nurse practitioner license’’ and her ‘‘Advanced Practice Registered Nurse License with Prescription Authorization,’’ resulting in her loss of authority under Texas law ‘‘to handle controlled substances in the State of Texas.’’ Id. The Order thus notified Respondent that her DEA registration was subject to revocation based upon her ‘‘lack of authority to handle controlled substances in the State of Texas.’’ Id. (citing 21 U.S.C. 802(21), 823(f) and 824(a)(3)). The Show Cause Order also notified Respondent of her right to request a hearing on the allegations or to submit a written statement while waving her right to a hearing, the procedure for electing either option, and the consequence for failing to elect either option. Id. at 2 (citing 21 CFR 1301.43). On April 29, 2015, a DEA Diversion Investigator personally served the Show Cause Order on Respondent. GX 4. On May 18, 2015, the Office of Administrative Law Judges received a letter from an attorney representing Respondent. GX 5. Therein, Respondent waived her right to a hearing and provided a written statement of her position on the matters of fact and law asserted by the Government. GX 5, at 2– 3. On February 16, 2016, the Government submitted a Request for Final Agency Action along with the Investigative Record and Respondent’s Statement of Position. Having considered the record in its entirety, I make the following findings of fact. Findings Respondent is the holder of DEA Certificate of Registration MB1907611, pursuant to which she is authorized to dispense controlled substances in schedules III through V, as a mid-level practitioner, at the registered location of Prillenium Healthcare, 6260 WestPark Drive, Suite 260, Houston, Texas. GX 2. Her registration was last renewed in June 2014 and expires on July 31, 2017. Id. Respondent is also the holder of Advanced Practice Registered Nurse License No. AP119040 with Prescription Authorization No. 10237 and Permanent Registered Nurse License No. 784525 issued by the Texas Board of Nursing. GX 3. However, on February 17, 2015, the Board ordered the temporary suspension of Respondent’s licenses, finding that her continued practice as a nurse ‘‘constitutes a continuing and imminent threat to the public welfare.’’ GX 3, at 1. As support for its imminent threat finding, the Board found that Respondent, while employed as a family PO 00000 Frm 00064 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44049 nurse practitioner and owner of Prillenium Healthcare, prescribed 8,614 dangerous cocktail drugs without therapeutic benefit and failed to individually assess each patient and develop an individualized treatment plan. Id. at 1–2 (citations omitted). The Board also found that ‘‘Respondent’s non-therapeutic prescribing practices constitute grounds for disciplinary action.’’ Id. at 2 (citations omitted). The Board also found that ‘‘[o]n or about October 7, 2014 through December 12, 2014 . . . Respondent issued 410 prescriptions for hydrocodone, a Schedule II controlled substance, to patients not in a hospital setting or receiving hospice care.’’ Id. Finding that Respondent ‘‘does not have prescriptive authority to issue prescription for schedule II controlled substances,’’ the Board also found that ‘‘Respondent’s prescribing practice . . . places patients at risk and endangers public safety.’’ Id. The Board then alleged that Respondent’s prescribing of schedule II controlled substances constitutes grounds for disciplinary action. Id. (citations omitted). The Board further found that Respondent owned and operated a pain clinic in violation of a state regulation, and that she issued prescriptions from a location not registered with the Texas Medical Board. Id. (citations omitted). The Board alleged that this conduct also constitutes grounds for disciplinary action. Id. The Board’s Order mandated that both a probable cause hearing and a final hearing on the matter be conducted within 60 days of the entry of its order. Id. at 3. According to Respondent’s statement, a hearing was held on April 7, 2015, at which a state administrative law judge ‘‘extended the temporary suspension finding probable cause of a continuing and imminent threat to the public safety.’’ GX 5, at 2. According to an online query of the Board’s Web site, all of Respondent’s licenses remained suspended as of the date of this Order. See http://www.Board.texas.gov/forms/ apnrslt.asp. In her Statement, Respondent contends that the Show Cause Order mischaracterizes the Board’s temporary suspension as a ‘‘ ‘summary suspension.’ ’’ GX 5, at 2. Respondent argues that the Board’s February 17, 2015 temporary suspension was imposed ‘‘prior to notice and hearing.’’ Id. While Respondent acknowledges that the Board provided her with ‘‘a probable cause hearing,’’ after which it found that she poses ‘‘a continuing and imminent threat to the public safety’’ and thus continued the suspension,’’ she argues that ‘‘this is not a final order’’ E:\FR\FM\06JYN1.SGM 06JYN1
