Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you fail to hire a nurse attorney for the case whether it is a civil or a criminal case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from suspension or revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to defend them.
An RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Pharr, Texas, and had been in that position for approximately seven (7) years and six (6) months.
It was on or about April 14, 2019, the RN verbally and physically abused a patient in that she slapped the patient’s face and feet multiple times, pulled the patient’s head back by her ponytail, and made derogatory remarks to the patient about her physical state and appearance. The RN’s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and/or psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
In regards to the incident above, the RN states the patient arrived at the Emergency Room unresponsive and covered in vomit. Upon removing her from the vehicle, per protocol, she did a sternal rub and patted her face to try and arouse her, to which she did not respond. The RN states the patient kept falling forward in the wheelchair, and in order to keep her from falling out of the chair, she held her up by the back of her shirt. Once in the patient room, the RN stated she told the staff she was putting on a paper gown and gloves so she did not get vomit all over her scrubs. When the physician came in and asked about the patient, Respondent stated she told him that they did not know much other than her name, 18 years old, intoxicated, unresponsive, and looks like she may have had a child because of her stretch marks.
