An experienced nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead to disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases. This incident that an RN committed on October 1, 2015, was one of those examples.
On or about the said date, the RN was arrested for INTOXICATION ASSAULT W/VEHICLE SBI and DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED THIRD OR MORE, both Third Degree Felony offenses she committed on October 20, 2014.
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding errors committed by an RN or LVN. Thus, she was called by the Board to defend against the case.
During the hearing, the RN states she had been drinking the morning he was arrested and went to the store to purchase more alcohol. The RN further states she was in a car accident on the way. She states no injuries were sustained by either party involved.
The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications towards the case.
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.
