There are instances where a nurse attorney can be very useful whenever an RN or an LVN faced criminal charges, complaints, or any accusations. Patients tend to file complaints immediately whenever they experience poorly regarding patient care during treatment. But any RN or LVN can defend themselves when such a thing happens.
At the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a medical facility, in Arlington, Texas, and had been in that position for approximately seven (7) years and six (6) months.
On or about April 14, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse at the said medical facility, 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 with or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
In response, the RN states that 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 that 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, the RN 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.
As a result, of the RN’s conduct, the RN will be facing disciplinary action from the Texas Board of Nursing and may receive further sanctions. The evidence received is sufficient to prove that there is a violation(s) and is cause pursuant to Section 301.452(b)(10) & (13).
