The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN license and LVN license being defended by a nurse attorney. The Board of Nursing has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas. Every person especially nurses facing difficulties in their careers should know their rights well. The right nurse attorney can help nurses protect their licenses and careers as well.
The disciplinary proceeding before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is an administrative proceeding wherein Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) and Registered Nurse (RN) are charged for the commission of an offense or violation of certain state laws.
The case was about an LVN accused of verbal abuse to a patient.
On or about September 11, 2016, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical center in New Braunfels, Texas, the LVN verbally abused a patient, in that she was witnessed cursing at said patient and subsequently, caused the patient to cry.
Due to the series of events, the Texas BON disciplined the RN and her RN license was suspended. The Board believes that the LVN’s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered or disrupted this patient’s treatment
The LVN failed to justify her case to the Texas Board of Nursing by not hiring the right nurse attorney that will properly defend her. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
