Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when an experienced nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.
On or about December 19, 2015, an RN from Beaumont lacked fitness, to practice nursing in that she was admitted to a hospital for treatment of chemical dependency. Her condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.
The RN was summoned before the Board to defend against the case. But without the proper help from a good defense attorney, the RN lost the case and she was disciplined and suspended.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
