If you have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit mistakes such as having intimate relationships with the patient while at work.
On or about March 20, 2018, through March 27, 2018, an LVN from San Antonio, Texas, violated the boundaries of the nurse/client relationship by inappropriately communicating with an Ambulatory Detoxification Program patient through text and Facebook Messenger. Furthermore, her communications with the patient were sexual in nature and intrusive. The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that it could have resulted in confusion between the needs of the nurse and those of the patient. In addition, her conduct may have caused delayed distress for the patient, which may not be recognized or felt by the patient until harmful consequences occur.
During the hearing, the LVN states she provided care for the patient and text her for data for documentation purposes. She thought he ended the text conversation with the patient and starting texting a friend, in which some of the text included sexual content. After the LVN realized she inadvertently texted the patient, she immediately apologized.
An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board 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.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to discipline her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
