False accusations are one of the cases that an expert nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied over the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an RN in San Antonio failed to do so.
According to the accusation, the RN left early several times to pick up her daughter from school, even though her shift isn’t done yet.
On October 21, 2015, the RN admitted, she left 30 minutes early because there was an event that was causing traffic delays an 1 she wanted to avoid the traffic. She denied leaving early or coming late on any other day. She explained that the patient’s mother was capable of taking care of the patient in the absence of the nurses, and that she never left without being sure that the patient’s mother or another nurse was present when she left.
The RN was also charged with spilled medication. As a defense to this, the RN stated there were two bottles of clonazepam in the patient’s home. She stated that when she arrived for her shift on October 20, 2015, she noted that the medication in one bottle was low, and the mother explained that she had spilled the medication. She documented her conversation with the mother.
Aside from the two allegations, the RN was also accused of sleeping while on duty. To defend this, she explained that she was very stressed, and was not sleeping well. Therefore, she was extremely fatigued when she went to work at the night shift on March 3, 2016.
But without the proof to support her case, her defense wasn’t accepted by the Court.
The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.
False accusations may compromise your career, which is why a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
Because the RN failed to provide a nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
