False accusations are one of the cases that a skilled 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.
On or about October 21, 2017 through October 22, 2017, the RN failed to dispatch a registered nurse to a patient for an assessment when she was notified by the facility staff the patient had a change in condition. Specifically, the patient developed a temperature of 99.3 and a non-productive cough. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient, in that failing to dispatch a registered nurse to assess the patient could have resulted in the patient not receiving the care they needed.
Subsequently, the RN failed to dispatch a registered nurse to the patient when the patient’s husband requested help. Specifically, the husband reported she could not help the patient without hurting or dropping her due to her severe weakness and that the patient was half in her wheelchair and half sliding out. The RN suggested to the husband he should ask for assistance from a friend.
The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient, in that failing to dispatch a registered nurse to assess the patient could have resulted in the patient not receiving the care they needed.
As a defense to the complaints filed against her, the RN denied everything including the alleged negligence.
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.
