If someone filed an accusation against you, it may compromise your career and the right Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
On or about September 20, 2017, while employed as a Staff Nurse in a hospital in McKinney, the LVN failed to adequately notify the physician, Director of Nurses (DON), and Administrator, regarding the X-ray results for a patient, indicating that the resident sustained a right arm fracture after an unwitnessed fall.
As a result, the patient was not treated for pain, nor transported to the Emergency Room until the following morning, approximately eighteen hours after the fall.
The LVN’s conduct deprived the physician of information required to institute timely medical interventions for the resident, including pain relief.
During the hearing, the LVN states after she accessed the x-ray results from the computer, she texted the results to the physician’s cell phone. She states she never heard back from the physician for the rest of her shift.
The LVN states she told the oncoming shift nurse in report to closely monitor the patient, and admits she didn’t report the incident to the DON or Administrator because she didn’t know it was the policy of the facility to report a fall to them.
The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse attorney could have helped the case become better for the LVN.
Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing found the LVN’s conduct was grossly negligence. Thus, the LVN was found guilty and her LVN license was disciplined and suspended.
She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney.
