If you also received a letter from the Texas Board of Nursing regarding a case or complaint filed on you, you should hire an effective nurse attorney immediately before it’s too late. Texas nurse attorney Yong J. An is one of those dedicated nurse lawyers who helped various nurses in their cases since 2006.

This is what happened to a certain LVN in Dallas in 2017. During the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed as a staff nurse in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in the position for about ten months.

On or about August 23, 2017, the LVN failed to timely initiate chest compressions and automated external defibrillation (AED), for a patient, who was a full-code, unresponsive, and had no pulse.

Additionally, the LVN failed to document the events of the code in the resident’s medical record. The patient was transported to the hospital where he subsequently expired. Her conduct deprived the resident of timely resuscitation efforts, created an incomplete medical record, and may have contributed to the resident’s demise.

The Texas Board of Nursing gave the LVN the chance to defend herself. She states when she went to assess the resident, she saw his eyes rolling. The LVN states she instructed a nurse aide to call the RN on Hall 100 for assistance.

The LVN states when they got to the patient’s room, the RN was walking in. She states she was unable to get any vital signs or pulse from the resident. The LVN states she left the resident with the RN and ran out to get the crash cart and call a code.

However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself, especially when the evidences were brought up to her. Therefore, the Board placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.

It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing charges. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
