The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nursing in Texas. Any RN or LVN found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations may be subjected to a disciplinary case if not properly defended by a nurse attorney.
One of the examples where a client failed to hire the right nurse attorney will be discussed in this case. During the initial time of the incident, the RN was employed in a hospital in Houston and had been in that position for three years.
In San Angelo, a former RN was sentenced to life in prison for allegedly killing 10 patients with a paralyzing drug in a Houston hospital nearly six years ago.
The 40-year-old RN pleaded no contest to capital murder, was sentenced after prosecutors presented evidence in a hearing.
A life sentence was automatic because prosecutors were not seeking the death penalty.
Because of the incident, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. However, she failed to appear at the hearing and failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her defend her side.
Because of the incident, the RN was disciplined warning to a suspension of her RN license by violating the Texas Board of Nursing regulation.
Avoid a similar thing from happening on your end. Make sure to find the right nurse attorney in case a complaint will be filed against you before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
