Nursing assessment skills are one of a nurse’ most valuable assets. This is the main reason why whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving sleeping while at work, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney in Texas.
On or about January 20, 2019 to January 21, 2019, while employed in a medical facility in Fort Worth and assigned to care for a patient, a medically fragile, ventilator dependent child. The RN was found sleeping on the couch by the patient’s mother while on duty. Her conduct deprived the patient of timely detection and intervention in the event that the patient experienced a change in condition.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side. During the hearing, the RN denies that allegation and states that these allegations occurred after she reported an act of violence toward her by the patient’s father.
However, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney in Texas to help her with her case. She also failed to present a valid defense and evidence to support her claim. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation as that of the LVN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney in Texas who can help you in the case. Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise you need for a successful outcome by consulting a knowledgeable and experienced Texas nurse attorney. Contact the Law Office of Yong J.
