If you have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit negligence while on duty such as sleeping while on duty.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Grand Prairie, Texas, and had been in that position for eight (8) months.
On or about August 30, 2020, while employed as a Registered Nurse and assigned to a patient, the RN lacked the fitness to practice nursing in that she was sleeping while on duty. The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that it adversely affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in the patient’s conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patient in potential danger.
In response, the RN denies sleeping while on duty. However, denying sleeping while on duty did not get her away from getting disciplinary action from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN licenses. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse’s license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to discipline her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
