If an LVN or RN violates state regulations and orders from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON), they should get legal assistance from a nurse defense attorney. Their cases could succeed or fail based on this. In fact, if an RN license is improperly defended, it may potentially be suspended or canceled. An RN had been working for three (3) months as the hospital’s director of nursing in Horizon City, Texas, at the time of the event.

On or about May 19, 2021, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN engaged in a verbal altercation with the Patient, slammed a door, and called the resident an “a*****e.” The RN’s conduct was unprofessional and likely to cause the patient emotional harm.

The RN responded without the help of a nurse attorney and stated that the patient called her names first, and as the RN’s way of releasing his frustration he said to the nearby CNA, “Man, he is an a*****e.” And so to his defense, he stated that this does not constitute verbal abuse.

Despite the stated defense, the RN still faced disciplinary action from the Texas Board of Nursing. The RN was given the chance of legal counsel, but he failed to contact and hire a nurse attorney to help with the case. 

All RNs and LVNs who are facing such cases are given the chance of a legal counsel, a nurse attorney at that, as your form of defense against any cases. Instances like the one mentioned above are ineludible in any job, especially in the medical field wherein people are often times deprived of sleep or loaded with work.
