Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for the case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to defend them. Unfortunately, an LVN from Chamber County, Texas happens to be one of them.
On or about October 23, 2016 through October 31 2016, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Chamber County, the LVN signed out medications from the individual control drug sheet for two patients but failed to follow the facility’s policy and procedure for wastage of the unused portions of the medications.
Onn the same day, she also misappropriated five tabs of Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen from two patients.
The Texas Board of Nursing was not able to reach out to the LVN due to the actions that she did. However, there was enough evidence which proved the errors of her actions. Additionally, she failed to hire a nurse attorney for assistance, causing her to lose her LVN license.
Any nurse who faces criminal cases they wish to deny should hire a nurse attorney to strengthen their defense. Professionals help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing as an RN or LVN faces an accusation of any charge they never committed. This is just one of the many cases the LVN should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.
Losing your LVN or RN license can compromise your career. However, a skilled nurse attorney can greatly help you in major cases such as this. For assistance regarding your nurse license case, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An by contacting him at (832) 428-5679.
