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 properly defend them.
On or about April 23, 2017, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in McAllen, the LVN and assigned to provide nursing care to a patient, the LVN lacked fitness to practice nursing in that she was found sleeping while caring for the patient who is completely dependent on caregivers to meet all of the patient’s needs.
Her 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 his ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patient in potential danger.
The LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend herself. She denied all the accusations and cases filed against her. However, due to lack of evidence to support her case and a nurse attorney to help her, she was disciplined and her LVN license has been suspended.
