Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a good and trustworthy 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.
On or about February 25, 2016, while employed as a Staff Nurse in a children’s hospital in Dallas, the LVN inappropriately waited one hour and twenty-one minutes before administering Tylenol for an elevated temperature of 102.8, then failed to timely reassess the patient’s temperature after administering the Tylenol. When the LVN did reassess the patient’s temperature, more than one hour later, the patient’s temperature had elevated even further to 103.9. The LVN’s conduct could have contributed to cause injury to the patient from adverse effects of elevated temperature, including possible neurological damage and death.
The LVN states during the hearing that the medical records evidences that she was engaged in continuous interventions with this patient, with charting reflecting medications, temps, HR, and other parameters, and updating and notifying the physician.
Even though the LVN had the chance to explain her side to the Texas Board of Nursing, her lack of an effective nurse attorney to help her resulted to her disciplinary actions.
The case could have resulted in a lesser disciplinary action by the Board of Nursing, only if the LVN hired an effective nurse attorney to help her win her case.
Anny form of issues could compromise your career, which is why a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
