Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire an effective 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 November 12, 2014, through December 11, 2014, an LVN from Dallas withdrew two ampules of Hydromorphone HCL 1mg/ml and two (2) tablets of Zolpidem Tartrate 5mg from the Medication Dispensing System (Pyxis) for patients but failed to document, and/or accurately and completely document the administration of the medications in the patients’ Electronic Medication Administration Record (EMAR) and/or Nurse’s Notes.
Her conduct was likely to injure the patients, in that subsequent care givers would rely on her documentation to further medicate the patients, which could result in an overdose. Additionally, Respondent’s conduct placed the hospital in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
The Texas Board of Nursing thus finds that there exists serious risk to public health and safety as a result of impaired nursing care due to the intemperate use of controlled substances. And 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.
Criminal 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.
