Any type of accusations or negligence can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.

Accusations regarding negligence are a must to be observed properly not only by the Board but by a nurse attorney. An example of this happened to an LVN in Lubbock wherein several accusations are filed against her negligence at work.

On July 5, 2007, the LVN engaged in sexually inappropriate conduct by placing her hand between the legs of a 10-year-old male, over his clothing, and rubbing her vaginal area, in violation of the Texas Occupational Code.

As evidence, the staff submitted multiple exhibits and provided testimony of the patient and the mother of the alleged victim.

Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing summoned the LVN to defend her side of the story. However, without a nurse attorney to help her, the LVN lost the case.

Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action.

Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.

The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
