Criminal cases such as murder have been a signature specialty of a criminal nurse attorney when handling cases for some nurses. However, some nurses tend to forget this fact because they really felt like they should be responsible even if they never intended to commit such an error.
A former RN at a Tyler hospital has been charged with murder in the death of a patient and is a suspect in at least two other interventions that left patients in vegetative states.
According to court documents, the RN allegedly engaged in “unskilled and/or unnecessary and/or inappropriate” interventions with three patients, one of whom died.
The last incident occurred in January when the RN told officials that he entered a patient’s room and silenced a beeping IV. Later, he admitted resetting a beeping IV, flushing the arterial line and pumping up the pressure bag.
This issue was filed as a complaint and sent to the Texas Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction in all cases that may affect the status of an RN or LVN’s license in the future. But they advise nurses to attend a hearing first before placing the sentence, which the RN attended for her career’s security.
The Texas Board of Nursing investigated the RN and suspended his license.
As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed his RN license to disciplinary action. It’s too bad that he failed to hire a criminal nurse attorney for assistance if she had every reason to defend himself in the first place. His defense would have gotten better if he actually sought legal consultation from a Texas criminal nurse attorney as well.
