An experienced and skilled nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead to disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire the right nurse defense attorney as they underwent such cases or complaints. This incident that the RN from Dallas committed in 2000 was one of those examples.
While so employed with said facility, on or about December 9, 2000, the RN solicited Dallas Cowboy Football Tickets from a patient. The RN admitted accepting said tickets and attending said game on December 10, 2000.
Furthermore, the RN’s supervisor was informed by the patient that she received a threatening phone call from the RN. That the RN allegedly told said patient that she was responsible for her being fired and that she knew where she lived.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to hear her side of the story. However, without valid evidence and reasons as well as an experienced nurse defense attorney to hear her side of the story, the RN was disciplined and suspended.
The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She better have sought assistance from a good defense attorney to provide clarifications or advice about the case. This must be the first step a nurse should do if facing a case.
