Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for your 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 properly defend them.
On or about April 20, 2017, through May 16, 2017, an LVN from Houston withdrew and administered Hydromorphone 1mg from the medication dispensing system for several patients and Hydromorphone 2mg from the medication dispensing system for another patient, without a valid physician’s order.
Her conduct was likely to injure the patients, in that the administration of medications without a valid physician’s order could result in the patients suffering from adverse reactions, and Respondent’s conduct placed the hospital in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
The LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend herself. She denied all the accusations and cases filed against her. However, due to lack of evidence to support her case and a nurse attorney to help her, she was disciplined and her LVN license has been suspended.
Because of this, the LVN has been subjected to discipline and her license was suspended.
Losing your LVN or RN license can compromise your career. However, a skilled nurse attorney can greatly help you in major cases such as this. For assistance regarding your nurse license case, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An by contacting him at (832) 428-5679.
