It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
On or about August 2, 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Dallas, the LVN physically abused a patient, in that she pushed the patient in his chest and neck area. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that it could have resulted in the patient suffering from emotional distress and physical injury.
The Texas Board of Nursing sent a letter to the LVN regarding the issue so then she can have the chance to defend herself. During the hearing, the LVN states the resident started to hit her in the head, shoulders, and chest with his clenched hands. She states she called out for assistance, but no one responded. The LVN states as self-defense she put her hand out to try to hold off the patient hoping the certified nursing assistant would come out to her aide.
However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself. Therefore, the Board placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
