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.
This is the story of an RN who has been charged for alleged medical negligence and malpractices.
On or about April 17-18, 1999, while employed in a medical facility in San Antonio, the RN failed to call the physician or notify the house supervisor between 2400 and 0600 to report the lack of pulses on a patient.
The RN was hesitant to call the physician during the night and waited until the morning, believing that procedures could not be completed during the weekend night anyway. The RN’s lack of timely action was likely to injure the patient from delayed interventions.
The RN was summoned before the Board to defend against the case.
But without the proper help from a good defense attorney, the RN lost the case and she was disciplined and suspended.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action. 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.
