If you are a nurse in Baytown that faces a complaint from the Texas Board of Nursing, it is crucial to hire a Baytown nurse lawyer to know your right and defend your case.
Unfortunately, not all nurses do so which leads to a discipline by the Texas Board of Nursing.
An example of this happened to an LVN in Baytown. During the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed in a hospital in Baytown and had been in that position for one year.
On or about August 5, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Baytown, the LVN failed to re assess and intervene when thee patient had ongoing hypoglycemia after the LVN administered glucagon, for a blood sugar of 37 at 02:00 AM.
Subsequently, the patient had two seizures but was not sent to the local emergency department until 5:15 AM, when the morning nurse came on duty. Additionally, the LVN failed to notify the physician of the seizures, and also failed to appropriately document on the patient.
Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing summoned the LVN to hear her side of the story. This is the part where the LVN should have sought help from an experienced Baytown nurse lawyer.
Any case can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
Because of the incident, the Texas Board of Nursing disciplined the LVN.
