Facing any misdemeanor or criminal issue may compromise your career and a reliable Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
An instance wherein a misdemeanor issue was charged against a LVN happened on or about October 31, 2016. While employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a healthcare facility in Brenham, Texas, the LVN may have lacked fitness to practice nursing in that she admitted to a staff member to having attempted suicide the night before by ingesting twelve Xanax pills and consuming alcohol.
In addition, the LVN entered into an inpatient program. Her condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected and summoned the LVN to defend her side. During the defense, the LVN states she took twelve Xanax tablets after she had consumed alcohol throughout the day.
The Board finds that there exists serious risk to public health and safety as a result of impaired nursing care due to intemperate use of controlled substances or substance use disorder.
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.
The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse attorney could have helped the case become better for the RN. So if you ever encounter such an issue, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 for a confidential consultation.
