Facing any misdemeanor or criminal issue may compromise your career and a good 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 RN happened on or about April 8, 2018. During the said date, an RN from Austin, Texas was notified that a teenaged female patient and male peer engaged in sexual intercourse. The RN failed to report this information in a timely manner to the physician, guardian/parent, supervisor or Director of Nursing.
The RN’s conduct exposed the patient unnecessarily to risk of harm in that failure to report an incident in a timely manner could have resulted in the patient not getting the care they needed.
In response to the allegations filed against her, the RN admits to not reporting the incident to her supervisor or patient’s guardian immediately.
The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.
The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the RN 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.
