For complaints regarding misconduct, a nurse attorney is the one to contact. However, many failed to do so, resulting in the suspension or revocation of their license. Just like what happened to an RN in San Antonio. Read below to know her story.
At the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed in a medical facility in San Antonio and had been in that position for three (3) years and two (2) months.
On or about October 19, 2017, the RN allegedly dragged a six-year-old, nonverbal boy with autism down a hallway by her hand. The RN then left the child alone in the hallway until she returned and took the boy by his upper arm and dragged him down the remainder of the hallway.
The RN’s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side.
However, without valid reason and defense to properly explain the RN’s side, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.
Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN’s license into disciplinary action.
The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
