If you have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit mistakes such as misconduct.
On or about January 29, 2008, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a hospital in Houston, the LVN withdrew Meperidine and Hydrocodone from the Medication Dispensing System (Pyxis) for patients without a valid physician’s order.
Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that the administration of Meperidine and Hydrocodone in the excess frequency of the physician’s order or without a valid physician’s order could result in the patient suffering from adverse reactions.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side.
An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
