A complaint at work is a serious case, which is why a Houston nurse attorney is needed if you get accused of this kind of scenario. However, some who thought they were guilty of the charges failed to hire a nurse attorney just because they thought it was the doom for their RN or LVN license already. But that is not entirely the case as there is still hope.

At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Brownsville, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years and six (6) months. 

On or about April 24, 2021, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to intervene for the patient when she witnessed another provider grab and drag the patient by his shirt. The RN’s conduct was likely to contribute to emotional, physical, and/or psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered with or disrupted this patient’s treatment. 

 In response, the RN explains that the provider who grabbed and dragged the patient was not receptive to corrections and had become angry with her for previous issues. The RN states she was eventually written up and became fearful to act and felt helpless. And relates that when the incident occurred, she was fearful of physically intervening as she was worried about the provider’s reaction, and concerned that her intervention could make the provider angrier and cause the incident to escalate instead of deescalating it. 

The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) gave the RN the chance to defend herself.  However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself, especially when the evidence was brought up to her. Therefore, the Board placed her RN license to disciplinary action instead.

It’s best to seek the help of a Houston nurse attorney when facing charges. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these. You may contact Nurse Attorney Yong J.
