A nurse attorney is someone who can help if someone filed a case against you. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases. This incident that an RN committed in October 2017, was one of those examples.
Before the initial time of the incident, the RN was employed in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in that position for about nine months already.
On or about October 10, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in Dallas, the RN provided a work release form for a co worker’s daughter, even though the individual was not admitted as a patient of the facility and was not treated by the RN.
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding errors committed by an RN or LVN. Thus, she was called by the Board to defend against the case.
During the hearing, the RN states she provided care to the patient on October 10, 2017, in her capacity as a SANE nurse examiner even though the patient chose not to pursue further care as an admitted patient. Subsequently, when the patient requested a work release form, the RN provided it to her.
The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications towards the case.
Too bad the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney. If you wish to preserve your career and your license, an experienced nurse attorney is what you need. Nurse Attorney Yong J. An, an experienced nurse lawyer for various licensing cases for 14 years, can assist you by contacting him at (832) 428-5679.
