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 malpractice.
On or about May 21, 2017, an RN from Houston failed to complete a restraint check for an inmate patient every fifteen (15) minutes as required by the facility’s policy and procedures for restraints and/or inaccurately documented in the medical record of the inmate patient, that she had completed every required restraint check. Her conduct exposed the patient to a risk of harm from potentially adverse complications of undetected changes in the circulation of the restrained limbs and created an inaccurate medical record.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the hearing, the RN states that it was a very busy shift on the date of the allegation. She states she expressed her concerns prior to, and on that shift, that the facility was inadequately staffed. The RN states there were several emergencies at the facility the night of the allegation. She states that she made restraint checks every fifteen (15) minutes to the best of her ability given conditions on the unit and that she intended to document accurately.
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.
