The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by a nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
A perfect example of this incident happened on or about March 23, 2004, to an RN from Dallas. According to the allegation, the RN allegedly failed to notify the physicians that the blood pressure of a patient remained significantly elevated at the time of discharge, and instead, allowed the patient to be discharged home, as ordered. Forty (40) minutes later, the patient returned to the emergency department and was successfully treated with a diuretic for his elevated blood pressure.
The RN’s conduct unnecessarily exposed the patient to the risk of harm from adverse reactions to continued high blood pressure, which include the development of an aneurysm, cerebrovascular accidents, and possible demise.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing. However, without valid evidence and expert nurse attorney to defend her, the RN was suspended and disciplined.
This is just one of the many cases why every nurse in Texas is expected to act with prudence in practicing the profession. Any form of gross negligence, disobedience or any form of offense on the part of an RN or LVN is never excused.
Any type of accusations can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
The RN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
