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 November 23, 2018, to an LVN in Hughes Springs. During the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed in a medical facility in El Paso and had been in that position for two years already.
On or about November 23, 2018, the LVN may have lacked fitness to practice nursing in that she overdosed using methamphetamine. Additionally, the LVN has admitted to methamphetamine abuse. Her conduct could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in patients’ conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing patients in potential danger.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to hear her side of the story. However, without valid evidence and expert nurse attorney to defend her, the LVN 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 LVN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
