Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for the case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to defend them.
On or about October 3, 2015, while employed in a medical facility in San Antonio, the LVN called the room of a patient and confronted the patient’s daughter regarding an unsatisfactory patient concern, after her assignment with the hospital was cancelled.
In response to the complaints filed against her, the LVN states she called the nurse’s station to speak to the patient’s daughter so she could try to ease her concern that her mother aspirated. It was that phone call that initiated contact with her employer to cancel her shift the night of October 3, 2015. The LVN further states she was not made aware that she was cancelled that night until after she spoke with the patient’s daughter.
The Texas Board of Nursing still thinks her conduct may have caused delayed distress for the patient’s daughter, which may not be recognized or felt by the daughter until harmful consequences occur. And even though the LVN had the chance to explain her side to the Texas Board of Nursing, her lack of an effective nurse attorney to help her resulted to her disciplinary actions.
The case could have resulted in a lesser disciplinary action by the Board of Nursing, only if the LVN hired an effective nurse attorney to help her win her case.
Complaints or allegations could compromise your career, which is why a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
