A skilled and knowledgeable nurse attorney can provide utmost assistance over cases that you may deny committing. However, a lack of a nurse attorney could subject you to discipline and your license to any possible sanction depending on the severity of your misconduct.
At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a medical facility in Pasadena, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) months
On or about May 6, 2020, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the said LVN lacked the fitness to practice vocational nursing in that she was sleeping during her shift. The conduct of the LVN could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in patient’s conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patient in potential danger.
In light of the incident that happened, according to the RN, on the night in question, at approximately 04:00hours, she became very cold and proceeded to go to her car and get her jacket. After retrieving her jacket, the said LVN proceeded to wrap the jacket around herself and sat in a chair located at the nurse’s station. It was further stated by the LVN that it took about 30-40 minutes for her to warm up. Aller warmed up, and she took the jacket off and began doing her duties for the shift.
However, she failed to hire a nurse attorney for assistance, causing her to face disciplinary proceedings as imposed by the Texas Board of Nursing. This could also lead to losing her RN license if not defended by a nurse attorney.
