A nurse attorney should be hired at all times whenever you undergo a case whether a civil or a criminal case, that may affect your license. This is what an RN from Grand Prairie, Texas should have done when facing a criminal case that is affecting her license and work. Take note that the Texas Board of Nursing can settle matters with a nurse attorney if one is present with the respondent during a case.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a health facility in Temple, Texas, and had been in that position for approximately sixteen (16) years.
On or about January 2, 2020, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the said RN lacked the fitness to practice professional nursing in that she was sleeping at the nurse’s station while on duty. The RN’s conduct 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 patients in potential danger.
In response to that, the RN asserts that she was hurting from dental work she had done one (1) week before and took Motrin 800mg., and she did not think it would make her sleepy because she had taken it before.
The following incidents and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications for the case.
If you’ve ever done any errors during your shift as an RN or LVN, and you wish to preserve your career and your license, an experienced nurse attorney is what you need. Nurse Attorney Yong J.
