Allegations and complaints at work are serious cases, which is why a nurse attorney is needed if you get accused of this kind of scenario. However, there are some nurses who thought they were guilty of the charges and failed to hire a nurse attorney just because they thought it was the doom for their license already. But that is not entirely the case as there is still hope.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a medical facility in Tyler, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years and three (3) months.
On or about November 10, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the said RN lacked the fitness to practice nursing in that she exhibited signs of impaired behavior while on duty, including slurred speech and droopy eyelids. The condition of the RN 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 regards to the incident, the said RN stated that she does not dispute the allegation, and she was not in direct patient care during the incident. She further added that she has remained solid clients several meetings a week, and works with a sponsor.
The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the LVN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications for the case.
