Any type of accusation or negligence 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.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a medical facility in Mesquite, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) months.
On or about February 13, 2020, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the said RN lacked the fitness to practice nursing in that she fell asleep while holding 19-month-old Patient EM and almost dropped the child. The RN’s condition 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 incidents, the said RN states that she had just switched from nights to days and while firmly and securely holding the child she momentarily dozed off but immediately regained full awareness.
Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license to disciplinary action.
The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
