Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire
On or about July 12, 2017, while employed in a medical facility in Tomball, Texas, the LVN lacked fitness to practice professional nursing in that she was found sleeping in the NICU.
Additionally, it had been reported that the LVN would leave the unit for extended breaks without notifying the appropriate personnel or providing reporting on her patients.
The LVN’s conduct could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ 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.
The LVN was given the chance to defend herself. She denied all the accusations and cases filed against her. However, due to lack of evidence to support her case and a nurse attorney to help her, she was disciplined and her LVN license has been subjected for a revocation.
The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.
Because of this, the LVN has been subjected for discipline.
Losing your LVN or RN license can compromise your career. However, a skilled nurse attorney can greatly help you in major cases such as this. For assistance regarding your nurse license case, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An by contacting him at (832) 428-5679.
