Nurses facing cases they never committed or wish to deny should hire a skilled nurse attorney to strengthen their defense. Professional help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing as an RN or LVN faces an accusation of any charge they wish to deny. This is just one of the many cases the LVN from Houston should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.
On or about February 10, 2017, while employed in a hospital in Houston, the LVN misappropriated a computer containing protected patient information, in that she failed to surrender the property after she resigned her position in the hospital.
The LVN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility of the cost of the computer. In addition, her conduct exposed patients unnecessarily to a risk of harm from use, accessing or disclosure of confidential medical information without written authorization and may have placed the facility in violation of HIPAA (The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).
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. During the defense, she simply denied all the allegations against her.
Because of this, the Board of Nursing placed her under disciplinary action but without any suspension whatsoever. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, especially if she wished to deny the accusations.
