Nursing assessment skills are one of the nurse’ most valuable assets. This is the main reason why whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving a nurse-client relationship, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney.
On or about March 1, 2015, through June 10, 2015, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Temple, the LVN left her patient without adequate supervision, in that she left the patient while she engaged in an intimate relationship with the patient’s brother. The LVN’s conduct exposed the patient unnecessarily to risk of harm in that leaving the nursing assignment could have resulted in the patient not getting the care needed.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side. During the hearing, the LVN states all the interactions between herself and the patient’s brother during work hours were professional and limited to the occasional casual conversation. The LVN additionally states there were no allegations of inappropriate behavior until she ended the relationship.
However, the LVN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation the same as that of the LVN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case. Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise you need for a successful outcome by consulting a knowledgeable and experienced Texas nurse attorney. Contact the Law Office of Yong J.
