Serious offenses are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied over the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an RN in Spearman failed to do so.

On or about November 8, 2013, while employed in a hospital in Spearman, the RN may have caused physical harm to her patient in that she used her right arm to push the resident, resulting in the resident falling backward onto the floor. Her conduct created an unsafe environment and unnecessarily exposed the patient to the risk of injury.

On or about August 24, 2015, through August 28, 2015, the RN falsified his time sheets to read that she left her shifts when she actually left. The RN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility of monies for hours that she did not actually work.

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.

She states that she saw the resident opening the door to the med room only had a few seconds to decide whether to allow the resident in the room or to keep him out. Based on the resident’s known psychiatric diagnoses, including severe impulse control, the RN states she chose to physically prevent the resident from entering the med room to ensure the resident’s safety and avoid any delay in medication administration to the rest of the unit.

This is the reason why the Board of Nursing decided to discipline and suspend her RN license.

Serious offenses may compromise your career, which is why a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.

The Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
