One of the saddest things that can happen to a RN or LVN nurse in Texas is losing his professional nursing license. It is a known fact that becoming a licensed nurse in this country is not an easy process. The journey is long which is why it really painful for any RN or LVN nurse to wake up one day realizing that he no longer has a license to practice the nursing profession.
The government body that is responsible for the revocation or suspension of the nursing license is the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). Any nurse found to have violated the laws and regulations of Texas as well as internal rules on workplaces may be subjected to a disciplinary proceeding before the Board. One of the cases filed before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) was for a complaint against a nurse alleged to have been guilty of negligence.
In the complaint filed against Joy, a RN nurse in Texas, it was alleged that she administered medication to a patient without the instruction of a physician. While nothing bad happened to the patient, the hospital still filed an administrate case against the RN nurse. Her act was a gross violation of the rules and regulations mandated by the state hospital where she worked. Moreover, the RN nurse’s acts placed the life of the patient in danger. The continued giving of a wrong medication may cause complication to the health of the patient.
For failure to find the right attorney to handle her case, the RN nurse was eventually adjudged liable for the case filed against her. The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) rendered a decision for the revocation of the nursing license with finality. She was not able to appeal the case due again to the same reason that she did not have a reliable nursing defense attorney.
