The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by a Galveston nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
On or about June 1, 2016, through January 30, 2019, while employed as a private duty Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) in a medical facility in Galveston,Texas, the LVN allegedly violated the professional boundaries of the nurse/client relationship in that she spent time with a patient and his family when she was not scheduled or assigned to care for the patient, invited the patient and his family to her home, and went on vacations with the patient and his family. Additionally, the LVN picked up medications from the pharmacy for a patient.
The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that it could have resulted in confusion between the needs of the nurse and those of the patient, and may have caused delayed distress for the patient and the patient’s family, which may not be recognized until harmful consequences occur.
Because of the incident, the Texas Board of Nursing summoned the LVN to investigate what really happened. In response to the incident, the LVN admits that the patient and his family have been to her home on numerous occasions.However, without valid evidence and expert nurse defense lawyer to defend her, the LVN was suspended and disciplined.
This is just one of the many cases why every nurse in Texas is expected to act with prudence in practicing the profession. Any form of gross negligence, disobedience or any form of offense on the part of a RN or LVN is never excused.
Any criminal, negligence or administrative case can be defended, as long as there is a skilled Galveston nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
The LVN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient Galveston nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
