The practice of the nursing profession can become challenging and demanding all at the same time. Every nurse needs to follow several rules and regulations in order to prevent the suspension or revocation of her nursing license. In the past, several cases were filed against different nurses for misconduct and gross negligence which may have put their license in danger if not properly defended by a nurse attorney.
At the time of the incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in Harlingen, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) weeks and two (2) days.
On or about November 27, 2016, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, and assigned to monitor multiple patients, the LVN was observed sleeping.
The LVN on duty that day was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing. She was given the chance to defend her side. She stated that she was not sleeping. She additionally states that she quit the job because she does not sanction the manner in which the facility was run. She also believes that the complaint to the Nursing Board by her Employer is motivated by her earlier complaint that the Clinic was not operating in accordance with the State requirements.
However, due to the lack of a nurse attorney to help her properly defend her side, the LVN eventually lost the case against her. The events led to the finding of guilty on the LVN’s part.
Avoid the same thing from happening in your case. Make sure to take the necessary steps in dealing with a complaint filed before the Board against you or else, your LVN license may be put in danger.
If you received a letter from the Texas Board of Nursing for negligence or any other offense, it is best to consult an experienced nurse attorney who can guide you on the steps you need to take to protect your RN or LVN license.
