When someone filed a criminal complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney.

A Northeast Baptist Hospital nurse is accused of fraudulently using the credit card of a 72-year-old patient he was caring for in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

The patient called the police in late March after she noticed someone had stolen from her purse while she was at the hospital earlier that month, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. She said she was still in the hospital when one of her credit cards was used at a Kohl’s in Live Oak.

Investigators got surveillance footage from the store of a couple using the card. The man in the footage was identified by hospital staffers as the 42-year old RN who had been assigned to take care of the woman on March 18, the day before the credit card was used at Kohls.

The RN was arrested and charged with exploitation of an elderly individual and credit/debit card abuse of an elderly person. Each is a third-degree felony.

The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side.

The RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.

Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation the same as that of the RN 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.
