Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.
An example of this to an RN in Fort Worth in May 2017. During the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed in a medical community in Fort Worth and had been in that position for two years already.
On or about May 18, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a community hospital in Fort Worth, the RN failed to appropriately intervene in the care of a female patient when she had a significant change in condition.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to hear her side of the story. During the hearing, the RN states that she informed the physician of the patient’s change in condition but her documentation is missing from the records.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
