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 nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
On or about June 18, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a hospital in Abilene, the RN failed to assess and intervene when a patient was experiencing a sustained heart rate greater than 230bpm and a respiratory rate greater than 100 respirations per minute.
This conduct by the RN exposed the infant to the risk of injury from complications of continued cardiac dysrhythmia and respiratory distress.
In response to the incident, the RN states her preceptor listened to the heartbeat and adjusted the leads so there was no need for her to intervene. She further states the condition was a quick self-resolving tachycardia. 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 an RN or LVN is never excused.
Any criminal, negligence or administrative case can be defended, as long as there is a skilled Abilene 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 RN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
