When someone filed a criminal complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney.
In Phoenix, an RN charged with raping and impregnating an incapacitated patient at a long-term care center in Phoenix has lost her appeal of a court order requiring a test to determine if she has HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases.
The test was ordered under a law that says people accused of sexual assault are subject to STD tests.
Authorities say the RN was working as a registered nurse in a healthcare facility in Phoenix when she abused the victim.
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. They interviewed the RN.
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.
An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
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.
