Accusations at work are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations against them can be denied by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an RN in Texas failed to do so.
At the time of the incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital facility in Mission, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and seven (7) months.
On or about June 18, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, and assigned to provide nursing care to a patient, the LVN left her nursing assignment thirty (30) minutes early without notifying the appropriate personnel. The LVN’s conduct exposed the patient unnecessarily to the risk of harm in that leaving the nursing assignment could have resulted in the patient not getting the care needed.
In response, the LVN admits she left the patient’s home thirty (30) minutes early. The LVN states the patient’s guardian told her she wanted nurses to leave when the patient fell asleep at night. The LVN states she left the residence when the patient had been asleep for an hour and his feeding was complete. The LVN states she made sure the patient was safe and in stable condition before leaving.
However, despite her explanation, the Texas Board of Nursing still placed her under disciplinary action as abandoning a patient while on duty is a violation or is ground for discipline, as it may endanger the patient or something bad may happen to the patient during the time that you are not around. For nurses, it is mandatory to finish your shift and informed your supervisor or any in-charge nurse in order for the patient to still receive a continued nursing care.
The LVN could have not received such decision of the Board if she had look for a nurse attorney to properly defend her from any case that they might throw at her.If you’re having trouble against cases that you were accused of doing, and you deny those facts, then seek the help of Nurse Attorney Yong J.
