If you don’t have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney surely can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit alcohol abuse but can be defended by a nurse attorney.

Unfortunately, this LVN from San Antonio failed to do so. During the initial time of the incident, the LVN was employed in a hospital in San Antonio, Texas and had been in that position for about two years.

On or about October 16, 2017, the LVN engaged in the intemperate use of alcohol in that she produced a specimen for a reasonable suspicion drug screen that resulted positive for alcohol.  

The use of alcohol by a nurse, while subject to call or duty, could impair the nurse’s ability to  recognize  subtle  signs,  symptoms,  or  changes  in a patient’s condition,  and could  impair the nurse’s  ability to make rational, accurate,  and appropriate assessments, judgments,  and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing a patient in potential danger.

Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. However, she failed to appear during the hearing and even failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her defend her side.

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.

The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license.The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license.  It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.

The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.

A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
