If you have a good defense on your side, a skilled nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit mistakes such as intoxicated while at work.
On or about October 15, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse in El Paso, the RN lacked fitness to practice nursing with reasonable skill and safety in that prior to taking on her patient assignment, she disclosed to her charge nurse that she was inebriated after she drank one bottle of wine and several shots of whiskey.
Additionally, the RN informed her charge nurse she did not feel safe to care for her assigned patients and needed help. Her condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. However, she failed to appear during the hearing. Additionally, she even failed to at least hire a nurse attorney to help her defend her side of the story.
A 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 discipline 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.
