Even before the COVID-19 pandemic started its devastating roll across the country, the health care work environment was experiencing challenges – especially for nurses in Beaumont. Unfortunately, the pandemic causes more and more nurses to fight not only for other people’s lives but also for themselves.
In Beaumont, a nurse fights for her life after acquiring the deadly disease. Here is the report by wxyz.com.
People are rallying to support the family of a Beaumont nurse in her own fight with COVID-19. Friends have set up a GoFundMe for Lorna Venus, who got sick after taking care of a patient who tested positive after passing away in March. Lorna has been in the hospital for more than five weeks now, and a friend tells us her husband and two children recently had a FaceTime visit. He tells us her condition is improving. The friends and family of Lorna have created a GoFundMe account for donations to her family.

Notwithstanding the new norm created by this pandemic, it is not a hidden secret that the nursing community is also facing some long-understood truths, that is nurses are underpaid, undervalued and sometimes treated as expendable. But this doesn’t remove the nurse’s will to help treat their patients the best they can.
However, because of the exhaustion this pandemic is giving to the nursing community, some nurses may accidentally fail to do their work nicely. Because of this, they may face a disciplinary hearing by the Texas Board of Nursing.
If you are a Nurse in Beaumont who is currently facing any disciplinary issues before the Texas Board of Nursing, please contact Beaumont nurse attorney Yong J. An, call or text at 832 428 5679 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Mr. An has represented over 100 nurses before the Texas Board of Nursing since 2006.
