An RN or LVN who is accused of any criminal charge should seek proper help from a criminal 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. You could even get jailed if proven guilty.
On or about October 25, 2016, the LVN submitted to a urine drug screen in which the result was positive for marijuana metabolites. Marijuana contains cannabis, which is listed as a Schedule I controlled substance.
A Schedule I substance has a high potential for abuse and has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States and its use under medical supervision does not meet accepted safety standards.
The LVN did not have a prescription for marijuana. Additionally, she did not have a legitimate medical reason for using marijuana.
Because of the incident, the LVN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing.
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 criminal 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. For a private consultation and other inquiries, it’s best to contact him for assistance by dialing (832)-428-5679.
