An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) 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.
On or about June 26, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to notify the physician when a patient experienced a heart rate of 43 when an annual assessment was completed to determine if the patient was qualified to continue to receive Medicaid Waiver Services. Her conduct exposed the patient to the risk of harm by depriving the physician of vital information that would be required to institute timely medical interventions to stabilize the patient’s heart rate.
In response to the incident, the RN states she only does annual assessments to determine if the patient is eligible to continue to receive Medicaid services, and does not provide skilled services. She states she advised the patient’s parent to seek medical attention as soon as possible, and did not directly notify the physician of the low heart rate.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the defense, the RN said she is very upset by the allegations and that she is innocent. She said she believes it could be a misunderstanding.
Because of the incident, the RN 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 criminal 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.
