Any nurse such as Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) or Registered Nurse (RN) who faces criminal cases they wish to deny should hire a nurse attorney to strengthen their defense from the case that was placed against them. Professionals help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) as an RN or LVN faces an accusation of any criminal charge they never committed. This is just one of the many cases the LVN from El Paso should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.
On January 6, 2017, the LVN was arrested by the police for Fraud. She was subsequently charged for Obtaining a Controlled Substance which should not a nurse to commit.
Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing summoned the LVN. She says that the arrest was related to obtaining hydrocodone from a prescription that she printed out from her work. She clarifies that she was working for a doctor, but she was also his patient.
She was placed on leave of absence from her employer on October 19, 2018, but returned to work on January 6, 2019. During her leave of absence, she completed six weeks of Intensive Outpatient Program for chemical dependency. She continues to attend aftercare meetings and meets with her sponsor regularly.
Despite her explanation, the Texas Board of Nursing still placed her under disciplinary action. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, knowing that she denied the accusations.
