Whenever someone filed a complaint against you violating nurse-client relationship, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Houston, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who were accused of this charge.
On or about August 15, 2006, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Weatherford, the LVN failed to ensure that professional boundaries of the nurse/client relationship were protected in that she failed to intervene when she became aware that her daughter was present in the hospital nursery due to having an interest in adopting an infant who was a patient of the hospital.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that it could have resulted in confusion between the needs of the nurse and those of the patient. In addition, her conduct may have caused delayed distress for the patient, which may not be recognized or felt by the patient until harmful consequences occur.
However, the Board states that her conduct violated the professional boundaries of the nurse-client relationship and was likely to injure the patient in that it could have resulted in confusion between the needs of the nurse and those of the patient. In addition, the LVN’s conduct may have caused delayed distress for the patient, which may not be recognized or felt by the patient until harmful consequences occur.
Furthermore, the LVN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
