Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. A RN from Houston, Texas is just one of the many examples.
On or about November 7, 2004, the RN submitted a Texas Online Renewal Document Licensed Vocational Nurse to the Board of Nurse Examiners for the State of Texas in which she provided false, deceptive, and/or misleading information, in that she answered “No” to the question: “Have you been convicted, adjudged guilty by a court, plead guilty, no contest or nolo contendere to any crime in any state, territory or country, whether or not a sentence was imposed, including any pending criminal charges or unresolved arrest : (excluding minor traffic violations) since the last renewal?
The RN failed to disclose that on or about June 20, 2004, she was convicted of THEFT BY CHECK REDUCED TO THE LESSER BUT INCLUDED OFFENSE OF ISSUANCE OF A BAD CHECK.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the hearing, this is what the RN states: She had written a check for a down-payment on a car which was to have been reimbursed by her in-laws. The payments were not received and she was charged with a misdemeanor and placed on probation. She further states there are no excuses for these things, but she is trying hard to make sure it does not happen again. She also states she did not know that she had to report this offense because she did not think that she read that on the internet renewal form.
However, without valid evidence to defend her side of the story, the RN lost the case.
Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation same as that of the RN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case. Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise you need for a successful outcome by consulting a knowledgeable and experienced Texas nurse attorney. Contact the Law Office of Yong J.
